Alex Vissia's soulful and sultry songs are grown from folksy prairie roots, distilled until clear, and carefully Rock-filtered to let just the right amount of dirt back in. Growing up in the prairies of Alberta, Alex Vissia (VISS-ee-yah) has been preserving things in song-shaped jars for over a decade. Based in Edmonton, Alex has shared stages with artists Del Barber, Lindi Ortega, Whitehorse, Russel de Carle, Matt Anderson, and Harry Stinson. She has performed at Edmonton Folk Music Festival (2013), Canmore Folk Music Festival (2013), and Beaumont Blues & Roots Festival (2014). Deft penmanship, deliberate arrangements, and honed vocal tone make Alex stand out. Her second release is a whiskey-drenched batch of songs titled Young Love (May 2013). Press clippings

"An acoustic guitar master", says Maverick Magazine, Adrian Nation is a singer/songwriter who thrives on live performance and has toured the length and breadth of Europe. Adrian has shared stages with Martin Simpson, John Renbourne, Boo Hewerdine and Blackie and the Rodeo Kings whose legendary guitarist Colin Linden who appears on one track of Adrian's album Fall or Fly. Album Live at Crossroads, recorded on tour in the Netherlands, and was listed in the Top Ten Albums of 2014 by Canada's CKUA Radio presenter Andy Donnelly and received outstanding reviews in the UK press.

This is Adrian's first Canadian tour!

"We booked Adrian Nation for a support slot at Liverpool Acoustic Live and as soon as he started playing we knew we'd made a big mistake--this guy should have been headlining! Adrian's performance was a wonder to behold, one of those once in a blue moon 'why haven't we booked this guy before?' moments followed immediately by 'when can we get him back?'. His set was full of memorable songs of impressive variety, showing light and shade, depth and warmth. Adrian himself had an incredible empathy with the audience that was so natural and unforced, and don't get me started on his jaw-droppingly good guitar playing!"-Graham Holland)
