Nick Zubeck is a songwriter, guitarist, singer, teacher and recording artist from Toronto, and is currently living and working in Guelph, Ontario. He has recorded and released five full length albums under his own name, and has been involved with many other artists and projects over the last 15+ years.

As a guitarist and sideman, Nick has contributed to many projects including Polmo Polpo, Barzin, Great Lake Swimmers, Old Maps, and Western Terrestrial. Nick was hired to play with Sun Kil Moon in 2014, and has since toured Europe, Asia and the U.S. multiple times, playing Pitchfork Festival, Newport Folk Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, La Route De Rock, and many other festivals and concert halls.

Nick works out of his Guelph studio, Arthur North, and has done recording and production work for Sandro Perri, Barzin, Tyler Wagler, Rich Burnett, Jenny Omnichord, Joni Nehrita, Jude Vadala, Magnolius, LEO37, Dave Ulrich, Ben Bowen, Brenda McMorrow and others.


Ben Somer is a gifted songwriter with a knack for storytelling. His works are painstakingly candid snap-shots of the day-to-day which bring to mind the great songwriters of a bygone era. Armed with a razor-sharp wit and a gift for brevity, Somer crafts beautifully compelling songs that are as heartbreaking as they are tongue-in-cheek. His music has travelled across the country via radio, television, internet, and relentless touring. Part of a new generation of artists carrying on the Great Canadian Songwriting Tradition, Ben has performed hundreds of concerts ranging from intimate living room shows - playing to a handful of attentive listeners - to larger music festivals where he’s shared the stage with world-class artists. The future looks promising for the young musician, who has already garnered critical acclaim, and with a third studio album forthcoming it seems that Somer is well on his way to joining the ranks of Canada’s songwriting elite.

Skye Wallace's sound is exciting, dynamic, gritty, and beautiful. The backbone consists of her driving songs, juxtaposed with captivating storytelling and sweeping instrumentation. A truly powerful performer, this girl is known for her sultry songwriting and a charged live show that is bound to stick with you.
Listed as one of Blog TO’s Top 20 Folk & Roots Shows in Toronto last summer and hailed as Vancouver’s queen of dark folk, Skye Wallace truly is a “national treasure” (Sad Mag). This is a show you won’t want to miss.
