King of Foxes
Genre: Pop/Rock

King of Foxes offers up something of value: a musical divining rod that pulls the listener to an inner river that is at once both familiar and uncanny. Delivered in a voice that is equal parts fierce and fragile, frontwoman Olivia Street’s lyrics are poetic and evocative, deftly interwoven with seeing-eye guitar hooks and a cogent understanding of songcraft. Her signature sound is quirky and textural incorporating elements of Brit-pop and melodic indie rock that inform a well-read musical style. King of Foxes recently participated in Canada’s Music Incubator’s AE West Artist Entrepreneur program and were honoured with an “Artist to Watch” nomination at the 2018 Edmonton Music Awards.


Carter & the Capitals
Genre: Funk

Carter & the Capitals are a high energy five-piece funk group from Edmonton, Alberta. Known for their signature, hard-driving sound, soulful vocals, and catchy instrumental riffs, the Capitals fuse the most danceable elements of the pop and funk genres. By bottling up deep grooves from their wide range of influences and combining them with tight, snappy arrangements, the band offers its own unique take on Western Canadian funk.
