Jasmyn is the new solo project created by Jasmyn Burke, former singer-songwriter and frontwoman of the critically acclaimed band Weaves. Having received two Polaris Music Prize shortlists, two JUNO nominations for Alternative Album of the Year and two SOCAN Songwriting Prize nominations, Burke has established herself as one of Canada’s most exciting and fresh voices.
Hailing from a dairy farm in the heart of Saskatchewan, folk singer Ellen Froese has swiftly made her presence known in the Canadian music scene. As a folk artist performing solo (sometimes with her rockin’ back-up band, the Hot Toddies), as well as a founding member of successful bluegrass/folk group In With The Old, Froese has balanced multiple projects for the last few years. Terry Pugh of Clark's Crossing Gazette says of Ellen, “[she has] superb songwriting skills, versatile musicianship, and an unforgettably sweet voice”. Whether performing a folk traditional, a rock 'n' roll classic, or her own compositions, Froese handles it with an air of authenticity – all tempered with a healthy dose of humour and self-deprecation.
Emily Kohlert and Jared Beattie live, work and practice their art on Treaty 6 lands. Formed in June 2020, Actor Director strikes boldly in a new direction, weaving many musical influences, design perspectives, and artistic practices and experiences into a lush and distinct new electronic sound, crafting sonic compositions that strike a stark contrast compared to their previous musical outlets in genres of acoustic folk and brat-punk.
The music encompasses a mix of programming, looping, improvisational composition, layering and editing vocals, non-standard structures and arrangements, conceptual lyricism, and experimental production that dabbles in sampling and found sound, in creating focused, Prairie-based electro-pop.
