MARLON CHAPLIN – Following the May 2016 release of critically acclaimed debut EP ‘Wanderer By Trade’ (with contributing members of Zeus and Lemon Bucket Orkestra), Toronto native Marlon Chaplin continues to evolve. Moving from folk-centric roots rompers to angular rock and psychedelia akin to The Strokes and Beck, recent singles “Annabelle + Someone” and “Fossils” display a breadth of cohesive eclecticism rarely found.
Barbarosa is an indie rock project formed by Patrick Beedling in 2011. After cutting his teeth as a solo artist in St. Catharines’ downtown music scene, Beedling recruited local players to bring his songs to life. The music—eclectic, and moody— draws from a range of influences, including folk, alternative, art-rock, and indie. With a rotating cast of members the group has remained active in the Ontario club scene, playing regularly in Toronto, Hamilton, and Niagara.
