A songwriters showcase gives the audience a rare chance to get inside the process that drives the craft that is writing a song. The participants will trade songs and speak about what each tune means, where their inspiration comes from and their unique methods in getting to a finished product.

$l33py_boy_bazinga (otherwise known as Jaxon Lalond) thinks alot about stuff and sometimes writes songs about it as well. He is the lead singer for Bluegrass band The Local Group and banjo player for Jake Vaadeland and The Sturgeon River Boys. His solo debut comes after many years of performing as a multi-instrumentalist in different musical outfits, recording, and touring across Canada and internationally. His original songs are semi-serious, semi-silly, caked in layers of irony and influenced by many things including folk, rock, hip-hop, hyperpop, the internet, science, nature, life on the road, and feelings that are sometimes hard to understand

Lachlan Neville is a singer/songwriter from Rocanville, Saskatchewan a small town on the plains of western Canada. He grew up listening to country and folk music and developed a strong connection to it early on in life. At the age of 8, he started to play guitar and even wrote some terrible songs. Later on in life, after gaining an interest in the likes of Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, Tom Waits and Jason Isbell, he began to (with the support of his local music community) hone his craft as a guitar player and songwriter.

Colin Farnan is an Artist/Singer Songwriter who resides in Saskatoon, SK. His songs are steeped in the
folk and blues music traditions of the past with a keen eye to the future…

Aryn Murray was raised in Saskatoon and cut his teeth hanging around the Ness Creek community, playing youth stages and open mics; busking around Saskatoon’s core, attending Irish sessions and bluegrass camps with his folks. Aryn got into the bar circuit and released an EP in 2015 (Smoke stack). After playing on his own Aryn went on to form the Celtic influenced folk group SlashPile and toured western Canada
