Art Napoleon

Art Napoleon, a bushman from the boreal foothills of Northern BC, can still skin a moose with a pocket knife but he is known more as an underground troubadour whose words and music bridge cultures. He is an extremely versatile bilingual singer/songwriter armed with a wicked sense of humor and an uncanny ability to improvise and engage audiences of all ages. A born entertainer, he can embody both trickster and shaman to cast a spell on the gathered.

Raised by Cree-speaking grandparents in the remote northern woodlands, it's probably a good thing that Napoleon turned from hunting and gathering to crafting songs with clever, thoughtful lyrics. Whether he is telling a story or singing about a life of intriguing and mystical experiences and characters, he manages to be both irreverent and deeply spiritual.

Napoleon has been featured on many radio and TV programs including Zed TV, Dead Dog Comedy, CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival, CBC Roundup, Cree for Kids, Beyond Words, All Points West, Rez Blues and is also host of CHUM TV's The New Canoe. His previous indie recordings have been nominated for numerous music awards including the WCMAs, Canadian Folk Awards, the NAMMIES and the CAMAs. Art's latest CD, Siskabush Tales, delves into the alt-country fold and is receiving rave reviews across Canada. His moose-nose stew has also been known to heal broken hearts and encourage compassion for the culturally deprived.

Drew Nielsen Band

Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Drew Nielsen fronts his eponymous Philadelphia-based quartet, featuring Kirby Son on bass, Rich Blackwell on drums, and Jordan Silber on guitar. The band formed when manager Diane Zaiko of Junctions Music brought them together for a recording session. Their experience in the studio was so positive and the music meshed so well that they remain together, performing strong today.

With influences and comparisons to bands like The Lumineers, Fun, and Death Cab for Cutie, the Drew Neilsen Band thrive on the emotion they infuse into their "indie/acoustic rock" sound.

"...we want our music to come off as very honest. We are not playing "rockstar" we simply love music and want to share it with the world.
- Drew Neilsen

The band currently performs in and around the Philadelphia area. Stay tuned to their Facebook and Reverbnation pages for the latest Drew Neilsen Band updates.

New Mystery Girl

“Twist City” is the first album from New Mystery Girl, a band project envisioned by Chrissy Flatt and abetted by a crew of like minded Austin, TX rock’n’rollers. Ms. Flatt, known for her previous works “Wings of a Butterfly” and “Walk With Kings”, comes out swinging with twelve fresh original songs bringing together influences from 60′s girl groups and British invasion pioneers to 70′s glam and early punk. Longtime cohorts Eric Hisaw (guitar) and Ron Flynt (bass/keyboards) show up on most tracks alongside drummers Lisa Pankratz and Freddie Steady Krc. Guitarist Eve Monsees lends her stylish licks to a pair of songs and chimes with the majority of the harmony vocals. Brian Standefer adds his atmospheric cello to a trio of more meditative numbers. At the center of it all are Chrissy’s voice, guitar and words.

Their blend ” fuzzy, jazzy indie swing/pop” and “wet roots/dry cone pedal steel cosmic jive” is always a treat to behold live.

Stevie Nics

Stevie Nics brings the "rhythm" back to R&B, using his engineering skills to craft smooth odes to love and sensuality. The 23-year-old singer out of Phoenix, Arizona writes, produces, and performs his songs. At the same time, Stevie flashes a bit of a Russell Simmons / music mogul vibe, creating his own clothing line, CLSSY NRDS. Stevie's sound is ethereal, breathing slow grooves over slow backbeats to tell his stories of love, promise, lust, and the search for that someone special. Stevie describes his songwriting as "bringing meaning back to R&B," a genre whose true sensual artform seems lost in recent years in favor of shock-value lyricists. Judge for yourself whether Stevie hits his mark of creating a true-to-form R&B songwriting.
