Monsieur Coccinel is a bilingual folk/rock/pop group that makes music that is eclectic, amusing, cute, educative and nostalgic, making use of catchy riffs and poetic language.
The band was first formed in 2009 to compete in the Chicane électrique, where they won in the "most professional" and "best song" categories. Encouraged by their success, original group members Alexis Flower and Dominique Lemoine continued composing and were later joined by Renée Saurette, Cédric Lanthier and Ryan Tomko.

Slow Spirit, formerly the Eric Roberts Quintet, was born in a basement rehearsal room at Brandon University, and have been exploring a genreless plane of music ever since.
While the jazz studies program at BU fed these young musicians’ hungry fascination of bebop, blues, and standard form, the band’s original compositions, fluid group dynamic and brave outlook on sound fuel the creative drive of a generation raised on hip hop, dance beats, electronic sound and digital sharing.
