The James Downham Band is a 5-piece country rock outfit out of Kitchener, Canada, featuring exceptional harmonies, great hooks, and memorable lyrics. Downham was the winner of The Shot Season 2, Canada’s biggest and fastest growing vocal talent competition. Downham’s first radio single, “Don’t Talk To Girls”, garnered attention on US radio.
Downham has performed for over a decade at major festivals and events across Ontario and the Eastern USA. Downham released two independent studio albums with his former indie rock band, Reson. As a songwriter, James has contributed over 25 songs to other artist’s recordings.
The Rifle & The Writer
The Rifle & The Writer are a Canadian Country music duo comprised of siblings Rebekka Paige and Colby Latocha, formed in 2015. Upon the release of their single “Gig & Colour” to Country radio, CBC Canada/Sirius XM declared them an emerging artist granting them coast to coast rotation across the country. Their debut album Flowers of Chance was released on March 20, 2017.
Emerging out of the growing Ontario Indie scene, Trading Alaska is an Indietronica Duo formed in London, Ontario, combining cutting guitar leads, soaring vocals, dreamy synths, and groovy, synthpop inspired bass lines. Touring across Ontario in support of their recently released EP, We Miss You!, Trading Alaska has struck a chord with fans of both Electronic and Alternative music alike.
Beyond Spain is Alex Harea of Harea Band’s second project where he takes a more intimate approach to songwriting, telling his stories of love and loss through the lens of a young traveller making his way across Europe by foot. These songs take the audience on a roller coaster ride of emotions, weaving thoughtful lyrics with beautiful melodies and atmospheric guitar playing which has been compared to the likes of Iron and Wine.
Town House are a 4 piece ambient post-rock band from St. John’s NL. They released their debut album titled “Floods” in February 2017. They had the pleasure of opening for Jaunt at this years Lawnya Vawyna Music Festival.
Robb Torres, front-man of Robbery Inc, has always been about testing his diverse limits. The accomplished guitarist, and former member of the alt-rock band TRAPT, draws from his varied sonic roots while continually evolving as he moves to the front of the stage. Torres was ready for something that would test his limits not only as a songwriter and guitarist, but also a lyricist and singer.
Lending lead guitar and vocals for the first time in his new project, Robbery, Inc., Torres is excited to let his brand of blues infused rock speak for itself on the group’s debut release: The Crave EP. Torres, along with Jonah Wei-Haas on the keys and Matt Camgros on drums, deliver a straightforward rock punch that brings out a certain head-nodding, air-guitaring response elicited by only the best in music that connects to the listener.
Rock is alive and well, and Robbery Inc is solid proof.
