Presented by Encore Ottawa

Based in Ottawa, Five+None has evolved from a fun cover band to writers and musicians finding their own unique sound, complete with blistering rock, amazing guitar riffs and poetic lyrics. The band originally met as students of Ottawa’s Bluesfest School of Music and Arts in 2015 and soon started playing local events and festivals such as Bluesfest, Kemptville Live Music Festival, and CityFolk. Five+None rapidly gained industry support from people such as Alan Cross (“We need more female-fronted rock, give this a listen”) and DJ Noah of LiVE 88.5 FM (“... a really promising young new Ottawa band”).
