To Sofie Lynn, music has always been the one constant in her life. Although having begun singing at the age of five, Sofie found what music meant to her while in college. Realizing how important music was to her she dropped out of school and pursed a career in it. Admiring the powerful voices of Carrie Underwood, Patsy Cline, and LeAnn Rimes, her songs convey personal emotions. Her latest release “Rooting for You” reminds listeners to stop rooting for an ex to come back, but rather root for them to succeed in life.
Always writing and collaborating with other artists, Sofie plans to release another single this October. Wanting to reach people from around the world, she encourages everyone to listen to her music on all streaming platforms and her website at www.sofielynnmusic.com.

Fresh to the Canadian Americana scene, Toronto's Gillian Nicola has released her new single "Night Comes to Call" from her forthcoming album "Dried Flowers."
Recorded in Toronto and featuring her longtime band, “Night Comes to Call” is an ode to self-care and contemplation - a beautiful take on solitary joys. Based in Hamilton, Gillian took an unusual route to becoming a roots based singer-songwriter. Trained in classical voice, she spent her teen years performing in a classic rock cover band, before launching herself into alt-country when she began writing songs. Her music ranges from acoustic folk singer-songwriter to textured and electric Americana and it reflects a knowledge and appreciation of the genre’s past and present.
With nominations for the Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award, Toronto Independent Music Awards and Hamilton Music Awards, Nicola has toured Canada’s east and west coasts. In addition, she’s opened for Amelia Curran and shared the stage for the JUNO Awards’ Love Song Edition with Tom Wilson, Terra Lightfoot, Tomi Swick, and Lori Yates. Engaging in her community is just as important to Nicola as performing. When she’s not focusing on her own creative process - she’s nurturing others by teaching voice and guitar, volunteering for Girls Rock Camp Toronto, sitting on a Musician’s Committee in Hamilton.
