Corwin Fox is a Canadian songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who has been hailed as “a shining light in Canadian roots music” by Doug Cox (artistic director, Vancouver Island Music Festival). Having toured extensively across Canada, the U.S. and Australia since 1995, Corwin has been spending an increasing amount of time recording and producing other artists across a wide range of genres. He still plays concerts and festivals performing his songs on banjo, guitar and ukulele, and he teaches songwriting to youth each summer, but the studio has really become his focus since he founded the Corwin Fox Academy of Perpetual Excellence. Over the years he has played venues large and small, some by himself and some with his other projects such as Morlove or The Chimney Swallows.
Naomi Shore is a folk/roots artist from Northern BC, a lover of storytelling and sad songs. Her songwriting is honest, vulnerable and relatable. Her debut solo album ‘Piece by Piece’ will be released in early 2019.
With her duo project, Twin Peaks, Naomi has had the good fortune of touring most of Canada as well as the East Coast of Australia. In 2015 Twin Peaks were awarded the Western Canadian Music Award for Roots Duo/ Group Recording of the Year for their album Trouble.
Kitty & The Rooster is a rock n’ roll duo from Vancouver, BC featuring Jodie Ponto on the stand-up cocktail drumkit and Noah Walker on electric guitar. They are known for their surf-tastic hooks, clever lyrics, and ridiculously fun shows.
Kitty & The Rooster’s debut album One Gig Hard Drive is a funny-because-it's-true romp across the Canadian backroads. The 11-track album documents the hilarious, and at times absurd, life of the un-famous travelling musician. With clever word play, laugh out loud scenarios and some “did they really just go there?” moments, Kitty & The Rooster tell-all with the kind of honesty usually only found within the four walls of a tour van.
For a duo, Kitty & The Rooster make quite a lot of noise. One Gig Hard Drive invites you to get up and shake it with an old-fashioned surf stomp. The album is fortified with vintage guitar sounds, slapback vocals, dirty drums, and Kitty & The Rooster’s trusty backup singers The Cockettes.
