    Ghost Caravan

    Soul

    Ghost Caravan’s music is orchestral, electronic soul. On her forthcoming record T.O. Confidential, Shaina Silver-Baird collaborated with members of Grand Analog, the Weeknd, Hill Kourkoutis of the Launch, Martha and the Muffins and the Four On The Floor String Quartet. She acknowledges the depth and darkness of the lyrics. “I want to continue to push in that direction: personal/poetic lyrics coupled with grand, dramatic tracks. I want to develop the soulful element along with the orchestral. It’s such an exciting sound; very contemporary and yet derived from something deeper and older.”

    Despite the fact that the music can be dark, Silver-Baird feels that Ghost Caravan is uplifting. “It’s about understanding deep emotional experiences, but also about looking to the positive in life. I write from a personal perspective and find it relatively impossible not to give myself over completely to a song when I’m performing live. People can expect our shows to be intimate. However, the music is quite epic in scope so there is that duality. If everything works, the performers and the audience have an experience together.”

    Rock

    Flowshine is a music group based at the eastern edge of the Canadian Rockies. They are notable for their fusion of genres and energetic live shows. They have toured throughout Canada since 2009, having performed in an eclectic and extensive list of pubs, clubs, campfires, farm fields, cafes, basements, community centres, festival stages, street corners, and the like; from Dawson City, Yukon to Halifax, NS. They have spent a lot of time crafting and road-testing their unique funk / rock/ roots/ fusion and audiences across Canada have warmly embraced them. With a two percussionist approach and strong harmony vocals, their songs are sure to get you dancing and singing along. With their third EP (Gets Me Going) set for release early 2018 they aim to continue tirelessly performing and sharing their music.

    Alternative

    “Insanely grin-inducing…the Leeds four-piece’s shimmering, sun-kissed indie-pop is joyful, unadulterated fun… like the Beach Boys went to town on Paul Simon’s large stash of speed.”
    (Bang The Drum Magazine)

    Marsicans are an emerging indie band from Leeds, England, comprised of a gang of four very different individuals: James, a Beatles-obsessed singer; Oli, an art student turned guitarist; Rob, a ‘bolder than your average’ bassist and Cale, a former samba band drummer. All long-time friends from school and Leeds’ music scene, the current line-up started sampling old synths, singing in harmony and writing songs together in 2014.

    Marsicans’ earworm pop hooks, hectic gig schedule and growing reputation for exciting live shows quickly led to notable support slots (The Pigeon Detectives, Embrace, Catfish & The Bottlemen) and festival bookings (Kendal Calling, Reading & Leeds festivals). Recent releases have sold out their limited CD and vinyl runs and grabbed airplay on Radio 1, 6Music, Radio X, 3FM (Netherlands), BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio along with a sackful of positive coverage from the blogosphere.

    Rock

    Brampton born and raised, 4 music fanatics of varying tastes set out to quench a thirst for theatric music and explosive presentation without losing the melody and beauty that a simple good song contain. Two EPs, one self recorded and a 2nd with an up and coming local producer, with a debut full length en route. Several stylistic and band member changes later, the current three piece aims to combine energy and drama to form an exhausting and enlightening experience.
