Gabrielle est une auteure-compositrice-interprète d’une fraicheur incomparable.
Native du petit village de Bourget (ON), elle a timidement fait ses premiers pas dans le métier de la chanson. Elle saute de concours en concours avec l’espoir d’un jour devenir une chanteuse. C’est lors d’un de ces concours qu’elle capte l’attention et l’intérêt de la maison de disque Lafab Musique. Cette jeune artiste découvre, non sans une certaine hâte, les rouages du métier.
C’est durant l’été 2012 que ses efforts portent fruit. Elle prend son envol et participe à l’émission JAM, animée par
Patrick Groulx, qui l’amène sur la scène Loto-Québec des Francofolies de Montréal. Avec le vent dans les ailes, Gabrielle lance son premier album Papillon (fév. 2013) qui fut suivi d’une tournée promotionnelle (Ontario, Nouveau-Brunswick, Québec). Suite à ceci, elle fut nommée au Gala des prix Trille Or 2013 soit dans les catégories Interprète féminine par excellence et Le prix Radio-Canada pour la chanson primée. Quelques mois après, Gabrielle est nommée au Gala country de St-Quentin dans la catégorie Chanson de l’année SOCAN et elle reçoit le prix Étoile Galaxie , lors du Festival Western de St-Tite, dans la catégorie « Auteure-compositrice-interprète Pop/Rock/-Folk ». En janvier 2014, Elle présente une vitrine remarquée à Contact Ontarois et remporte le prix Coup de foudre Salut! et avec ce prix, elle donne plus de 130 représentations de son spectacle. Au printemps 2015, lors du Gala des prix Trille Or 2015, Gabrielle remporte le Trille Or dans la prestigieuse catégorie Meilleure interprète féminine . D’ailleurs, Papillon fut en nomination dans 6 catégories.
Ça ne s’arrête pas là pour Gabrielle puisqu’en août dernier, elle fut invitée à chanter lors de la cérémonie d’ouverture des JEUX PARAPAN AM (diffusée sur CBC au Canada et plus de 35 autres pays). L’année 2015 se termine bien puisqu’elle est choisie Talent à découvrir à RougeFM (novembre). De plus elle se retrouve le BUZZ Énergie du mois de mars 2016 avec sont deuxième extrait PAS PLUS QUE ÇA. Il faut aussi noter qu’à ce jour, Gabrielle a près de 200 000 views cumulatifs sur YouTube.
Son nouvel album intitulé « Ton Garage » réalisé par nul autre que John Nathaniel, réalisateur aux nombreux hits tel que Placebo d’Alex Gaudreault, sera lancé le 2 mars 2016. Dans cette oeuvre, Gabrielle Goulet nous revient avec une confiance et une fraicheur nouvelle dans un style très actuel à la fois country et pop. Malgré ses débuts timides, cette charmante fille de campagne a apprivoisé la bête qui l’habite depuis sa toute première note et elle est devenue une jeune femme qui assume sa place pleinement dans ce monde artistique francophone.

Gabrielle Goulet is a singer- songwriter of unparalleled freshness from the village of Bourget (ON) where she shyly took her first steps into the art of song. During a singing contest she captured the attention and interest of the Lafab Music record label. Her new album entitled “Your Garage ” directed by none other than John Nathaniel was launched on 2 March 2016. Gabrielle Goulet performs with confidence and new freshness in a very modern style which is both country and pop.

Drivyn is a hard rock band that laid its foundation in the mid 1990’s and has been performing in Ontario at various venues since.

After years together, the band, hailing from Timmins, combined their efforts and released a self produced, all original album in 2009.  The album is a shared effort, with each member of the band sharing writing responsibilities and credits.

Drivyn offers driving rock songs, both original and cover. Another band from Northern Ontario, Drivyn is set to provide some of the close-to-home talent that this year’s festival invites, for those looking to see a band that perhaps they have seen before.

3 p.m.  – Global Village 

global village 3

 

Global Village was first formed back in 1970  at that time we had a booking agency called Youth Sound Associates from New Liskeard. they booked us all over the north  from Hearst to North Bay, to Irquois Falls to Cochrane and South Porcupine. But the two cities where we played the most were Timmins and Rouyn. We played every high school  and arena several times. It was the most enjoyable time we ever had. We were always so well received in Timmins. We played in the North till 1974 when the band broke up and we moved on to other bands.

The band reformed  4 years ago and has always wanted to go back to Timmins to play at the various venues. Our times in Timmins when when we were a young band had an everlasting effect on us and we are proud to be again part of the Timmins music scene.
