BPAC’s ‘Live & Local’ Artist Development Initiative supports the development of local artists by providing them with professional support and performance opportunities in our world-class venue, while also offering mentorship by connecting them with established industry professionals.
Allie Reddon is an indie, folk-rock singer-songwriter from Burlington, currently based in London, ON. Since releasing her debut EP “Root Rot” and her most recent single “Texting Strangers”, Allie has been performing shows with her band and writing new music that she can’t wait to share with you!
Fin Wall is a Hamilton-based singer/songwriter, working and releasing under The Commune. Often backed by his 5 piece band, The Commune brings aspects of roots-rock, pop and contemporary folk into a brand-new sound which leans on a strong lyrical backbone.
Wearing influence on his sleeve, the poetry of Shane Macgowan and Townes Van Zandt impacted the young artist early on, though the energy and urgency of a life spent in punk bands has yet to leave him. The Commune’s debut EP Juma is available everywhere as of August 2023
Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Royal Wood has established himself as a true musical talent. Since being proclaimed “Songwriter of the Year” by iTunes, Wood has continued to evolve and hone his musical craft while maintaining a unique identity. His eighth full-length studio album, 2022’s What Tomorrow Brings, was recently up “For Your Consideration” for BEST FOLK ALBUM at the 2024 Grammys. With this album Wood reaches new emotional depths and delivers his most powerful collection of music to date. Crafted alongside world-renowned writer/producers Linda Perry (Adele, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera) and Jamie Scott (Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber), the album draws from deeply personal points in Wood’s life, effectively capturing the emotion of these moments.
Royal Wood has received multiple JUNO nominations, 5 Canadian Folk Music Award nominations, and a #1 added song at Hot AC Radio. Having seen high-profile features on programs such as Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, his catalogue has amassed over 18 million streams worldwide.
