The Elwins
The Elwins
Ontario-based indie pop outfit The Elwins have garnered an impressive pile of attention and praise considering their relative youth. From performing alongside acts like Tokyo Police Club, Arkells, Born Ruffians, Brendan Canning and Walk Off The Earth or at festivals including SXSW, CMW, POP Montreal, and the Halifax Pop Explosion to being heralded an "act to watch" by tastemakers like Exclaim!, CBC Radio 3, and Torontoist.com, The Elwins have rapidly risen the rungs of
the Canadian independent music scene – and all without a full-length offering to their name; however, that's set to change with the release of their highly-anticipated long- player And I Thank You.
Mosely
Mosely
Mosely is an Indie/Alt-Rock band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Dani Vézina (Lead Vocalist / fka: Dani Poisson) met her husband Mat Vézina (Bassist/Backup Vocals) back in 2003 at a church youth group. In the summer of 2004 the two started dating. Mat was a bassist in a metal band at the time with Dani's younger brother, Mike Poisson (Drummer/Vocalist). In 2005 after going to a concert with Mat, Dani confessed to Mat that she would love nothing more than to be the vocalist in their band. Mat and Mike agreed and the three of them along with a mutual friend began jamming. These were the early stages of what would eventually become their first real band, "Not Even Death" (2008-2012). After the departure of their long-time guitarist, Justin deBoer¹, the group soon realized that much of their style had hinged on Justin's wonderfully raucous musical taste, and they were being drawn toward a more alternative sound. Dani, Mat and Mike decided it was time for something new and after finding a replacement guitarist, they formed "Mosely"². In 2013 they toured through schools across Canada with the organization, "Live Different" and in those 80 dates the band learned a lot of hard lessons. With the time on the road now under their belts, they underwent yet another lineup change, and in early 2014, Eric Hitsman (Guitarist/Vocalist | formerly of, We Surrender) joined the band as the group's permanent guitarist, adding his strong male vocals to the mix. In 2014 they released their first single written with Eric entitled, "Friends" which was recorded in Ottawa by Steve Foley at Audio Valley Recording Studios. The band loved working with Steve so much that they returned to the studio to record their first self-titled EP which they all felt best represented Mosely's true sound. They released their EP on June 12th 2015 and less than one month later, Dani & Mat were married! They are currently writing for their next release while they play shows around Ontario and Quebec.
Heyrocco
Heyrocco
The stars were aligned when childhood friends Taco, Chris Cool, and Nate 2000 first plugged in their parent's garage five years ago via Charleston, South Carolina. Ever since, the band has been touring and bumming around perfecting their self-proclaimed genre 'Disney Grunge'. Several years in the making, their debut record 'Teenage Movie Soundtrack' is due out early 2015 via Vital Music Group (UK) / Old Flame Records (US).
