In 2019, musician Felix Roberts (the Flu, Hippie Satan) set out to write and record an experimental rock album alone in his Vancouver apartment. The result, “Rabbit Hole - Blue Attitude” is a deeply personal, yet fun and groovy record reminiscent of artists like Beck and Kurt Vile. Felix is currently touring the album across Canada, while writing Rabbit Hole II.

Vancouver-based Brit Laura M Jay fuses together her classical roots and pop sensibilities to create an off-beat sub-genre of baroque-hearted alt pop music, the channel through which she expresses her ever evolving journey to find a sense of home. Having left her life in the UK as a classical musician 3 years ago, the singer-songwriter melds emotive piano melodies and lush vocal harmonies, interwoven with powerful guitar motifs to deliver her adorkably authentic songs of the breakdowns, breakaways, break-ups and break-throughs that have driven her to create a new life in Canada. Laura also performs with indie-folk-rock band the DinoCats and roots-reggae band The Rebel Republic.

Dusknote is a collection of moments that were compiled and refined over several years by singer/guitarist Adam Parent. Entwining moody, gliding melodies and the influences of rock, blues and life-lessons together is what gives meat to the bones of Adam's songs. After playing a number of solo shows in Canada and Australia, he then brought drummer Marc Lovisa and bassist Keegan Scott into the fold to add depth and dynamic. Based in Vancouver, BC, they have been performing Adam’s music since 2017.

Root Dwellers is a grassroots live music and interview series that provides an important and intimate platform to Vancouver music artists, both bands and solo artists. The setting is a distraction-free listening room at Spade Coffee & Spirits in the heart of Commercial Drive, East Vancouver. The audience can enjoy performances with an alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverage and delicious food in a cosy, connected, inclusive space and be captivated and drawn into the artists creative realm.
This event takes place on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
