Kaliyan, Cassy, Joesie, Thea and Shaelin Palmer are the folk/pop band, Ashelin. Five sisters between the ages of 15 and 23 raised in Conception Bay South, Newfoundland. Influenced by their strong Irish background and Newfoundland culture they have developed an unusual and fascinating sound. Their new album "The Road Not Taken" was produced by the incomparable Grammy Award winner George Massenburg and by ECMA Award winner and one of the top sound engineers in Canada, Al Strickland.

The Repercussionists are a four-piece rock and roll outfit from Halifax, Nova Scotia. In the past two years they have released an EP, "Mistakes and All", and debuted their first full-length album, the self-titled, "The Repercussionists". 2009 saw a new incarnation of the band when percussionist Ian Macmillan and guitarist Christopher John joined founding members vocalist/lyricist Isaac Stowe and bassist Stephen Terry.
