Smyth Valley - http://smythvalley.com/
Smyth Valley is a Toronto based heavy rock band, drawing influence from both stoner rock and good ole home grown Canadian rock n roll. The trio is made up of Marc Crazyhorse, Craig Boduch (both formerly of the Toronto metal band Saprophyte) and Gordon McCready (former frontman of the Toronto rock band Headloss). The band got together in early 2016 and frenzied song writing ensued, followed by the recording of their debut ep.

Kyla Tilley (Montreal) - www.kylatilley.com/
Kyla Tilley is a Montreal based singer/songwriter/guitarist.
Accompanying herself on classical guitar, and taking inspiration from the likes of J.S. Bach, Jethro Tull, The Incredible String Band and John Prine, Kyla flavours her girl-with-a-guitar folk numbers with dissonant harmonies and alluring melodies. A modern-day minstrel, Kyla's story-telling style of song-writing encompasses elements from a wide selection of genres. Some of her lyrics touch on the realms of the fantastic, more deal with all-too-easily understood earthly matters. While some of her songs may induce unwelcome introspection, others uplift and empower with unrestrained joie de vivre.
