Daneil Moir

Daniel Moir is a Canadian singer/songwriter/producer who resides in Vancouver, and has currently released three solo albums. Daniel has played at numerous festivals and conferences, and has toured extensively in both Canada and the United States. Daniel has toured with artists like (Grapes of Wrath vocalist/guitarist) Kevin Kane, and performed with artists locally like Kathleen Edwards, Timber Timbre and Miracle Fortress. His songs have seen chart positions on college radio and placements with NBC, with his song "Change the World" (2008 release "the Country and the Sea") appearing in the season finale of the hit American TV series "Mercy".

His latest release, "Monday Morning", featured Daniel taking on the role of producer and engineer, as well as playing most of the parts himself. In an attempt to increase dialogue about environmental issues, Daniel is donating one dollar out of each album sold to Canadian environmental group Ecojustice. The album was well received and has garnered much attention from press and blogs like Exclaim!

Daniel's sophomore release, Road, has been compared to Eddie Vedder, Rufus Wainwright and even The Beatles. An alternative folk trip that takes the listener on a quasi-cinematic journey through the great Canadian landscape (Discorder Magazine), Road was produced by Juno-winning producer Russell Broom (Jan Arden, Sam Roberts), and was co-engineered by David Kean (Bjork, Audities Foundation).

Braden Gates

Braden Gates writes songs and sings them, plays fiddle, and tells stories. A born raconteur in both his songwriting and song introductions, he is often compared to a young Loudon Wainwright: for his similar grimacing as he hits the notes and the sharpness of his observation and sly humour. With intricate guitar picking and skillful fiddling, he weaves his way through song in a way unlike any other. He is set to release his second album, Ferris Wheel, in September 2014.

A recent graduate of the jazz program at Grant Macewan, Jordan has been fronting the band Billie zizi and the Gypsy Jive as well as persuing a solo career.
