Born on the Six Nations Reserve and raised in the small town of Brantford, Ontario, Logan Staats started writing and performing music in his early teens and would later go on to become an accomplished multi-nominated and award winning artist. Armed with his guitar and harmonica, he has transitioned from running the weekend bar circuit to playing sold out venues and events at places like his favourite venue The Sanderson Centre in his hometown. His performances are animated by a level of self-possession, sadness and joy created by an aura of inevitability that surrounds the emergence of such artists. Now reunited with Victor Martisius, an award-winning guitarist, producer, former band mate from Ghost Town Orchestra and his best friend, Logan is on a warpath hell bent on raising the bar for indigenous/mainstream crossover music.

In a world where the sum of our lives is defined through another’s gaze, genuinely unchained artists like Winnipeg-bred Hamilton-based Iskwé (pronounced iss-kway) are a rare breed. Named one of the ‘Top 10 Artists to Watch’ by CBC Music, Iskwé’s (‘woman’ in Cree) unmistakable sound weaves her Irish and Cree/Dené/Métis roots with poignant politically charged lyrics, dark soulful R&B rhythms, electronic flourishes, and trip hop breakbeats.
Unafraid to challenge the convictions of her detractors by honouring her heritage, standing steadfast in her viewpoints, Iskwé’s artistry knows no bounds. Blending soulful, breathlessly delivered lyrics coloured by the many shades of human nature with a sonic palette that takes its cue from the shadowy atmospherics of the 1990s Bristol sound, Iskwé’s music revels in her strength of self and that is her true rallying cry. Iskwé’s sophomore album ‘The Fight Within’ will be released Fall 2017.
