    The Pack AD

    Destruction and melody, acid wit and bruising vocals—this is the Pack A.D. Singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller have made a sound so gigantic and empowering, that it’s easy to forget it's just two people behind this brilliant and carefully constructed havoc. Shredding and pounding their way through every song, the Pack A.D. swallows you whole inside their blend of heavy psych-pop/garage-rock. Their lyrics are entirely human and complex, tackling real issues with darkly humor or raving about sly crusades against stupidity. Becky and Maya are relentless and riveting, playing with the kind of freedom that makes everybody in the room vicarious rock stars, even if it’s just for the night.

    Buffy Sainte-Marie

    Perhaps you know Sainte-Marie from her 1960s protest anthems, open-hearted love songs, incendiary powwow rock, or the juggernaut pop hit “Up Where We Belong." Whatever the case, every song and every era has revealed new and distinctive shades of an artist revered for her pioneering and chameleon ways. There was no mold from which Buffy Sainte-Marie emerged; she created her own, ripened from experiences in both her head and her heart.

    Her latest record, Power in the Blood, is an honest reflection of Sainte-Marie. The hallmarks of her catalog – the eclecticism and compassion she brings to each album, oblivious to genre boundaries and production trends – are in glorious bloom here. It’s the Buffy you know and love, and it’s geared for contemporary audiences.

    The Burning Hell

    The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of Canadian songwriter Mathias Kom. Having been on the road since since 2007 the band has played everywhere from festivals like Glastonbury and Dawson City to bars, living rooms, abandoned bunkers, and a mental asylum in rural France. They run the gamut from introspective folk to hyperactive rock and taking the audience on a supermarket-cart ride through hooky, upbeat pop songs, dark ballads about pet euthanasia, and anthems for barbarians, economic conferences, and love. Set to release Public Library, a new album of distorted story-songs, in April 2016, and they’ll spend the better part of the spring and summer in their natural habitat: the tour van.

    Duchess Says

    Duchess Says was created in late 2003 when four members of the Church of Budgerigars decided to collaborate together on a common musical project to promote a new kind of church and spread the message of the Duchess (or spiritual budgie). This Montreal band presents audiophiles with a collection of intense "moog rock" songs that pull influence from new wave and punk with artistic cues coming from cinema and visual arts. Duchess Says has the mandate to decontextualise the rock and to promote simultaneously their Church on the way.

What is MoSo?

MoSo is a combined event that is part conference and part music festival. It's based on the idea that like-minded people will come together and add their ripple to create a bigger wave.  This year, MoSo is taking things a step further by going well beyond our roots of technical and social media ideas.  Sure, we’re still about social media marketing and digital development, but we’re also diving into the deep end with graphic designers, writers, musicians, software developers, artists...anyone that considers themselves creative.  

 

MoSo is  a convergence of creativity.  Share, collaborate, and cultivate your ideas into something truly amazing.
