What's Happening

Introducing Wendy McNeill, a master of poignant storytelling and captivating performances. With lyrics that delve into twisted perspectives and characters like a dead man's accordion or a misunderstood monster, McNeill's music is both playful and fierce. Armed with her beloved accordion, Ruby, she weaves intimate tales with a touch of the otherworldly, blending folk, noir, and heartfelt storytelling. Her latest album, "First There Were Feathers," explores the beauty and resilience of birds, drawing from science, literature, and personal experience. She sings about, and for, those on the frontline of these times- the literal 'canaries in the coal mines’. Joining her onstage for an unforgettable journey with bassist Mike Lent and violinist/trumpeter Daniel Lapp. 

Genre: Folk Noir/Singer Songwriter

Edmonton’s multi-faceted vocal powerhouse – VISSIA – has been carving out a niche in the pop world with her fearless sophomore album, With Pleasure. Hailed as a triumph of pop songwriting, it landed at No. 7 on CKUA’s 2021 Top 100 and has earned her high-profile appearances at c/o Pop in Cologne and the UK’s Great Escape Festival, further solidifying VISSIA’s reputation as an unmissable artist to watch. From R&B, soul, pop, and with a subtle tinge of her folk roots hidden in the details, With Pleasure sees VISSIA set her sights on exploration as she captures the essence of everyday life and turns it into gold. With infectious tracks like “On My Mind” and the haunting  “About Moving On,” VISSIA has proven herself to be a versatile and gifted artist with an undeniable presence. As VISSIA’s star continues to rise, she remains dedicated to expansion, passion, and her craft on her forthcoming album, Surfacing.
