Post Script
Genre: Singer/Songwriter

Post Script distills optimistic melancholia by exploring their entwined histories. The striking effervescence of Steph Blais in harmonic unity with Paul Cournoyer's rich baritone creates a conduit for the voices of their franco-albertan roots to resound with the reflection of modern humanity. The guitar pendulum swings from Nashville pulse to crystalline delicacy, weaving the soothing tone of Paul's stand up bass with enigmatic familiarity. Like a lustrous new dress stitched from vintage cloth Post Script is a gasp of nostalgia in a breath of fresh air.


Ayla Brook & the Sound Men
Genre: Folk

Ayla Brook is one of the truest raw songwriter's on the prairies. From his beginnings in Lily Plain Saskatchewan, to success records recorded with AA Sound System, to now his solo work - Ayla has remained tried and true. His new release, "(I Don't Want To Hear Your) Break Up Songs" is exactly that, a tapestry of hurtin' and feelin' tunes about life on and off the barstools. Joined by his regular 5 piece band, The Sound Men, Ayla can be seen packing the dance floors of Alberta honkytonks soaked in wine and whiskey. He's made a name for himself on the road, supporting such diverse acts as Danny Michel, Daniel Romano and the Arkells and is always up for the next great adventure. 2018 saw Ayla Brook & The Sound Men nominated for three Edmonton Music Awards and taking home “Roots Artist of the Year”, along with a full summer of folk and indie music festivals.
