There’s no fine line here: Sykamore is country music. A clear, unadulterated and effortless voice, tasteful arrangements and beautiful melodies are hallmarks of a Sykamore song. Sykamore is Jordan Ostrom’s creation and country music is the medium Ostrom chooses to bring us closer to heaven in the pines, recollections of intimate slow dances or reminders of the devastations of war. From recording demos and YouTube clips in her bedroom to opening for Miranda Lambert, Sykamore’s path (like her music) has been well-defined and unobstructed. As it should be when you do what you love.

Mélisande [électrotrad] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZD-WBobPP4
From the south shore of Montréal, from the town of Beloeil in the Richelieu River Valley, come the intriguing sounds of Mélisande [électrotrad]. Though Beloeil (“beautiful view”) was not officially given status as a village until 1903, the town’s first parish was built in 1694. It is from these ancient roots that Mélisande [électrotrad] seems to have forged her infectious, wholly original electrotrad. Traditional acoustic instruments, foot percussion and rich, hypnotic harmonies weave a perfect French braid with electric instruments and sequenced noises. Award-winning, dance-inspiring, and all-around captivating: Mélisande [électrotrad] is waking up her ancestors to bring them to the rave.

Henry Wagons
Sometimes it takes an outsider to see things with fresh eyes. From Australia’s sunny climes, Henry Wagons nails Americana with gritty, boastful, tunes about bad choices, dark turns and too much drink. His sly sense of humour, charm and bluster are patient stowaways in his mesmerizing Trojan horse of a baritone. Wagons is rollercoaster of an entertainer who unabashedly wears his influences (Lee Hazlewood, Nick Cave, Roy Orbison and more) on the sleeves of his velvet jumpsuit. CV
