This year, turning “A World Away” from an indie music concert to indie music festival, we have a really amazing lineup and they are all excited to show you their original songs:


Abby J Hall: https://www.abbyjhall.com/

"Everyone has a story worth sharing, where I'm sharing musical stories, they are a little bit of reality and a whole lot of inspiration. Together we are singing in frequencies unheard of and are painting in colours we can’t imagine."


CJ Cooper: https://www.cjcoopermusic.com/

"A young songwriter from Guelph who plays guitar, piano and sings, focusing on acoustic pop with a rocker edge. Her mixed sets of classic covers and catchy originals will leave you to want more."


Renee: https://www.facebook.com/ReneeTheVoice/

"I'm still here, fighting and singing for peace for everyone, and I do it all with a smile and a glass of liquor! Enjoying the journey, the feelings are endless."


WAV: https://www.facebook.com/wearevariousband/

"WAV means sound wave, so does shorts for “We Are Various”. It means the variation of our music styles, as well as our attitude and willingness to be more creative. Over the years of chasing music passion, we released two albums and two Eps. Now we are preparing our new EP. Hope we could have the chance to collaborate with other artists and trigger sparks in music."


Arianna Mae: https://www.ariannamae.com/

"Arianna pairs her diverse musical training with her love of storytelling, writing her own songs as a way of experimenting with popular music in contrast to the classical regiment she was being taught. She started a Youtube project in the Fall of 2015 called #newsongsonmondays."


River Guard: http://uoftopera.ca/2018/11/06/river-guard-an-operatic-perspective/

"A Toronto-based jazz bassist and composer born in Cali, Columbia, who has been notably featured in Toronto's Jazz FM radio showcase program where he debuted his original composition "January".
