    Born and raised in White Rock BC to a nurse and a marijuana farmer, Molly started writing songs when she was 14. Co-founder of the indie pop band "The Oh Wells," Molly left the group after 5 years due to "creative differences" and an unpleasant experience with a shady "manager." Molly took a break from the indie music scene and rediscovered her love for country and soul music. Now she writes songs about everything she feels needs to be said in today's world. She is one half of the father/daughter duet "GriffinHeart" and co-host of "3 Chords & The Truth." Her voice is strong, literally and figuratively, and she can't help but tell the truth as she sees it, with as much good humour as she can.

    Blue Moon Marquee:

    Stemming from the Badlands of the Rocky Mountain prairies, Blue Moon Marquee is a self-styled gypsy blues band. This authentic duo writes and performs original compositions influenced by early blues, swing, and ragtime. A.W. Cardinal, a Metis of Cree heritage, howls with a distinctive thick and smoky vocal while playing a jazz tinged blues guitar. Jasmine Colette, aka Badlands Jazz, is the rhythm section who not only commands the upright bass but also keeps the swing with both feet while singing harmonies. Blue Moon Marquee's passionate performances and smouldering onstage chemistry is their trademark, and the way Colette's velvet tones lift A.W.'s beaten down "bukowski-esque" mystique is something that enthrals audiences from the back room bar to the public square.

    Jack Garton:

    Steeped in the solitude of the mountains and islands of the Pacific Northwest, raised in the boisterous and irreverent East Vancouver arts community, Jack Garton’s music is a dance party for the vulnerable at heart. In the lineage of Weird and Wonderful Canadian songwriters Leonard Cohen, k.d.Lang, Corb Lund and Geoff Berner, Garton’s songs alchemize brokenness and pride, and celebrate the sheer “absurd difficulty of being alive” (Geoff Berner) with wit and grace. Over the last ten years while touring Canada, the USA and Europe, Garton has developed a distinctive voice on the accordion, mixing cajun, European and country styles with ease into an exciting roots music feast. Whether backed by his powerful band the Demon Squadron or solo, armed with an accordion and trumpet, his shows are theatrical, fluid, confessional, and fun. They reflect a lifetime of devotion to the art of live music as well as an impressive breadth of life experience including his roles as a father and husband, local gravedigger, theatre artist and music teacher.

    Los Duendes is Vancouver's very own Psych Latin Fusion group! Infectious tropical rhythms intertwined with spicy Latin melodies designed make people get uplifted and groove.

    The term “Psych Cumbia” has found its place in Latin America as a way of referring to various different styles of tropical Latin American music. Los Duendes performs topicalized Andean guitar, Jazz, Cumbia, Salsa and Soulful House giving birth to a whole new danceable musical universe.

    Tener Duende loosely means having soul, a heightened state of emotion, expression and authenticity. The artistic and especially musical term was derived from the duende, an elf or goblin-like magical creature in Spanish mythology. El duende is the spirit of evocation. It comes from inside as a physical/emotional response to art. 'The duende is not in the throat; the duende climbs up inside you, from the soles of the feet.' It is what gives you chills, makes you smile or cry as a bodily reaction to an artistic performance that is particularly expressive.
