BC-based singer-songwriter, Talel McBriar, merges traditional folk with alternative rock influences to produce songs that ring with honest lyrics and raw melodies. Evident in her debut EP titled Flood Season, Talel’s writing distills her experiences into authentic and insightful ballads. “Talel effortlessly conveys her discomfort with the present times in a way I once thought required three or four times her life experience,” says Josh Lehman, producer of The 6 Mile Sessions. In 2018, her original song titled ‘October’ won her and her bandmate, Ella Korth, a Kootenay Music Award for ‘Best Original Roots Song.’ Her debut EP release titled Flood Season was released in July 2022 via indie label Catapult Recordings.

Semi Athletic’s specialty comes in the form of impressionistic songwriting paired with tasteful production and guitar riffs, otherwise known as “the tone zone”. As a Canadian who grew up in Prague that calls Alabama a third home, his output is a synthesis of time spent digging through record crates around the world and working in Muscle Shoals recording studios.

Live performance highlights include opening for John Paul White at The Wise Hall and a TV appearance on Music Room by Televize Seznam.
