- Cat Clyde (Stratford, ON)

About: Cat Clyde is a brand new artist out of Stratford, Ontario. A fresh take on the classic sounds of yesteryear; breathing new life into the velvety vocal, tack-piano, slide-guitar-style that can instantly walk you through the swinging doors of a packed saloon.
- Digging Roots (Toronto/Ottawa, ON & Winneway/Kahnawake, QC)
web: www.diggingrootsmusic.com // twitter: @_DiggingRoots
About: Imagine an AK-47 that shoots love. The notion is audacious, to say the least. But audacity is Digging Roots’ stock in trade. Juno-winning First Nations power couple Shoshona Kish and Raven Kanatakta have built their sound on a unique musical marriage of unvarnished truth and unconditional love. Digging Roots’ new song and video AK-47 has both, in spades.
- The Shanks (Mono, ON)
web: theshanks.ca // facebook: @shanksmusicAbout: Founded in 2005, the SHANKS are the rocknroll palatinate of songwriter/vocalist/bassist Ian Donald Starkey (Pistolwhip von Shankenstein), along with drummer/vocalist Jody Brumell (Colonel Crankshaft). Their new album, “Prisons of Ecstasy”, was recorded in Sweden by none other than the Hellacopters’ mainman Nicke Andersson. The Shanks have previously earned an EXCLAIM! Magazine “Album of the Year” nomination, and are looking to break Texas at SXSW earning more stateside accolades heralding the upcoming US release of “Prisons of Ecstasy”.
