Trish MacAulay
Trish MacAulay
Born and raised in Prince Edward Island, Trish's musical roots started in piano and percussion. She brings her percussion skills to her guitar. Trish’s guitar playing is percussive, yet melodic. She now resides in Toronto where she practices clinical music therapy by day, and song-writes by night. Trish released her debut album in 2015 titled, “Quiet Your Mind.” The album encompasses the continuous process of personal transformation. The music is a journey in self-love through marriage, divorce, religion and identity. In sharing music, Trish hopes people can find, "Strength in the differences between us...and comfort where we overlap"(Ani Difranco).
Dinah Thorpe
Dinah Thorpe
Dinah Thorpe has been called “one of the best voices we've heard in the twenty-first century,” a singer with a “gorgeously deep and weary alto,” “a wicked multi-instrumentalist,” “a composer of infinite cleverness,” “provocative and supremely artful,” and “warm, accessible, inviting, and impressive.” Thorpe calls herself a singer, songwriter, and producer, and she lives, gardens, bikes, and works in Toronto.
Thorpe’s music resists simple genre definitions. The Toronto-based artist has been favourably compared to Portishead, Natalie Merchant, Beth Orton, Grace Jones, Feist, Laurie Anderson, and David Bowie among others. But she draws on a hugely diverse range of influences—from folk to rap, trip hop to blues, orchestral to techno—and distills them into a musical style that is unmistakably her own.
Thorpe has honed her performance chops opening for Buck 65 in a boxing gym, playing at a public bath in Zürich, and sharing the stage with industry heavyweights like Kate & Anna McGarrigle, The Cliks, Eternia, and Melissa Ferrick. Her past festival appearances include POP Montréal, Hillside, NXNE, Europride, In the Dead of Winter, Mayworks, and Ladyfest. Thorpe’s music has been featured on MTV's Sixteen and Pregnant, Anderson Cooper Specials, NBA Inside Stuff, and the soundtrack for the Diana Scheunemann film Love American Skin. She has received two JUNO Award nominations for Recording Package of the Year and an Independent Music Award nomination, and was named Best Up and Coming Indie Folk Producer by Toronto Exclusive Magazine.
