Militia Vox , aka the Dark Diva and the Black Queen of Metal, is ferocious, badass, loud,  honest, existential, hardworking and beautiful.  A multimedia genius in film, music, concert production, film soundtracks and television she delivers a message of power, confidence, rebellion A classically trained pianist since the age of 7, MilitiaV grew up to become the central figure in bands including Judas Priestess , Swear On Your Life, and Disciples of Astaroth before  going  solo in 2013. Named one of  the nation’sTen Fiercest Black Female Rockers,” she has new music out and new stories to tell. This year she received three Global Music Awards for songwriting, lyrics and best Female Vocalist.  Her new single "NYCTOPHILIA"  is now out, following the released of her three-song EP, ISOSCELES.

Named after the Italian word for “Love”, Ammoye produces beautiful, popular funky shimmering reggae that kicks ass and stands out in a male-dominated genre And people love it and they lover her.  The smoothness of her voice draws listeners in, and the power of her lyrics holds them as she effortlessly sings about life, love, and justice. At the age of 5, Ammoye knew her calling was to perform music. Raised by her grandparents singing in church choirs and a gospel group, she moved Canada for college nd  perfected her style. It was there that she organized fellow artists into a collective  blending the soulfulness of Jamaica with the edge of drum & bass, the sinewy grooves of R&B. She sang with Michael Buble and Arkell won several Junos, . She calls herself a “soul rebel” and that soul and that  rebellion shows through in her new album,  The Light.
