// Ben Heffernan
In both his songwriting and in his performing, the London, Ontario-based award-winning solo artist Ben Heffernan displays a maturity well beyond his 17 years. Over the past three years, Heffernan has worked hard to hone his performance skills, playing over 100 shows in London and its surrounding areas, while also spending countless hours songwriting. Heffernan considers John Mayer, U2, Gavin James and James Bay to be the artists who have influenced his folk-pop sound the most. His live performances have drawn further comparisons to Ed Sheeran, as his use of live looping to create add...itional layers of instrumentation and backing vocals has captivated and enthralled audiences wherever he has played.
// Moscow Apartment Music
Moscow Apartment is an acoustic duo whose close, sweet harmonies and exquisite song craft defy their young age (14 & 15). Influenced by Big Thief, Feist, Joni Mitchell, among others, Brighid & Pascale, skilled multi instrumentalists (guitar, piano, violin, ukulele, mandolin, banjo and bass) and grads of Girls Rock Camp Toronto, are powerful & mature songstresses. When these two sing together it is like honey to the ears. Their debut single has been played on CBC and they are booked for the Winnipeg Folk, Hillside & Summerfolk festivals. Moscow Apartment love to sideways slide from more traditional folk to pop and electronic inspired indie rock.
