Dorothea Paas -- Toronto 

Dorothea creates songs with contemplative lyrics and undone instrumentations that never stand still. The lilt in her vocal tone is comforting and familiar, reminiscent of young Joni Mitchell,
while her songwriting and arrangement take an exploratory approach to rock and folk sounds. Her intricate, thoughtful and heavy songs explore relationships, anxiety, the body and beyond. The band has existed in multiple iterations since 2011. Since the start of this year, Dorothea, drummer Mark Streeter (Try Harder) and newly-added members Kritty Uranowski (Patti Cake) and Paul Saulnier (PS I Love You) have been focusing on writing and arranging new material, honing in on tighter and more nuanced arrangements.
Dorothea Paas est une guitariste et une vocaliste, qui a commencé à faire de la musique dans la scène DIY post-punk à Kingston, Ontario. Elle crée des morceaux aux paroles contemplatives et aux instrumentations inachevées qui ne restent jamais tranquilles. Son groupe a existé sous des formes multiples depuis 2011 et inclut désormais Mark Streeter (Try Harder), Kritty Uranowski (Patti Cake) et Paul Saulnier (PS I Love You). 

Un Blonde -- Montreal

Un Blonde is the solo project of Montreal-based musician, producer, and composer Jean-Sebastian Audet. Over the course of a steady stream of self-produced albums and EPs, he has laid down the framework for a constantly mutating series of musical environments, which forge brilliant connections between hints of contemporary r&b, cubist avant-funk, low-key soul, indie pop, and confessional songwriting. This heady mixture spilled over into 2016's Good Will Come To You, a brilliant, 21-song widescreen presentation of Audet's concepts, which landed him a spot on the Long List for that year's Polaris Music Prize and bolstered his growing reputation as one of the most original interesting and exciting new artists to emerge on the Canadian music scene. Of the material on that record, major music site The Fader opined that “Jean-Sebastian Audet's layered vocal harmonies are transcendent … they seem to guide him from an apartment and into the streets of Montreal, where he finds his own rhythm in the music, as he has always done.
Un Blonde est le projet solo du musicien, producteur et compositeur montréalais Jean-Sebastian Audet. Dans un flot régulier d’albums et d’EPs auto-produits, il crée de brillantes connexions entre le r&b contemporain, l’avant-funk cubiste, la soul low-key, l’indie pop et l’écriture de chansons confessionnelles.
