For his third full-length effort, the Toronto-based singer/songwriter turned to Cowboy Junkies co-founder Michael Timmins (no slouch as a songwriter himself) for production assistance, and together with Robertson’s regular cast of players they crafted a dozen songs that cast a light onto dark territory few artists dare to tread upon.
Late Mornings is much like a great short story collection, a work of art that one can become totally immersed in, and reveals new insights each time it’s revisited. With it, Craig Robertson has made an undeniable claim to be mentioned alongside Canada’s best contemporary singer/songwriters.Visit Artist Website

Tom Savage is what one might refer to as a triple-threat. One part truth-telling troubadour, one part death-defying guitar slinger, and one part Country Blues howler. Each facet of his formidable on-stage persona carefully crafted over a 20+ year devotion to the composition and performance of song. Tom is a true believer. A disciple of melody and harmony and tempo and timbre.Visit Artist Website
Toronto based Michelle Rumball is a maker and chaser of songs. She is a folk singer dusted with the jazz and blues of New Orleans. Her voice got her started as the co-founder and singer for roots act Grieveous Angels in the late 80's. A two year stay in New Orleans got her playing guitar, singing her own songs and telling her own tales. She is now three CD's into her solo career following the 2019 release of Years Behind. Her voice is transfixing as she digs into songs of her own or covers of everyone from Bob Dylan to Toronto songwriters Kevin Quain and Chris Staig.
As publicist Richard Flohil says 'Michelle Rumball makes songs. She chases songs by other writers. And she sings them all with joy and conviction and a smile in her voice'.Visit Artist Website

Victor was born in Plattsburgh New York and since has traveled much of the world producing outdoor television. Music has been a staple in Victor’s life for the past 20 years and recently he has experienced an overflow of original writing “I have a bad habit of putting my foot in my mouth. Music is an opportunity for me to collect my thoughts, put them down on paper, and then deliver them. Without music I think I would be in trouble a lot more frequently.” Playing in and around the Quinte area, Victor has been able to fulfill his passion for performing in his very occasional free time. He now lives in Quinte west with his wife Jodi.
