More about the artists:
Nova Scotia native and East Coast Music Award winner, Erin Costelo has the voice of a soul singer, the soul of a gospel singer, and her songwriting style has been described "as if it her songs were written by your heroes". Her 2012 release "We Can Get Over" has been described as a modern soul masterpiece.
Her new album "Down Below, the Status Quo" (2016) has received rave reviews throughout Canada and Europe as well as 8 Nova Scotia Music Award nominations. It has been described as "touched by the angel Donny Hathaway" and embodying "the spirit of Nina Simone".
Norma MacDonald’s voice holds sublime contradictions—it’s fluid but piercing, self-assured but full of yearning. Her fourth solo album, Burn the Tapes, is just as complex: her incisive lyrics exploring old stories and fresh heartbreaks with startling acuity, all woven into a warm and bright country-folk album. In addition to glowing reviews in Canada, the US, and the UK, Burn the Tapes was nominated by Music Nova Scotia as Americana/Bluegrass Recording of the Year in 2015. Norma likes Gram Parsons records, David Lynch movies, talking to strangers, and swimming in the ocean.
Kim Harris’ oceanic voice is vast, and ever changing. She emits rich colours, and textures with her full-length debut album, Only The Mighty, a shoreline of metallic moods and airy effervescence. Inspired by love, darkness, and particles of light, Only The Mighty is a testament to resilience.
