J.P. Cormier’s lyrics and melodies illicit every emotion you can muster as he paints pictures of loves lost, towns disbanded, fishermen killed by their trade and the most important moments of his own life. He’s won 12 East Coast Music Awards, 5 Music Nova Scotia Awards, and a Canadian Folk Music Award. His album, Another Morning, was nominated for a Juno in 1998 and has since sold nearly 100,000 copies. J.P. has won more than 30 awards in 20 years of fiddle, guitar, banjo, and song-writing competitions. He begins an instrumental and you realize that this man is not just a singer or a songwriter. As his fingers fly, with such speed and precision, upon each instrument in turn, you get another picture—one of pure joy and boundless energy; total spiritual abandon bordering in its execution on genius.
Singer-songwriter Jake Peters is an award-winning guitar and banjo-picker, anything with strings is fair game to Jake. His latest additions includes the oud, sas, dombra and barabat – all hailing from the Middle East. Jake has worked with Pavlo, Cindy Church, Dick Damron, Pam Tillis, Lisa Brokop, Randy Travis, Randy Bachman and Dennis Agajanian. His finesse not only lies with his creative ability – styles include bluegrass, blues, celtic, classical, folk, gospel, and Spanish – but also displays his talents as a fine, meticulous Luthier. His ability as a musician is a delight to watch, hear and feel.
