Ellen Torrie

Ellen is a recent graduate from Acadia University’s Music Therapy program, but grew up in Cobourg. An outstanding classical vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Ellen is releasing new music in a couple short weeks. Her collaborative album “Like Coming Home” will be released on May 12 and will be available on Apple Music, Spotify, and all the other places you usually find your music. A review of the album states, “impeccable production, an award winning band for support and harmonies to warm your heart. Yes, it’s one of those musical experiences that every human being deserves”.

Delilah RushCale Crowe

“Coming to the world from the hills of Alderville First Nation in Ontario, Canada, Cale was fuelled by music since he could tie his shoes and has been taking audiences on a turbulent journey since he first picked up a guitar at 13. Cale himself describes the songs that make up “Stars & Promises”, his debut EP, and the sophomore EP “Til You Let Me Go”, as different stages of his own life, each telling a different chapter of the same story.

Aside from the record, Cale’s unique performances uses little more than an acoustic guitar and a few effects pedals and has given him the opportunity to perform across central and southern Ontario alongside acts like Ron Sexsmith, Scott Helman, Gentlemen Husbands, Jimmy Bowskill, SarahMark,2016 SOCAN Songwriting Prize Winners Fast
Romantics, and countless others.”

When it began, Cale’s journey into music was an escape from the trials and tribulations of a socially awkward teenager. Now it’s a chance to connect with like-minded people worldwide and share his experiences through the power of an acoustic guitar and a loop station.

 Sometimes you have to stand as one in order to reach the many.”
