J Blissette is Jackson Tiefenbach, a Lethbridge, Alberta-based garage rocker, singer songwriter, and tropical-glam eccentric. The project began in 2016 as a love letter to the 70’s, with punk influences and 12-string jangle rubbing up against post-punk nervousness and singer-songwriter ambition. Wrap that in an aesthetic that goes from Vegas to Honolulu through Joshua Tree, and you’ve got a sprawling, eclectic debut record paired with a razor sharp, unrelenting live rock and roll act.
The Sylvia Platters are a four-piece power pop and shoegaze outfit hailing from all corners of BC's Fraser Valley. The two-time FVMA nominees’ music has drawn favorable comparisons to The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Replacements, and Weezer. The Platters have a full-length album and an EP under their belt as well as several province-wide tours. That experience translates into a compelling live act that Glenn Ess of The Cascade calls, "vibrant and endlessly entertaining." Be on the lookout for their upcoming split 12" LP with Stephen O'Shea this summer.
Ian Fildes is a New Westminster based musician attending Douglas College for music. Ian has played in various bands since the age of 16 including GSTS!, Varsity Girls, and most recently Queen Bee & the Buzzkills. He has been trying to expand his sonic understanding and wants to explore this with tunes ranging from personal compositions to reimagining medieval chant and 80’s new wave.
