Josh Taerk:
Josh Taerk may only be 24 but he’s already able to look back on many successes. His debut album ‘Josh’, tours through the UK, with select shows in the US and Canada, building a worldwide fan base and impressing industry peers such as Rock’n’Roll Hall of Famers John Oates and Max Weinberg. He now looks forward to his soon to be released second album ‘Here’s To Change’.

Back in 2010, Canadian singer-songwriter Josh was playing local venues in his hometown of Toronto when Max Weinberg - Drummer for Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, who just happens to be one of Josh’s biggest influences – saw him play. “He blew me away with his presentation and song writing abilities,” said Weinberg about Josh after inviting him to play support at his sold out show in New Jersey.

The New Schematics
"Nashville’s own The New Schematics create an alt-pop melodic ruckus that places them somewhere between The Killers and the radio-friendly side of Ryan Adams...Keep your eyes (and ears) out for these guys as this debut release [self-titled EP] already has many of the markings of a seasoned classic." - (Will Hodge, Noisetrade).

With a recent placement of their song "All In" on ABC Television Network's prime time show Blood & Oil, The New Schematics have been building steady momentum from day one. Debuting in October 2015 with their self-titled EP, they've already been featured as "Buzz Cut of the Week" twice on Nashville's 102.9 The Buzz, played 60+ shows in 20+ cities all around the US and Canada, raked in 100k+ Spotify streams, released two music videos directed by Matt Delisi (Drew Holcomb, Judah and the Lion, Delta Saints), and topped the Noisetrade rock charts.

Known for their diverse sound and high-energy live shows, The New Schematics combine both modern and classic influences (The Killers, The Cars, Bruce Springsteen, and Dawes) as one of only a handful of bands bringing rock 'n' roll to and from Music City. According to Andy Herrin (DJ at 102.9, The Buzz), "They're the type of band you root for because anyone who can write and perform songs of that strength deserve to be heard, and honestly we as listeners deserve to hear them." (

They return to Toronto for the Spring leg of their #BornWithoutBordersTour in promotion of both their self-titled debut EP and recent re-imagining of that release, "The New Schematics (Unplugged+)".

The Riot Police
The Riot Police are a Lofi Indie Pop Rock band formed in Ottawa, ON. Based out of Toronto, the group consists of Alex Boyd (lead vocals, bass), Ian Sabourin (lead vocals, keys), Blayne Stone (lead guitar, vocals, Beats), and James Dewar (Drums/percussion). The band is an independent act that makes their name by delivering messages of peace, love and equality through their music. The latest release in 2014, “The Crossing” was their second album release. Now the band is hard at work on their next album to be released in 2016.
