Root Dwellers Music Showcase is a grassroots, community based monthly event that provides an important and intimate platform to Vancouver music artists, both bands and solo artists. We offer a distraction-free listening room where the audience can relax in a cosy performance space and be captivated and drawn into the artists creative realm with a miniature interview that takes place before each performance commences.

Our listening room at Kings Cafe in East Vancouver offers a mighty fine selection of craft beer, BC wine, artisan tea, boozy and non-boozy coffees, delicious eats and a neverending supply of music community building love.

IVAN HARTLE

Ivan Hartle was born and raised in Vancouver B.C. His influences and style have been shaped by an upbringing surrounded by music as well as his time playing college baseball in the southern United States. His music elicits vintage vibes and floats between the blues, soul, and folk genres. Characterized by his strong vocals, Ivan’s talents are also evident in his guitar playing and percussion accompaniment.
Ivan's been establishing his presence and following in the Vancouver music scene with gigs at many venues around the city (The Railway, The Belmont, Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza,The Anza Club, among others). He was selected to perform at the Anza Live community showcase event in late 2017, the Vancity Feature/Vancity Studio artist showcase event in September of 2018, and Live Acts Canada Best in Vancouver Competition in the fall of 2018. Ivan is scheduled to release his debut single "You Got Me" off his forthcoming EP in early 2019.

SAM BALSON

Originally hailing from the small town of Bowmanville, Ontario, Sam's style of folk ebbs and flows with freshly exposed heart and soul. With a single guitar and his voice, he sings songs of love lost and found, friends, family, growing old and much more. He has since brought his music to the West Coast, and is now residing in Vancouver where his music is setting a new standard for singer/songwriters everywhere.

SLEEPY GONZALES

We are an independent original four-piece band from Surrey, BC. All of us are from Surrey, British Columbia. Cristian and Beni are twins and grew up playing music and writing songs together. Cristian and Beni met Allyson in high school. A commanding stage presence Allyson has developed an extensive range in her voice allowing her to sing sad and soothing melodies as well as powerful and haunting in your face vocals. Allyson has always been the balance on the scale between the twins. Nick comes from a punk background and brings an edge to the band dynamic. We love to play live and have an energetic raw performance style. We have released one full-length album, two EP’s, one single and 5 videos. We practice music every day and everything we do as a band is about the music. It is not about who plays or sings which part it is about what best serves the music. We understand that if we write and play good songs we can build a following of loyal fans. We are 100 percent committed to our music and we work on it every day. We have no plans to be anything else but musicians.
