Aleksi Campagne is a 26-year-old singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Montreal. His music blends his folk roots with his jazz training, which combined with the avant-garde distortion pedals on his violin, make for wickedly catchy dancing anthems. Much like the eclectic arts scene of his hometown, Aleksi continues to push his musical boundaries. His virtuosic violin style has been compared to that of Andrew Bird, he accompanies himself on the violin while singing and he has a voice that lends homage to R&B legend Sam Cooke—in fact, his new song Sweet Talk pays tribute to Cook himself. Aleksi’s eclectic folk sound and heartfelt lyrics have been known to move audiences all across Canada.
Nathanael Larochette is an instrumental post fingerstyle guitarist and member of the chamber folk trio Musk Ox and progressive metal band The Night Watch. His most recent solo album Earth and Sky was released in 2016 and was supported by a three week tour across Europe. His work has been featured in Pitchfork, Exclaim! and The Needle Drop.
