    In June 2013, seventeen young musicians piled into two vans and drove from their hometown of Austin to a brownstone in Queens, where they took up residency for a month. It was Mother Falcon’s first trip outside of Texas and another turning point in a very unlikely story.

    With an insistent focus on trying new methods of creation, this unlikely indie orchestra delivers while staying rooted in their desire to be simultaneously adventurous and accessible.

    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!

    Songwriter turned solo artist Phoebe Ryan's star is set to burn brighter than ever in 2015. A powerful voice in every feature, Phoebe's energy and charisma strikes frequent comparison to the likes of Tove Lo and other Scandinavian pop artists. Her cover mash of R.Kelly and Miguel quickly climbed to the #1 spot on Hype Machine and now counts almost 150k plays on Soundcloud. Now Phoebe's ready to share her personal sound and the first taste is "Mine".

    "Mine" is upbeat and clever, dancing on the line between electronica and pop and backed by explosive instrumentals and memorable melodies. Phoebe's knack for great hooks and boldly feminist lyrics prove she's ready to bring new life to the pop genre.

    DJ TABS is a music lover and aficionado raised in Parkdale. He's been researching and digging for music since the age of 12, influenced by Parkdale's colourful new immigrants, working class people, and artists. He's an expert in hip-hop and R&B, and incorporates a touch of old school, reggae, soca, and house to complement his selection.

    He is currently the Saturday night resident DJ at The Parkdale Drink. His "Get Down Saturday Nights" started in 2007, and is presently the longest-running weekly urban party in Toronto. You can catch him around the city at local bars, night clubs, and special events. When he's not party rocking, he's playing basketball and seeking out his next favourite pair of kicks for his collection.

    Prism Tats is a Los Angeles-based rock 'n roll band that is the creation of the deceptively sophisticated South African musician, Garett van der Spek.

    Although it began as a one-man band with a drum machine keeping the beat for van der Spek's quite modestly self-described "yelping and noodling", after enlisting a live drummer and bass player, Prism Tats is quickly gaining momentum.

    DJ NaNa believes that the art of Turntablism is a science. The same precision and dedication scientists put into research and experiments, is what NaNa is known for putting into his own artform. His influences range from the common (Wu Tang Clan, Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z). to the not so obvious (Zamfir, Portishead, Lamb, Fleetwood Mac), and everything else in between. A true music connoisseur, his knowledge of diverse genres of music is almost as impressive as his knack for combining them.
