LIZA: Born and raised in Toronto, R&B singer/songwriter LIZA (pronounced Lee-za) grew up in a traditional Ethiopian household and was inspired by her father’s musical background. After beginning to play piano and write poems at the age of 11, LIZA’s passion for music grew throughout the years, as well as her desire to create her own sounds. With pensive lyrics and alluring melodies, LIZA takes listeners on a captivating musical journey.
Shay Lia: Shay Lia is a Djiboutian-French singer-songwriter based in Montreal. This enigmatic songstress invites listeners into a universe full of sensuality, rhythm, and mystery. Deeply involved in every aspect of her music project, Shay unfolds a unique contemporary R&B performance, dancing on stage with particular fervor. Combined with her soul-pop sound, you can’t help but to start dancing to every beat trying to emulate her energetic presence.
What started as playing a grade eight party for his friends with a double-cassette deck has turned into a profession of DJing across the globe. Sean Caff mixes a wide variety of genres, from classics to contemporary.
