Armistice is the collaboration between Beatrice Martin (Coeur de pirate) and Bedouin Soundclash frontman, Jay Malinowski. With music and lyrics written, the pair headed to Los Angeles late last summer to record the album at Big Game Lodge with El Bronx. The EP was produced by Jay Malinowski and Joby J. Ford (The Bronx) and mixed by Jeff Chestek (The Roots). Martin and Malinowski first worked together artistically when Beatrice lent her voice to the track, “Brutal Hearts” on Bedouin Soundclash’s fall release, Light The Horizon . The song was proclaimed a highlight of the album by critics and the public alike. Out of this came the idea to join forces to create Armistice.

The Jon Cohen Experimental is the brainchild band of Montreal musician & songwriter Jonathan Cohen. Having been a key member of such diverse and popular bands as The Dears, The Social Register, JF Robitaille, and many more, Jon formed his own group as a response to over a decade of service to the prolific Montreal music scene. The band was formed in the spring of 2006 when Jon began carving out his own musical path.

The Belle Game was formed in July of 2009 by locally established artist Adam Nanji and his fellow musicians Andrea Lo and Alex Andrew. Adam had released a studio EP the previous September. When he was asked to play a show at a venue in Vancouver, he asked Andrea and Alex to join him onstage as his back-up band, but as the trio realized during their first day of practice, this line-up would evolve into something so much more than a solo act. The three of them decided that they would head into the studio only a month after becoming a band, and they proceeded to record a 4-song EP entitled “Inventing Letters”. They released the EP on November 10th, 2009, and it can be purchased by clicking here! They quickly gained notice in Vancouver with the release of this EP while playing venues all over downtown.
