    An Americana duo whose surreal songs make room for pop melodies, rock & roll muscle, out-of-the-box arrangements, and powerhouse vocal performances, Robin Alice is the unexpected pairing of songwriters Kelley Jakle and Jeff Hortillosa.

    Both bandmates had already left unique marks upon the music world by the time they crossed paths on the movie set of Pitch Perfect 3. A Kentucky native, Hortillosa cut his teeth as a member of Whiskey Shivers, an unconventional bluegrass band more grounded in punky, rule-breaking spirit than traditional twang. Meanwhile, Jakle had grown up in California, where she played coffeehouse gigs as a teenager before winning a handful of international titles with her college a cappella group. When she launched a parallel career as a Hollywood actress after graduation, those vocal chops landed her a recurring role in the Pitch Perfect series.

    Steadily, what began as an informal collaboration upon the Pitch Perfect 3 set turned into a proper duo, with the bandmates looking to a variety of influences — including Fleetwood Mac's harmony-heavy rock, St. Vincent's complex pop arrangements, Allison Krauss' swooning folk, and even 1960s psychedelia — as touchstones. It was a collaborative sound that allowed Hortillosa to flex his muscles as a diverse multi-instrumentalist, flanking Jakle's elastic voice with layers of interlocking guitar, bass, synthesizer, and percussion.

    CHRIS HO

    While singer-songwriter Chris Ho can seem mercurial at times, there is an undeniably deep feeling of hope and perseverance that speaks through his fervent melodies. His is the kind of voice that can captivate a room into quiet reflection. There is as much power behind it as restraint. It is this heart-on-sleeve intensity that drives him to not so much create but capture the bittersweet nature of love, loss, hope, and growth.

    Born in British Columbia in 1989, Chris grew up just outside of Vancouver and spent much of his youth teaching himself to sing and play the guitar. He became obsessed with the cathartic process of writing and recording, heavily influenced by artists such as Ben Gibbard, Nick Drake, Conor Oberst, Feist, and Bob Dylan. Most of his songs are unreleased and were written in Victoria where he completed his undergraduate studies in English Lit at UVic. Since that time however he has independently released an EP (Answers, 2011), a debut album (City Of Dust, 2012) which earned him an award for Songwriter of the Year in the 2012 Vancouver Island Music Awards, and a sophomore album following his hiatus (Places You’ve Been, 2017). He has toured Canada for both of his albums but also by rail, hired to perform on board VIA Rail’s passenger train from Vancouver to Toronto on multiple occasions. Likened in style to respected artists such as Dan Mangan, Neil Young and Gordon Lightfoot (CBC Radio 1/3, CBC on the Coast), Chris Ho’s soulful songs have been aired on indie radio stations across Canada, including CBC Radio.


    ADRIAN CHALIFOUR

    Victoria, BC-based singer-songwriter Adrian Chalifour has been performing heart-driven original music for more than 15 years, most notably as the founder and charismatic frontman of Towers and Trees, a solo home-recording project that grew into one of BC’s most notable indie bands. With T&T his songs have charted on Canadian radio and he has toured the country extensively, performing at festivals like Canadian Music Week, Indie Week, Breakout West and many more.

    In March 2019 Adiran made his national TV debut appearing on popular Canadian TV show The Launch, where he garnered rave reviews from living legend Nile Rodgers and pop sensation Bebe Rexha. The appearance marked a new chapter in his career beyond the T&T moniker and fulfilled a promise he made two years ago when he became a father: to do everything possible to show his daughter that gifts are worth honouring and dreams are worth pursuing.

He went on to record a further 3 albums that cemented his unique sound, culminating in his 4th and latest album, “Made in Canada” (2017), which also happens to be his first live recording.
