Mike Biggar
Mike’s style is equal parts gutsy and joyful; a warm, bourbon-esque cocktail of soulful, modern roots & blues, a tonic to any listener thirsty for song writing authenticity and raw, honest performance, perfectly paired with infectious melodies and mingled with his warm, disarming humour.
Biggar has been honoured with numerous regional awards in his 10-plus years career from both the East Coast Music Association and Music New Brunswick, including:
>> ‘Blues Album of the Year’,
>> ‘Inspirational Album of the Year’ and more.
New music plans for 2024 are underway with new singles in development and the award-winning Chris Kirby (Matt Andersen, Quote the Raven) of Halifax Nova Scotia at the producer’s helm. Kirby and Biggar have seized on a strong vision and called into action a true A-list of Canadian studio talent, with a keen focus on their shared conviction to deliver Biggar’s most soulful, authentic recordings to date, including co-writes with Canadian blues gems such as Maple Blues Award winners Suzie Vinnick and Charlie A’Court.
Laura Rae
Bilingual singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and educator Laura Rae dances between languages ​​and genres, influenced equally by soulful Norah Jones as rock legend Sheryl Crow. Since releasing her first single, Laura has been nominated for Music Nova Scotia’s New Artist Recording of the Year 2022, Prix de l’Acadie 2023, and has taken home bronze for Halifax The Coast Best Folk Artist 2022.
Jon Cornwall
Jon has played all over the maritimes as a duo, and as a full Jam Band, he traveled much of Canada and through some of the US. More recently and either solo or with his current roster of musicians which includes DJ Timmons (Arlibido), Aran Hill (Dwight D’Eon/Never), Neil MacQuarrie (High Plains Drifter, Aaron MacDonald Band), and Seth Fraser
Jon has his second album, ‘Faster These Days’ and in addition to performing his own solo shows here and there, Jon has been invited to open shows for Ron Sexsmith, Jimmy Rankin, Lennie Gallant, Steve Poltz, JP Cormier, Kim Stockwood, Dave Gunning and more.
Of a NXNE showcase at the Rivoli, in Toronto….”It’s not often you find an act that makes the crowd stop and listen for the entire time”…”A great act to catch”…”The music was powerful enough to hold everyone’s attention for the entire set” -Rob Kingston, Chart Attack, at NXNE.
“Cornwall was awesome. Heart-drenched tunes and a great knack for the guitar…. very clever with a clean and sweet voice. Look out for him!”
