Alexia Avina ( Best Fern) is a Montreal-based artist whose influence is rooted in ambient, folk, and dreampop traditions. Through the use of increasingly minimal, arrhythmic and tempo-based looping as well as ethereal melodic hooks, she balances between spaciousness and restraint. Her debut album Betting on an Island was released in February 2018 on Never Content.
Guthrie Galileo is a northern California-based composer of a unique brand of alternative R&B music that is derived from an eclectic blend of influences and a desire to express the realities of human experience—the good, the bad, and always, the most sincere. He has performed in various sections of the West and East coast of the United States, and has traveled independently well beyond national borders, always listening and learning from the cross-cultural relationships built with people and places, along the way, and manifesting them within his art. His second full-length LP, The Ifandbut, available on Bandcamp, was appropriately called "an ideal soundtrack for late-night dreaming and melancholic brooding" (Liz Cantrell, SevendaysVT).
Bambi Lou is the songwriting project of Montreal-based singer and keyboardist Geneva Gleason.
“Call Waiting,” Bambi Lou’s debut single (recorded & mixed by Kate Cooper of An Horse), is a dream-pop slow jam that is both confessional and unapologetically emotional. It received praise from the likes of DIY Magazine, Earmilk, Sidewalk Hustle, and IX Daily, as well as radio play on Beats 1, CKUT, n10.as and CJLO.
