Juliana & Jesse are a brother-sister duo based in Montreal, Canada. After each pursuing individual musical endeavours, Jesse James, one of the most gifted guitarists on the Montreal music scene, and Juliana, a true, unique and colourful songwriter, have come together to craft a rich, mature sound that is folk-based, but influenced by their interest for various musical styles. The duo performed on the French language program La Voix in 2016, and has since continued to showcase its talent in venues across Quebec and Ontario, playing over 200 shows in its first two years. Juliana & Jesse travelled to Vancouver, B.C. to record their debut album In Time with Juno Award nominee producer Sid Perez. The album is due for re-release in spring 2018 and will include bonus tracks.
Fronted by Kevin Harvey on lead vocals, The Durham County Poets delve into a variety of styles and genres. Influenced by a broad range of artists from The Band to Dire Straits, Leon Redbone to James Taylor and Neil Young, they have managed to put it all together to create their own musical style. Featuring David Whyte on electric and acoustic guitars and vocals, Neil Elsmore on acoustic guitar and vocals, Carl Rufh on double bass and vocals, and James Preimel on drums and percussion, the band mixes an eclectic blend of blues, folk and rock, with tinges of country, gospel and swing tossed in for good measure. Amid a very busy touring schedule across Quebec, Ontario and the northeastern United States following the release this past April of their latest album, Grimshaw Road, we are delighted that the ‘Poets’ are making time for a return visit to the Side Door!
