// Ace of Wands
Ace of Wands is the music and songwriting of Lee Rose. Joined by Anna Mernieks (Beams) and Jody Brumell (SHANKS), the band creates mixture of tones and emotions, blending soaring vocals, violin, synth-bass and guitar into songs inspired by the supernatural, elemental forces and physical sensation. Drawing on a background of rock and roll, classical violin training and folk music, Ace of Wands expands their songwriting to incorporate facets of cinematic soundscapes, pop melodies and interlocking guitars and vocals. The songs are deeply personal, reflecting themes of love, loss and tra...uma. Ace of Wands strives to create continuity between each element of their art; from music and video to merch and live performance. Motivated by the tarot card of the same name, the music is about will and determination; to create and destroy, and to bring about physical, mental and spiritual transformation. Their debut EP, Grown from Good, was released on April 6, 2018.

Ron Hawkins has long been revered as one of Canada’s greatest contemporary singer-songwriters.Prolific as he is, Ron follows up his Feb. 2015 release of Garden Songs, with SPIT SPUTTER & SPARKLE, continuing to exemplify his skills with a word, a hook, a riff and a melody to display some of his finest work to date. As lead singer/multi-instrumentalist and main songwriter of Canada’s legendary Lowest of the Low, Ron Hawkins has enjoyed many accolades through the years: In 1996, 2000 and again in 2005, Chart Magazine honoured the group’s 1991 debut album, Shakespeare My Butt, with spots in the top 10 of the Top 100 Canadian Albums of All Time. In 2000 and once again in 2015, Hawkins was voted Songwriter of the Year by NOW Magazine’s reader’s poll. Also in 2000, Ron received Toronto station 102.1 The Edge’s Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2008 The Lowest of the Low was inducted into the Canadian Indie Rock Hall of Fame and awarded gold records for Shakespeare My Butt.
