Genre: Folk

Hailing from Uashat mak Mani-Utenam, Spencer St-Onge gave his first concert at the tender age of 10. On top of participating in Mashteuiatsh’s Aboriginal Games, he also attended over 10 editions of the Innu Nikamu festival and performed on the television program Tam and was selected on Chic Choc for the most beautiful gesture of solidarity for his childhood friend who lost his parents. Having produced a first CD at the Makusham studio, he’s now working on releasing a second album.

Brittany Manitowabi

Genre: Pop

The summer of 2014 saw Ms. Manitowabi gather stature as a talented emerging artist as she performed at the N'Swakamok Aboriginal Day Music Showcase and as the opening act for Digging Roots live at the Ruins in Wikwemikong. She has also been invited to perform at Crystal Shawanda's Homecoming Concert for the past eight years. At just 20, she has been singing ever since she could talk. Influenced by Shania Twain, Crystal Shawanda and Johnny Cash in younger years, her main style follows her roots of country music. However, today's musical freedom has Brittany merging popular music into this style. Brittany is self taught in guitar and other instruments.
