Housewife – Housewife is Brighid Fry (she/her) and Pascale Padilla (they/she), two queer Toronto-based songwriters who are only just getting started at 19 and 20 years old. They released “Patrick Bateman” in May. #housewife_band

King of Foxes – King of Foxes is the stage name of indie-alternative artist, Olivia Street. Delivered in a voice equal parts fierce and fragile, Street’s lyrics are poetic and evocative, deftly interwoven with seeing-eye hooks and a cogent understanding of songcraft. Think HAIM meets Waxahatchee with a touch of Liz Phair. Since launching King of Foxes, she has independently released two critically acclaimed albums. #kingoffoxesband

Neon Bloom – Neon Bloom’s Jen Simpson [vocals], Fred Yurichuk [bass], Simon Chow [guitar/keys], and Chris Romano [drums]. They released the Still Life EP, and their latest single is “A Bullet In Tomorrow.” #neonbloommusic

Velours – velours is an alt. pop singer/songwriter full of emotion, carried by a velvet voice. Her desire to explore feeling through music, while not taking things too seriously, resonates with her audience. She released her first EP Identity September 2020. #veloursartist
