Jodi King —

 In a day and age where the prevailing pop culture loves nothing more than to pit women against one another and provoke confrontation and antagonistic independence, Winnipeg born singer/songwriter Jodi King is a breath of fresh air. Non-confrontational and non-aggressive, Jodi is every girl’s best friend and every guy’s “girl-next-door”. Honest, sincere and intimate, the songs evoke KT Tunstall or Colbie Caillat. Jodi’s forthcoming LP, This Is Jodi King is a modern take on the female acoustic pop album, showcasing Jodi’s vocal and musical talents and refreshing songwriting skills. LP includes collaborations with Kyle Riabko and Colin Munroe. While playing in one of her favorite clothing stores in Toronto, the owner of Roots Clothing. Don Green, happened to be shopping and enjoying Jodi’s music. This lead to Roots offering their unflagging support to Jodi’s musical development; seeing her play in the major Roots stores and selling her CD across Canada. Music is quite simply what Jodi King was meant to do.

Marc Ross —

Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba Marc Ross found himself continually surrounded by music. Whether it was the household piano or church service every Sunday, music was a fundamental part of his upbringing.

Marc began his formal career at the young age of six when he was enrolled in piano lessons. Up to this point, his repertoire consisted mainly of Richard Marx and/or Bryan Adams.

From piano to saxophone to guitar, Marc found himself in high school where he started his first band, The Poetics. A short demo was made and Marc’s passion for the studio and for song craft was beginning to become evident. He also played the supporting role of “Pish Tush” in his high school’s musical production of “The Mikado”.

Following the summer of Marc’s graduation, he capitalized on the opportunity to work as a roadie on a two month cross-Canada tour with the now Juno nominated group Starfield. A lofty dream suddenly became closer to home.

In 2005 Marc fronted the Winnipeg based band Elyon, where he developed as a performer and a songwriter.

In his most recent work (2007) Marc has worked alongside Juno award winning producer Adrian Bradford and Winnipeg based singer/songwriter Jodi King on a six track EP titled music for The arborist. It was in this time that he found his passion lying not in his band, but in his solo work.

Marc is currently working towards releasing an EP that we can expect....oh yes. Expect it.
