Jamming for Justice
March 22, 2017
Craig is a Canadian singer-songwriter. Known throughout Canada, Craig is developing a following throughout North America and into Europe. With guitar in hand, Craig can turn any setting into an intimate affair. Infusing his music and lyrics with a uncompromising humanism rarely seen in today’s production-heavy climate. Craig Cardiff builds landscapes of sound using live digital loops, bringing the room to a hush. Edged, folk, beautiful, melancholy and left leaning, one song breaks your heart, and the next one puts it back together.
Chérie is an emerging musical act on the Ottawa-Gatineau scene. The band has been attracting a following since 2015 based on their captivating performances at venues like The Black Sheep Inn, Petit Chicago and the CityFolk Festival. Chérie’s music, born from improvisation, is honest, dynamic, and evocative. Performances feature songs in English and French, with vocals in harmony, guitar, bass, brush drums, and ambient electronics. They are currently writing and recording material for a debut full-length record which will be released later this year.
