****

Gillian Nicola took an unusual route to becoming a folk/Americana singer-songwriter: trained in classical voice, Nicola spent her teens gigging in a classic rock cover band, singing Janis Joplin and Led Zeppelin before launching herself into alt-country when she began writing songs. Nicola’s music centres around her chameleonic vocals - at one moment with a hint of tobacco in her voice, the next outright rocking - strummed and finger picked guitar, and versatile, melodic songwriting. Nicola’s songs are often built around open and alternate guitar tunings that allow her to throw her music theory upbringing out the window. Nicola's debut full-length album will be released on May 3, 2019

Amanda Lowe
Born in Sri Lanka, raised on Prince Edward Island and now residing in Ottawa, ON - this multi-lingual singer-songwriter writes music that can be sweet, heartbreaking, and enchanting. With just her voice, her guitar, a pinch of reverb, and awkward wit she creates a warm inclusive vibe, highlighting life’s dark, cloudy and sunny days.
