Jonathan Becker and the North Fields
Jonathan Becker and the North Fields
Jonathan Becker has been performing and touring as a singer-songwriter since 2009 and under other monikers since 2005. Working with The North Fields has allowed a significant collaboration in his roots as a musician to fuse post-punk with his history of alt-folk.

"With songs rooted in a working class ethos and a social conscience, Becker's lyrics paint pictures of everyday struggles, heartache and dusty landscapes. It's gruff music for the wee hours inspired by the lik es of Tom Waits and Joe Strummer." - CBC

"The North Fields are very much a “what you see is what you get” band, a group of peers making music that matters and that resonates with audiences. Insofar as stripped-down, unhindered music goes, no one in Ottawa does it quite like Becker. " - Ottawa Showbox
Winchester Warm
Winchester Warm
Winchester Warm play sometimes tender, sometimes raucous indie-folk, flush with soaring vocal harmonies, offbeat percussive threads and shimmering guitar flourishes. What began as a powerful duo consisting of Jonathan Pearce and Matthew Godin has since grown in membership and also in sound, at times echoing the somber folk stylings of M. Ward and at others, the jaunty vocal-driven indie-pop of Pinback.

Pearce and Godin released their debut album, “Sky One Room,” in late 2010. The album garnered very positive reviews from numerous publications such as the Montreal Mirror, the Ottawa Citizen and Toronto’s Now Magazine. The duo toured extensively in support of their debut album, embarking on a quintessentially Canadian two-week tour of the country’s east coast in bone chilling January 2011.

In late 2012 guitarist Matthew Corbiere joined the group full-time, and with the addition of bassist Michael Zorn their sound edged ever closer to the jangly-pop of Pearce and Godin’s critically-acclaimed former band Poorfolk.

The group recorded the new record (“Belle Attente”) throughout 2013 in various locales in Ottawa with local sonic prince Jarrett Bartlett. (The Acorn, Andrew Vincent, The Flaps)

The songs on “Belle Attente” range from the upbeat, off-kilter pop of the title track to the moody, slow burning folk of “like hell,” which culminates in a triumphant barroom chant. Like the band’s first album, the songs are at times heavy and melancholic while at other times, poignant and anthemic.
Sarah Scriver
Sarah Scriver
At 16 years old, Ottawa native Sarah Scriver is turning heads and winning over hearts of all ages. Her sophomore EP "Mind over Matter" demonstrates not only Sarah's wide vocal range, guitar and piano playing skills, but also her incredibly mature song writing abilities.

As a survivor of concussions, amnesia, depression and a seizure disorder all endured from extreme bullying, Sarah has become a beacon of hope and an advocate for not only troubled teens, but anyone who has been through these extreme hardships. "The human body goes through 5 stages of grief after a trauma: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and hope. Mind Over Matter is a mantra I've lived by since I was a little girl" explains Scriver. "From the denial in Hushed, the anger in Flare, the bargaining in The Story Of Us, the depression in Karma's Gonna Get You, to the hope in House Of Cards" this EP is for anyone going through this cycle".
