Jessica Pearson & the East Wind - On the Line Canadian New
While live music has been decimated by COVID-19 that didn’t stop award winning song writer Jessica Pearson from spending time in the studio and creating her haunting melodies with her chilling voice. In fact, she created any entire album and is ready to hit the road when it’s safe. Record Producer Tara Shannon and artist Pearson will be off to the United Kingdom, Ireland and the United States when COVID protocols allow it. Shannon also co-wrote four of the songs on the album.

The ‘On the Line’ release was completely conceived during COVID-19 and during that time Pearson’s song “Ready My Heart” won “Songs from the Heart” at Folk Music Ontario which has over 83,000 streams on Spotify. Jessica was also nominated for Group of the Year with her band Jessica Pearson and the East Wind at the Capital Music Awards in 2021

Solitary Green Witch
Darren Michael Boyd - Last Seen in Canada Canadian New
Rock icons such as Kiss, Alice Cooper, Meatloaf, and Queen were superheroes and practically parental figures to an impressionable young Darren Michael Boyd. As a result, he is comfortable playing all kinds of music, and feels at home with a big theatrical show – regardless of the venue size. After years of touring, writing, recording, Darren has developed his own dynamic musical style, along with authenticity and unprecedented professionalism.

The belligerent tone of Darren’s guitar playing pays tribute to the rock monsters he grew up listening to, while quite literally screaming individuality. Ultimately, his priority is always to put the song first!

Ça passera
Céleste Lévis - Si tu veux tout savoir Canadian
Céleste Lévis a grandi à Timmins en Ontario. La musique fait son arrivée plus tard dans sa vie, suite à de graves problèmes de santé qui obligent la jeune fille à arrêter toute activité sportive. Dans les moments les plus sombres, la musique lui offre une deuxième vie.

Ayant pris goût au métier, l’auteure-compositrice-interprète désire monter sur scène plus que jamais. En 2013, la jeune Franco-ontarienne participe à Ontario Pop, veritable tremplin pour la relève musicale francophone de l'Ontario. Céleste remporte 6 des 8 prix, ce qui lui permet d'accéder au concours Ma Première Place des Arts et d'arriver directement à la demi-finale du Festival International de la chanson de Granby. En 2015, Céleste participe à La Voix et parvient à la demi- finale. Peu après, elle choisit de mettre sur pause ses études à l’Université d’Ottawa, afin de poursuivre son plus grand objectif : percer l'industrie de la musique et faire entendre son art.

Madness in the Spring
Gregory Naufal - The 20/20 Vision Canadian
Raised on the Bruce Springsteen catalogue and countless Pearl Jam bootleg concerts, I (Gregory Naufal) started to take the guitar and music seriously in my last year high school. After discovering all things John Mayer in university, I enrolled in formal guitar lessons at the age of 22 and voice lessons/coaching at 23 (my grades were not great, but I was able to obtain an accounting degree).

It's the hard work and encouragement from friends and family that have got me to this point. I am motivated and excited to release my music for the world to listen to!

Banggz - s/t Canadian
With the release of his newest song, “Who’s Gassing Who?,” Ottawa-based Nigerian rapper Banggz commands the spotlight in a constantly expanding catalog full of pop rappers echoing mainstream tropes.

Banggz sounds like a seasoned vocalist in his newest single, hinting at this musician’s expertise when it comes to producing. Banggz often approaches his music endeavors singlehandedly; responsible for writing, performances, and production, Banggz uses his ever-growing catalog to showcase his prowess when it comes to executing a projec

ooluu - s/t Canadian New
ooluu is Davindra, Asa, Khemavr, Pete, and Thi.

Inducing trance states and altered consciousnesses, ooluu wields mysticism, ritualism, and cosmogony through concussive bass, tribal drumming, serrated guitars, and soaring, shrieking vocals.
