Vallens //

Robyn Phillips created VALLENS in late 2014 to serve as her performance alter ego, secretly constructing her own world of music alone while playing guitar and gigging in various Toronto projects. The Vallens moniker allowed Robyn to introduce her own sound within the scene under the influence of namesake David Lynch's Dorothy Vallens. In the past year Vallens has expanded to a full band (Colin Morgan - drums, Marta Cikojevic - synth & keyboards, and Devon Henderson - bass) who have shaped and influenced Robyn's further writing. The project debuted live in 2015 and quickly captured the attention of music critics, promoters, and the local music scene.

Joyful Joyful //

Joyful Joyful was born in Peterborough and now lives in Toronto. Their songs draw from sacred and folk vocal traditions and modern drone/electronic experimentation. With dense, deep-meditation soundscapes, they build new worlds in which mesmerizing, melismatic singing speaks only truth - about miracles, about love and sex, about our fallen world and that nameless aching longing in our chests. Surely these are the last days; take your neighbour's hand and say, "I feel ya."

The Red Papaya is a physically accessible location.
