Steeped in folk, roots, and country sensibilities, Danielle Knibbe's songs win, and then all too often break your heart. Drawn from keen observation, they tell stories of the shimmer of new love, the angst of fading love, insecurity, loss, and hope. Her stories may not be about you, but you'll think they are. Her debut CD, Some Curious Birds (2016), has garnered CBC attention, regionally and nationally. CKUA’s David Ward selected it as an ‘Essential Album of 2016’, and it charted in the top 20 on CiTR, CJRU, CKDU and CFBX. The summer of 2017 saw Danielle performing at BC’s Tiny Lights and Sunshine Festivals, and on two Western Canada tours alongside her musical collaborators Bryn Besse, guitar, and Connor Walsh, bass.
Aussie transplant Chelsea Reed proves that evocative lyrics and accessible melodies transcend borders as her formative experiences in Newcastle, Australia now infuse the musical brew she is creating in Toronto, her new home. This triple threat (singer, songwriter, pianist) is preparing to launch her first full-length recording, recorded with the guidance of respected Canadian producer, Dave Draves (Kathleen Edwards, Jim Bryson) in October 2017. The album takes the listener through the psyche of this self deprecating but playful twenty-something, exploring the universal themes of connection and purpose through a unique lens, with songs written by Chelsea herself, along with co-writes with some of Toronto’s sought after songwriting veterans.
