MAX LAYTON’S most recent CD, TRUE THE NORTH, is an album of Max’s original songs entirely devoted to Canadian stories and themes. About Max’s previous album, LEONARD COHEN said: “This is a terrific record! Can’t praise it highly enough!” Max also reads from LIKE, his latest book of poems. Dennis Lee called Max’s first book of poetry “a genuine pleasure to read” while, according to Joe Rosenblatt, Max “is the wittiest and most experientially sublime poet around in Canadian poetry!”

BOB COHEN began his career as a professional musician in 1972 in London, U.K., where he learned his craft in recording studios and on stage. Before moving to Toronto, Bob worked mostly as a guitarist while recording and touring with major artists such as Tim Hardin, André Gagnon, and Jesse Winchester…
ED ROTH is a self-styled “musician” who likes to brag about his “Yorkville roots” and his years in LA. He claims to have worked with Rick James, Raffi and Daniel Lanois and is personally to blame for tons of jingles and TV music. He owns a digital accordion and will play it if provoked. Be warned: His playing only sounds like music.
MARY HANSON arrived in Toronto from Australia in the mid 1980s and debuted her keyboard skills with the Pukka Orchestra at the Bamboo.
