Skye Wallace is what happens when a trained singer with east coast roots discovers punk rock in their youth.
Hailed coast to coast as a “national treasure” (Sad Mag) and recently listed in Chart Attack’s Top 10 Canadian Female Artists, Skye Wallace bases out of Toronto. Her newest album “Something Wicked”, produced by Jim Bryson, spent several months charting on Earshot’s Folk/Roots Top 10, and was listed in CBC’s Top 8 Albums You Need To Hear & Vancouver Weekly’s Best Albums of 2016. “Something Wicked” will “burn you to the ground!” (Vice/Noisey)
“Skye Wallace’s music was one of the great finds of Searchlight. She writes personal, honest and powerful songs that Emmylou Harris or Gord Downie would be happy to have in their set.”
– Mike Miner
Senior Producer, CBC Music
“Skye Wallace is a national treasure.”
– Sad Mag
Dominique Fricot has come a long way since his humble, indie-rock beginnings in The Painted Birds. Taking a brave step into the deep-end of solo artistry, Fricot dove into the creative currents of his emotionally potent EP, If Baby Could Walk, in 2012.
Tumbling into local cult fame, the Vancouver native’s swoon-worthy baritone ballads and honest lyrics named him the third place winner in The Peak Performance Project and won him the Shore 104.3’s Best of BC award on September 2012.
