JAKALOPE - was first spawned in the creative mind of world-renowned producer and mixer, Dave "Rave" Ogilvie (Nine Inch Nails, David Bowie, Skinny Puppy, Marilyn Manson). His conceptual aim was towards a new musical hybrid rooted in industrial music but flowing smoothly between searing rock and melodic pop. With new singer Chrsytal Leigh on board (Perfect Strangers, Closing Iris), their latest CD "Delicious" has graduated from the sheet-metal bubblegum blueprint of their first two albums into something slinkier and more substantial. Previously repressed influences like Giorgio Moroder and Michael Jackson have surfaced, leading naturally to a lush, multi-dimensional sound with a neon-lit, smoke-infused feel. With past and present collaborators including Trent Reznor and members of Rush, Sloan, Ministry, Monster Magnet, Sons Of Freedom and Babes In Toyland, their music has been featured by Instant Star and as the intro theme for Degrassi: The Next Generation while their cover art won a 2005 Juno Award. http://www.myspace.com/jakalope
NIM VIND creates a distinctive, original sound that will impact your brain at high speed and leave a lasting impression. Beginning in the realm of cabaret and horrorpunk, his sound has taken off into an explosive melting pot of modern guitar rock that doesn‘t hesitate to delve into the golden '50s and psychedelic '60s. Remarkable vocals, catchy melodies, intelligent arrangements and the right amount of speed keep his songs rocking with perfection and a refreshing punk attitude. Dress up in black, turn it up loud and sing along. It's the one and only NIM VIND.
JOSEPH BLOOD & The BLUETICK HOUN'DOGS - Joseph Blood's career as an acclaimed Vancouver-based guitar player has seen him playing stages in seven different countries and sharing bills with acts ranging from Spirit of the West to 2 Live Crew. Hitting all the best parts of modern Americana, his songs are a blend of dark country, celtic punk and chamber pop. His self described 'acid-country' has been winning him fans across North America and Europe as people latch on to his urgent, captivating melodies and songs about living on the road, love lost and found, and all the booze and heartache that fills up the cracks of life. http://www.josephblood.com
