Neha Sin - Signs of Pink "il Morning Canadian
Neha Sin is a local Ottawa musician with a warm, honey-folk sound. With four years of professional performance experience in venues, bars and coffee shops, she has created a name and presence for herself in Ottawa’s musical scene. Neha Sin released her Debut EP, Signs of Pink ‘til Morning in November of 2018. Her sound is influenced by the pared down, hazy acoustics of Bob Dylan, Phoebe Bridgers, and Passenger. She finds lyrical inspiration in the contemporary folk verses of The Lumineers, Dan Griffin, and Kacey Musgraves. In her work, the attention Neha Sin pays to experience is unbiased – the smallest of scenes and the grandest of emotions are depicted with the same tender respect. She is a modern folk storyteller, combining silky reverb with tales of nature and mixed-bag love affairs. Her verse focuses on the transitional. How do twenty-somethings move nowadays? Where are they going, who are they leaving, and what do they yearn towards? Neha Sin exists in the liminal space of morning light as she suggests both questions and answers. She floats between places and spaces and chords. Neha Sin sings with all the tender, nostalgic cling of warm honey.

Arcantael - Demember Canadian New
After going to the studio for the first time on my 19th birthday, I decided that it was what I would do for the rest of my life. I am now here to bring you some unique pop/rnb songs influenced by my experience in opera singing and my accent from Paris. I still love using all of my range, doing big vocal runs and singing harmonies. Trynna use my soprano voice to bring my music career as high as it can bring these notes~

I Swear
Alex Goupil - s/t Canadian New
Alex Goupil is a Canadian singer-songwriter based in Ottawa Canada whose alternative electronic indie pop displays a wide range of emotions and atmospheres from dark and brooding to soulful and inspirational.

Growing up, Alex made music with his school mates in his parents’ garage, as per the original definition of GarageBand. Their early demos caught the attention of local music fans, but the rest of the band disintegrated as university beckoned. Alex, on the other hand, worked 60 hour weeks to save money to finance a move across the water to London, the destination of his musical dreams. He accomplished this dream in 2018 when he moved to London and released his first single as a singer-songwriter. Since then, Alex has released multiple singles and played many shows in the United-Kingdom. After two years of living in London, Alex is now back in his home town in Canada with a bag full of experience, eager to conquer what comes next.
