Described by CBC as 'one of the shining jewels in the crown of Canadian songwriters' Jadea Kelly spends her time writing and living between Toronto and Los Angeles CA. In 2016 she was awarded 'Contemporary Singer of the Year' at the Canadian Folk Music Awards for her heartfelt 2016 release 'Love & Lust'. Its featured single 'Beauty' was placed on the Lifetime Network feature 'No One Would Tell' and the 2017 CBC Rio Paralympics, an opening montage with over 900,000 views. Set for release on May 17, 2019, the MWI soundtrack EP has already received 'Best Score & Music' accolades from the Hollywood Independent Documentary Awards. MWI is the official soundtrack for 'Met While Incarcerated the Film', airing on the Documentary Channel and CBC March 31 2019.
Jadea Kelly is an intriguing amalgam of city and country influences, the nexus of where the wide open spaces of acoustic folk and Americana meet up with the influences of dark and gritty electric art/pop.”

Zoe Sky Jordan
Toronto, ON-born Zoe Sky Jordan is an alternative singer-songwriter now based in Nashville. The ease with which she writes and sings is not surprising, given that she was raised in a household where music played such a large role in daily life. Her parents, accomplished singer-songwriters Amy Sky and Marc Jordan, encouraged her to express herself through music from the time she was born. Her “smoldering subtle-swagger”, is deeply informed by Rickie Lee Jones and Joni Mitchell, and draws comparisons to Emily Haines and Regina Spektor.
"...a sleek, modern sound that’s still tinged with nostalgia."
“Across his three indie releases, Hecht has distinguished himself as the second coming of James Taylor, a gentler Damien Jurado. But, whatever the comparison, it’s hard to miss that his songwriting is distinct and individual. He doesn’t shy from the obvious rhyme, but manages it with a delicate audacity, placing it only where it best serves the story or the mood. And, there’s something about the way he unfurls a line that feels less like trying to work something out and more like just calling it what it is."
“Songwriting of the highest quality.”
Toronto-born singer & songwriter Emma-Lee has released 3 full-length albums and a number of successful singles since her debut in 2009. Her songs have been featured in multiple film and TV placements such as CBS’s “Beauty & The Beast”, NBC’s “Saving Hope”, MTV’s “Teen Wolf” and "Degrassi: The Next Generation", SYFY’s “Wynonna Earp”, "Dance Moms" and "Hello/Goodbye" to name a few. In 2016 her single “Worst Enemy” reached #18 on the Canadian AC Mediabase chart and #24 on the Hot AC chart. That same year she released an original holiday single titled “It Won’t Be Christmas” that landed her first top 10, peaking at #4 on AC Canadian Billboard.
Emma-Lee currently lives in Nashville, TN actively writing with and for other artists in a variety of genres. Most recently she’s co-written songs for Brett Kissel (Anthem), Tim Hicks (What A Song Should Do), Kira Isabella (I’m So Over Getting Over You), Michelle Treacy (Colours), Ryan Langdon (Lit In The Sticks), The Abrams (Wild At Heart), River Town Saints (A Little Bit Goes A Long Way), Madeline Merlo (Crush), Leah Daniels (Salt Water), Alee (Only The Strong Survive) and many more, resulting in numerous top 40 singles, a top 10 and a number 1.
