From the Promoter

BEN HOOKE

Ben Hooke is a singer/songwriter from Edmonton, Alberta. He explores a vintage sound of rock inspired folk music. He started at the age of twelve with a dream of playing the lead guitar in a rock band, slowly developed new taste in music, especially folk. As time went on began to dabble in singing and eventually found himself to be a solo act.
Ben is looking to build his career and play both the biggest stages and the dustiest bars.

With the release of his first live album and a studio album on the way, Ben is preparing to ramp up his music and performing before he leaves the prairies for the bustling streets of Toronto.

ERIC BRENT WEST

Indie Folk-Pop artist based out of Edmonton Alberta
