    Iduna

    Alternative Rock

    Canada’s progressive modern rock four piece IDUNA brings emotionally raw and sonically polished original music to the masses, taking on the challenges of our world today in both word and action. Passionate and heavy, their twin lead vocal and guitar-driven sound never lets up thanks to the melodic and lyrical interplay between Jason Craig and Trison Boyes. 

    Equal parts beauty and muscle, Toronto Music Reviews  describes their live performance as “intense and epic...”, where ethereal atmospherics give way to thunderous riffs, driving rhythms, and layers of deep groove courtesy of bassist Tim Saulnier. Anchored by the precise and powerful drumming of Craig Koziar, Jason and Trison’s guitars and voices soar triumphantly, sometimes accusingly, always with honest, often gut-wrenching emotion.  This approach is reflected in their sensibilities that pay homage to the loud-soft dynamics of the grunge era and builds on the fundamental sounds of modern alternative rock with a deepening melodic intensity, clarity and stunning harmonies to match.

    After four years of perfecting their sound and performing across southern Ontario, IDUNA are both proud and humbled to share their debut album with their fans and the rest of the world. IDUNA’s new 2017 release, Counterpart is an exploration of our human relationships, the ways in which we are counterparts to one another time and time again. Faithfully capturing their live sound and energy, IDUNA’s Counterpart is the perfect accompaniment to their powerful performances.

    Avenue Inn

    Alternative Rock

    Avenue Inn has carved a unique space in the Canadian music scene since their formation in 2012, playing countless of shows around southern Ontario and sharing the stage with acclaimed artists such as Coleman Hell and Young Empires. Influenced by the amplified and impassioned presence of bands such as the Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon, and the Arkells, the Niagara Falls natives have been carefully crafting their own approach to alternative rock with their new album set to be released in 2018.

    Century Thief

    Indie Rock

    Century Thief is a six-piece indie rock group based in Toronto, Ontario.  They are a blend of introspection and energy, sometimes soft, sometimes noisy experimental indie rock featuring brass, woodwinds, keys, guitars, bass, drums and multi-layered vocal harmonies.

    Century Thief's first full-length album Reverie was released in the fall of 2015, garnering over 230,000 listens on Spotify and receiving airplay and positive reviews by critics in Europe and North and America. In early 2016 they released their first music video for the single Pillar which was created by Shawn Robertson.

    While writing and recording, they embarked on tours throughout Ontario, Québec, and many East Coast provinces. They have participated in multiple Ontario music festivals such as NXNE, Canadian Music Week, Indie Week, In the Soil, Toronto Festival of Beers, TWiMfest, and Out of the Box.

    In the spring of 2016 they isolated themselves at a farmhouse in Northern Ontario for a week and a half to begin working on their new material.  In November 2016 they released the first single You are here, which is about the struggle to grasp beyond the limitations of perception to find a larger meaning. In October 2017 they released their second single “Science of Solace” which is about waking up submerged in a lake and deciding whether to return to the surface, to grow some gills and start a new life, or just sink into the next world. In spring of 2018 they will release the first EP from these sessions.
