Jessica Pearson and the East Wind
Jessica Pearson is a Canadian born storyteller with a voice like melting honey on a summers eve. Accompanied by the melodic bowing of Pat Bigelow on the Stand Up Bass and the sweet fiddling of Maddy O’Regan, they bring to life tales of the past and express the beauty and heartbreak of the world today. Fresh off their second international tour of Ireland, Jessica Pearson and the East Wind are working hard on a new album to be released in 2019.
Their debut EP 'Grave and Garden Songs' released in 2017 perfectly blends folk, roots and East Coast bluegrass. From a cappella tunes sung in the middle of the audience to recollections of growing up in Canada, Jessica Pearson and the East Wind will take you on a journey with their dynamic live shows and entertaining story telling.
Lunar Bloom is an all female vocal folk trio comprised of Kelly McNamee, Jocelyn Regina and Brittany Rae Robinson. Their songs are written collaboratively, with each voice weaving seamlessly in and out of harmony.
The three “Blooms” met nearly ten years ago at Sheridan College whilst studying in the prestigious Music-Theatre Program. While at school they collaborated on one another's songs, and began officially writing as a trio in the past year. Each a songwriter in their own respect, they bring different skills and perspective to every piece, creating something entirely new. Pulling inspiration from other female artists their sound has the quirkiness of Regina Spektor, the sweet innocence of Dala and the witchy appeal of Florence and the Machine. Their songs have dynamic range, often times with sparse acoustic accompaniment, to give focus to the intricate three part harmonies that blend deliciously and leave you wanting more.
Born and raised in the heart of the Ottawa Valley, music has been a constant in Bailey’s life. Growing up in a loving and musically gifted family, she is no stranger to country music, or the stage. She has been performing from the time she could walk, and her love of all different genres means her song repertoire is deep and varied. She performs songs that touch her heart, are full of harmony, and connect with the audience. With a recognizable last name, she takes on shows of her own, writing original music and recently releasing her first EP, she’s paving her own path in the music industry. With a preference to intimate venues, natural harmonies and modest musicians, Bailey’s passion and talent shines through in her beautiful and raw performances. Bailey’s passion for music is only matched by her love of animals. Working with dogs seven days a week, she is most happy when surrounded by and helping, animals. And after a long day, she comes home to be greeted by three pooches of her own.
