 Jesse Northey 

In a few short weeks, Jesse Northey will be taking his new record, Onion Knight, on the road for a run of tour dates beginning in Edmonton on August 11. Full tour dates can be found below. “I'm so thrilled to be going back on the road in Western Canada,” says Northey. “I lived there for so long and some of my best pals and strongest musical memories are from touring BC and Alberta. In addition to a grand reunion, I'm stoked to be on the road with my musical pal Chloe Doucet who shares some musical inspirations with me. Her song “Satan Loves You” is sooooo good and it's going to be fun to rock out together with our band featuring Matt Cooke (Guitar) and Dylan Ryan (Drums).

Today, he’s sharing the new live video performing “Hold On” and “Both Eyes Closed” at the Dandelion Mansion. “We had an all-star band team featuring Dani Nash, Matt Cooke, and Chloe Doucet (all excellent artists in their own right) and we did a cute little takeaway video in my backyard,” says Northey. “Not only was it an excuse for me to rake some leaves and clean up my yard, but it set a really casual tone that made us all feel really comfortable and relaxed. Bee Pethick was the director and came in with her friend Molly the day before to plant some flowers and set the stage. Bryce Zimmerman is an excellent cinematographer and together him and Bee made an extremely tasteful takeaway video that cuts in some other elements of Toronto to turn this into a reflective piece.”


Northey has maintained a parallel career behind the curtains of the music world. His work as an engineer and producer has afforded him plenty of time to hone his studio skills, and his place on the High Priestess Publishing roster has led to songs appearing in far flung places such as the Amazon's documentary on Pete Buttigieig, former Indiana Mayor turned presidential candidate. As the leader of Jesse & The Dandelions, he has shared stages with Hollerado, Said the Whale, and July Talk, and toured extensively in Japan. And since 2020, he's been the man behind Victory Pool Records, a record label and management company, helping to shepherd an impressive variety of acts such as Witch Prophet, The Deep Dark Woods, Marlaena Moore, Ghost Woman and Ombiigizi.

Alberta-Based Folk Rock /// "Bury Me By My Family" Out Now 
Chloe Doucet
Knee-deep in the 21st Century, when autotune has overridden the wail of the wah-wah pedal and the tactile splendor of a 45 has been replaced by the non-entity of a digital streaming service, Toronto-based singer-songwriter Chloë Doucet seems to have been hand-selected by the ghost of George Harrison to reinvigorate the classic notion of guitar-driven rock & roll. While what we now refer to as “classic rock” tends to feel plodding and steeped in nostalgia, Doucet’s incandescent vocals, scrappy guitar riffs and meditative, often whimsical lyrics look toward a fresh & rebellious future while simultaneously paying homage to her beloved lo-fi past.
An ardent Beatles lover since early childhood, Doucet’s love for the guitar feels like more of a journey than a choice. After cutting her teeth as a member of the cleverly-named garage rock duo Side Hustle, she has since found her niche as a subtle yet powerful solo artist a la Harry Nilsson or Carole King; through recent collaborations with members of Toronto’s Zeus, Chloë remains entirely in control of her own vision. Hers are sparkling, contemplative melodies, corduroy-textured & saturated in shades of butterscotch & goldenrod, the kind of songs meant to be listened to on headphones in moments of late summer solitude. Her latest single, “Satan Loves You,” is no exception, pairing an addictively sunshiney melody with vivid metaphor and her trademark lyrical introspection. “Music is like magic,” Chloë says herself— a magic that her uncanny, understated ability to capture manages to elude time or place, instead defining a moment that is entirely her own.
