Malika Tirolien, Sing/Songwriter/Producer

Malika TirolienMalika Tirolien was raised in an artistic environment – Her grandfather inspired her with poems, her grandmother was a pianist, and her father was a self taught multi-instrumentalist. This background shaped her will to become an artist, and she began singing as a teenager.

Leaving her home in Guadeloupe for the University of Montreal, Malika studied jazz and quickly became a part of the Montreal scene as part of the Kalmunity Jazz project, The Kalmunity Vibe Collective, and the Hip-Hop fused soul group Groundfood. An impressive stage performer, Malika took the lead in Cirque Du Soleil’s La Nouba and has appeared with respected artists Lara Fabian and Alain Jean-Marie. Her performance caught the eyes and ears of Michael League of Snarky Puppy and she was invited to perform as one of eight vocalists on the Grammy winning release Snarky Puppy’s Family Dinner. Her performance closes the now legendary album with her powerful song “I’m Not The One“.

Her stage presence, her precise and soulful delivery, her attitude, and her strength absolutely captivate the audience. She has defended her latest album, Sur La Voie Ensoleillée (‘On the High Road’), through unforgettable shows from around the globe (China, India, USA, Brazil, French West Indies, Canada, And more). Her songs speak of a positive, enlightened, and determined worldview. to urban Montreal’s take on Hip-Hop. But it’s not enough for this indefatigable explorer!

Two thousand and seventeen announces the release of the project “Bokanté“, produced by Michael League from Snarky Puppy and in which Malika wrote and sings all the Lyrics!

Chloe Dolores Canadian Musician

Chloe DoloresUpon moving to Toronto at age 18, Chloë began frequenting open mics with her grandfather’s old telecaster and a collection of lighthearted pop songs that she had written in high school.

Before long she had formed a four piece band called Dreamboat and was playing shows at little bars on the west side of Toronto. Over time she gained confidence as a band leader, and her songwriting style morphed as she experimented with different genres.

Life experience goes a long way in the development of any artist. In Chloë’s case, nothing has influenced her work more than her recent backpacking trip through Asia. She returned to home soil teeming with inspiration and an unbridled sense of freedom to explore the limits of her creativity.

Since then she has performed her new material extensively as a solo artist, and began learning to use LogicPro software to record demos of her songs. She has challenged herself with new projects such as playing keyboards and singing backup vocals in a band, Pete Casey and the Vikkies; doing songwriting sessions, and scoring the soundtrack to a short film; Scattered.

Growing up with musician parents meant that venues like the Dakota Tavern and the Cameron House have always felt like home turf, but making debuts on these stages with her own projects has been extremely rewarding. Chloë will begin recording an EP in the coming months and looks forward to forming a band in the near future.

Shelsey Jarvis, Country Singer/Songwriter

Shelsey JarvisAfter experimenting with many different styles of music, Shelsey Jarvis has finally found that country really resonated. After being involved in projects ranging from metal to hip hop to folk, she was hired to sing and write a country song and re-discovered the genre.

Having grown up in New Brunswick on the east coast of Canada, Shelsey is no stranger to country. She grew up listening to Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson. After moving to places like Philadelphia, New York and Montreal, she started discovering other types of music. Nothing seemed to quite click. Recently in 2010, she fell in love with the singer/songwriter focus that country has, and plans to move to Nashville with her husband Max, who is also a musician.

The wheels are in motion, the demo is being recorded at le Plan A studio, and the live set is being prepared. Stay tuned.

Born into a Musical Trinidadian family, Austyn showed interest in her love for music at a very young age. With the help of her mother she was enrolled in dance classes, arts schools, and had multiple auditions at an early age. Austyn put her focus into her sports with the idea that an athletic scholarship could give her the opportunity to possibly start her music career outside of Canada.

It wasn’t until she had an offer to transfer to a school in West Virginia after three years of college that she decided she wanted to quit school and go back to Toronto to really focus on her music full-time.

Currently Austyn Leshawn has released her new single “QUEENDOM”, and is expected to release her current project this coming March 2017.
