Ciseaux is the most recent endeavor of Victoria, BC artist, Katie Schaan. Melodies swam around her head and danced out her rosebud lips before she was old enough to even know words to speak. That tiny girl lived three years of life before hitting the stage with a tiny cello, and there was no stopping her from music making after that. Ciseaux is inspired by everything from Bach’s Brandenburg concertos, to soulful melodies of the 60’s, to the imaginative indie persuasions of her peers. This is a project evolved from classical training, a love of pop music and an unwillingness to be limited by genre. Ciseaux's debut EP, produced by the illustrious Aidan Knight, will melt your heart and make you want to dance all at the same time.

Ciseaux’s Katie Schaan has graced stages and studios while lending her vocal and cello stylings to other emerging BC artists including Aidan Knight, Vince Vaccaro, and Steph Macpherson. As an operatically trained vocalist, she has also been a soloist with the Victoria Symphony. Her first album “Close To Me”, which was released under her own name, earned five nominations at the 2011 Vancouver Island Music Awards (Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year) and won Album of the Year.

After toiling in the trenches of the Vancouver music scene for the past decade, Dominique Fricot is finally starting to hit his stride. With his commanding stage presence, unrivaled songwriting skill and ear for creating pure pop masterpieces, Dominique owns the stage with his rich baritone and his emotive fusion of rock, soul, folk and jazz. Don’t believe me? John Lucas of the Georgia Straight says: “Fricot’s plaintive vocals and knack for melody invite comparisons to Chris Martin and Adam Duritz”. Legendary local producer Jeff Dawson has called him ‘the new Neil Diamond’. Whatever you call him, the comparisons don’t do Dom justice. He’s a true original, a one of a kind talent, and a rapidly rising star. Don’t miss his unique blend of charm, stage domination, and relatable, heartfelt music.
