Sarah Wilkinson and Robin Jupiter Live at Mulberry


After pursuing music nearly 30 years, Robin Jupiter has, in his own words, definitely DEFINITELY finally broken through!!!! With a Tom Waits-style voice matched by an inexplicable burst of onstage presence filled witg energy, soul, and heartfelt passion, this wild young performer lifts up every hand in the room clapping, and brings people joy and tears with his pop-punk rock theatrical style of deliverance through his songs of friendship, love, pride, and pursuit of hope in this world of depression and anxiety and rise of suicide. "Music has always been a part of my life. My voice has always been my outlet, and songwriting, my diary. I recorded my first album “Honest Release” at 19 in beautiful Bolton Ontario at Watershed studios. Two years later I recorded “Bryan Brown” out east in Moncton NB, right after a pretty traumatic break up. Normally a guy will get a song or two after a relationship, but this guy got a whole album! So, after moving back home (Toronto ON) I released a little EP entitled “YOU”. Filled with a plethora of my thoughts and feelings. Its been six years since that record, and I’m ready to show the world something new. With my album “Willingly”, After years of being labelled a “folk” artist, I’m putting down the guitar and and focusing on telling the story with my voice, and letting my incredible band do the rest! (Robert Purcell-Drums, Alex Purcell-Guitar, Duncan Stan-Bass) This album certainly has a wide range of genres. We go from Gospel to Reggae to Blues to Electronic to a three part string arrangement. I don’t like putting myself in a box with one style, so I just wrote what came out. I was so lucky this time to work with my incredible writing partner Robert Wilkinson. Along with my amazing Producer Jason Cabanaw, we were able to make my dreams a reality. This story is very close to my heart, and I’m happy and willing to share! Peace & Love, Sara Wilkinson"

Pat Maloney Live at Mulberry


“Soulful, honest, hilarious and smart” – Fingers on Blast That’s Ottawa, Ontario’s Indie-Folk artist Pat Maloney. The happily independent singer-songwriter encapsulates the Canadian spirit of a humble, passionate storyteller, with an often self-defaming sense of humour. In a rich baritone, he sings heartfelt “story songs” based on his experiences on tour, his personal life and his place in the big blue world. Three full-length albums deep since 2013, Pat’s catalogue is inclusive and free of pretention. However genre hopping, he draws cohesion from master storytelling at his live performances. It’s hard to pin down Pat’s musical influences. Although he considers himself akin to adult alternative songwriters like Father John Misty, Ryan Adams or Tom Waits, he refuses to betray the influence from his years as a drummer in punk & hip-hop outfits. Stepping away from full-length album efforts for now, he is poised to release two digital singles in 2018. Twice the winner of the Canadian Organization of Campus Activities (COCA) Singer-Songwriter of the Year award, Pat Maloney is known in national folk music circles as a hard working road warrior on a never-ending tour. In a short four years since taking up music full-time, Pat has played a thousand shows all over Canada, The United Kingdom, Ireland and the United States. He has had several songs hit #1 on a number of Canadian campus folk charts. “Considering an endless access to a century of popular music, and my love for a wide variety of styles, it would be unfulfilling to pigeon-hole my creativity into one genre of music. I write what comes out naturally without stuffing it into a box. I’m not really a folk singer, I just sound like one sometimes.” - Pat Maloney

Jamie Shea Live at Mulberry


Jamie Shea writes songs that need to be written. His listeners immediately relate to his well crafted melodies and lyrics that vibrate in sympathy with shared human experience. Shea takes a sensitive and contemplative approach to the frailty and grace of love and loss while singing with such soft affection as to soothe the very emotions he expresses. Shea majored in jazz at Mohawk College, studying composition under the guidance of renowned composer/arranger, the late Dave McMurdo. His experience writing and performing jazz, folk, blues, garage, and psychedelia gives Shea an extensive palette of colours to apply in bold strokes across his sonic landscape. Born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, Shea is proud and honoured to be part of the city’s rich musical tradition.

Charles Goodrow Live at Mulberry


"When I was still living in Amsterdam there was a time when every now and then some guy would pass by my window late at night on his bike, drunk as a lord, singing on top of his lungs. He sang such soulful anthems and how well they fitted the nightscapes of the city! I fell in love with his voice but I never recognized any of the songs. There was no pattern in when he would come. I often ran outside but was always too late to catch him. And then he disappeared. Not much later I moved from Amsterdam to Leipzig, Germany and still I often thought of these songs. I could not let them go. At one point I tried to write them anew. I never managed to get close but did end up with a handful of songs that are anthems, odes to the city at night in their own way."
