Over the last ten years Moncton's Jared Lutes and his Duo/Band 'inTandem' have cornered the party gig market in most of New Brunswick and northern Nova Scotia as the busiest and most versatile act around. As an annual fixture at major festivals, urban hotspots, rural shindigs, countless fundraisers, as well as being the most in-demand entertainers at private events, the group has refined their talents through a relentless commitment to performing and improving. Now, several band demos later, Jared is repackaging himself as a thoughtful and driven solo artist with a world-class EP - 'Waiting on You' - featuring the best of his mainstream power ballads and guitar-driven pop-rock anthems. Although each song has been impeccably produced with radio and film in mind, the intimate vocal performances and the common thread of Jared's artistic vision are still clearly evident throughout.
Halifax-based songwriter Ria Mae knows there is a flip side to every coin. She calls both heads and tails on her EP, Between the Bad. She prides herself on telling it like it is. Her narrative-driven songs explore love, loss, forgiveness and redemption. Between the Bad is a five-track EP recorded at Spaces Between Studios, produced by Mae and Don McKay. "I've always been really affected by other people's feelings," says Mae. "When I was young I could tell when people were feeling a certain way even without any outward expression. I would often take it on as my own feelings." When she's not sharing the stage with acclaimed performers such as Amelia Curran, The Cliks and Hidden Cameras, Mae lends her talents to the screen. She recently starred as Emily, a renegade homeless musician in Snow, a film written and directed by Rohan Fernando.
