Lucette has firmly established herself in both the Edmonton and international music scene. Although still emerging, the waves she has made within the Country/Americana world are evident in the opportunities that have graced her path. 2014 saw an extremely successful independent release, showcasing at Nashville’s Americana Fest, and ending the year with a support slot on Grammy Award Winner Sturgill Simpson's tour. Since then she has gone on to tour over 70 cities and 40 states, 3 provinces in Canada, and played esteemed festivals all over North America. Although only 25 years of age, it is undeniable that Lucette has a surprisingly old soul, which brings audiences of all ages together for her dynamic stage show. Her commitment to creating soulful, raw, and relatable music has brought her to tours with Texas legends like Joe Ely and Alejandro Escovedo, new wave artists such as Mason Jennings and David Ramirez, and brings audiences to an intimate and heartfelt experience every time she plays. Her unwavering voice and mature songwriting is truly evidence that Lucette is one to watch. Her debut release “Black is the Color” currently has over 5 million spotify streams, with her single “Bobby Reid” at over 3 million on it’s own. Most recently she opened for Netflix documentary star Rodriguez in Calgary and Vancouver, notably playing to a sold out crowd at Vancouver’s legendary Orpheum theatre. She plans to release her sophomore album in 2018, creating a richer, more soulful sound.
Post Script distills optimistic melancholia by exploring their entwined histories. The striking effervescence of Steph Blais in harmonic unity with Paul Cournoyer's rich baritone creates a conduit for the voices of their franco-albertan roots to resound with the reflection of modern humanity. The guitar pendulum swings from Nashville pulse to crystalline delicacy, weaving the soothing tone of Paul's stand up bass with enigmatic familiarity. Like a lustrous new dress stitched from vintage cloth Post Script is a gasp of nostalgia in a breath of fresh air.
An emerging live performer, with opening slots for k.d. lang and Hayes Carll, and an impressive list of Canadian Festival appearances to her credit, Buckley deftly matches her stark and haunting narratives of real-life struggle with a brassy wit that sets her apart from her contemporaries in its fearlessness. Her strengths as a songwriter are exemplified by her self-titled EP, and full-length debut Motorhome. She's been hailed by No Depression as, “a new Loretta Lynn, speaking her mind... Throw in a little Townes Van Zandt mixed with Joan Jett and you've got a listener who's going to grab a lot of people's attention who are disillusioned with country's offerings as of late.”
Currently preparing the release of her sophomore album "Driving In The Dark" (produced by Leeroy Stagger), Mariel Buckley’s skills as a singer-songwriter and performer continue to impress new listeners while her long-time supporters look on with an assured understanding that they knew the depth of her talents from the beginning.
As a songwriter, Jay threads together the colours of his own ancestral traditions: Dene spirituals, Irish ballads, Canadian folk and rock. He was raised in a family of accomplished musicians on the tundra of Yellowknife, where his music electrifies its never-ending days and nights.
Whether on the main stage of a summer festival or headlining a shadowy cabaret, Jay captivates. He is equally arresting as a solo performer, crooning over acoustic guitar and piano, as the front-man of an eight-piece rock band, baiting dance floors with infectious hooks and boundless energy.
