A convergence of creativity. A confluence of artistic flow. A mingling of multi-talents. When two seasoned singer/songwriters like Henry Lees and Lawrie Ingles combine efforts, the results are bound to be as tasty and satisfying as your favourite old mixtape or new playlist.

Toronto born and raised, Lawrie is one busy musician – singing, playing guitar, keys or bass in any number of bands at a time, including Elton Rohn, David Storey, Tristan Avakian, Southern Sky and Tyler Ellis and the Eddy Line. When he’s not playing, Lawrie’s out supporting live music, taking in more live shows than anyone we know. He’s also a talented songwriter and his wordplay-laden lyrics offer a trusting glimpse into his emotional and intellectual depth.

Originally a westerner, Henry fronted Calgary's popular original pop/rock band The Household Saints for a decade. Henry also performed nationwide with actor, musician and Order of Canada honouree Tom Jackson on his Huron Carole benefit tours, sharing stages with exceptional and lauded talents like Shannon Gaye, Kristian Alexandrov, Natalie McMaster, The Rankins, Melanie Doane and Charlie Major. Now calling Toronto home, Henry has dived head first into crafting and performing acoustic pop packed with heart and soul, collaborating with notable GTA artists such as Chris Antonik, The Prince Brothers and now, with Lawrie too.
They singularly shine on their own, but together, Lawrie Ingles and Henry Lees are uniquely and brilliantly entertaining.

ELANA HARTE enjoys a successful career as a writer, performer and producer. A gifted vocalist and guitarist, the Montreal-born songstress has released a number of CDs and has been featured on numerous compilations/soundtracks.

She is the sole producer of M-FACTOR MONDAYS & M-FACTOR REDUX, a long-running weekly Toronto Indie showcase, featuring local, national and international talent. She was also the founder and co-producer of BARE BONES AND UP FRONT, a showcasing series hosted by the Toronto Centre for the Arts.
