Ozere takes inspiration from classical string quartets and folk bands. It looks like half of each, but with its unique instrumentation - violin, cello, mandolin, bass and occasional vocals - it can do both at once. Jessica Deutsch's compositions bridge her upbringing as a chamber musician and her experience playing many styles as a sidewoman, including Balkan, Irish and Latin. This music takes you on a journey, from solemn chamber suites to knee-slapping reels. They were nominated for a 2016 Canadian Folk Music Award for "Finding Anyplace."
Jessica Deutsch - Violin/Vocals, Ben Plotnick - Mandolin/Guitar, Kaitlyn Raitz - Cello/Vocals and Bret Higgins - Bass.
Born in the 80s on the shores of the Detroit River not far from a 200-year-old cathedral during choir practice. Raised on Schubert and Bach mingled with Motown and pounding piano in the shade of the Ambassador Bridge. Anna Atkinson is a composer, songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist and theatre artist. She’s increasingly found herself at the intersection of these different art forms. The Toronto Star called her “the least earthbound artist we’ve heard in ages.” Anna has just released her second album, Sky Stacked Full, co-produced with guitarist David Occhipinti. She fronts electro-pop-R&B band Grannis Bea and sings and writes for new electro/viola/bass band Messiah Carry.
