DJ MEDIAFRENZY – http://djmediafrenzy.blogspot.ca
Dj mediafrenzy spins a wide variety of danceable music including rock, jazz, blues, funk, motown, indie and hip hop straight from vinyl.

Lindsey Burns
Lindsey Burns is a singer/songwriter from Stratford, Ontario. She has been playing music for several years and is making a name for herself in Southern Ontario and even Nova Scotia. Passionately playing originals or covers which she makes her own, Lindsey is sure to entertain. With her dynamic voice and capturing stage presence, she seductively attracts the attention of her audience. Lindsey listens to music from all genres, making her a joy to see. She has a soulful “growl”, and yet a graceful vibrato. She might surprise you with a rap or sooth you with her sensual voice. While she enjoys most music, her favourite genres to perform are folk, bluegrass, southern rock, blues, alternative and politically charged roots music. Lindsey has an almost intimidating confidence but a light heart and a gentle soul, sure to inspire. http://www.myspace.com/cranberry1988

Amanda Lewis
Amanda Lewis writes and plays songs – sometimes sad, always heartfelt.  Her songs deal with loss and the hard living that goes along with it. She left her Newfoundland home for London, Ontario, and spent the next decade watching people drift in and out of the university town

Miss Sixty Lashes
Miss Sixty Lashes has been performing in the London community since moving here in autumn of 2011. Originally from Alberta, she has over twenty years of dance experience including ballet, jazz, tap, hip-hop, Highland dance, lyrical, bellydance, and pole fitness. Throughout the year, she can be found onstage teasing the good people of London at various events and shows. This year, Miss Sixty is proud to be performing as part of LadyFest’s lineup as well as for General Population’s upcoming Pride celebration.

Linda B.

Linda B. scrawls lyrics on small slips of paper, finds melodies while singing on her bicycle, and records first drafts of songs on an answering machine, usually from pay phones mid-cycle ride. She plays guitar and sings with local indie rock band “buttonfly”, who are celebrating 8 years playing together next month. buttonfly will release their 3rd CD in the autumn. Their CD “Hot Drambuie Nights” is available at Grooves. When Linda is not performing with buttonfly and Panic On Pluto, she works as a librarian (and sings & reads to babies and tots — with her guitar close by).

Jessica Vanden Boomen
“Upon first listen, one is immediately struck by the angelic voice of this young aspiring female vocalist. She composes her own music making her way around the six string calmly and fluently. Her lyrics are a focal point, as they allow us entry into someone with an observant eye and the stunning ability to articulate her mind through song.”
-The Blessed Undead
