“Claire’s voice takes your breath away. Smokey, earthy, and above all, as pure as the mountain air; a voice that was made for singing these folk/country songs. Her EP is a little diamond.”
-Blues & Roots Radio Worldwide

With powerhouse vocals comparable to Susan Tedeschi and Basia Bulat, paired with the velvety softness, clarity and intonation of Eva Cassidy and The Staves, there is a pureness to Claire's voice that can silence a room; at the same token, she can pull audiences into exciting head bobbing, high energy belting and strumming renditions. Whether it is solo or with her band, the Humber music grad is sure to deliver the highest quality of performance that comes from years of experience delivering excellence on stage. Her warm, funny, and engaging stage manner, on top of her heart wrenching songs, ornate finger picking, and velvety smooth voice are sure to stay with her audience long after the show is over. Claire "sings like a broken sparrow" (Vance Gilbert), and her songs build and breathe and are written without losing the emotional platform great songs come from. She brings a fresh, graceful feel to contemporary folk, and is sure to move audiences with skillfully crafted songs but also charm them with her “wicked sense of humour” (Rik Emmett, Triumph).

Kylie Fox
Based in Saint John, New Brunswick, Kylie Fox offers something bold and charismatic. With a background in theater and classical music, Kylie has crafted and honed an eclectic sound and a poetic style positioned in the Folk-Canadiana sector of singer songwriting. Since the release of her first project BalconyEP(2017), she has been charting on campus radio charts, charting 6th on the National Earshot! Twenty Folk and Roots Charts, and has received airplay on CBC radio, Country 94.1(Saint John) and Hot Country 103.5 (Halifax). Her live show has charmed audiences across Canada with her energy, humor and warmth. Kylie has recently concluded her "Grumpy's Lexus Tour" (New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario) and begins her "Wild Vest Tour" (Alberta and British Columbia) in February, 2019.

Jessica Martin (jessii the artist) is a 25-year-old, Canadian artist and musician currently based in Miramichi, NB. She graduated from the Introduction to Fine Arts program at Algonquin College in 2013 and has been studying her craft independently for over 9 years. In college, she discovered that she had synesthesia; a neurological condition in which different senses are blended. In 2018, she began performing her original music in venues and brought her artwork into the mix. She has displayed art and performed in galleries and venues across Canada. Her artwork is owned nationally and internationally.

Cole Hatty is a 16 year old student who grew up in Noonan and a member of st Mary's first nation who is a part of a first nations women's hand drum group "sisters of the drum" amd has been an advocate for the missing and murdered indigenous women through songs and speeches. Cole has been writing songs since she was 11 and plays 7 instruments. She has been performing and sharing her talent all around fredericton for the past 2 years in hope of raising awareness indigenous issues.
