Garnet Avery
The Right Heart

What do you get when you mix East Coast melodic traditions with West Coast Country? Born in Nova Scotia, Garnet Avery found himself drawn to the Gulf Islands of British Columbia's West Coast. Garnet's foot stomping mix of Eastern traditional music and country emerged from a life spent working both of Canada's coastlines worked in mining, fishing, and dredging. His music is drawn from his own experiences and those of the people around him. You can hear rock influences too...

In 2003 Garnet performed at the Stan Rogers Folk Festival. This disc is so very danceable! Garnet wrote all of the great songs on the CD! This great debut CD should dominate Canadian country stations!

Gary Fjellgaard Believe In Forever

Gary Fjellgaard - 'Believe In Forever'. From the intimate theatre to the outdoor stage, Gary Fjellgaard effortlessly bridges the gap between country and folk, drawing his audience in with the magic of lyrical imagery. Stories and songs of wind swept prairies, rushing rivers, the working man, cowboy heroes and romance insinuate themselves in listener's hearts and minds with their sheer honesty and warmth all ringing true as the man himself. Uniquely Canadian, this prairie-raised west coast balladeer is a champion of vanishing values and frontier spirit. Gary's songs about lone horsemen riding through verdant valleys and along moonlit mountainside trails are not fabricated solely from his imagination. He keeps in touch with his roots riding in the Annual Kamloops Cattle Drive, and has entertained at Cowboy gatherings from Calgary to Tucson. After 25 years as a professional musician, with seven of his songs being picked as Song of the Year, Gary Fjellgaard looks back on hundreds of towns and cities, thousands of gigs, and hundreds of thousands of listeners who have been touched profoundly by his music. "He is a poet of the extravagantly good side of human spirit; breathtakingly sane and compassionate.

George Armishaw - Lonely

 

Gordon Carter
Rivers & Roads

Gordon’s debut CD "Rivers & Roads" has been a long time coming. The CD, produced by Doug Cox, was released in July 2005, and contains 13 self-penned tracks . It features some of BC’s finest musicians such as Daniel Lapp, Diamond Joe White, Tammy Fassaert and Sue Pyper.

Gordon Carter is a rare breed in this world. He writes from the heart and writes about his local heritage and homeland. He is the kind of songwriter that defies time. In this day of mass-produced music, his work stands up against the classic songwriters of our day. If we had a 2005 Woodstock, Gordon Carter would be there.

Henry currently performs live throughout Western Canada both as a solo act and with his band, 'Foul Play'.

His song 'Rockin' On the Redline' received regular airplay in Illinois on Springfield's #1 talk radio station WTAX 1240 AM morning 'drivetime' show hosted by Don Jackson, aka;'One-Eyed Jack'. EDGE OF A DREAM reached the #2 spot on the CHLY 101.7 FM TOP 50 in August 2002.

Irene Jackson
Catnip

"When we approached Dave to do the artwork, we had been messing around with a few ideas already as to how to approach the front cover...'Catnip', how the heck were we going to create THAT???

"We thought of the classic animated 'cat on a fence howling at the moon' idea, we took a zillion pictures of our cat, Picard, thinking maybe we'd get some ideas from that. But ultimately, we wanted something that would be upbeat to represent the feel of the title cut.

"What you always hear in discussions about album cover art is that they should reflect what's inside...well DUH! But it's true that you can't always judge a CD by its cover :-) Keeping this in mind, people have often described my music as a throwback to the 60's and 70's singer/songwriter styles of James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and others of that era. That's when the idea of giving the cover a 60's look came up. Dave went to the library and got a feel for colours and designs used in that time period from 'Life Magazine'. We also knew we wanted him to design a cat character...Dave has received many awards for his television animations over the years. If you live in the Vancouver/Victoria area, you'll often see his CHEK Television animations on station ID's!

And what's with the martini? Why, that's the 'people's catnip' :-) Doesn't music give YOU a buzz??"

Jeremy Walsh
Self-Titled Debut

A talented entertainer and songwriter in the tradition of Paxton and Guthrie, Jeremy Walsh draws from many different traditions of folk music including Celtic, Appalacian, French Canadian, Bluegrass, Irish, Maritime and Newfoundland. Produced by High McMillan of "Spirit of the West", "Self Titled Debut" follows Jeremy's successful stint as a key performer, vocalist and writer in the Canadian band "Scruj MacDuhk." While his music ranges from lilting celtic to furious folk rock, all is delivered with passion and a highly infectious energy. It's no wonder he has shared stages with Eileen Ivers, Lunasa, James Keelaghan, Dervish, The Paperboys and Great Big Sea.
