HIDDEN ROOTS COLLECTIVE

Saturday, September 23, 2017

MUSIC

From humble beginnings as a singer-songwriter circle, four Northern Ontario musicians come together to embark on a journey driven by an undeniable musical connection. With swirling harmonies as tall as the pines of their hometown, Hidden Roots Collective creates an immersive listening experience. Their thoughtful arrangements and unique vocal stylings have captivated listeners across Eastern Canada.

 

Exploring genres of folk, jazz, and alternative ethereal, there is an audience for every track on their debut-album, ‘Come Up, Honey’. Covering themes of love, loss and self-discovery, the album intertwines the lives and narratives of four women: Annie Sumi, Holly Cunningham, Brigitte Lebel, and Rose-Erin Stokes.

SWEET ALIBI & JADEA KELLY

Friday, October 20, 2017

MUSIC

SWEET ALIBI: Hailing from what has been described as the music capital of Canada, Winnipeg, Manitoba’s WCMA award winners Sweet Alibi (Jess Rae Ayre, Amber Rose and Michelle Anderson) have captivated audiences since 2009 with their charming and personal performances. With 3 releases, over 360 shows across Canada, 33 plus festival performances, innumerous radio performances and interviews, Sweet Alibi is fast becoming a well-known Roots/Pop group.

Tom Power of CBC Radio 2 describes Sweet Alibi as this, “If Mumford and Sons and the Supremes had a love child it would be named Sweet Alibi.” A fitting characterization for a group that blends soulful and powerful vocal harmonies with the sincerity of folk and the foot stomping energy of roots.

JADEA KELLY: However dark the muse, Jadea Kelly’s music guides the listener on a prolific journey towards light and surrender. Swelling with vocal hooks and ambient guitar delays, her most recent release, love & lust is an honest and compelling catalogue of infidelity, desire, betrayal, forgiveness and human frailty. Receiving the 2016 ‘Contemporary Singer of the Year’ by the Canadian Folk Music Awards, Jadea continues to spend her time living and writing between Toronto and Nashville. Her body of work has earned a number of impressive worldwide reviews and radio play, with tours across North America & Europe. She has performed at a number of Canadian festivals and high profile venues including the Calgary Folk Festival, Edmonton’s Interstellar Rodeo, Elora Ontario’s Riverfest with Blue Rodeo, the National Arts Centre in Ottawa and the Massey Hall Presents concert series in Toronto. Jadea Kelly’s ‘lone wolf’ has been featured on tv shows such as “bitten” aired on the syfy network in the U.S. most recently, ‘beauty’ from “love and lust”, was featured as the accompanying song to a powerful final day opening montage on CBC television, a tribute to canadian hero Terry Fox for the Rio 2016 Paralympics.
