Groovy Folk Rock

Hear here

Called “groovy folk-rock” and showcased on stages all over Canada, the music of Lindsey White uses many instruments and one strong voice to craft performances with unmistakable passion and emotional depth. The new, fan-funded Renegade album was produced by Mitch Dorge, (Crash Test Dummies) mastered by João Carvalho (The Tragically Hip, Sarah Slean) released in 2015 with a companion book (of poetry, prose and other writings) and expands the “groovy folk-rock” label to experiment with indefinable genres. Whether intimately on her own or filling the stage with her band, her live presence offers a playground of energetic musicianship and thoughtfully crafted lyrics. She throws similar passion into songwriting and other workshops through inspiration-based music sessions with creative youth. This work landed her a nomination for a Winnipeg Arts Council “Making a Mark” award and a designation as one of the CBC Manitoba Future 40.

Singer/Songwriter

Hear here

Matt Moskal plays a fresh form of Manitoban folk. The Ontario-born troubadour mixes tried-and-true finger plucking and evocative storytelling with lively yet smoky vocal melodies. He delivers confused and compassionate truths with tact. Brutal honesty feels so sweet when it’s cushioned between soft, sentimental acoustic tones. Suited for coffee time after Sunday family meals, a waning August afternoon or those late night moments after your worst breakup.

Matt Moskal has played alongside the likes of Julie Doiron, Wax Mannequin, Spookey Ruben and Fred Penner. In 2010, he played the main stage of the 40th annual Northern Lights Festival Boreal. The festival also featured headliners Broken Social Scene and The Weakerthans. In 2014, he spearheaded Folk & Word at the West End Cultural Centre in Winnipeg, MB, combining slam poetry with folk music. In 2017, he curated, hosted and performed at Don’t Be Scared: A Tribute to Daniel Johnston at the Good Will Social Club in Winnipeg. The event was a fundraiser for the Canadian Mental Health Association.

Singer/Songwriter

The Webster Brothers are an offshoot of The Webster Project. Where they differ is that the latter parlays a classic acoustic sound crossed with energetic, dynamic vocal arrangements. "This format enables us to give attention and treatment to songs one might not expect" says bassist/singer/mandolin player Kyle Chartier. The songs are arranged in a singer/songwriter format with sparse instrumentation and rich harmonies. Modern day story telling with an old school feel.
