Headliner: Coleman Hell
Hailing from the Toronto Canada artist collective Sideways, Coleman Hell has a knack for pushing the boundaries of existing pop frameworks and delivering memorable choruses to boot. Coleman Hell has crafted a genre-defying Monster of a hit with his affecting single “2 Heads” which passed the 65 million global streams milestone on Spotify and topped music aggregators Hype Machine and Indie Shuffle soon after its release. “2 Heads” poked a hole in the denser pop stratosphere as one of the more provocative offerings of 2015.  Now Coleman Hell is back with his new single “Fireproof.”

Check out their hit, "Two Heads"


with guest Scott Helman

In 2014, Scott Helman released the song “Bungalow” as the first single from his debut EP Augusta.  The track introduced a fresh new voice to the musical landscape and his versatility led to tours across Canada, playing with the likes of Tegan and Sara, Shawn Mendes and Matthew Good.. Scott Helman debuted his full-length album, Hôtel de Ville, on May 12, 2017. The album’s first single is the irresistible pop alternative track Kinda Complicated which applies breezy, catchy songwriting and winking-lyricism.
