Clara Engel

Clara Engel is a prolific songwriter and arrestingly original performer, currently based in Montreal. She has independently released seven albums, and has collaborated with musicians and artists from the UK, Brazil, Germany, USA, and Canada. British poet and novelist Jeremy Reed writes, “Clara Engel’s voice comes to me from that deepest of all places, imaginative space, from which she visually retrieves an inner landscape converted by breath into the rock equivalent of poetry. Rarely has a voice sounded so authoritative, so unapologetic in its disclosures, so sure of its direction in going home into song.”

Maybe the Welders

Maybe the Welders are a 4 piece Brooklyn based rock band. They released their debut recording, the Hot Shot EP, in 2010. Two guitars, two lead voacalists and a rock solid rhythm section give meat to the bones of the catchy post-punk songs that the band writes and performs. The band have been compared favorably to Talking Heads, the Clash and Blur but have mangaed to carve their own sound from the rich history of rock’n'roll. They have toured throughout the North East U.S. and also in Brazil where they appeared on local radio in Rio de Janeiro and in the local press. This is the bands first time to perform in Canada and they are honored to be here!

Ralf Wiggum

We’re sorry, this page is not yet available in English.

Ralf Wiggum, groupe originaire de St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu mais établi à Montréal, propose un rock rempli de moments épiques, de finesse et de gros riffs sales, le tout appuyé par des textes souvent torturés qui évoquent un certain désarroi. Malgré tout, l’interprétation reste un brin naïve, jamais totalement lourde.
