Laura Hickli (Mohkínstsis/Calgary) is an internationally touring art pop songstress known for her dreamy, tightly-arranged soundscapes, exquisite vocals, evocative lyrics and her emotionally powerful performances. A classically trained pianist and member in several award-winning musical projects including Carla J. Easton and 36?, Hicklis latest material has struck a spellbinding balance of spectral intimacy and bombast explosivity.
Hickli just released her heavy-hitting second album Both Feet In The World, At Least I Can Stand through North Pole Records (MT) on October 7, 2022. Exploring her departure from religion, this somber and experimental record features songs which she recorded at The Banff Centre For Arts and Creativity during her 2018 BMiR residency and is co-produced by her partner Taylor Cochrane (36?).
Described as indomitable, Laura Hickli will shatter any expectations of the way a piano should be played, a voice should be lifted, or a life should be lived.
Steph Love is a multidisciplinary artist based in Calgary, Alberta. Her art style is eclectic, colourful and abstract with a focus on nature and psychedelic themes. Co-owner of Good Friend Tattoo and a freelance painter, she often works in collaboration with clients to create commission based pieces as well as creating original tattoos, ink and pencil drawings, acrylic and watercolour paintings, murals and digital art.
Hermitess is the project of an aging and slightly reclusive witch, dreaming simultaneously in music and images. Sonically, layered orchestral textures, harmonic voices, and pedal driven magic, all conjuring a fleeting fever dream.
Bennett Mitchell is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. Exploring love, confusion and an endless catalogue of musical fashions, Bennett builds prairie-infused grooves, big-valley soundscapes, and blooming harmonies. He records in isolation on his family ranch (Flintrock Ranch) utilizing specific spaces and rooms to capture the deep familial history lurking in the corners. He then introduces his team of some of the most becoming artists in Calgary and beyond to add their personal flavours to the colourful medley that is Bennett Mitchell.
