Grand Analog is a group of record collectors, musicians and self described beat junkies. You can easily find any of the crew DJing at various clubs around Toronto. The Grand Analog sound is a beautiful mess of rap'n'roll, dub and soul. Each personality in this collective brings something unique to the table. Odario and DJ Ofield blame their father, a reggae DJ from the 80s, for cursing them with the love of music, bass and trouble. Catalist was also born into a musical family, inheriting a vintage collection of analog keyboards and an uncanny resemblance to Frank Zappa. Warren Bray is the secret sauce on bass and TJ Garcia trips the light fantastic behind his drum kit. The band’s critically acclaimed albums, “Modern Thunder”, “Metropolis Is Burning” and “Calligraffiti”, boast an infectious array of soundscapes “sweetening its hip-hop cocktail with everything they can get their hands on: blazing rock guitars, dubby reggae, wah-wah funk and Bo Diddley beats.”
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!

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.
Rebecca Nazz was born to entertain. At her first competition, the crowd asked to hear more and the onstage rush had her hooked.

Influences like Janelle Monae, Winehouse, The Marvalettes, Nneka, Prince, Michael Jackson, and James Brown, inspire those pop, soulful elements her music reflects.
Recognized by her community, this Canadian singer/songwriter is eager to grab the rest of Toronto’s attention following the release of “Loved” with upcoming shows. She continues to evolve as an artist and plans to share that experience every step of the way through her music. This new EP “Loved” is an exciting start to a brand new journey.
