Thad Beckman
Songwriter and guitarist Thad Beckman draws influences from English literature and American roots music for his mix of blues, country, folk and rock. "When I was younger, I studied English lit at colleges around the country," Beckman says. "I was interested in the things people thought and felt, and how they could put those ideas into poetry or literature. "My first real loves, though, were blues guys from the early 20th century. Then I got into country music and listened to a lot of Hank Williams, George Jones, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and Jimmie Rogers."

The Kirby Sewell Band
“THE KIRBY SEWELL BAND BRINGS A UNIQUE, MODERN SOUND TO THE BLUES, CAPABLE OF MIXING ROCK, SOUL, GOSPEL & COUNTRY IN THERE, YET STILL BEING TRUE TO THE BLUES. MANY BANDS HAVE TRIED, KIRBY AND HIS OUTFIT SUCCEED. THEY “GET IT”...BRAVO!” – Pat St. John (SiriusXM Bluesville)“ “SEWELL'S LEAD VOCALS ARE AS STEAMY AS A MEMPHIS SUMMER DAY!” - RELIX BIO - “A MODERN LOVE AFFAIR WITH THE BLUES" The Kirby Sewell Band is a high energy, soul slinging R&B band, with a modern twist. Known for their passionate live performances, of what they call Alternative Blues, the monster five-piece posse is a force to be reckoned with. They create melodic heart pulling stories from the depths of an old soul, while breathing new musical life into the genre. Their arrangements are amped up, invigorating, provoking, and playing against the grain. 2012 marked the release of their 2nd album, Bought Myself A Hammer. Instead of going for a sound, the band describes it as an ‘iPod of the Blues’. The album is diverse and pays homage to traditional Blues and its influence on North American popular music. The band is fronted by award winning vocalist Kirby Sewell. Praised as “one of the finest Male Blues vocalists in Canada” by Real Blues Magazine, Kirby’s presence on stage is unforgetable. His ability to connect with the nuances of his own life and share them in memorable vocal performances, leaves audiences with no doubt that the Blues has spent time with him.

Karen Romanchuk
Karen Romanchuk Band Karen Romanchuk is an Alberta, Canada, folk, blues and country music singer and songwriter. Influenced by Steve Earle and Lucinda Williams, her songwriting has developed into her own unique sound. She travelled the road with a cover band..now performs her own songs with passion and her only hope is to touch someone with her music. Karen has added some amazing credentials to her resume throughout her career including opening slots for Willie P. Bennett, Gaye Delorme, Katherine Wheatley, Wendell Ferguson (7 time CCMA guitar player of the year, who also graces her cd "Dance"), Leeroy Stagger, The Good Lovelies (Juno award winners) and Jill Barber just to name a few. Karen was the 4th member of Sirens of Song in a Lethbridge, Alberta show which included Juno award winners Melanie Doane, Lynn Miles and critically acclaimed singer/songwriter, Catherine MacLellan. Karen was chosen as one of only 60 people, businesses, etc. to represent Lethbridge in the visit Lethbridge campaign for 2011. She appeared in brochures, ads and billboards throughout Alberta and BC to promo the city. Karen would also like to praise her vocal coach, Brian Farrell, who has worked with the likes of Paul Brandt and Kalan Porter. Brian has been a very positive influence to her career. Karen is a singer/songwriter that you do not want to miss! Pick up a copy of her new CD for 2014 called Down the Line. Here's some press and a few quotes to leave you with about Karen as a performer and thoughts about her first 2 CD's (Dance 2011 and Shine 2009).... "Karen Romanchuk wraps a rich vocal sound that captures the depth of the story inside her songs. An incredibly honest songwriter who writes with her own mesmerizing melodic and lyric artistic signature." ... Brian Farrell, Artistic Mentor. "You deserve to be here. You are a great singer/songwriter!" Quote to Karen from Juno award winner Lynn Miles during their live performance. (Sirens of Song Concert) "Karen is a hidden gem" ... Mike Spencer, Geomatic Attic, Lethbridge, AB. (Jill Barber Concert, opening remarks) "Your best work yet!"... Mark Campbell (Global Television). "Romanchuk has a definite Lucinda Williams tinge to her world wearied voice. Her melodies are very memorable especially Blue, Blue, Heart. While dance isn't the first thing you think about when hearing Karen Romanchuk's latest CD, good music is. It is an enjoyable and upbeat listen."... Richard Amery (L.A. Beat). "A cross between Waylon Jennings, Steve Earle and Lucinda Williams. She writes strong, rich folk and roots. Her material was formed as if it were at the crossroads between Country Rock, the famous Texas Outlaw and rootsy folk scene"...Ctrl. Alt. Country, Belgium.
