Dana Wylie is a singer of rare gift and a dedicated crafter of deeply felt and sharply observed songs. Praised for being as dexterous with words as she is with her guitar, piano and remarkably powerful voice, she writes with equal parts craft and passion; as Roger Levesque of the Edmonton Journal put it, "Wylie shows the intuitive grace, smart, lyrical economy, and the ability to find insights in everything or anything that you expect of a mature songwriter.”
Jordan Hart & Emily Schultz
Jordan Hart and Emily Schultz are two artists from Edmonton, Alberta who have created a musical journey to be remembered. Combining powerful vocals, guitar, percussion and piano, their intimate sound is driven forward by strong alternative and soul influences, all rooted in an acoustic singer-songwriter style. Their music speaks honestly of the human experience and their onstage energy is truly contagious. Since moving to Toronto, Jordan and Emily have built a following from the ground up, selling out back-to-back renowned Toronto venues within months of each other (Junction City Music Hall, Burdock Music Hall, Rivoli, Supermarket, respectively), primarily based on their original content. They are currently exploring music careers both together and separately, which is evident in their live shows; Schultz is getting ready to hit the studio while Jordan is gearing up to release his debut album, 'Far Too Many Thoughts,' which will be available this summer.
John Wort Hannam
Recent years have seen a great deal of change in John’s life - becoming a Dad, turning 50, a move to the “big city” of Lethbridge, a long, deep bout of depression, and episodes of losing his singing voice. But John has emerged a better songwriter, a better singer, and a better player. On Acres Of Elbow Room, John has further refined his lyrical style and has landed squarely on his niche in the folk-roots world. He’s spent years learning the craft of songwriting and is taking those tools to write some of his most personal songs. He has, quite literally, found his voice.
