Tiger Bomb is a love-child of passion, feminism, self-love and good vibes. This fledgling musical group is comprised of four women: harpist, poet and multi-disciplinary performer Anda Zeng; your friendly neighbourhood percussionist Danielle Sum; singer, guitarist and lyricist Esther Phua; and bassist/vocalist Jessika Godfrey. Tiger Bomb was formed on a shared desire to increase representation of female-identifying artists and people of colour in the local Toronto music scene. Offering an alternative sound, the band's songs acknowledge the mundane magic of living in our bodies, feeling spiritually homeless, and finding belonging in marginalized places and identities.

Fresh off of the release of his debut album, “The Right Place”, 20 year old Sean Bertram is a formidable talent: a jaw-dropping young guitar-slinger who is equally comfortable in jazz, pop and rock, a singer with a pure voice and dizzying falsetto, and a songwriter who makes the craft look deceivingly easy. Often compared to John Mayer, Jason Mraz, and Allen Stone, his music weaves stories of love, loss, heartache, and self-discovery through harmonically innovative songs that, if they don’t make you cry, will make you dance.

From hostel basements to mood-lit café interiors, Bon Echo has been yanking on heartstrings and pushing the limits of what it's possible to do with thrift store toy keyboards since the Summer of 2017. Comprising of Oliver Compton, Charlie Watson, and the songwriting duo of Ian Taylor and Sami Anguaya, the group sings about passion, paranoia, and nostalgia over an instrumental backdrop that draws just as much from Nova Scotian folk-rock as it does from house music and jazz percussion. Following the release of their debut extended play, "Stop, Move," and a productive year that saw them playing a string of shows across Toronto, Bon Echo returned to their hometown of Ottawa to sell out a headlining bill at Black Squirrel Books & Espresso Bar and begin work on their next project. The group’s double A-sided single, "Dancing / Backsliding" was released in December of 2018.
