A legend in his own right, Vancouver-based Barney Bentall has been creating music since 1978. Throughout his career, he has released three independent albums and seven studio albums. In the late eighties, Barney Bentall formed The Legendary Hearts. Their self-titled debut reached Platinum status in Canada, featured three hit singles including “Something to Live For”, and garnered a Juno Award.
In 2000, Bentall switched gears completely and moved to British Columbia's Cariboo region to operate a cattle ranch. With this incredible shift came a great change in perspective, which was the impetus for his 2007 solo release, Gift Horse. "Although I spent a lot of time working on the ranch, I never fully removed myself from music", says Bentall. "I still played, but it might have been the lack of applause that brought me back," he laughs. "We all have different paths. My time on the ranch was what I needed. It kept me grounded and made me stronger. It also made me appreciate music that much more. It solidified my journey as a singer, songwriter and musician."
Barney Bentall continues to move through life with his wife Kath, an ever-increasing tribe of in-laws and grandchildren, and a new studio album titled Flesh & Bone.

We Three Queens is comprised of three of Canada's finest jazz vocalists. Well-known as solo performing and recording artists, Vancouver's Jennifer Scott, Karin Plato and Kate Hammett-Vaughan have been singing holiday music together for almost a decade. Their ever-growing repertoire includes classic carols, holiday favorites, carols from around the world, and even some original songs.
In 2012 they recorded a CD called Happy Holiday. The CD sales go to support the Vancouver Firefighters Burn Charity. The Queens, as their fans call them, were a huge annual hit at the now-defunct Cellar Jazz Club, and this year they are branching out to perform at Blue Frog Studios.
Since their earliest days as a trio, We Three Queens have been featured annually at the lovely Christmas Eve Jazz Vespers service at Vancouver's lovely Saint Andrew's-Wesley Church.
