// Lydia Persaud Music
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. “Low Light” features Lydia’s personal songwriting alongside simple and subtle instrumentation inspired by her writing with the ukulele. The EP captures sounds akin to Eva Cassidy, Michael Kiwanuka and Ray Lamontagne as Lydia combines folk story-telling with a soulful vocal delivery.

// Ken Yates
Since first planting roots within the Canadian music scene in 2011, Ken Yates has steadily grown a reputation as one of the country’s brightest singer/songwriters. His sound offers the complete package—unforgettable melodies, emotionally charged storytelling, and top-notch guitar chops—all gloriously displayed on Yates’ new album, Huntsville. Produced by Jim Bryson (Weakerthans, Kathleen Edwards), Yates’ second full-length effort is a major stylistic step forward, with its 11 tracks capturing his artistic evolution amid extensive touring over the past three years. “Keep Your Head Down,” with its subtle, driving groove, opens the album like a train pulling out at dawn, with vast, open vistas lying ahead. Those come into focus on other key tracks such as “Once More To The Lake,” “Roll Me On Home” and “The Best Part Of Leaving.” Yet, everywhere on the album, echoes of the Canadian songwriting tradition, from Gordon Lightfoot to Bruce Cockburn to Ron Sexsmith, are apparent, proving that with Huntsville, Ken Yates is ready to join that exalted company.
