Bio to come...
Justin J. Moore is a professional session vocalist whose voice has been streamed more than 500,000 times, a songwriter and composer with 10 original songs under his name and many more as a ghost-writer, and a multi-instrumentalist producer capable of mimicking the sound of a full band in his bedroom.
Justin is the son of two professional Juilliard-trained opera singers and attributes his talents to their diligent tutelage. Justin grew up training his voice while also amassing an extensive knowledge in musical theory. His career as a professional vocalist began at the age of 11 when the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra hired him as a soloist. Justin was the lead singer and bass player in multiple bands and has appeared on stage more than 250 times.
Justin was influenced by countless singers spanning a wide array of genres including Steve Perry, Elton John, James Blunt, Bruno Mars, Bryan Adams, John Legends, Mario Lanza, Pavarotti, and many more.
Parks & Hustler
Parks and Hustler present original tunes and classic covers with panache and style. With a mix of guitars, mandolin, and harmonica, they join their strings and voices to present intriguing and at times intoxicating musical experiences.
Kerry Parks is a singer-songwriter, storyteller and “a poet of plain-speak.” Keith Hustler is a craftsman and a creator with a keen eye and an ear for the subtly profound.
Their repertoire spans decades. They cite influences as varied as Mississippi John Hurt, Pete Seeger, James Taylor, Bob Dylan, Leon Redbone, Fred Eaglesmith, and John Prine.
Kitchen Sink Pocket Orchestra
Composed of principal players of the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra, the Kitchen Sink Pocket Orchestra is a mixed string and wind quartet designed to introduce orchestral instruments in accessible and non-traditional settings.
The Kitchen Sink Pocket Orchestra’s diverse repertoire appeals to audiences of all ages and includes arrangements of much-loved orchestral works, mash-ups of traditional folk and fiddle favourites alongside recognizable tunes from more contemporary artists including Lady Gaga, Simon and Garfunkel and Metallica. There is something for everyone on this program – that includes everything and the Kitchen Sink!
Josh + Bex
Josh + Bex are a Canadian Dream Folk duo out of Kelowna BC. Josh, with his Eastern soul-folk vibes and Bex, her melody-driven West Coast influence, together they make music that captures their vulnerabilities and draws listeners into their world with a transparent and heart-forward presence. Josh + Bex won the ‘’Inside the Festival’’, emerging new artist contest in 2019 where they performed at the internationally acclaimed Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival. In 2020, Josh + Bex won bronze in Best of Kelowna (Kelowna Now), giving them wide recognition throughout the Okanagan Valley.
Their sound is a unique blend of their individual histories and personal truths along the way to figuring out who they are as people, as well as song-writers. With their spellbinding harmonies and honed yet rustic sound, their craft meets at the intersection of hope and sorrow – giving space to let their songs explore light, love, pain, and the awe-inspiring wonders of Mother Earth that surround them.
Josh + Bex released their self-titled EP in October 2019.
