She became heavily involved in musical theatre; always the goofy performer and began taking voice lessons at the age of 15 (Lord knows she was pitchy.) Musical theatre became her life but the sweet sounds of soul always had her heart.

    Marlie is a Vocal instructor at The Sarah McLachlan School of Music, a professional Voice Actor, continues to sing with Side One and Mooncoin Productions, and stepping back into the world of film and TV. Oh.. and also has two extremely adorable baby cats;) She just finished her return to The Arts Club Stage for their production of Rock of Ages the musical, playing the lead role of Sherrie.

    This is the year for the release of Marlie's powerful soulful sound with a retro funky vibe and at times… a humorous wit. Her debut Album is set for release March 2018. marliecollins.com

The band moves effortlessly between toe-tapping dance music, the yearning of country blues and the embellishments and energy of ragtime and jazz.

    "While they may be devoted to the precious music of a long gone golden era, they still have an awful lot to offer the present and future, as music this good is evidently timeless." David Morrison, Folk Radio UK

    Reed Turchi:

    What began as an obsession with Mississippi Hill Country blues has become a burgeoning blues orchestra at the vanguard of a new American roots music. Raised in the Swannanoa valley of Western North Carolina, multi-instrumentalist Reed Turchi is a producer, label head, band leader and solo artist. He's also a master of guitar driven blues that shapeshift seamlessly between acoustic slide, electric juke joint boogie, and the improvisational, groove-driven, massive sound of his Nashville based Kudzu Orkestra. His latest albums Tallahatchie, and Live At Soulshine evince his ability to play elemental blues solo, and to lead entire improvisational orchestras on the very same theme.

    Joe Nolan is back. The roots rocker from Edmonton, Alberta is on the verge of releasing a ground-breaking new record, Cry Baby. This time around Nolan makes a record which hits close to home: recorded in the dead of winter with Scott Franchuk, it’s a departure from his previous work Tornado, which was produced by Colin Linden in Nashville, TN back in 2014.

    Nolan’s constant strength is his lyrical ability which he continues to deliver through and through. His words and imagery pierce the heart of the listener and pull you in, they will have you hanging off each breath. He is not afraid to bleed - his open, wounded-heart delivery reminds us that we are all human. His unapologetic vulnerability is brave and endearing. The album journeys through his early days, his first love, his feelings of failure and his never-ending search of finding his place, and where he fits in. A second chance, a new beginning.

The most prominent of these ingredients is his darker take on North American Folk, he works with gritty and abrasive vocal tones that add a timelessness to his voice. Secondly, Brian uses warmer tones in his vocals coupled with ornamentation inherent to that of classic R&B. It is here where he smoothens the edges of his folk sound. His grit immediately becomes more palatable. Finally, Brian draws great inspiration and style from the Irish ballad, Brian shapes his writing tightly around the structure and word play of old Irish lamentations.
