Krista Hartman
Krista Hartman
Canadian songwriter, singer, and guitarist Krista Hartman emerged from the prairies on April 18, 1979 in Peace River, Alberta. An inquisitive world traveller with an alternative vibe, her songs and distinct voice are earthy ethereal gems. Krista was raised in a musical family: Her mother was a pianist in a family of rustic fiddle players while her father, was a lead guitarist that toured the prairies with a vintage Gibson Les Paul in Rock’n Rock bands in the early sixties.
Krista began performing original music in taverns around The North Country before she was of age to legally drink alcohol. By 18, she was determined quit music and fled to Australia without her guitar, but soon realized her only guaranteed way to make money to travel was through busking. Hartman borrowed a beat up acoustic from a fellow traveller and entertained her way across Australia for a year. When she returned to Canada, she had written the bulk of her first album “Passport” and released it on her own label, Hartman Incorporated in 2005. In 2008, she recorded her second record “Nostalgia” with Don Kerr in Toronto and her first single, “Broken in Two” a duet, featured Ron Sexsmith. This led to her being featured in the studio on CBC Newsworld as well as Rich Terfry’s, Radio 2 Drive. By 2009, Hartman had appeared in the entertainment section of Toronto’s Globe and Mail after performing a melancholic bilingual roots version of the Canadian National Anthem in front of Canada’s Prime Minister in Toronto.
Hartman toured “Nostalgia” solo across Canada and opened for well-known acts, she received radio play and was highlighted on television shows receiving positive reviews from music critics. In 2015, Hartman’s follow-up album “Constellations” was written in St.Lucia and produced in Toronto by Dean Drouillard. The record caught the attention of Michael Teach in Chicago and Hartman was interviewed and performed on The Chicago Acoustic Music Network’s Podcast. Her first music video for her single “Sunny Days” was filmed in New York City and released in Canada on the day Trudeau won the election. “Constellations”
Krista Hartman receives favourable airplay on College and University Radio Stations across Canada and on satellite radio internationally. Krista Hartman’s music continues to be discovered across the globe and she pursues songwriting and recording, blissfully.
Beth Moore
Beth Moore
Moore has received numerous awards and accolades including being named “Artist of the Year” and “Folk Artist of the Year” at the 2011 Niagara Music Awards. Additionally, she has garnered two Toronto Independent Music Award Nominations, and was the winner of the CBC “Expand your Bandwidth” competition, receiving over 70,000 votes.



With years of performing under her belt, Moore has played over 600 live shows both big and small including the 2012 Canada Day Concert on Parliament Hill in Ottawa alongside Feist and Jully Black, in addition to prestigious festivals across southern Ontario including Scene Music Festival, In the Soil, and Toronto’s Indie Week. Recently, she opened for Keith Urban at Global/Entertainment Tonight Canada’s New Year’s Eve bash in Niagara Falls. She also performed at the premiere of the U.S. documentary “A Second Knock at the Door” (Netflix, History Channel) which prominently featured three of Moore’s songs, and featured her single “Love Now” from “Five Out Of Ten” on the hit show Degrassi.



Moore’s songwriting has been praised as honest, to the point and from the heart. With world-class aspirations, she recorded “Five Out Of Ten”, the follow-up to her debut LP “The Road” (2011), with award-winning producer Timothy Abraham (Rob Szabo, Peter Katz, Glen Hansard, Ron Sexsmith, Grand Analog, Garth Hudson). The album is equal parts compelling, familiar and comfortable – yet all her own. “Five Out Of Ten” was Factor and OAC funded.
