Tim Hicks

Tim Hicks

Hicks continues to lead the way, expanding the songwriting and style that helped define today’s country music. The platinum selling entertainer is a “true star on the Canadian country music scene” (GoBe Weekly), “proving he knows how to tailor his songs to his ever-expanding audience” and commemorating his wide-open sound as one of the defining influences on today’s Canadian County Music.

Avenue Inn

Avenue Inn has carved a unique space in the Canadian music scene since their formation in 2012, playing countless of shows around southern Ontario and sharing the stage with acclaimed artists such as The Sheepdogs, Burton Cummings, Coleman Hell and Young Empires. Influenced by the amplified and impassioned presence of bands such as the Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon, and the Arkells, the Niagara Falls natives have been carefully crafting their own approach to alternative rock with their newest album “Tonight”.

Avenue Inn
Great Lake Swimmers

Great Lake Swimmers

Great Lake Swimmers have been nominated twice for Juno Awards, have been shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Prize, and won a Canadian Indie Award for Favourite Folk/Roots Artist/Group. They have shared the stage as support for such musical luminaries as Robert Plant, Feist, Daniel Lanois, and Calexico, and have appeared as headliners at many of Canada’s major folk music festivals.

Spencer Burton

The singer-songwriter, fulltime family man and part-time farmer lives on his own grid, growing his own produce and raising his own livestock. “It’s a labor of love,” he says. “That’s actually a good way to describe my music. “I don’t want to do anything with my music, with my life, with anything that I do that doesn’t involve love. … I’ve just gone through so many things in my life, especially with music — I’ve gone from rock ’n’ roll to punk to all this different stuff, folk music — it all boils down to doing what I do because it makes me feel good. … My music is a personal thing, just like this farm.”
