JUSTINE SLETTEN: Determination, talent, and drive define youth singer/songwriter Justine Sletten. Her debut EP, “Groundbreaking,” was released July 2017 and spent three days in the Top 10 Country Albums in Canada on iTunes, reaching # 3. Justine is currently planning follow-up singles which she hopes to release in July 2019. She’s been named the winner of the Saskatoon Country Music Association’s youth Star Search, the Medicine Hat stampede Summer Star, winner of the Deja Vu songwriters competition, and the 2018 Living Skies Teen Vocalist of the Year. She was also runner-up in the Global Country Canada Star Search, earning her a trip to Nashville where she will take part in three days of songwriting with industry professionals and participate in an international competition. She is hopeful that her hard work and determination will help her to share her music around the world.
AMANDA HAGEL: Since the release of her debut album Rush in 2014, Amanda has established herself as a country artist on a mission to create meaningful and inspiring music. And she’s been busy – 6 songs released to radio, 13 official music videos, and a national finalist spot in the CBC Music’s Searchlight contest 2015. She’s a Saskatchewan Country Music Awards winner, with multiple nominations. Her most recent project was the “Collection of Covers Vol. 1” album release and concert series in the fall of 2018. With three albums released and plans to begin recording her next full length album of original music in 2019, she also stays busy performing with two well-known cover bands in the Saskatoon area.
JEZEBEL: Bittersweet lyrics, haunting vocal harmonies and aggressive rhythmic melodies define Saskatoon’s original diversity divas: the Bridge City’s own all-female punk rock band. Forged through years of progressive live performance and intensifying creative fire, Jezebel’s musical mission of all-inclusive empowerment and uniquely expressive individualism fuels their sonic passion, blazing brilliant and uniting words waxing authentic. Jezebel’s first EP "Forget Me Not" was released spring 2018, followed by a busy summer performing across Saskatchewan including Taste of Saskatchewan, Girls Rock Camp, Black Cat Tavern, 5 Acre Shaker and Doyle Fest.
ELIZA MARY DOYLE TRIO: Sweet as honey and raw as hide.
Over the past 16 years, Eliza has recorded and released 10 full length albums, and toured Canada, the US, Europe and the UK extensively. This feisty international and award-winning artist has a unique way of captivating audiences around the world with her charismatic performances, stylistic clawhammer banjo playing and sophisticated songwriting. Since playing with The Dead South for the previous 2 years (garnishing her a JUNO in 2018), her musicianship has skyrocketed. She is a versatile player, a seasoned performer, teacher, and session musician who brings an authenticity and energy to her music through her unstoppable and ferocious spirit. Joining her on stage this evening, blending beautiful 3 part harmonies, will be Paula McGuigan on upright bass and Liza Holder on guitar. Be it large concert halls, a small coffee house gatherings, or a garage jams, Eliza's love for music, family and friends is always present.
