    Toronto tastemakers INDIE88 calls Mappe Of’s music “dark yet uplifting, non-conforming but an entirely accessible experience steeped in the depths of experimental folk.” A Northern Star, A Perfect Stone, the debut album (out July 28 via Paper Bag Records) from the composer and experimental folk musician, is a sonic world unto itself, an aural landscape steeped in experience and imagination.

    Mappe Of brings A Northern Star, A Perfect Stone to the Drake Underground this summer, in his first ever public concert.

    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!

    Gordi is the stage name of Australian folktronica singer/songwriter, Sophie Payten. She's is based out of Sydney, Australia, where Payten currently resides.

    “Lyrics to me are everything,” says Gordi “music is kind of what encases this story that you’re trying to tell. The music is obviously what makes people fall in love with a song first, but what eventually speaks to people, whether they know it or not, is the actual words that are being said.”

    Gordi’s lyrics are stark, honest and soul-searching, which are elevated by the album’s intricate and careful musical arrangements. Like the contemporary artists such as Fleet Foxes, Beth Orton and Laura Marling as well as “the trifecta” of Billy Joel, Carole King and James Taylor that she listened to with her mum growing up – she’s unafraid to sit in contemplative melancholy.
