Irish singer-songwriter Paul Caldwell has the ability to seamlessly blend the soul of traditional Irish ballads with the nuance of Canadian folk. He grew up with Celtic music echoing through the rugged coastline in his hometown of Buncrana, and these traditional Irish tunes have reverberated deep into his soul. Caldwell spent a period of his life in Liverpool, before settling in Vancouver when he was 25. Although he feels a strong bond with Canada, he always carries a piece of Ireland and a piece of Liverpool with him.

Across 2020-2022, Caldwell released the first four singles from his Album ("Headlines", "Monday", "Every Time" & "Written All Over My Heart"). It was recorded by Vancouver based Producer Jeff Zipp, at Light Machine Records. Collectively, the singles have amassed an impressive 105,000 streams on Spotify and received radio play spots on CBC, Dublin City FM and Blues and Roots Radio. Last year Paul was voted into the Top 100 of the coveted CBC Searchlight competition, for his song “Headlines”.

The full album “Headlines” was released on June 17th, 2022. It is a deeply emotional record, subtly evoking nostalgia, heartache and hope. The songs are a true testament to Caldwell's powerful , stirring vocals, and his masterful storytelling.


Kate Yahn is an up and coming singer from Vancouver, BC. Her essence is unassuming and powerful, with a voice that is way before her time. With her first initial training being Musical Theater, Yahn brings a dynamic blend of musical genres ranging from soul to country, and rock’n roll to pop. She is a young woman so connected to her idols; Linda Ronstadt, Stevie Nicks, Carole King, and Debbie Harry, to name a few. Her inspirations run deep and meaningful like the songs she sings.

Bungalow is Vancouver’s hottest rhythm section. With influences ranging from classic 60’s and 70’s soul to the more modern sounds of D’Angelo and Vulfpeck, Bungalow’s catchy riffs and timeless grooves are guaranteed to keep you movin’ on the dance floor. Alvin Brendan on guitar, Benjamin Millman on keys, Yamil Chain-Haddad on Bass and Trent Otter on drums.


Cassidy Waring has spun her relatable challenges into dreamy americana tunes that invite listeners deep inside with uncompromising honesty, razor-sharp wit, and vivid remembrance. Cassidy’s vulnerability on stage is an integral part of her live performance. She speaks candidly about her personal experiences with mental health, therapy, loss, and complex relationship dynamics. She reminds us that we aren’t alone in our struggles.


"Elliott Slinn was named New Westminster’s fifth (and youngest) Poet Laureate in June 2021, actively beginning his tenure in August. His work has been described as immediate and accessible, as he explores the existential events of our day-to-day existence. His goal is to break the barriers surrounding poetry, and to bridge the gap from heart to heart."

At Our Events - Perched atop a high table with his 1929 typewriter, Elliott spends the evening crafting stunning poetry, by donation, for our audience members. All you have do is approach him, give him a word or a short story and he'll produce the most magical piece of personalized poetry for you.
