Call it prairie noir, or Canadiana desert rock: Abigail Lapell sings haunting, gorgeous modern folk songs, mapping epic natural landscapes and deeply intimate, personal territory. The Toronto vocalist, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist has released three acclaimed solo albums. Hide Nor Hair, her Chris Stringer-produced sophomore LP, won a Canadian Folk Music Award for Contemporary Album of the Year in 2017. Since then, Lapell has been on the road, touring across Canada, the U.S. and Europe, and playing at festivals like Pop Montreal, Mariposa, In The Dead Of Winter, Tiny Lights and Folk On The Rocks. Getaway, , Lapells ambitious third release came out in 2019.
Born in New York, raised in Toronto, and now residing in Hamilton since 2015, critically acclaimed folk/roots singer, songwriter and social activist Piper Hayes is truly authentic. On December 8, 2017, Hayes released her debut full-length album Piper & Carson.
Nowadays, Hayes (who is a two-time nominee for the Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award, 2017 and 2018) performs and writes closely with her partner Carson Ritcey-Thorpe and, after a 2017 western Canada tour, many prime showcases at Folk Music Ontario, Folk Alliance International and South East Regional Folk Alliance (SERFA), they have become beloved darlings of the folk music scene.
the new collaboration retains strains of Hayes core musical shades from her previous work but this time out focuses on the roots and folk to let songs shine in all their rustic glory. Ric Taylor, VIEW Magazine cover story, December 7, 2017.
BENJAMIN DAKOTA ROGERS
Benjamin Dakota Rogers makes his highly anticipated return to the folk world with his brand new single, Better by Now, stripping the genre down to its core and emotionally charging it with the raw human experience that can only be delivered
from the honesty and grit of a farm boys hands. Hailing from the countryside of rural Ontario, Benjamin funnels his penchant for starry nights and nostalgia into his stylized folk sound, reaching far beyond to include influences of roots, blues,
and country music.
Benjamin found a passion and purpose in folk music after inheriting his Great-Grandfathers violin at the tender age of seven. From budding musician to awe-inspiring performer, his love of creating meaningful music has taken the reins and
garnered much attention from folk artists and enthusiasts alike. Rogers unique voice,thought-provoking lyrics, energetic performances and dynamic fiddle techniques leave this up-and-coming musician in a class of his own. InSpades Magazine.
