El Niven
http://www.elniven.com/


When Elliot Niven was 15, he crashed his parents’ car through a fence and into a neighbour’s tree. 

These days, he’s more likely to drive his acoustic folk-rock through your speakers and into your soul. As part of Edmonton duo El Niven & The Alibi, the singer/guitarist delivers rugged and restless tunes about liquor, love and lone wolves — fuelled by intoxicating blasts of twang, melody and honesty.  

“It’s kind of like therapy for us,” says Niven. “If I’m not happy about something, I’ll put it in a song.” 

Drummer Jeff Burwash is the other half of El Niven & The Alibi. The two started writing tunes and playing stripped-down yet raucous sets after putting the brakes on their previous project, Stone Iris, a reggae-turned-rock outfit, in 2016...

Dylan Farrell
https://www.dylanfarrell.ca/



Dylan Farrell is a born guitarist whose playing displays a level emotional maturity and a technical depth and dexterity that is truly remarkable for someone only in his mid-twenties. Originally from Minto, New Brunswick, and began his professional career playing in his father’s band in Saint John at the age of 15. Upon moving to Edmonton in 2012, he almost instantly became a fixture in the city’s thriving roots and blues scene, lending his consummate skill as a sideman to several acts, and hosting a weekly blues jam at the Have Mercy Southern Table and Bar.

Having solidified a sterling reputation through these side projects, Dylan is now placing his focus on his own musical voice. With his band, the Dylan Farrell Band, he is a two-time winner of the Memphis Bound Blues Challenge, and semi finalist at the 2018 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. While in Memphis, Dylan recorded his debut LP with producer Brian Moncarz at Ardent Studios, which has been graced by the likes of James Taylor, ZZ Top, and BB King and is set to be released Fall 2018.

David Unsworth

David Unsworth is a 20-year-old singer-songwriter based out of Edmonton, Alberta. He combines intricate lyricism with rhythmic guitar, soaring vocals and a loop station to create personal, thought provoking songs, while still giving listeners a reason to dance. 

David's musical journey began in choral music. From a young age David sang in a number of children's and youth choirs, slowly gaining an appreciation for choral music, while simultaneously marvelling in more contemporary artists of the late 20th century like Queen and Midnight Oil.  After several years of guitar lessons David turned his attention to composition, and began writing songs in 2013. Soon David started playing at open mics and busking at local farmers markets, learning to use a loop pedal in live situations to create a full band sound with just vocals and a guitar. As his performances began to develop their own style, so did David's songwriting, taking and blending Alternative Rock with Folk and Pop music. 

David's debut EP: Wait was recorded and released in early 2015 and has been played on local radio stations CKUA and CJSR. Currently David is busking, gigging and going to open mics around Edmonton, as well as working on his Bachelor's in Jazz and Contemporary Music at Macewan University.

Some of David's recent shows include playing Arcadia Bar, providing music for the Dance Moves Fundraiser at City Hall, and featuring on the improv comedy show "Hey, Ladies" at The Roxy. 

David is constantly growing as a musician and is excited to have released some of his original material in April 2015. Stay posted for updates on performances.
