Patrick Ballantyne
Patrick Ballantyne
If songs were grains of salt, Patrick Ballantyne is the saltshaker. Songs appear to flow effortlessly from Patrick Ballantyne.  A sought after co-writer with cuts on over 10 albums and 2 solo albums of his own, his catalogue is continually expanding. Playing it safe as a lawyer by day, Ballantyne reserves risk-taking for his music. Never content to replicate, Patrick is innovative and experimental. He blends and bends genres, while maintaining an emphasis on melodies and lyrics. His body of work spans multiple genres, yet every song contains a deeply personal and soulful aspect. His latest (sardonically titled) endeavor “Hit-a-month” showcases his “breath-taking range” and enables him to expose his music in an immediate and intimate way.

This Toronto-based Singer/ Songwriter, has been writing songs since he first picked up a guitar at the age of 14. Heavily influenced by the sounds of his hometown station CKLW, you can hear echoes of the motor cities in his timeless songs. When not lawyering or songwriting, Patrick spends his time serving on industry panels, performing at songwriting circles, mentoring, running, and spending time with his family.
Ambre Mclean
Ambre Mclean
Ambre McLean is an undiscovered gem in a sea of music mediocrity. Her lyrics are dripped with tales of love, loss and struggle. If you want to hear one of Canada's greatest independent singer/songwriters look no further. Ambre can seem small on stage, but it doesn’t take long for her talent to make her seem larger than life, a giant filling the room with the kind of songs that make you remember lost loves and abandoned dreams.
