Art has been an important part of their life since they can remember, it has been an expressive and therapeutic tool in understanding herself, her identity, and methods of pedagogy.
Ash Ravens has made Ottawa his home in 2021 after living in Melbourne, Australia and Los Angeles, USA. Although he is new to the Canadian music scene, he is already making waves blessed with an instantly recognizable sound full of guitar-driven songs and virtuosic instrumentals...
RAS TURBZ- Also known as Turbz is a Reggae -Danchehall artiste of Barbadian descent. At the young age of 16, he discovered the art of chanting ( singing in his dialect) from being around his deejay friends. At the time it was more of a jumble and toying with words and cadences, but within that is where he found his passion for music.
