DJ Jas Nasty 

Jas Nasty loves dirty beats. Driven by heavy bass, you can expect to get down when she drops the best of UK Garage, 2-step, grime, dubstep, bassline, techno, house, reggae, retro & beyond.

Elizabeth Riley Band
Traditional folk and bluegrass, old-time Nashville greats, gypsy jazz, 60s, 70s and 80s pop, modern Canadian and American scene, love, loss, life… sunshine. 

Dynamite Hotel
Dynamite Motel is an anagram for Mindy Amelotte, one of the newest members of the Ottawa music scene. Mindy has been playing guitar and piano (and more recently the ukulele!) for over 10 years. She is mixing jazz and R&B together with a heavy sprinkle of old-school blues combined with a sweet sultry voice to create a style that is uniquely her own.

Erin Adair
Erin Adair is a diverse composer, vocalist, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based out of Ottawa, Ontario. Erin sings frankly and humorously about her experiences with alcoholism, mental health issues and sexual assault, in an effort to remove the stigmas that are associated with these issues. She comes from the tradition of topical songwriting, so she writes about current social justice issues, environmental justice issues, sex positivity, workers rights, and more.

The Gallop
Ottawa’s The Gallop resounds with a triumphant, toe-tapping togetherness. What started off as a recording project between two friends has steadily evolved and transformed over the past five years, ultimately taking the shape of a five-piece indie rock band. Through performances described as memorable and captivating, The Gallop offers audiences a combination of honest lyrics, ringing harmonies and banging rhythms. They draw from personal experiences and the not-so-personal generational unease to create catchy and relatable songs for us all to sing along to.
