LYZANNE FOTH has been writing songs ever since she picked up the guitar in her early teens. She released two albums as a high school student and is currently recording with childhood friend, Close Talker’s Will Quiring. Lyzanne’s songs are catchy with a jazzy feel, with lyrics that are vague enough to relate to and personal enough to give you a glimpse inside of her world. Her sound has been influenced through her repetitive listening of Feist, Amy Winehouse, St. Vincent, Emma Louise, and Charlotte Day Wilson.
JAECY BELLS, born and raised in small-town Saskatchewan, is an artist and songwriter who takes the old and makes it new. Drawing inspiration from classic poets and women of jazz all the way to Billy Joel and Amy Winehouse, Jaecy weaves elegant lyrics and fills them out with jazzy piano and a voice full of soul. As a multi-instrumentalist using live looping, her eclectic influences blend together seamlessly in a performance you won't soon forget. She released her self-titled EP in May 2018 ; it has sounds of jazz and blues, her exceptional vocals really root the genre in soul.
ÉEMI is a bilingual singer-songwriter, recently garnering attention as a finalist on the nationally televised francophone singer-songwriter competition, Planète BRBR. She also appeared on Balade, a nationally televised musician showcase. Though her songs seem fragile and vulnerable, she is anything but. She sounds like a warm whiskey shot chased with honey; her poetry is distilled and her melodies are captivating. She just completed an Eastern tour in Ontario and Québec this summer and is currently working on her francophone album "Métamorphose", which will be released in April 2020.
JOELLE FULLER is an artist finally comfortable in her own skin. Her forthcoming new album, Travelling Witness (April 2019), is a genre-fusing offering that combines powerful lyrics, groovy melodies and chronicles the journey of her re-birth as an artist witnessing major global social change and coming to terms with the change in her family after the recent death of her father. Joelle is a strong believer in the power of words and seeks to empower and encourage others to live their truth through the stories she tells in her music. Joelle has amassed over 100 performances in Western Canada, including performances at the Regina Folk Festival, Cathedral Village Arts Festival, and the Forget Summer Music Festival to audiences of all ages.
HUMMINGBIRD CROSSING plays traditional & modern bluegrass & acoustic folk music. Helen Chang, Jennifer Petriew, Tim Mrazek & Vance Petriew are all singers and multi-instrumentalists, with Helen, Jenn and Tim prolific songwriters. Their forthcoming CD, Charm, is slated for release in spring. Hummingbird Crossing performs on acoustic instruments including include guitars, banjos, double bass, mandolins, dobro and fiddle.
