Roberta Battaglia is a dynamic, up-and-coming young vocalist from Toronto, Canada. Born in 2009 into a musical family, Roberta began her singing career at the astonishing age of three years alongside her father, Alessandro Battaglia and together the duo has graced many stages from local community performances to galas and noted charity events. A second-generation Italian Canadian, Roberta is fluent in both English and Italian and performs a diverse repertoire of music in both languages ranging from ballads and top-40 hits to high-octane pop.

She has studied her craft via academy singing instruction and has already contributed to commercial productions while receiving recognition in noted competitions such as Hidden Talent Toronto. Her special independent appearances include a performance at Idea City presented by television mogul, Moses Znaimer as well as Toronto’s Breakfast Television where her rendition of Lady Gaga’s Shallow ‘broke the internet’ resulting in over two million views in only two weeks – an outstanding accomplishment for a nine year old.

Snotty Nose Rez Kids is a First Nations Canadian Hip-Hop duo of Haisla (Indigenous) descent from Kitimat, BC. Rappers Yung Trybez and Young D formed the duo in 2016, releasing two albums in 2017 with their second, The Average Savage, winning them them Best Hip Hop Artist at the Western Canadian Music Awards (WCMA’s), cemented them on 2018’s Top 10 list of the coveted Polaris Music Prize, and landed them a 2019 Juno Nomination for best Indigenous Music Album. The group toured heavily in Canada with appearances in New York City, Seattle and Darwin, Australia. They quickly gained notoriety for their energetic, inspiring and thought provoking performances.

Coming off a busy 2019 releasing their third album, TRAPLINE, touring North America, Australia and Mexico, landing stellar news pieces from Complex,Vice, Exclaim!, Okayplayer, and The FADER, and wrapping the year with multiple awards and millions of streams, SNRK were poised for 2020 to be their breakout year. Complex named them in their ‘Ones to Watch for 2020.’ After announcing their first 23 city US headline tour, COVID hit and all plans were abandoned. They released their debut EP, Born Deadly, and landed various sync deals with network shows Trickster and Resident Alien, and feature films Monkey Beach and Inconvenient Indian. Their 2019 single, Boujee Natives, achieved over 1.5 million streams and became their first music video to reach over 2 million views.

As COVID restrictions began to ease in 2021, SNRK were back in studio, creating their most personal project to date, LIFE AFTER, released in October 2021. The release landed them on the covers of Exclaim Magazine, Range Magazine and The Georgia Straight. Their hit single, Uncle Rico, debuted on BET Jams and went into rotation on MTV. After a year and half SNRK were back on the road for leg 1 of their Life After Tour with 13 shows in the US, and have announced a second leg for 2022 with another 20+ dates in Canada and the US.

Picking back up where they left off in 2020, SNRK are set for 2022 to be their breakout year.

Kardinal Offishall is a rapper, record producer, DJ, and record executive. Often credited as Canada's "hip hop ambassador", he is regarded as one of the country's best hip hop artists and is best known for his distinctive reggae and dancehall-influenced style of hip hop. 

Born and raised in Toronto, a city where cultures of the world come together, Kardinal Offishall’s moniker of “Mr. International” is as fitting as it is catchy. With his notable twist of hip-hop music, spirited stage performances and captivating persona he stands out on a world stage.

Incredibly original and widely received, Offishall has trekked across the globe performing in some of the most acclaimed stadiums, arenas and festivals where he, without fail, exhilarates fans with one-of-a-kind musically vivacious mash-up performances. From Prince’s Trust Fashion/Rock show that was broadcast to over 400 million viewers in over 70 countries worldwide, to performing multiple times at the MMVA’s, Offishall has become a notable figure amongst the top ranking in the music industry.

From his earlier onsets in Toronto’s underground hip-hop scene in the 1990’s, Offishall trademarked his signature tongue-in-cheek rhymes that garnered him a following in the already established hip-hop musical arena. Entwining patois and a dancehall style with singles like “Bakardi Slang”, “Ol Time Killin” and “Maxine”, Offishall had fans quickly clinging to the likes of his songwriting and distinctive hip-hop style that, today, has earned him musical success and rap respectability across the continents.

A significant moment in Offishall’s musical career was in 2008, when he joined forces with American singer and rapper Akon with his Kon Live Music/Interscope record label. With their musical union they gave birth to international chart topping singles, selling millions worldwide, including “Numba One”, the Lady Gaga “Just Dance Remix”, “Beautiful” and, undoubtedly, the smash hit “Dangerous”, which earned Offishall the title of the first ever Canadian rapper to chart a song on Billboard’s Hot 100.

As a four-time MMVA and Juno Award winner with multiple ASCAP and Socan awards, it’s no doubt that Offishall is one of the hardest working artists in the business who continues to deliver hits with endless collaborations on his discography.

For 2016 the musical virtuoso, performer, producer, entertainer and businessman is set to bring a new Kardinal Offishall experience as he transitions into hip-hop’s beloved pillar of DJ-ing. “Mr.International” himself will deliver his euphonic inceptions worldwide keeping fans electrified with his sublime musical sets that continue to crown him as one of Canada’s top musical tastemakers to trek the international market.
