Dylan Watts

Dylan Watts is a talented young guitarist who styles his playing after his favourite player, Tommy Emmanuel. Dylan is the humble lead guitar player in a band I manage through RedLeaf Music, the Ottawa Djangobilly band, the Sick Sick Sicks.

You likely haven't heard Dylan playing solo yet but I guarantee you are in for a treat. Gypsy jazz, fingerstyle, percussive playing...he's got it happening!

Whether he is playing his original music or a cover tune, you will be so glad you are there to hear it all.  There is a lot of interest in this show. Arrive early! 

Dylan played live on The Brew on CKCU Monday, March 2nd. You can listen to his music here.

Amanda Cottreau

I first met Amanda at a songwriting workshop that Lynn Miles was presenting. Amanda's voice and her lyrics captured the ears and the heart of everyone in that small overcrowded room.

Over the years, this melody seamstress has been refining her hauntingly beautiful brand of folk, elevating sadness to triumph and desolation to celebration. 

"Canadian folk singer-songwriter Amanda Cottreau blends haunting melodies with themes of love and redemption. Her tunes are wrought with internal conflict but always seem to offer some sort of resolution through self-awareness. While she cites Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan and Sarah Harmer as influences, Cottreau has a voice all her own." ~ Collin Elliott, STEREOFAME ( Nov 02, 2010 ).
