    Kelly McMichael (from Peterborough ON, based in St. John’s NFLD), is known for her commanding stage presence and versatile songwriting. Her expressive abilities as a multi-instrumentalist and vocal chameleon make her an in-demand performer and collaborator. Kelly has toured North America and Europe with Sarah Harmer, Rouge, Regina Gently, Gentleman Reg, The Burning Hell, Allie X, and The Hidden Cameras and recently she has been prioritizing her own project.

    Kelly’s debut LP ‘Waves’, on the 2022 Polaris Prize Shortlist, was recorded in St John’s NL with co-producer/engineer/drummer/inventor Jake Nicoll (The Burning Hell), featuring other local heroes Sarah Harris, Maria Peddle and Mara Pellerin. The album has received international praise for rich production, displaying a timeless range of rock and pop sounds with playful melodies and dreamy textures that touch on retro psychedelia. Clever, sensitive and defiant lyrics push past pain and struggle to celebrate friendship and resilience. The content flows between heavy and light, moving through pleasing and thoughtful sonic arrangements like mixed weather with cathartic release.

    Now carrying the momentum of two MusicNL Awards, the East Coast Music Award for Best Rock Album, and the new support of Newfoundland label LHM Records, Kelly McMichael is poised for action.

    As a multi-instrumentalist, Geordie Gordon has spent 20 years playing almost every role possible in a band. He is best known for backing up talented artists such as Islands, U.S. Girls, Andy Shauf and The Weather Station. But now Geordie is setting off on his own, producing and performing solo under his own name. Collecting a lifetime’s worth of musical knowledge, he is creating powerful, emotional music. His acoustic guitar, lush synth orchestration and driving analog beats meld into a striking and modern singer-songwriter style. His first full-length solo record, The Tower, was released September 2nd 2021 on Victory Pool Music.

    Claire Maeve is a musician based in Guelph ON. She writes lyrical and melody-driven songs about longing, loneliness and accepting your own range of feelings. Performing with vocals, guitar and occasional violin-loops, her songs have been described by listeners as “elemental” and “alive”.
