When listening to the hauntingly beautiful melodies on 'Wherever I Go', the debut full-length album by Rose-Erin Stokes, you can’t help but be transfixed by every lilting note, every phrase and every plucked string. There is a quiet stillness to some songs, and within others one can sense an emotional tumult just rippling under the surface.

Highlighted by an artistic acumen and an amazing ability to evoke emotion, 'Wherever I Go' is demonstrative of a songwriting craftsperson at work, with music,words and vocal performances that connect to the hearts and spirits of all who hear them.

Stokes is currently working on her sophomore full-length album with producers: Jim Bryson and Andrew Sowka.

21-year-old Josh Berry is a Canadian Musician, Guitarist, Vocalist, and Songwriter who is most widely known for fronting Canadian rock band The Rivers that has opened for National and International Touring Artists. Now beginning a more recent pursuit of a solo career, Josh is continuing to perform and record his own music apart from playing guitar in North Bay's Country-Rock band Roadhouse and doing session work for various artists.

Josh is known for playing his hand-made guitars including his hand-made Telecaster. Growing up on Eagle Lake just west of the small-town South River located in Northern Ontario, Josh got his start performing for cottagers, campers, and local music enthusiasts who would invite him and his siblings to perform concerts in the local music scene.

At the earliest age, Josh began shadowing his mother Jill DiSomma (trained opera singer) who has performed in musicals and has sung in many places all over the world. Josh is inspired by many artists and bands from Country, Folk, Blues, and Rock n' Roll.

Beginning his study of guitar at the age of 8 years old, later on, Josh later began to sing more seriously for bands and perform for larger
audiences. Josh’s voice is often compared to the style of Dallas Green (City & Colour). Josh likes to cite Slash, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and more recently Joe Bonamassa for his guitar-playing inspirations.

"Bringing people together and playing with amazing musicians I'm lucky enough to call my friends are some of the things that drive my love
of music."
