About this event

Toronto-based producer Junia-T is on the rise. Whether its touring the world with Jessie Reyez as her DJ and longtime creative collaborator or busy in the studio cooking up tracks with the who’s who of the up and coming global Hip Hop and R&B scenes, Junia-T’s incredible creative influence and contagious positive vibes are instantaneously winning people over everywhere he goes. His forthcoming album, Studio Monk, features an impressive list of artists, including Jessie Reyez, Husser (Montreal), Benjamin A.D. (UK), Miloh Smith (Atlanta), Sean Leon (Toronto), FAIZA (CTV’s acclaimed reality show, The Launch) and more. The album is being released via Pirates Blend (A Tribe Called Red, Saul Williams, Haleek Maul, Bedouin Soundclash, et cetera) and its arrival is garnering significant attention and anticipation.

Witch Prophet is a queer, Ethiopian/Eritrean, singer-songwriter, and the co-CEO of Heart Lake Records. She provides her fans with a soundscape of vocal layers, loops, raps, and harmonies on a bed of hip-hop, jazz, and soul-inspired beats. Think Erykah Badu meets Lauryn Hill meets Portishead. She finds depth and connection in creating music as a portal for self-growth and discovery, as she navigates and better understands her cultural and queer identity. Witch Prophet has shared the stage with and opened for acts like THEESatisfaction, Shabazz Palaces, Lido Pimienta, A Tribe Called Red, Climbing Poetree, SAMMUS, Sean Leon, JPEGMAFIA, The Cliks, Rae Spoon, Zaki Ibrahim, Kae Sun, and LAL, to name a few. Her vocals have appeared on Shad's Flying Colours LP (2013), 2009's Polaris Prize winner Fucked Up's LP Dose Your Dreams (2018), as well as DillanPonders’ album Because We’re Alive (2020). She has toured Europe independently twice; playing shows in Paris, Amsterdam, London, and Berlin, as well as performed at North American and European music festivals like: Black Women Rock, New Skool Rules, Soul Of Brooklyn, Allied Media Conference, Montreal Jazz Festival, Sappy Fest, Electric Eclectic, Summerworks, Ottawa Capital Pride, Pride Toronto, Pop Montreal, Halifax Pop Explosion and so many more! In March 2020, Witch Prophet released her Ontario Arts Council funded sophomore LP D.N.A Activation. An ode to her Ethiopian and Eritrean ancestral roots, fusing Jazz, Hip-Hop, Soul and RnB with songs sung in English, Amharic, and Tigrinya. Co-produced by herself and her partner SUN SUN, praised by press and music lovers alike, DNA Activation was shortlisted for the 2020 Polaris Music Prize. She has since been signed to Ki An Projects, a new label in the UK for the release of a deluxe edition of DNA Activation. The video for her song "Tesfay", directed by Leah Vlemmiks, was nominated for the 2021 Prism Prize and was an official selection at the 2021 SXSW Music Video awards. She was the only Canadian nominee and was alongside artists like Run The Jewels.

TRP.P (pronounced “trippy”) is a Toronto band, breaking barriers on the Hip-Hop/R&B scene. Composed of Truss (producer, singer/songwriter) and Phoenix Pagliacci (singer/songwriter), the dynamic duo began their collective artistry in the summer of 2017. In October of the same year, they released their self-titled debut EP. Since then, they have been unstoppable. TRP.P has made their mark in Toronto as a group to know. In 2018, NOW Magazine listed them among the list of Must See acts performing at Toronto’s Pride. Dubbing themselves “The Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth of R&B”. Truss and Phoenix have an undeniable chemistry that is both relatable and infectious. The two have performed across North America, opening for heavy hitters like Oakland songstress Kehlani and Baltimore soulbird Mumu fresh. Their EP, 2TRP.P, was released in September 2019.

STORRY writes and produces her music, and is intrinsically involved in all aspects of her career from designing album covers to producing music videos. Her debut concept album CH III: The Come Up was released on February 20, 2020. Music News Digest wrote that STORRY has the rare "ability to sing opera and then pull off R&B without losing a tad of authenticity" and dubbed her album release concert in Toronto "a debut of a lifetime." Music Crowns called it "a new chapter in music," that her vocals "must be heard to be believed," and that "STORRY, with her on-point delivery and shattering vocals, will be the next big name in music." This is just the tip of the iceberg. STORRY has been nominated for a JUNO for her single “Another Man,” which was produced by reggae royalty, Sly & Robbie. An almost unheard-of accomplishment for an artist who just began releasing music independently. STORRY's art is raw and honest. If it doesn't touch you, it will hit you in the face.
