A triple nominee at the 2011 East Coast Music Awards, Carmel Mikol has always been a songwriter. From her childhood on a family farm in rural Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, to her current "home" on the road, Carmel has built her life around crafting songs, collecting stories, and carving poetry out of the human experience. After a year of touring extensively across Canada and the US with her celebrated debut album "In My Bones", Carmel recently returned home to Cape Breton to create her newest recording "Creature".

The members of Young River met at a three way intersection somewhere in Halifax, Nova Scotia. They write modern day nocturnes about the fine lines between secrets and announcements, lust and love, and good and evil. The sound has a history. It pays respect to the seeds of rock and roll and the sweet-nothings of love songs. Their self-titled debut album to be released in the late fall of 2011 is a lyrical expression of the things we all keep to ourselves, combined with sweltering guitar solos over due-paying rock and roll rhythms. With the release of their first record, Young River will be found chasing white and yellow lines, making noise, and doing time.
