Peterborough, Ontario born & Toronto based ELYSE SAUNDERS is blazing a trail in country music. A contender in 2013 and 2014 for CMAO’s Female Artist of the Year, she was also nominated for a Toronto Independent Music Award in 2012 for Best Country Artist. Recently awarded FACTOR’s Juried Sound Recording funding, Elyse’s evolving sound & lyrics will be showcased in a new album. Her new single at country radio is called Just Like Mama and was written by Elyse, Peter Linseman and multi-hit songwriter Tim Taylor. In the strong spirit of her give-back attitude, Elyse created the JUST LIKE MAMA Mother’s Day Fundraiser in conjunction with Mississauga’s Sheridan Centre Mall, and fitness facility, Curves Erin Mills. Taking center mall stage on May 10th, Elyse's concert and storytelling will bring awareness and raise much needed funds with total donations benefitting The Women’s and Children’s Health Centre at Trillium Health Partners, Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga, with emphasis on the creation of an emergency paediatric triage area within the hospital’s emergency department. 

JESSE SLACK grew up in Peterborough, Ontario listening to his Mom sing country songs around the house. He learned to play guitar with the hope of becoming a rock star and first got involved in music with his twin brother Jake Slack in a duo group called The Slack Brothers. After exploring different paths, Jesse continued his endeavors in music by moving to London, Ontario where he attended the Music Industry Arts program at Fanshawe College. Jesse recently released his debut EP Going Drinkin’ Tonight with producer Jody Anderson. He has also joined forces with fellow Music Industry Arts alumnus Steve Rivers to play many shows across Ontario. Jesse has been spending productive time in Nashville this year to begin writing for his next album.
