Evan Freemanis a Calgary-based musician, singer and songwriter. Evan's music evokes vast landscapes: prairie thunderstorms, soaring glacial peaks and post-apocalyptic skylines. His debut Luna wraps post-rock and shoegaze production around dreamy pop hooks, evoking Radiohead, Beach House, Sigur Rós and Ride. Luna was described in the Calgary Herald as "a masterfully sculpted piece of pop-informed shoegazing wonderment" and was listed on the CBC Key of A's top ten albums of 2016. In live performance, Evan has toured across Canada, including performances at the Calgary Folk Music Festival, Smithers Midsumm...er Festival, the West End Cultural Centre in Winnipeg, 3030 Dundas in Toronto and Quai des Brumes in Montreal. Evan is currently recording his second album, anticipated in 2019.
Zulu Panda is folksy charm and raw passion, delivered with an outstanding live presence. Hailing from Vancouver BC, this indie-rock singer-songwriter performed in every province and territory to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Canada in 2017. His music combines heartland rock with grunge while maintaining a pop sensibility. His dynamic sound is matched nicely with warm melodies and Dylanesque storytelling. He is a troubadour of sound, stage and beard. He will be touring Canada from April to August of 2018.
Natalie Inga hails from the hills of Western Canada. Her nomad upbringing shaped the way she views the world, the way she plays, loves, writes and sings. From the old train tracks cutting across the prairie, to the coal seams that brought civilization to the badlands, to the tops of the Rocky Mountains, her soul is in the land, while her feet pound the city pavement. Natalie was an Acting major, studying in the immersive conservatory program at Rosebud School of the Arts in the tiny hamlet of Rosebud, AB. She cut her first solo album in 2013 before joining forces with Sonia Deleo and becoming half of Calgary duo, The Fig & The Flame in 2015. Their album, When the World is Calling, was released in 2017. Natalie's song, Hundred Lips, earned the duo a spot in the regional finals of the CBC Searchlight Competition 2017. In 2018, Natalie is focussing her efforts again as a solo artist and writer, in the rich community her current home, Calgary, AB has to offer
