    As a singer and lead guitarist in rock band Gomez, Ben Ottewell is well known for his unmistakable voice and talent for blistering and inspired guitar solos. Rolling Stone declared, "Gomez's not-so-secret weapon is Ben Ottewell.” And as GQ Magazine once wrote and anyone listening can attest, "[his] voice is not of this world.” Since his first solo release, Shapes & Shadows (2011), Ottewell has been pleasing audiences with a series of successful acoustic tours across the UK, US and Australia. Now with a newly-recorded album of songs for his second solo project, Rattlebag, the singer is set to return to the road, performing his new music as well as a few Gomez favorites.

    W/ Special Guest Spencer Burton

    CCMA Award Nominee Jessica Mitchell is, at heart, a storyteller – an open book. From Toronto, she has spent the last decade digging deeper into her artistry, focusing on writing new music and crafting her richly unique sound, which has led her to become one of the music industry's best-kept secrets. Influenced by artists such as Sheryl Crow, Tori Amos and Radiohead, Mitchell’s music tells it like it is, while delivering emotional vulnerability that showcases a more mysterious truth, felt through tracks such as “Workin' on Whiskey” and the soul searching “Grown Up Things". Special Guest Spencer Burton opens the evening. Spanning a musical life with hardcore beginnings, to the somber strings of his acoustic guitar in his country-folk infused solo project, Spencer Burton is a mainstay musical virtuoso.

    Simon Okely is lost in time. Or at least, his songs sound that way: warm, near-whispered indie-rock love letters to the 60s and 70s rhythm and blues records his parents would play on family car rides down Australia’s winding west coast, heavy on nostalgia and even heavier on imagination. “I try not to be too caught up in trends and what’s popular in music now and just focus in on my passions, my influences,” grins the Melbourne songwriter better known as Slow Dancer, whose 2014 debut Surrender was a melt-your-heart, Fleetwood Mac-with-Neil Young licks “pop postcard” from another time, another place.

    Mike Skwark is three years into making DIY hip hop (performing as smrtdeath, lil death, little seth and sethany. Mike sort of is part of a larger community that's more based out of more cultural meccas like Toronto or New York City and some Scandinavian countries, too, that have all sort of had this internet culture boom and internet hip hop artist boom," said Schellenberg. "Stuff like Yung Lean and Kitty, Hot Sugar, Antwon, Big Baby Ghandi – people who produce these really great videos and sort of use that as their leverage to try and pursue the greater market.

    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!

    W/ Solo Jones

    Rapper Joyner Lucas was born in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1988 and developed his love for hip-hop at an early age. When he was just seven, he was already writing his own rhymes under the moniker G-Storm, and would go on to collaborate with his uncle (who was just a few years older than him) on various musical projects. In his teens, he briefly worked under the stage name Future Joyner, but decided to work under his birth name in 2012. In 2015, having already created original work for most of his life, Lucas’ first solo mixtape, Along Came Joyner, was released. It featured the breakout single and video “Ross Capicchioni,” a song inspired by near-death shooting of a Detroit teen of the same name, told from the perspective of both the victim and the shooter. Several more successful singles followed, and in 2016, Lucas signed to Atlantic Records. His debut album, 508-507-2209, was released in the summer of 2017.
