Toronto-based songwriter Michelle Willis fuses the nuance of early 70s soul, singer-songwriter, and modern folk / jazz. Her lyrics are set to almost hymnal harmony, warm, rich and lush tones, and a sea of background vocals. She spent the last five years touring and recording with artists such as Zac Brown Band, Iggy & The Stooges, Laura Mvula, Three Metre Day and Nikki Yanofsky to name a few. After touring with Snarky Puppy across Europe, Michelle’s debut solo record “See Us Through” comes out on May 13 on Snarky Puppy’s GroundUP label, distributed by Universal.

Mike ‘Maz’ Maher has made a name for himself as a founding member of the multi-Grammy award winning group Snarky Puppy. Although he functions as a trumpeter with the pups, it would be remiss to categorize Maz as a ‘closet singer-songwriter.’ His songs incorporate folk, rock, soul and jazz traditions with a seamless mastery that is perhaps only overshadowed by his ability to captivate audiences with the soulful intimacy of his voice.
