Eric Brandon
Eric Brandon
Eric Brandon is a singer/songwriter from Hamilton Ontario, Canada who took to writing stories at a young age. His father was an avid reader, and it became a tradition that Eric would write stories for his father to read. Before long, he inherited his first guitar from a family friend, and the stories he would write would take on new life in music.

Like many, Eric started his musical career in local rock bands, but his passion for stories drove a growing fascination with folk music and singer-songwriters. From giants like Bob Dylan and John Mayer to Ben Howard, Ryan Adams, Northcote, Scott Orr, or Donovan Woods, - it was the capturing of heart-felt and personal moments that drew him in. At only 17, Brandon released his first EP titled “Stories,” under a Hamilton record label known for local folk music called “Othersongs Music." At 19, Eric found himself on the road as a hired musician, backing and eventually opening for the Juno-Award winning band The City Harmonic.

Traveling all across North America and performing for hundreds of thousands in that season gave him a clarity of perspective as he figured out how to tell his own story. Life is challenging no matter where you find yourself, and it was the challenges of real life on the road--loneliness while being surrounded, meeting and losing a girl far from home, and the struggles of growing up amidst wanderlust--that would ultimately become the songs and stories that make up 2017's “Old Love." Today, Eric Brandon is traveling the country with a guitar on his back, friends at his side, and a troubadour’s charm singing the timeless stories wrapped in penetrating and unforgettable melodies of Old Love.
Drew Brown
Drew Brown
There is a deep story woven into the lyrics and melodies of this award-winning Canadian Singer-Songwriter and Producer. Influenced by styles of pop, soul, indie, folk, electro and hard rock - the self-produced and 2015 Juno nominated album "Analog Love in Digital Times" takes you on an honest and adventurous ride through stories of love and all of its complications. His 2017 EP “Homecoming” (which includes the new single “Where the Heart Is” as well as b-sides and songs recorded live on tour) continues the movement into deeper soundscapes and storytelling. He has crafted an instantly recognizable sound that is familiar and comfortable, yet all his own.

The first thing you notice when listening to Drew (on the album or in a live setting), is that he has a very rich, powerful and original voice. His songs slide effortlessly from soft introspective folk to soaring rock choruses, while retaining strong pop sensibilities. Deeper listens reveal raw, candid lyrics toying with hunger, disillusionment, relationship struggles and the pains of his past, exorcising them in the process. But in his voice…. you hear hope… and it's contagious.

His live show stands out above the noise, offering an emotively engaging twist on the singer/songwriter genre. Again.. blending folk and soul into a sonic package... Drew Brown's music and the live show is revealing a story waiting to be told and aching to be heard. His heart for connecting with people through music is evident from the moment you meet him. No matter the venue, audience or song - connecting people to hope and love, bringing them into a space of wonder and gratitude through music and story…. is at the heart of what he does.

Drew also has a heart for pouring into other artists and musicians. And to help with that.. he started the Personic Creative Collective to be a hub for creatives to grow, learn and be resourced. Offering production, photography and a community/support system to assist in launching their projects.
