Roja Valentine - s/t Canadian New
Move Right
Roja Valentine feat. Shadow Young - s/t Canadian
Roja Valentine is an Ottawa-based singer, songwriter, rapper, and producer. Combining the Afro-Caribbean rhythms of her heritage with pop and R&B melodies, Roja delivers a sound that is sure to make you dance until you sweat. Her song “Move Right” is bursting with West Indian flavours due to its addictive dancehall beat, hip-swaying reggaeton feel, and smooth Haitian Kompa breakdown, resulting in a tastefully hot track.

With her latest single, "Craving," Roja shows her mischievous side through a jazz-inspired afrobeat track. She makes use of word play and double entendres as she tells the story of a woman chasing after her deepest desires in the way that the wolf hunts for its prey.

Ash Ravens

Ottawa-based guitarist and singer/songwriter Ash Ravens serenades the soul with a tale of finding warmth and familiarity in new places with his melancholy new single “Home” — available now!

Enriched by a soothing groove and satisfying guitar harmonies, “Home” is a love song about the unparalleled comfort of feeling at home. For some people, feelings of warmth and belonging aren’t associated with a place. As Ash puts it, “the feeling of ‘Home’ for some people might be a
person with whom they feel their truest self.”

Okara - Stories Without Words Canadian
Okara - Stories Without Words Canadian

Sandrine and David met in the summer of 2019 and soon connected over their shared sense of melody and passion for instrumental music. 'Okara' (loosely translating into 'story' within the Mohawk dialect) was founded the following fall. Okara aims at drawing from a diverse musical palette to share stories of the duo through their own musical language.
Gregory Naufal - s/t Canadian New
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!
