With performances by:

TRS

TRS is an Ethiopian-Canadian singer/songwriter born and raised in Vancouver, BC. Her style often alludes to elements of the hip hop, neo-soul, and R&B classics that came before her, blending nostalgia with a current sound. With her rich tone and smooth delivery paired with expressive and raw storytelling, her music is made to make you feel.

 

Mauvey - https://www.mauvey.com/

Born in Ghana, West Africa, and raised between the U.K. and Vancouver, artist and songwriter, Mauvey, filters his unique batch of alternative music with Hip Hop, R&B/Soul, and 80s inspired synth-wave always alongside his message: Love. “My message will always be Love” says Mauvey, who has designed his projects to distribute Love through the creative narratives of intentional songwriting, intelligent melody, and hypnotic beat.

Mauvey has been influenced by artists like Michael Jackson, Kanye West, Oumou Sangaré, Prince, Childish Gambino, Labrinth, NAO, The Weeknd, and Andre 3000, as he goes on to state: "I am inspired by artists who made contributions so significant that they or their music will never be forgotten”.

 

Iman Wamboi - https://www.instagram.com/imanwamboi/

Kenyan born, Canadian bread, Iman Wamboi is a vocalist, actor, and model based in Vancouver, BC. Her love of music began at a young age, having been exposed to her parents favourite artists and her fathers love of live music throughout her childhood.

By the time she reached high school, she could often be found in the library during lunch hours, scouring the CD section for classic rock records. During that time, she discovered and fell in love with artist such as The Doors, Neil Young, David Bowie, Joni Mitchell, and Janis Joplin among many others. Her love of music inspired her to pursue training at a young age in guitar and piano, which she still plays from time to time.

Despite her passion, a career in music was not number one on the list of Wamboi’s pursuits, having first established herself as a well known commercial actor and model in the city. She has done work for brands such as Lululemon, Cadillac, Pepsi, Laneige, and Lush to name a few.

It was not until quarantine that she virtually met and began collaborating with producer Chin Injeti. Together they released their first project “Yellow Hearts” which Wamboi resourcefully recorded using her iPhone. From there on, the pair decided to continue working together and are currently working on Wamboi’s debut EP set for release this spring.
