  • 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!

  • With the release of her platinum-selling debut record in 2012 (released in Europe in 2013), and a relentless tour throughout Canada, France, Belgium and Switzerland, singer-songwritter Lisa LeBlanc had a brilliant launch to her career. Her irresistible charm lies in her unique self-described “folk-trash” style, and her upcoming mini-album Highways, Heartaches and Time Well Wasted is proof of her amazing creativity.

    Available on November 4th, 2014 via Bonsound, the opus is composed of five original tracks and a cover (arranged by Lisa) of the traditional folk song Katie Cruel, popularized by singer Karen Dalton.

    Craving adventure, Lisa LeBlanc hit the road in 2013 and followed the path of the Beat Generation across Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Austin and San Francisco. It was during this trip that she found the inspiration for the music on this record. Recorded on the fly in Charlo, New-Brunswick with her loyal musicians Maxime Gosselin (drums) and Jean-Philippe Hébert (guitar), Highways, Heartaches and Time Well Wasted is infused with the spirit of the Maritimes. Brad Barr, Émilie Bernard, Pierre-Guy Blanchard and François-Régis Pagé also participated in the recording of this EP, mixed by Pierre Girard and Joseph Donovan.

    The young and talented producer Emmanuel Ethier brought an unexpected creative force out of the 23-year-old Acadian by encouraging her to leave her comfort zone. The result of these spontaneous sessions is an Americana sound that perfectly suits the grounded and warm personality of Lisa LeBlanc.

Coupled with her voice, which covers five octaves, the sound is unparalleled, unbridled, and unforgettable. She debuted with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as a soprano in Osvaldo Golijov’s opera “Ainadamar” and later performed it at Carnegie Hall. The multi-talented powerhouse transitioned from opera to rock, Gingger then toured with the Smashing Pumpkins as a special guest on their 20th Anniversary tour.

Gingger composed music for the critically acclaimed 2011 Sundance U.S. Dramatic Audience Award Winner ‘Circumstance’ directed by Maryam Keshavarz. In addition to being the artist and co-composer behind the poignant score of Mel Gibson’s blockbuster “Passion of the Christ”, Gingger’s music can be heard in Mike Nichol’s film, “Charlie Wilson’s War”.

    Her film 'Monsoon Shootout' premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. She most recently guested on the new Katy Perry single 'Legendary Lover' due out later this year.
