Artists performing

Portraits of Us is a duo from the Fraser Valley, made up of married couple Jason and Anna Ratzlaff.

Since forming in 2016, they have performed original music with the Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra, played on many Canadian stages, and completed their first western Canadian tour.

Their sound is clean, melodic, and filled with intricate vocal and instrumental parts. Portraits of Us released its debut album Guard Your Heart in August of 2017.

The Kwerks, comprised of Langley-based couple Laura and Ryan Koch, perform unique, snappy folk-pop with hints of bluegrass and rock.

They released two EPs in 2016 and were featured in a Dominion Lending Centres national commercial campaign.

The Kwerks scooped up a Fraser Valley Music Award nomination and made it to the national top 25 in this year’s CBC Searchlight Competition.

Their songs have been picked up by radio stations locally and nationally, and their live performances are infused with sassy dance moves and funny stories.
