http://theboombooms.com/RococodeAn indie pop duo that weaves together a lush tapestry of synths, guitars and soundscapes around duelling boy/girl vocals and heavy bass drums.
http://rococode.com/Hot PandaThis vivacious group have the ability to harness the spirit of indie punk with melodic and textural maturity. The band draws influence from jangly lo-fi indie pop, atmospheric psychedelic jam bands, 90s power rock, and, like everybody else, The Beatles and Radiohead.http://www.hotpanda.ca/Ben RogersBen Rogers is a folk artist and classic storyteller with a voice like smoke damaged velvet soaked in Tennessee whiskey. Ben can hypnotize audiences with his timeless tales of murder, betrayal, war, justice, love and the human condition, just like a modern day folk troubadour should and does.
http://benrogersmusic.com/Skye WallaceSkye Wallace is on a quest to compile stark elements of Canadian landscape and history into a contemporary musical archive. Often drawn from untold stories hidden in plain sight, Skye’s songs are dynamic, gritty, and orchestral, both the melodies and narratives sticking in your head long after listening.
