John Allaire & the Fi-Delities - Paint it All in Blue Canadian
"Paint it All in Blue" was recorded in Ottawa at Scout Co. Productions in 2019-20 and was completed remotely during the first Covid 19 lockdown. It is a 10-song album featuring eight Allaire originals, an instrumental penned by Scott Clarke, and a cover of a song by Pittsburgh singer-songwriter Tom Breiding, with whom John has toured the US on several occasions. It is a fully acoustic album of rural-inspired folk-rock tunes, co-produced by Allaire and Ottawa’s Steve Tevlin.

Known as one of Canada’s hardest working touring acts, the pre-Covid Allaire averaged 160+ shows per year around the world. He has shared the stage with hundreds of popular acts, including The Black Crowes, Snoop Dogg, Steve Earle, Wilco, Three Days Grace, City and Colour, Blue Rodeo, Alejandro Escovedo, David Lindley, Donovan, HooDoo Gurus, BoDeans, Alanis Morrisette, Drive-By Truckers and many more.

Born in Ottawa, alt-pop artist Vi came to prominence in 2018 with her debut EP “blackwater.” The singer-songwriter spent her early childhood in Qatar and began crafting moody music from her bedroom after moving back to Ottawa in her early teenage years. Drawing her inspiration from heartbreak and hardships, her vulnerable lyrics are known to resonate deeply with others. Due to her unique sound, many say she is like no other.

ISØBEL - s/t Canadian
Canadian electropop artist ISØBEL began producing music in 2020 — with gritty synthesizers, pulsing drum machines, electric guitar and soft vocals, she delivers brooding alternative pop anthems that explore feelings of self-doubt and egotism, relationships, and struggles faced by women. This self-taught artist writes, performs, records and produces all of her tracks in her home studio in Ottawa, Ontario.
