A fixture of Toronto's DIY scene in the 1990s and 2000s, Eric Chenaux has travelled through punk, folk, jazz, and contemporary music outfits in his career. Recently he has engaged his unique guitar technique and sharp lyricism in more overtly song-based, and occasionally poppy, work. 'Slowly Paradise', his first solo album since 2015, was released in March.
An American based in London, Ashley Paul creates colourful, textural, intuitive music using saxophone, clarinet, voice, guitar, bells, and percussion. Having studied music at New England Conservatory, she has since been extensively involved in improvised performance, playing with artists such as Rashad Becker, Anthony Coleman, Loren Connors, Bill Nace, and Eli Keszler.
