Kuba Oms, the singer, songwriter and co-producer, is known for filling dance floors. His 2011 hit Electrolove played on over 100 radio stations in Canada, and his recently released album ADHD with its quick tempo and electro-pop has gone in a similar dance direction. He has shared a stage with Common, De la Soul, Metric, The Chemical Brothers, Maceo Parker and Mark Farina.
In addition to his solo work, Oms has been the frontman of Velvet for 15 years. He lives in Victoria and was recently diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) which inspired the name of his album.
The Matinée won third place in the 2011 Peak Performance Project and signed a record deal soon afterwards. And they have been playing live performances and experimenting with their sound ever since.
Soul singer Jarvis Church needs little introduction. The singer-songwriter, music producer, and winner of multiple JUNO (and other music industry) awards is a renowned contributor to contemporary music. Church, also known as Gerald Eaton, was the frontman of the R&B group Philosopher Kings, and producer for Nelly Furtado and K'Naan.
Church's most recent album, The Soul Station Vol. 1: The Songs of Sam Cooke—A Tribute, recognizes Sam Cooke's contribution to soul music and the Civil Rights Movement. It features Michael Kaeshammer (piano), Marc Rogers (bass), Davide DiRenzo (drums), Justin Abedin (guitar), Wade O. Brown (vocals) and Chris Rouse.
