// Declan O'Donovan
A masterful songwriter collects life's experiences and artfully turns them into songs that capture the imagination of a listener. Declan O’Donovan is that songwriter, that contemporary troubadour who utilizes a broad palate of voice and piano to tell intriguing stories through the music he creates.

At home in the rural environs of Whitehorse, Yukon and equally at home in the urban centres of Montreal and Toronto, this broad sense of place comes into play in the songs Declan has written for his newest release, Broken Sky. “Overall, the sound of the album strikes a balance between the rural and roots, and the urban and contemporary influences that contributed to the sound and the songwriting,” says O’Donovan.
— // Lydia Persaud
Being raised on a healthy dose of the country music narrative and the spiritual motivation of gospel music, Lydia is reconnecting with her roots by releasing her debut EP “Low Light”. Winner of the 2013 Oscar Peterson Award, Lydia has developed her work as a vocalist through studying jazz at Humber College, and through her active participation in the Toronto music scene. Lydia has been performing internationally with such groups as The O’Pears, Dwayne Gretzky and The Soul Motivators and now she is ready to create her own voice as a solo artist. “Low Light” highlights sounds from Canadian artists as Robbie Grunwald (Jill Barber, Good Lovelies), James Robinson (Lindi Ortega), Josh Van Tassel (Great Lake Swimmers), Drew Djreka (Jill Barber) and many more guests, highlighting some of Canada’s finest musicians. Infused with sounds from Ray Lamontange, Eva Cassidy and Michael Kiwanuka, Lydia tells her stories with a soulful delivery.
