XENIA DUNFORD (Boston, MA) Americana, Folk, Jazz, Rock, Roots, Singer-Songwriter; Similar to: Norah Jones, Colbie Caillat, A Fine Frenzy, Corinne Bailey-Rae

With a daring and adventurous mix of jazz, indie and classic pop influences, singer-songwriter Xenia Dunford has played countless shows across the U.S. from Boston to Los Angeles. The buzz is starting to grow for Dunford after “Killing Kind of Love” from her debut EP was used in ABC’s Revenge Season 2 Promo. The excitement will only increase in 2013 once people hear her debut full length album His & Hers. www.xeniadunfordmusic.com

SHAMEEM (Australia) Funk, Jazz, R&B, Soul. Similar To: Alicia Keys, Sade, Corrine Bailey-Rae, Michael Jackson.

Shameem Taheri-Lee was born in Australia to a Chinese-Malaysian father and an Iranian mother. The diversity of her heritage has not only contributed to her exotic looks but has influenced her distinctive eclectic approach to music. Her unique fusion of 90s-esque R&B/ soul with 70s funk and a twist of jazz is imbued with personal and conscious lyrics. Think: Alicia Keys meets Sade in a jazz club, with a little edge of Michael Jackson. www.shameemmusic.com

GO FOR THE EYES (Calgary, AB) Alternative, Psychedelic, Rock; Similar To: Arctic Monkeys, The Dead Weather, Queens of the Stone Age

Calgary's Go For The Eyes exploded onto the Alberta music scene in 2008 and have since recorded an album and 2 EPs. Blessed with a DIY work ethic, infectious stage energy and an ever-increasing fan base, the band is currently on their third Canadian tour. With influences such as Arctic Monkeys, Band of Skulls, The Dead Weather and Queens of the Stone Age, Go For The Eyes are sure to impress venues and audiences from coast to coast. www.facebook.com/gofortheeyes

BLACKCHORDS (Australia) Alternative, Indie, Rock; Similar To: Radiohead, Nick Drake, Coldplay, Snow Patrol

Melbourne, Australia’s Blackchords have received widespread critical acclaim since their debut. 2013 is off to a great start with the recent record deal signing with ABC Music, who will release their 2nd album A Thin Line. The band spent most of 2012 working on the album with Grammy Award winning producer David Odlum (The Frames, Gemma Hayes, Josh Ritter) and released the first single ‘Dance, Dance, Dance’. In Jan 2013, Blackchords released the second single "Oh No" and anticipation is sky high for the album's release in April 2013. Blackchords songs have been featured in the US television shows Shameless (Showtime), Cougar Town (TBS), Teen Mom (MTV) and Being Human (NBC). www.blackchords.com

MY EXCUSE (Greece) Alternative, Indie, Rock; Similar to: Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Coldplay

Greece modern rock band My Excuse released their first album in 2003 via Universal Music, however, it was their later work with producer Ron St Germain (Bad Brains, U2, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Soundgarden) that established them as one of the best upcoming bands in Europe. In the summer of 2012, My Excuse released their first international single “Silent Revolution” from the upcoming album also produced by St Germain to be released later in 2013. www.myexcuseband.com

JENNY MACDONALD (Halifax, NS) Blues, Folk, Roots, Singer-Songwriter; Similar To: KT Tunstall, Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones

Two-time Nova Scotia Music Award nominee, Jenny MacDonald tours 100+ shows each year. Bye, Bye, Mr. Bluesman, MacDonald's sophomore release was nominated for Blues Album of the Year at the Nova Scotia Music Awards, and AVRadio claims it is “...a trip into the best part of music, rock, blues, roots you name it, all perfectly packed into one song.” Since the release, MacDonald has shared the stage with East Coast famed musicians such as Gordie Sampson, Charlie A'Court, Garrett Mason, and co-wrote the charted #1 East Coast Countdown song, “Flip Flops” by Slowcoaster. www.jennymacdonald.com
