Kele Fleming

Kele Fleming is a deeply gifted singer-songwriter who resides in Victoria, BC. Kele gracefully weaves the vulnerability of traditional folk with the raw power of rock and roll. Her voice is a thunderstorm of emotion and grit that generously pours into the souls of her listeners. Kele’s work explores deeply personal themes – navigating life as a queer woman, the complexities of our modern world and advocating for a healthier planet. Her music is similar to the likes of female powerhouses such as Neko Case, Lucinda Williams and Kate Bush yet her sound is entirely fresh. Kele fronted the 90’s indie band “Hazel Motes” astutely named after a haunted fictional character from the cult classic  “Wise Blood.

Claire Coupland

There is a pureness to Claire’s voice that can silence a room. A moving songwriter and compelling guitarist, Claire combines smooth folk finger picking, jazz influenced progressions and a powerful yet vocal tender delivery. Her music delivers carefully crafted and vulnerable reckonings of self worth, escaping abuse, painful goodbyes, fragile family dynamics and ultimate hope for the future. Music publications around the world laud her lyricism, deft guitar playing and rich vocals. Claire Coupland brings a graceful contemporary feel to indie folk music.

Elise Boulanger

Elise Boulanger is a sweet darkness wrapped in orchestral instrumentation. Hailing from Vancouver and Nanaimo on Coast Salish lands, this Chamber-Pop artist completely captivates audiences with her haunting avalanche of a voice. Boulanger is a bilingual environmental advocate that creates cinematic dreamscapes atop classical strings piano, drums and ukulele. She is sonically reminiscent of Kate Bush and Lana Del Rey with her angelic yet raw dramatic artistry. Her actions are bold and beautiful as she takes stages to teach audiences how to adapt to climate change.

Ghostly Hounds

Ghostly Hounds is the folk project of Francesca Mirai, singer-songwriter-banjo player based in the Lekwungen territory colonially known as Victoria, BC. Often accompanied by Finn Letourneau on fiddle and vocal harmonies, Ghostly Hounds creates soulful folk and old-time music with a distinct, haunting sound. 

The traditional combination of banjo and fiddle, met with classically trained, powerhouse vocals, evokes a fusion of modern and vintage sounds, while simple foot percussion infuses dynamics, drive, and rhythm into their live shows.
