Jory Kinjo, jocelyn & lisa
Two girls. Two opposite worlds. Two musical storytellers colliding. Jocelyn Alice grew up in the world of music competitions—from small town fairs all the way to becoming runner up on Canada’s Pop Stars when she was sixteen. Lisa Jacobs grew up playing bass in her family band, at church, festivals and in smoke-filled bars. Although they developed as musicians in different worlds, their love, need and desire to tell a story through music was the same. Jocelyn is a heartbreak hero. Her unique voice, fierce with passion, yet fragile with emotion, frees a story where all who listen are changed. After landing a publishing deal, her songs played on the hit shows One Tree Hill and Pretty Little Liars. Studio producers, Russell Broom and Mitch Lee, hired Jocelyn as a session vocalist to record songs for the hit movie Dear Santa, as well as for nation-wide commercials. She also recently shared the stage with Mos Def. Lisa shares her story through song. The Bass, guitar and piano serve as mediums for conveying love, brokenness,strength and joy. As a bassist, she has toured across North America and internationally. Her groove-ability in all styles solidified her reputation as a sought-after musician. She has shared the stage with Bedouin Soundclash, Theory of a Deadman, Los Lobos, Emerson Drive and many others. As individuals, they have both developed solid careers in the music industry. In 2011, jocelyn & lisa decided to venture out together. In addition to playing live shows, they were featured in the “Crave” documentary by LA filmmaker and best-selling novelist, Erwin McManus and recorded a commercial for Habitat for Humanity. December 2012 marks the release of their first EP, “Weary Warrior”. A track from this album is featured in the documentary, “1000 Days” by award-winning director, Jeth Weinrich (Jann Arden, Chantal Kreviazuk, 54-40), who is also producing a music video for the song. jocelyn & lisa have been selected as guest artists on CBC Radio and to perform at the TransCanada Alberta Music Series. The music they create embodies the ongoing parallels in their lives - much light/much darkness, much love/much hurt, abundant mistakes/extravagant grace, desperate brokenness/undeniable strength. Songwriting, storytelling and passionate performance are packaged into a unique sound-blend of pop, soul, reggae and funk. jocelyn & lisa have an undeniable chemistry that permeates the music and penetrates the listener.

Shannon Lyon
Shannon Lyon gained notoriety in his hometown of Kitchener (west of Toronto in the heart of southern Ontario), almost immediately after forming his first band, Strange Days, in 1989. Following one album and national touring (their east coast jaunt saw the fledgling Tea Party joining them as support act), they dissolved, with Lyon opting for a solo career. The ensuing five years saw him walk a line between acoustic troubadour and flat-out rocker, all the while continuing to build a loyal Canadian audience with each album. In 1999, he signed with Toronto's Square Dog Records for Summer Blonde, the first album to fully display his newly-realized introspective songwriting style. The album went on to become a favourite among roots rock aficianados in Canada, and Lyon (accompanied by the World Record Players) spent the next year sharing stages with everyone from Blue Rodeo to Richard Buckner to Oh Susanna.In early 2001, Lyon made his first trip to Holland on the advice of fellow singer/songwriter Rob Lamothe. Acceptance was even more instantaneous than it had been in Canada, and by the end of the year, Lyon had signed to Dutch label Inbetweens Records, which released Dharma in Europe in March, 2002.The following year, he recorded Wandered in Holland, which attracted the attention of V2 Records back in Toronto. Lyon became the first Canadian artist to sign to V2 Records, joining the likes of The White Stripes and Moby on V2's roster. More touring ensued, including Lyon's first trip to Australia, where his honest, straightforward approach instantly connected with audiences, leading to several thousand sales during his brief stay. In 2004, Lyon helped start Canadian roots label, Busted Flat Records, and its first releases were live albums from his various worldwide tours. The first, Bound, was recorded in Holland; the second, Someday Mourning, in Germany. Although these are primarly solo acoustic outings, Lyon has not forgotten his rock roots, and continues to tour and record with his longtime band, the World Record Players. At present you can find Lyon somewhere around the globe supporting his new album Safe Inside released February 2006.

Magazine, Huffington Post etc…) and a sophomore release in the works, this fearless four piece is sure to keep garnering attention far beyond the traditional bluegrass fan-base.

Souls in Rhythm
As long-standing members of Calgary’s high-caliber music scene, Souls in Rhythm (a.k.a. SiR) takes the fundamentals of classic funk and soul, and blends them with modern R&B and hip-hop, to deliver their own brand of ‘Alberta Funk’. As George Clinton said, “The more one thinks about it, the harder it is to get the feel of funk. It’s just done.” Rather than being impressionists of master/classic artists of the genre, SiR has a modern sound and seeks to innovate and contemporize a musical form they love. Canadian Musician Magazine elaborates; “smooth, soulful grooves, melody lines that stay in your head and polished vocals”, SiR’s music proudly pays homage to tradition, while at the same time expanding boundaries. "Souls in Rhythm's songwriting possesses an earnestness missing in mainstream music" - FFWD Weekly After taking a multi-year hiatus, Souls in Rhythm released their third record in 2013. Named for their title track (a collab with rising hip-hop hero and fellow Calgarian, Transit), Another Round, marks a new beginning for SiR. Since its release earlier this year, they’ve shot three elaborate supporting videos, toured most of western Canada, and shared the bill with American hip-hop icon, Common. With their new record, SiR is eager and committed to working extremely hard to connect with, and expand its Canadian fan-base. They aim to deliver memorable, rewarding live performances, and to continue to write and produce impactful music. "Souls in Rhythm has found a unique niche somewhere between the pop radio crowd and the folk and roots scene, with songs as influenced as prominently by Prince and Michael Jackson as Al Green and Jerry Lee Lewis." - The Edmonton Sun After release of their 2008 sophomore album Funklore (which was nominated for a WCMA in 2009), the band began operating nationally, touring much of the country. Soon after, they found themselves pulled in separate directions due to some tremendous individual opportunities - most notably lead singer, Scott Henderson’s involvement as music arranger/vocal coach on GlobalTV’s Canada Sings, and Spencer Cheyne and Craig Newnes’ establishment of their recording studio, The Station Recording Co., whose recent clients’ recordings have been nominated for WCMA, CCMA, and Juno awards. While pursuing these opportunities, they all longed to reconnect and push further and higher. With the release of Another Round, the band’s commitment and determination is now to transcend each member’s individual successes and elevate SiR to national prominence (…and beyond!) "SiR is a funk to get in to...R&B act is the real deal" - Calgary Sun With a live show that delivers “hard-hitting bass, rhythmic guitar, rock-solid drums and dancing keys, all welded together with [Scott] Henderson’s polished vocals” (Kamloops This Week), SiR will make you feel its music, inevitably ending with asses shaking on the dance floor! SiR has also opened for Hey Ocean, Colin James, Boyz II Men, Swollen Members, to name a few. Having toured independently throughout Canada, SiR has also performed at a variety of high-profile events including the Grey Cup Fan Festival, the WCMA’s, the Alberta Summer Games, 2010 Olympics CP Spirit Train Event, JunoFest, The Banff World Television Festival, NXNE, and CapitalEX.

Boogie Patrol
Boogie Patrol has been pumping out their unique blend of Blues, Funk, Soul and R&B across Western Canada since 2007, captivating crowds wherever they go. "I'm HUNGRY" were the two little words that started it all one auspicious afternoon at the seminal Blues on Whyte in Edmonton, Alberta. Hungry to play music, hungry to play the BLUES, Boogie Patrol's harmonica hound "Rott'n" Dan and experienced guitarist Yuji Ihara quickly joined creative forces and began collaborating. They soon enlisted the help of proficient bassist Nigel Gale to hold down the low end. With the addition of Sean Grieve's tantalizing touch on the keyboards, and JJ's orchestration of Blues, Jazz and Funk into Afro-Cuban, Brazilian and African drumming styles, Boogie Patrol's distinctive style slowly evolved and now entices even the most hesitant dancer onto the floor. These five virtuosos of their craft unite to create a sound, an emotion, a chemistry that is incomparable, and with their mind-bending solos and tight grooves, Boogie Patrol prides itself on the ability to connect with audiences from all walks of life. Boogie Patrol have played hundreds of shows since their inception, having headlined at North Country Fair, Pembina River Nights, Beaumont Blues Festival (Alberta, Canada; 2009 & 2010), Sasquatch Gathering (Alberta, Canada; 2010) and Wild Oats & Notes (Alberta, Canada; 2010, 2012). In 2011, Boogie Patrol had the honour of opening for both The Fabulous Thunderbirds as well as Blues legend Buddy Guy, both in Calgary and Edmonton (Alberta). 2012 is proving to be an exciting year for the band thus far: after playing the Saskatoon Blues Fest in February, their second album "I Try & I Try But I Don't Know What to Do, the Plan Was Set Some Time Ago & We Must Follow Through" (Independent Release, August 2011) took home "Blues Album of the Year" from the Edmonton Music Awards 2012, in April. August marked a milestone for Boogie Patrol, having been invited to play the 20th Annual Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival, the largest and most diverse festival in the Interior of British Columbia (Canada), receiving standing ovations at both their performances on the CBC Blues Stage. Early October, Boogie Patrol won the Memphis Bound Blues Competition, sponsored by the Edmonton Blues Society, which will send the band to Memphis in January of 2013 to represent Edmonton and Western Canada at the 29th Annual International Blues Challenge. Most recently, the band has been nominated for a Maple Blues Award, Canada's national blues awards program for 16 years running, in the category of "New Artist or Group of the Year.
