Wooly

Wooly represents a collaboration of unique musical talents brought together through a common vision. Their music and lyrics are innovative, energetic, and insightful presenting a fresh view of the human experience and evoking a range of visceral responses. Emerging from diverse musical experiences and influences, Wooly strives to present a fusion of folk, jazz, rock, and alternative that is truly original. 

Dizzy

With a Polaris Prize-nominated album and a Juno Award already under their belt, the Oshawa-based dream-pop outfit Dizzy has gained acclaim from outlets across the continent including NPR, Pitchfork, NME, and CBC Music. Tender, honest, and reflective, Dizzy’s music reveals a rare willingness to expose messy feelings and a preternatural gift for turning those musings into songs primed for singing along.

Special thanks to DRIFF in a Jiff and Canada Council and the Arts Reopening Fund for their support with this event.
