Josh Taerk is a Billboard charting singer/songwriter who’s been touring throughout North America and the U.K. Some of his more notable performances include: a headline show at the El Mocambo, two headline university tours throughout the U.K., and three key support theatre tours throughout England, Scotland, and Wales. Over the past 12 years, Josh has also opened for and performed onstage with Max Weinberg (Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band), Kevin Costner & Modern West, Jon McLaughlin, Robin Trower, and The Weeks. Max Weinberg called Josh, “the most exciting new talent I have come across in years”. Josh’s album Beautiful Tragedy has been streamed over 200,000 times on Spotify and the title track was added onto over 100 radio stations across the U.K. His music has been praised and featured in AXS, Paste Magazine, Classic Rock Magazine, No Depression, and Fireworks Magazine. John Oates (Hall and Oates, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee) also recorded background vocals on two songs from Josh’s second album Here’s To Change. Josh is currently working on new music with Los Angeles based producer David Kershenbaum (who has also produced Duran Duran, Tracy Chapman, Bryan Adams, Supertramp, and Cat Stevens).



Velvet-voiced Lauren Carson and her Toronto-based band have a simple goal: to make the regular moments special. Described as a "sunrise" by Soundcheck Entertainment, cozy up to her unmistakable aura and feel nostalgic for things you’ve never even known. Bandmates Emma, Thomas, and Omar create an intricate, dreamy backdrop for her honest odes to loneliness and strength. Lauren is currently promoting her debut EP "Earl St." at venues across Ontario.
