  1. Play

    Cédrik St-Onge

    Fourth Stage

    Cédrik St-Onge doesn't look his age. His voice evokes a mature and strange world. He composes in isolation in his native Gaspé. He gives us the summer sounds of a brilliant sun shining over the ocean and of the first snowfall blown in from the sea.

  2. Play Sold Out

    A port city is a place where cultures and histories collide, where goods and ideas are imported and absorbed into the local bloodstream. The trio of celebrated Nova Scotian songwriters who now call themselves Port Cities honour that tradition. Their chosen name isn’t just indicative of where they’re from (the harbour hamlet of Cape Breton) but what they do: fuse divergent styles and experiences into a singular roots-rock sound.

  3. Trails

    with LUKA and Keturah Johnson

    Fourth Stage

    Trails is Allie O'Manique, a young, prolific songwriter from Ottawa, Canada who weaves reverb-laden guitars through layers of smoky alto vocals. Trails has enchanted Canadian audiences at festivals such as MEGAPHONO and Arboretum Festival, and supported artists such as Tim Hecker, The Wooden Sky, Jeremy Gara (Arcade Fire) and The Acorn.

  4. Play

    Kelly Sloan is an award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter with pure and clean vocals, which compliment her personal and earnest songwriting. Her musical influences range from folk to country, while fusing elements of vintage '50s and '60s pop rock. Kelly’s unique delivery brings her sound to life with a continuity of vibration, offering a singular statement of heartfelt expression and honesty.

  5. Play

    Stewart Legere

    with Megan Nash

    Fourth Stage

    From Halifax, Nova Scotia. Stewart Legere's folk-pop songs are lovingly composed with vivid storytelling and luscious harmonies, darkened with such sincere delivery and frank lyrics you'll long to sing along and make it alright.

  6. Play

    Emma Cook

    Fourth Stage

    Toronto's Emma Cook is blessed with one of those glacially pure voices that cuts through the fog of our everyday tribulations. Her unassuming outer shell belies a songwriter of unwavering strength, sincerity, and determination.

  7. Play

    Born and raised in Manitoba, but steeped in BC, Noah Derksen's songwriting mixes the fortitude of Prairie winters with west coast optimism. On the same bill see Ottawa's rising star Brea Lawrenson. Catapulted not only by her whip-smart songwriting and anthemic choruses, Lawrenson's got the pipes to back it all up.

  8. Play


    Fourth Stage

    The sound of Bellflower, led by singer-songwriter Em Pompa, is one that is rare, rich and powerful. Driven by the soul and ingenuity of eight musicians, it conveys a sense of soft vastness that absorbs the listener, of quiet strength born of an enduring union.

  9. Play

    The Young Novelists craft contemporary folk songs with a roots-rock bite and close harmonies reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel or The Civil Wars. Their last album "made us strangers" earned them a number of accolades including a Canadian Folk Music Award for New/Emerging Artist and the Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award.
