  • 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!

  • Allured by the pulsing incantations of cassette grain & VHS blips, live instrumentation and other found sound, Kodak To Graph’s Michael Maleki (22) delicately floats listeners through blooming clouds of synth-washes, haunting reverberations, and propulsive rhythms. Maleki’s candle-waxed R&B & flower-trailed soundscapes weave together the nostalgic tones and colors reminiscent of a quiet childhood with the urban bounce and rhythmic disposition of the more modern spirit.

  • With a voice as notable as his lyrics, Donovan Woods is a critically acclaimed and in-demand Canadian recording artist, performer and songwriter. His third record, “Don’t Get Too Grand”, featuring the hit single “Put On Cologne” garnered radio airplay around the world, and was nominated for “Roots & Traditional Album of the Year” at the 2014 Juno Awards. Splitting his time between Nashville and Toronto, Woods’ versatile songs have been recorded by everyone from Canadian indie artists to established stars like Tim McGraw or Alan Doyle (Great Big Sea), and been featured in television shows, major motion pictures and commercials. Piercingly honest and quietly anthemic, Woods sings with a striking sense of the world that produced him – the unsung towns of Canada’s industrial heartland. The result is music that’s transporting, but never loses the dry, self-deprecating humour that has endeared Woods to audiences from the start.
