With a mix of folk influence and a tad of blues and old country, James is an inventive singer/songwriter looking to share his music far and wide.

James had his first show at the age of 14 and has performed professionally since. From the United States to Canada and beyond, James travels wherever his music allows him to go.
James rides around in a 2018 Ford Transit Van that him and his partner are the process of converting into a touring machine! Having gone from a 1987 Ford RV that, “broke down in every state from California to New York,” they are excited to have some reliable wheels. You can even find the build out on his Facebook music page.

Jeff Catto: The Only Love Tour
For Christian Recording Artist Jeff Catto, this journey is about chasing after what God places on your heart. With unwavering faith, running towards wherever the Lord may lead, is the calling Jeff seeks to pursue.
The debut Album “Only Love” is a testimony of how Jeff has come out of the Lion’s Den. Looking back on ten years of failed music, broken promises, bad record contracts and disastrous attempts to make his own way. Jeff put down his broken dreams and laid them at the cross. Not realizing that God’s hand was present in all times. When you give your broken dreams to God, He will do amazing things you never thought possible.
His latest single “Every Season” was written by Dan Bremnes and Drew Middleton and went to number 16 on the CCRC charts and number 5 in Canada. With stops on The 700 Club, National airplay and steady touring, Jeff is sharing the message of forgiveness and God’s mercy everywhere he goes.
Jeff’s brand new single “I Have You” is a reflection on what life was like before he knew Jesus and what it’s like after.

The Soviet Influence
The Soviet Influence is a music group founded by Peter Snow in 2011. They have one full length release Boundaries, and two EPs, Check Boxes and Rust. These recordings were completed with a range of musical collaborators from southern Ontario. Based in Limehouse, Ontario, The Soviet Influence makes music influenced by such bands as Radiohead, Broken Social Scene, The Tragically Hip, Death Cab for Cutie, and Sigur Ros. The group’s songs are thematically linked to a loosely defined genre called “death-consciousness.” This is meant to be a mostly unserious poke at the existential crises that reoccur throughout Peter’s lyrics. As a songwriter, Peter is interested in speaking from inside the minds of various characters. He weaves themes of internal struggle, interpersonal problems, and political unrest. The band’s more recent work has continued along these themes while being especially political at times.
One review of Boundaries referred to the music as “more art than commercial.” While the Soviet Influence does generally aim towards artistry rather than commercial sensibilities, there more recent work has featured songs that are more widely accessible. The music itself utilizes some unusual structures and dissonant components, as well as experimentation with spoken word. Ultimately this is guitar-driven music with songs crafted around interesting or novel sounds.
