Elliot C Way is a seeker, a dreamer and a searcher for the truth. His obsession with music is all consuming and it bleeds into every aspect of his life. His songs are life lessons learned the hard way and he has fought for every single word. His gritty and soulful voice is raw and deep with emotion and can shake you to the core. When he sings we listen, for here is a man who has lived many lives and is bearing the weight of it all. Nothing is withheld, he has and always will wear his heart on his sleeve. 

Way has always been honest in his songs, and with this new chapter has taken his dedication to truth to a new height. In the delivery of his songs this can be heard as clear as day and as loud as thunder crashing. In late 2019 right before the world stopped, Way and his dream team spent a week recording in his then home Old Man Mountain, a little shack on a hill in the farm country of his home town of Langley BC. The band and a few friends spent days and nights sculpting this old but fresh batch of personal folk songs into cosmic funky country grooves that help tell the stories as much as the words do. All I Know his debut album is set to be released in the spring of 2023 and is sure to be a classic in the modern folk and country genre. Over the last couple years since the world reopened, Way has founded his own independent record label The North Country Collective supporting other artists in the music community, has taken his one man show of truth and grit on the road sharing his songs and stories all over the land. Way's name is known across BC and the prairies, he has even spread his wings and flown all the way south to Nashville Tennessee to play his first American showcase. He has been busy and is on a roll but this is only the beginning. There’s no looking back for a man with such conviction and ambitions.   In every song there is a little bit of Townes, Waylon, Kristofferson, Dylan, and Springsteen. It's a heavy dose trip and Elliot is in it for the long haul. There’s nothing separating Elliot from his music and his dreams but the everyday struggles to stay afloat in this sinking world. In these often confusing days, Way is a lighthouse, a beacon of light illuminating a way back to a simpler time. Elliot is known around his town as the Vibe King; Boogie Vans, his wolf dog (Emmylou)  and vintage clothing make up his persona, but to truly know the man you must know his music and his songs for this is where he lays it all on the line.


If an imaginary space exists somewhere between Austin, Bakersfield, and his hometown of Vancouver, Bob Sumner found it with Wasted Love Songs. Released in 2019, Sumner’s debut solo album established the singer-songwriter as an insurgent new voice in “Canadiana”, with a literary bent augmenting his gift for the ancient American art of melancholy set to weeping guitar and an implacable backbeat.

Opener “Riverbed” established the moonlit ambience of that critically-acclaimed debut, passed down from Townes Van Zandt and on through Haggard, Nelson, and the rest of their sensitive tough guy brethren. When the band raised the volume on swooning love ballad “Rosalee”, or bore down on the Crazy Horse crunch of “My Old Friend”, Sumner’s unfussy voice never rose above its introspective register. It was a pcrent mix, gutting in its intimacy, and the accolades came fast.
“First class Americana,” said No Depression. “Pure gold,” opined the Georgia Straight. “Has the heft and heart of an instant classic,” declared Broadway World.


Vancouver based country / bluegrass music. You can call it cow-punk, farm rock, barn burner, but we just like to call it a good time! Fast bluegrass picking and a high lonesome sound will surely kick up some dust at a dance floor near you.


“The wind blowing in through his window comes from a slower world where words are carefully chosen and simple melodies are given plenty of room to breathe.  Like water dripping off an old cedar frond, one drop at a time to form a pond that eventually joins a river, the songs on Ben’s record never forcefully raise a ruckus, nor do they ever pull back from their course.  If his other band, the Real Ponchos’ records owe something to the spirit of the Grateful Dead and early seventies cowboy jam bands, Ben’s solo music eschews the improvised musical excursions that define their sound to focus on the simple pleasure of performing really good songs in a heart-felt manner.” 
- from the review of “Ben Arsenault” by Douglas Heselgrave for Restless and Real - words and sounds from a shrinking world


Chaya Harvey is a one of a kind songwriter who harnesses ethereal vocals and sparse instrumentation to build a world of transcendent, melancholic beauty.
Chaya's songs are draped in the traditions of folk and early country music, with glimmers of the English folk revival period. Crooning dreamy melodies, and unadorned lyrics, Chaya's distinct voice breathes new life into old music.

Being raised in the sunny shore lines of White Rock, British Columbia,
Chaya fell in love with learning guitar. Being a mixed race woman of proud Jamaican descent, Harvey credits her families impressive musical lineage for the soul and natural rhythm that found home in the otherwise solemn sounds of folk music.

With her stripped down debut EP "Born in Spring" released in June of 2021, Chaya Harvey has quickly gained recognition and is a rare new gem to grace the local live music scene.
