Meet the Winterval bands


TALK is eccentric, flashy and colourful, and he’s crafted a sound equally unique. He launched himself on a rocket with his debut single “Run Away to Mars”. Originally written at 3am on a lonely night, the song has connected with listeners all over the world: earning 150+ million of streams, rising to #1 on the Spotify Global Viral 50, and reaching multi-platinum certification around the world, including in Canada, Sweden, Norway and more. Now, TALK is preparing to release his debut album Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees. Executively produced by hitmaker Justin Tranter, the record will showcase his diverse talents, ranging from emotional ballads to massive stadium anthems full of love and passion.

Rare Americans

“We think this is the future of storytelling in music” – proclaims frontman James Priestner. Rare Americans are not just a band, but animated storytellers of the real and raw. Their music, Crooked & Catchy, serves as an anthem for those wrestling with life’s toughest corners. From playing in front of empty rooms to selling out in 13 countries, a Juno nom, and half a billion streams later – their journey is just as unconventional as their music.

Rich Aucoin

Halifax Nova Scotia artist, Rich Aucoin, employs experimental recording techniques on his albums, and is noted for audience involvement and interaction at his performances. Aucoin has released five critically acclaimed studio LPs and EPs and singles and has won several Canadian awards, including the Sirius XM Indie Awards’ Emerging Artist of the Year.
