Mo Kenney
Mo Kenney is fuelled with quirky songs, a unique voice, and the admiration and support of industry veterans such as Joel Plaskett, Ron Sexsmith, and Gordie Sampson. Since the release of her self-titled debut recording in September 2012, Mo Kenney has toured the country selling record numbers of CDs off-stage and gleaning outstanding reviews

Port Cities
“A mix of east coast culture and indie flare. Each song on their self-titled debut is an individual masterpiece” - Canadian Beats

Port Cities has burst onto the Canadian music scene with their self-titled debut. Marked by stellar songs, dynamic vocals and superior musicianship, the band is receiving rave reviews and are rapidly building a fervent fanbase across Canada and beyond. Port Cities brings together the award winning talents of Carleton Stone, Breagh Mackinnon, and Dylan Guthro.

Mauno
If boredom really does breed creativity, then Nova Scotia weirdo pop-rock sophisticates mauno must be four intensely bored individuals. “Halifax is a weird little town,” says frontman Nick Everett of the Canadian peninsula they call home, where life unfolds in a slow-drift of tiny moments never more than a stone’s throw from the sea. “At times, it’s really boring, which I find useful for writing songs—not being distracted. I arrived here on a failed hitch-hiking trip and just keep getting drawn back.”

Like A Motorcycle
With a view to kicking the hell out of any audience in their path, Like A Motorcycle quickly began playing shows in the Halifax area. They have spent the better part of the last five years cultivating a sound and reputation that has captured attention from audiences and industry alike. Their music is authentic extension of their personalities, something born of "real life," bassist Carson says.
