Gary Norris

Gary Norris
Gary is a luthier from Kelowna BC who launched his latest disc entitled “Luthier’s Dream” in Dec. 2010. Produced by Andrew Smith and Gary D. Norris, recorded, mixed and mastered by Andrew Smith at Lille Gard Studio in Kelowna BC, Gary doesn’t tour the globe all that often, so we’re lucky to have this deep-voiced folky songwriter with us to show off some his latest tunes.


Graham Ord
Singer songwriter Graham Ord has garnered respect internationally as a fine musician and engaging communicator. His live performances are always passionate and compelling leaving audiences wanting more. Graham has released seven solo CD’s to date together with several collaborative projects which have attracted accolades from around the world. He has also written and produced music for several other successful artists and has composed scores for short film and narratives. His production work with Cheryl Bear has won seven major awards to date including ‘Single of the year’ at the Aboriginal People’s choice awards in Winnipeg. His instrumental collaboration entitled ‘CHILL’ was nominated for a Shai award (Canada’s peoples choice music awards) for instrumental CD of the year. Graham now works as a full time musician and recording artist based out of Kelowna B.C. Canada.


Bethany Petch
A crystal clear voice with picking skills that would make most guitar players wonder if they should just stop playing. Basically, Bethany has some talent – check out her version of Black Bird by the Beatles she did for the TribeHouse Shabby Road Beatles Bash if you want to see the proof in the pudding.

Video is here.


Hayden Ward
Not only is Hayden one of the most humble artists you’ve ever met, he rolls with style. Being heavily influenced by artists like Bon Iver & Sufjan Stevens, Hayden likes to use his falsetto and nail covers by these (and others) like nobody’s biz. Just recently picking up the banjo, he is sure to be a name that is dropped more and more. He’s got something unique. Very unique. And did I mention that he’s really good?
