3 time Juno winner JENNY WHITELEY is receiving international accolades for her music, most recently her 2nd solo CD HOPETOWN (Black Hen) charting her creative process while remaining true to her bluegrass and country roots. This gifted singer and songwriter writes lyrics capturing the soul and essence ofreal life experiences, covering topics from stalkers to hermit-lady farmers and face down-on-the-floor drunks, then sings them in an achingly pure voice.

Award winning singer songwriter LINDA McLEAN lives in the forests of Northern Ontario. NO LANGUAGE is her second CD (the first released in Canada) and the strong follow up to her critically acclaimed BETTY'S ROOM (2003, Rounder Europe). Ranked among the best of her Canadian contemporaries; "There is a 'holy trinity' of Canadian singer songwriters, Sarah Harmer, Kathleen Edwards and Linda McLean." (CBC Radio) McLean performs with passionate clarity. These are tunes with the ache and retrospective wisdom of a dame in her prime. (NOW Magazine)

The acoustic-based music of Toronto's LAURA REPO is insightful and resonant. Her wistful songs about relevant issues, fractured souls, and the pleasures and poignancy of modern life are heady with wry commentary, sweet observations and urban folk wisdom. Says Brad Wheeler of The Globe and Mail, Repo writes songs remarkably. Performing as part of a trio featuring the extraordinary talents of guitarist/singers David Baxter and Adam Faux, Laura puts forth an affecting array of heartbreaking melodies, beguiling harmonies and a formidable amount of charm.
