About Steve Marriner

Simply put, it is nothing short of astounding that this Ottawa-raised, Toronto-based musician has driven, guided and participated in so many impressive and acclaimed recording and live performance projects. The multi-instrumentalist, song writing singer sits at, or near the top of the list, as “Canada’s hardest working person in show biz.”

MonkeyJunk, has been a fan and critics favorite since the trio first roared down the track some 13 years ago. The blues-basted trio with whom he sings, writes, and plays ferocious harp, has released six albums. The group has won an impressive number of Juno Awards, and Maple Blues Awards in numerous categories. There’s nothing to suggest that train isn’t going to keep rolling down the track for some time to come.

All of this activity and the response to Marriner’s talents combine for the release of his new solo album Hope Dies Last, which he considers to be yet another unique stand-alone departure in his creative journey.

About Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar · Toronto, ON

Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar elected to use the pandemic pause to record, mix and master their latest powerful, funky and deeply soulful The Reckless One. Singer, arranger and band leader Martin’s lyrics, set to intoxicating, ear worm melodies often focus on the vicissitudes of love: desire, disappointment and when everything works out, emotional and sexual satisfaction. There are gospel infused soul ballads, funk-inflected tracks, stomping four-on-the-floor dance numbers and some straight from the Wall of Sound influenced tune. Martin’s powerhouse vocals and emotionally wrought material are brought to life with the 10-piece Delta Sugar: magical co-vocalists and a full rhythm section, piano, organ, soulful horn section and strings. Expect a torrid force of nature that takes audiences to emotional peaks while leaving them floored with pin-you-against-the-wall power.
