Jack Pine and the Fire - Lone Wolf EP Canadian

Jack Pine (Ottawa Singer/Songwriter/Producer Gareth Auden-Hole) grew up with his head in the city and his heart in the northern wild. Enthralled with music, from a very young age he fed his ears a steady diet of Toms [Waits, Yorke, Petty] and just about anything else he could get his hands on. It was not until adulthood that he began writing music of his own, and years later still before he took the name of a tree. By then he'd finished a degree, hitchhiked across his Canadian homeland, played in a handful of bands, and studied music production in Victoria, Ottawa, and London. It was 2011 before work finally began on what would become a self-titled debut album as Jack Pine and The Fire.

Audrey Ochoa - Afterthought Canadian


Audrey Ochoa is one of Edmonton’s most prolific trombone players, playing Jazz, Rock, Pop, Latin, Punk, Ska and whatever other genre will have her.

Audrey released her debut album in 2014, “Trombone and Other Delights” which spent several consecutive months on the !Earshot! Jazz Charts, eventually earning the #5 spot on the annual top 10 for 2014. Most recently, Audrey has completed her second album with her trio “Afterthought”. The new album features her own compositions performed by herself and two of Edmonton’s finest, Mike Lent and Sandro Dominelli. Lending his mixing talents to the trio will Battery Poacher (Dallas Budd), who will be adding the sounds of psychadelia, hip hop and house to this otherwise bare bones trio of Bass, Drums and Trombone.
