Ruby Jean and the Thoughtful Bees

Electro / Indie / Metal

L'assortiment improbable de musiciens, provenant de Halifax, qu'est Ruby Jean & The Thoughtful Bees se compose de Colin Crowell aux synthétiseurs et à la production des sons, de Rebekah Higgs qui devient Ruby Jean (son audacieux alter ego) et qui échantillone sa propre voix sur scène, de Jason Vautour qui détient un sublime jeu de guitare et de Sean MacGillivray qui joue de la batterie en donnant une touche organique aux rythmes.

Sean Nicholas Savage

Traditional / Vocal

L’écriture de Sean est à son meilleur, avec un charisme étrange, il ajoute une texture aux relations qui l’entoure. Avec son esprit très créatif, Sean Nicholas Savage, a écrit la musique toute sa vie. Maintenant dans sa vingtaine, il compose et produit de 2 à 3 albums par année. En plus de posséder une magnifique voix, il est un de ces artiste passionné, qui travail aussi sur que  derrière la scène.

"La première écoute nous plonge invariablement dans les comparaisons avec les Dylan, Cohen et autres chansonniers de la même époque. Alors que certains y verront un pastiche, j'y vois, moi, l'intemporalité d'un genre musical qui perdure grâce à des interprètes authentiques comme Savage...." - Élodie Gagnon

Following the damaged R&B of this year’s Trippple Midnight Karma, Sean Nicholas Savage has wasted no time moving into new territory with his side of Won Ton Jaz. Savage deftly manoeuvres several musical landscapes: blue-eyed reggae (“True Love”), spacey ‘70s psych (“UFO”), anthemic ‘80s AOR (“Wasted Dream”, “Peace Man”) and even Caribbean-tinged synth pop (“Whisperin”, “Sony My Only”). All under gauzy production that complements his trademark high vocal register, Won Ton Jaz stands as a logical progression in the ever-developing oeuvre of Sean Nicholas Savage.

Electro / Indie / Pop

The story of electro-pop duo Hexes & Ohs begins with a pair of high school sweethearts and spans years of couple-hood and musical projects. 2005 saw the release of their debut album “Goodbye Friend, Welcome Lover”, which reached the 2nd position on the Canadian campus radio charts, remaining in the top 10 for several months. CBC Radio 3 named “Whadaya Know?” one of their top 50 singles of the year.

Three years have passed and the album they created has taken them to places they never expected. Hexes have played CMJ, Pop Montreal, CMW, NXNE, Halifax Pop Explosion, Osheaga and have opened for Mates of State, Sloan, Kid Koala, Au Revoir Simone, Tokyo Police Club, Most Serene Republic and We Are Wolves. Their sophomore 2008 release “Bedroom Madness”, produced by Byron Wong (the Crystal Method, David Usher), has been bringing them new levels of success. The band successfully toured across Canada, quickly topping national campus radio charts and garnering rave reviews from press and media. The infectious video for first single “H-H-Highschool” is currently in rotation at MuchMusic and MTV Canada.

Electro / Pop

Jenocide is an indie-electro act which plays upbeat dance music. With her shredding synths, powerful beats and roaring but sweet vocals, Jenocide is not your average east coast girl with keytar…what? Jenocide works her way into the audience for an interactive concert experience to push and shove the crowd into a spontaneous party atmosphere.
