LUKA (Toronto, ON)
LUKA’s sweet and gentle romantic ballads are sure to win over even the most frigid of hearts. His delivery is direct and simple, armed with no more than his acoustic guitar – his haunting and melancholic music is certain to strike a chord with every audience member. Creator of one of our favorite records of 2016, Summon Up a Monkey King, LUKA keeps getting better.
COZMOS QUARTETTE (Hamilton, ON)
Coszmos Quartette are a dreamy new band that you probably don’t know just how much you love yet. Blending folk, western-art, chamber and rock (among other influences), CQ are dreamy, gentle art-folk at it’s finest. With a great debut record in tow on Hamilton’s awesome HAVN Records, Coszmos Quartet are a band to get lost in.

SCOTT MERRITT (Guelph, ON)
Scott Merritt is a Guelph legend. An internationally respected recording artist and music producer, Merritt has been active since 1980. During that time he has released six albums under his own name on labels that include Duke Street Records, IRS Records and MCA/Universal Records. Clever, powerful and intimate, Merritt is a force. With his latest album, Of, ranking among his finest work and his live performances seeming to better every time he takes the stage, Merritt continues to reach new heights.
ANAMAI (Toronto, ON)
Toronto’s ANAMAI is the experimental folk project of Anna Mayberry (HSY) and David Psutka (Egyptrixx, Hiawatha). With their exceptional 2015 debut, Sallows, on Buzz Records making them critical darlings, ANAMAI proved their worth as one of the most acclaimed acts at Kazoo! Fest 2016. With sparse but layered music, ANAMAI leaves you with the suspicion that something even heavier might be lying underneath. Feel the weight.

MARISA ANDERSON (Portland, OR)
Marisa Anderson channels the history of the guitar and stretches the boundaries of tradition. Her playing is fluid, emotional, and masterful, featuring compositions and improvisations that re-imagine the landscape of American music. Her work applies elements of minimalism, electronic music, drone and 20th century classical music to compositions based on blues, jazz, gospel and country music.
BRY WEBB (Guelph, ON)
Guelph’s own poet laureate, Bry Webb weaves together the honest sentiments that get us all through each day. A deeply affecting singer/songwriter, Bry’s peaceful and sincere performances are full of celebratory, nostalgic and touching songs, delivered in a way that makes you understand why he’s been so influential in Canadian music for the past 10+ years.
