Youth X Canada Artists in alphabetical order :



Rapper SawBuck and beatmaker DJ So Nice are Buck-N-Nice — a Canadian hip hop duo hailing out of the National Capital Region that do not fit the profile of most artists in the genre. Unlike others, their musical concerns are beyond creating the next club hit, flashing money, or keeping up with the latest trends. Their songs are about life experiences, the community they’re surrounded by, and the general influences that moulded them to the artists, and people they are today.


The duo have been busy from the get-go. Since forming, they have released a successful full length album titled, which launched them into the festival circuit, as well as headlining tours, and opened the doors for several collaborative works with varying artists within the local and international hip hop community.

Kieran Howes


Kieran has been performing on the Ottawa music scene for over 10 years now. Starting off with alternative-rock band Jamin Aura, and later fronting First To Three. He is currently drumming for Barrington Club while focusing on his solo acoustic material and performance.


Always striving to make others happy through music, Kieran works as Assistant Director at Monkey Rock Music, a place that specializes in introducing the love of music to children from birth and well into their toddlerhood. He has also worked as a peer helper and leadership camp leader, helping youth open up about their feelings.


Influenced by a range of music from classic rock, indie pop rock, folk rock and more, Kieran is a force to be reckoned with.


Malinda Aiello


Known as the girl with the blue guitar, Malinda is a singer/songwriter who lives to touch the hearts and souls of others through her music. The richness in her voice is uniquely complimented with a timeless quality and an inherent ability to tell stories through her songs. As music has always inspired Malinda, she hopes to give to others, what music has given to her.
