Revered by contemporaries such as Feist and Bahamas, Doug Paisley is perhaps one of Canada’s most understated national treasures. A modern analogue to the greats of 70’s artful folk like Nick Drake, Jackson Brown, and Karen Dalton, Paisley commands attention as both a remarkable storyteller and a formidable guitar player.
“The best songwriters, like Paisley’s forebearers Gordon Lightfoot and John Prine, know how to make simple monuments out of great big and complex truths.” – Gorilla Vs Bear

Jenny Whiteley is a true gem of the Canadian folk scene. With striking vocals and evocative songwriting, critics have compared her to legends like Emmy Lou Harris and Lucinda Williams, raving that she “swings effortlessly from black-hearted back-porch Americana to Laurel Canyon country” (No Depression).
Her debut and sophomore albums won the JUNO Award for Roots/Traditional Album of Year in 2000 and 2003, respectively. She has co-written with many of the country’s greats like Colin Linden and Fred Eaglesmith, and lent her voice to recordings by Sarah Harmer, and countless others.
