Best in Show: Show in Best

Fun and Positivity. That's the SJ Riley mantra. SJ Riley has been singing and writing songs for as long as she can remember. She started playing guitar when she was 14, and has more recently taken up the piano, which adds another element to her music.

SJ has an impressive vocal range and has no fear performing for thousands of people.  SJ has been spending more time on her songwriting and creating music videos. With live music back she is very excited to continue pursuing performing on large stages!

Not a child yet not a man, Adam "The Kid," Tario, is good at one thing and one thing only; writing his own bios for shows. At the tender age of 27, he is finally doing something with his life, and releasing all his songs about ducks, Swiss chalet sauce, and the greasy streets of Peterborough. His solo performance on May 14th won't be one you'll want to miss, because it's not one you'll want to see either, but like a 20 person poutine punch party outside whistle stop on a Wednesday after dollar beers, you won't be able to look away. You might also call the police.

Lisa Canivet is a singer, instrumentalist, and composer who has played since age 7. Known to friend and confidante A DUBZ as the “Faerie godmother of elegrunge,” Lisa weaves uplifting and melancholic singing with resonant and artful piano playing. With experience as a back-up vocalist, synth, flute, and shakey-egg player, Lisa has composed original music for theatre since 1997. Local to Peterborough since 2017, Lisa has the distinction of being invited to audition by the Producers of The Voice France and possessing Mozart-sized hands. Lisa Canivet is a graduate of Mohawk College, where she studied classical piano.

A DUBZ - was so named by a silver foxed prep cook who put 77 duckets in his tip envelope up where the Belly usta be. Born Aedan Shaughnessy, A DUBZ mixes satire, parody, bars, singing, ballads, and pop covers, with cathartic exploration of spiritual and romantic themes.
