Singer-songwriter Leanne Hoffman has a voice that is as haunting as it is angelic. Her writing has been described as “beyond her years”. She has the rare ability to dress a beautiful melody in a lyric that is both biting and elegant. Her duo project Magnolia achieved success throughout Atlantic Canada, charting on campus radio throughout the Maritimes and receiving considerable CBC play nation-wide. The duo toured throughout Atlantic Canada, Ontario and Quebec. In addition to her solo work, she has been a backup singer for Cyndi Cain, Erin Costelo, Gabrielle Papillon and Soho Getto and has appeared on recordings of Ashley MacIssac, Erin Costelo, The Will Be Gones, Dana Beeler, and Tomi Allen. Through these collaborations she has had the opportunity to open for Aretha Franklin, Alain Toussant and The Trews and has traveled throughout Canada, the US and Germany.
Hailing from remote Kenora, ON, singer-songwriter Brooklyn Doran’s unique sound combines the glassy lakes and peaceful forests of her hometown with the passionate intensity of Toronto’s city streets. Working closely with producer Dan Hosh (City and Colour, Akrells, Said The Whale), Doran recorded the “These Paper Wings” EP in a repurposed Hamilton church during the winter of 2015. The record has accumulated over 30,000 streams to date, with the video for the single “I Found A Home” reaching over 20,000 views on Facebook.
