Carol Goodman

ENiiD Goodman (aka Carol) was born Nov. 21st, 1973 (a twin) in Ottawa to parents who immigrated from Sweden & England. She has called Wakefield, Québec her home for over 15 years and lives with her family on a 200 acre homestead called 100 Mile Farm. They offer fresh organic produce, a summer camp for children, and a venue for weddings and events. ENiiD’s name means “Spirit” in Welsh and is shared with her Swedish grandmother. Her debut album (Nov. 2015) is A Celebration of Joni Mitchell; songs by & for her + stories and 2 originals. A children’s choir sang with ENiiD on her album and at the Blacksheep with her full band (which includes Juno & Polaris prize winning drummer Bruce Cawdron.) She is also recording an album of originals which will be released in 2016. ENiiD loves to teach music, art and yoga to children and adults and is looking forward to her Sound of Music summer camp this July. One of her favorite venues to perform is the famous Blacksheep (voted one of the top 10 music venues in Canada) in Wakefield, QC to sold out crowds.

Nicole Coward

Songs that are simple but expressive, performances that are soft but powerful, Nicole "Songbird" Coward's music will leave you feeling inspired, moved and uplifted. Her musical inspiration hearkens back to the days when tunes by idols such as Joan Baez, Gordon Lightfoot and Joni Mitchell, were being played regularly on the radio. But Folk is not her only influential genre. She spent 7 years studying classical music and performing in Symphony orchestras and bands on French Horn and Flute before focusing on the acoustic guitar.

Nicole's self-produced debut album "Why Dont You Care" released in 2012, has been played on radio stations broadcasting all over the world. She has been featured on Rogers TV Daytime Toronto, Musically Yours, and Toronto Sessions and has done many live radio interviews throughout Ontario. Her recent EP "Strong Enough For Love" released September 2014 and produced by the esteemed Derek Downham is making some big positive waves. It has been added to playlists in over 100 radio stations across North America and the UK, received a CMJ add in its first week of radio promotions and was in the top 20 in the charts at KAOS radio and The Scope.

Nicole has performed at events such as Canada Blooms, Winterfolk and Brocks Big Bite. She has a residency performing at the prestigious Couples resort and is comfortable performing in all types of venues large and small. She plans to tour parts of Canada and the US in 2016.
