// Her Harbour
Following the release of her debut album Winter’s Ghost on E-tron Records, Her Harbour was named “Female Vocalist of the Year” by Radio Canada’s Medium Large, Nightlife Magazine’s “Artiste à Découvrir” and featured in Independent Music News Uk’s “20 Canadian Acts to Look out for in 2014”, among other accolades. Winter’s Ghost has fared well on campus radio stations across Canada and received airplay on CBC and Radio Canada. Her Harbour has showcased at festivals including NXNE, Sled Island, Kazoo! Fest, CityFolk, Megaphono, Ottawa Bluesfest, Arboretum Festival and performed as a as an opening act for notable artists including Agnes Obel, Chad Van Gaalen, Cousins, Great Lake Swimmers and Esmerine.

The Voice of Luke Kuplowsky, aka LUKA, has that rare ability to register love and hurt in a tangible and tactile manner. It is a voice of quiet intensity, capable of producing an ASMR-like response: an embodied and euphoric rush through the subtle wavering and control of his words. At times, recalling the conversational deadpan of Lou Reed and at others the airy lightness of Arthur Russell, LUKA's voice is a nuanced and rich tenor that is comforting as it is arresting. His songs are gentle meditations on love guided by flamenco-tinged nylon string guitar, and supported by electric flourishes (Stephen Prickett), meditative drumming (Evan Cartwright) and two vocalists (Ada Dahli and Julie Arsenault), whose harmonies strike a Cohen-esque doo-wop.

// Drago Dit Dragon
Drago Dit Dragon is the project of Toronto musician Matthew Drago. Combining eccentric adventurism with lush production and solid songwriting, Drago walks a line between the grounded sound created by the many instruments he plays and his ever-expanding capacity for virtual flourishes. Producing his music at home has allowed Drago to create and live within his own playground of sounds; 2013's Spear saw a range of atmospheres, from up-tempo tracks with a smattering of mandolin to slower, more bluesy introspective work. On String Fings, released in February of 2016, Drago explores and questions existential helplessness, anxiety, the joy of finding love with someone just as weird as you, and what will happen to us and our planet full of junk after we're gone. Matthew Drago, alongside band-mates Sam Maloney (Kaleidoscope Horse) and Quinn Jacobs are releasing a 3rd EP in the summer of 2017.
