About Mariel Buckley · Calgary, AB

Doubling down on grit and authenticity, Mariel Buckley has planted her flag firmly as a songwriter who’s in it for the long haul. The glow of mainstream music holds no appeal for this neo-noir highway star, and she makes no apologies for her stark candour and delivery. As one of Canada’s busiest touring acts, she continues to charm new listeners with her sharp perspective and tender melodies and shows no signs of slowing.

After the release of her critically acclaimed sophomore album, Driving In The Dark (2018), Buckley saw a notable shift in momentum, and its steady incline has continued even throughout the bizarre pandemic. With no shortage of official showcase slots and past tours as support for Sarah Shook & the Disarmers, The Deep Dark Woods and k.d. Lang, she finds her listenership expansive and dedicated while her intrigue grows across international borders in anticipation of her follow-up album.

This album looks to turn country fans on their heels and scoop up the dedicated indie subculture only a synthesizer away. By respecting the tradition of storytelling through song and the intimacy therein, Buckley and Paquin are poised to deliver on something entirely fresh and experimental, both pushing Buckley’s personal artistic boundaries and genre confines simultaneously. With no allegiance to her classic country roots and indifferent to the pop-country craze, Mariel Buckley finds herself continuing to make waves from the fringes and exactly where she belongs — making music for the outsiders, dreamers and underdogs.

About Frazey Ford · Vancouver, BC

Singer/songwriter Frazey Ford first came to the world’s attention in acclaimed folk trio The Be Good Tanyas. In her early life, she sang with her Irish/Cajun/Acadian mother despite a true leaning towards soul and funk. There was time spent living on a ​commune with American draft dodger parents and a collaboration with the ​legendary Memphis soul band The Hi Rhythm Section.

So it’s unsurprising Ford’s world is one of shapeshifting rhythm, elevating beats and grooves, wrapped in the subtle magnetism of her mesmerizing voice. With its graceful collision of soul and psychedelia and’70s funk, her music can be ecstatic and heavy-hearted, gloriously shambolic and deeply purifying. Her latest album UkinBtheSun ​is raw and direct; a departure from her earlier guitar-driven and often solitary songwriting. The album was birthed from a spontaneous collaboration with her ​long-time bassist and drummers.

Sublime sounds unfold in luminous grooves, dreamy piano tones, smoldering harmonies, cascading piano lines, fluid guitar work and warm and wise lyrics. Bold, sensual and confidently fragile, Ford is obviously not afraid to explore what lurks inside her, either musically or emotionally. Rich textures embed Ford’s lyrical storytelling: sharply rendered memories of early childhood, poignant messages of courage and survival, telegraphs to unfettered joy, a tenderly enchanted breakup song and an anthemic response to the toxic political climate.
