Known for their soulful three-part harmonies, West Coast Music Award winners Sweet Alibi have shared their folk roots-pop infused music with listeners across North America and Europe since 2009. They are the distinct and complementary voices of Jess Rae Ayre, Amber Nielsen and Michelle Anderson, joined by Alasdair Dunlop on bass and Sandy Fernandez on drums. Their music has garnered national accolades and awards, has been featured on MTV Canada and CMT and has received major radio play on college/community and satellite radio, with several songs in the top 20 of CBC radio’s national charts.
“Sweet Alibi’s expert harmonies and timeless soul continue to draw eyes and ears to ‘the music heart of the continent’ – Winnipeg, Manitoba.” – Beatroute magazine
Like all great singer/songwriters, Mike Plume’s music bears a distinctive stamp. It could be his richly detailed storytelling style, or his unyielding devotion to rock and roll’s original spirit. Or it could just be how his earthy, uncompromising style —often tempered with a sly sense of humour— is impossible to separate from his art.
Touring with acts like Blue Rodeo gave Mike great exposure but his twelve albums to date testify to his vision. Mike is the real deal, a performer’s performer and one of this country’s best song-writers.
“Yup, Mike Plume continues to deliver the musical goods.” Les Siemieniuk
Diyet & The Love Soldiers
Born in a tent, raised in a cabin on the shores of a glacial lake in the Kluane region of Canada’s Yukon Territory, Diyet embodies her Southern Tutchone, Japanese, Tlingit and Scottish roots with a musical presence that is equally diverse and unique.
Diyet is Alternative Folk, Roots, Country and Traditional Aboriginal with melodies and stories deeply rooted in her Indigenous world view and northern life. Her songs are an interpretation of a northern reality: hard, raw and will break you if it can but at the same time, always beautiful, gentle, strange and intensely alive. She performs as a trio, Diyet & the Love Soldiers, with husband and collaborator, Robert van Lieshout on guitar and foot percussion and multi- instrumentalist, Bob Hamilton. Continuing to live with feet firmly planted in two worlds, Diyet’s adventurous and sometimes chaotic life is on full display in her music.
Diyet often says, “yesterday, fishing for our dinner on the ice, the next day, on the stage singing for you!”
Semple writes and performs “Modern Blues” and folk without forgetting where he came from. He is an epic guitarist and a soulful singer. His music is like Stevie Ray Vaughn meets James Brown meets Robben Ford.
Semple has been twice nominated for a Gemini Award and has won a Juno award and two Western Canadian music awards.
He continues to perform as a solo artist and with The Jack Semple Band, across Canada; and now being championed across America!
“Semple played with the fire and abandon that he is known for…” (from the Vault)
Emily Triggs is a bred-in-the-bones roots musician. In her debut album When Guinevere Went Under, the guitarist, singer-songwriter takes you on a journey through influences and experiences that have shaped her folk/roots sound.
As a songwriter, her philosophy is simple: all of life’s experiences, for better or worse, can be mined for the raw materials of a good song – hence her mantra of “no regrets”. She is an observer of the world around us.
Emily shares stories through her songs with an endearing simplicity and emotional depth. With a pure and true vocal, complementing a solid base of undeniably roots music composition, Emily engages the listener. She has been singing festivals, clubs and coffee houses for years and is now known as an established singer songwriter.
“(Emily) is an artist sitting comfortably between the borders of rock, country, and folk.” Gillian Turnbull
After 20 years together, Juno nominated singer-songwriting duo, Madison Violet, are as much wanderers as they are musicians. It is a career filled with endless roads stretching into the horizon, winding through changing landscapes, each kilometer traveled carrying with it the promise of inspiration. Perhaps that is the secret of what has made Madison Violet such an enduring band. Because with each new town, each new venue, their curiosity grows, their love of music deepens, their desire to push musical boundaries expands.
In 2019, Madison Violet released their latest album “Everything’s Shifting”. The album is a heartfelt examination of how memory can splinter a heart, how loss shapes perspective and how sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you can’t have love without regret. It is an album to be listened to on the open road, with the windows rolled down: a love letter to their fans, from two wanderers who continue to follow the melodies wherever they lead.
