Halifax-based singer-songwriter Gabrielle Papillon is one of Canada's best kept secrets. Though rooted in folk strumming and gentle vocal phrasings, her sixth album, Keep the Fire, sees Papillon embracing her pop leanings. Songs pulse with strings, synths, and evocative percussion resulting in an exceptionally well-crafted album of emotional storytelling.
Halifax’s queen of salt water soul returns! Armed with her husky baritone and endless poise, ECMA winner Erin Costello channels the grand tradition of southern US vocal jazz and R&B, embodying the spirit of legends like Nina Simone and Donny Hathaway. Her latest album “Down Below, The Status Quo” was recorded with east coast stalwart Joel Plaskett, and has received glowing praise nationally.

Jazz, blues and classic 50’s rock n’ roll all find a home in the hands of this modern master !
He was also ADISQ’s 2010 Felix-award winner for Album of the Year.
