    Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches. Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!

    Like all trailblazers, Jacob Banks defies any and all boundaries. His ear-catching signature sound remains equally steeped in the swing of R&B, the grit of rock ‘n’ roll, the gusto of hip-hop, and the power of pop.

    The singer/songwriter moved from Nigeria to Birmingham at the age of 13, and began singing, playing guitar and writing songs at the age of 20. He got his start recording songs for friends to listen to in their cars and hitting the open mic circuit before self-releasing his first EP The Monologue in 2013.

    He has since released independent EP The Paradox and made his debut on Interscope Records with The Boy Who Cried Freedom EP, praised by everyone from The New York Times to Vogue, with Time recognizing “Chainsmoking” as one of the “Best Songs of 2017 So Far” and The FADER naming “Mercy” one of their “Songs You Need in Your Life This Week.”

    Jacob has recently introduced “Unknown (To You)” as the first single from his forthcoming full-length album, The Village. The track has received critical acclaim, featured on The New York Times’ “The Playlist” and NYLON’s “Soundcheck: The 11 Best Releases of the Week” upon release.

    Having supported Alicia Keys, Sam Smith and Emeli Sandé on tour, Jacob is now playing to festival crowds including Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, The Meadows, Firefly, and Outside Lands. The New York Times named Jacob one of “12 Notable Acts” at SXSW. This fall, Jacob will embark on his headlining North American Into the Wild tour. The tour will kick off with a show at LA’s The Roxy on November 2nd, which sold out 3 months in advance, and will run through December 5th in Atlanta.

    Its an old saying, time flows away like the water in a river. A comparison that has more to it than you might think at first glance. Whether its a raging torrent or a bubbling backyard brook, both water and time can hide, obscure, and keep us from seeing some of the priceless treasures that lie just beneath the surface. The key to finding them is simply knowing where to look, and when to listen.

    Cat Clyde, a brand new artist out of Stratford, Ontario. A fresh take on the classic sounds of yesteryear; breathing new life into the velvety vocal, tack-piano, slide-guitar-style that can instantly walk you through the swinging doors of a packed saloon. With influences ranging from Etta James to Janis Joplin to Lead Belly; hers is a mix that goes down smoother than a neat glass of mellow Kentucky bourbon. No longer do you need to reach for your trusty sifting pan and river boots to find gold. You just need to know one name.

    A great DJ can make a room fall in love for a moment, simply because DJing is more than selecting a few songs. It’s about generating shared moods, understanding the feelings of a group of people and directing them into a better place.

    Inspired by all genres of music, known for his ability to do the unexpected, meanwhile keeping things fresh; DJ Nana has been moving rooms to his beat since age Fourteen.

    Nana dedicates the precision of a mechanic or a scientist when crafting his art, as he believes that DJing and Turntablism is a science.
