Artist Bios

Following family singsongs and classical and jazz training, Megan Jerome has honed a soulful and eclectic style of music-making. Megan has self-produced five albums of original songs delighting critics, audiences, and  topping CBC and community radio station charts nationwide.

Megan connects with artists and audiences of all kinds – from art galleries, clubs and taverns to New York City’s Rockwood Music Hall. Megan has performed at Ottawa’s Jazz, Folk and Blues Festivals, and has won a Galaxie Rising Star Award.

“Listening to Ottawa’s own Megan Jerome, it’s clear that this is an artist carving her own path, drawing from a broad palette of influences while bravely averting imitation. Her delivery is much like her lyrics, disarmingly honest and inevitably charming and her joy in performing is infectious” Apt16


Alex Moxon is a professional guitarist based in Ottawa. Though his greatest love has always been jazz music, Alex enjoys listening to and performing in as many styles as possible. That fact is plain to see: he’s clocked many hours in the studio on rock, folk, jazz, fusion, afrobeat, big band, and funk recordings. 

Alex plays in numerous projects around town, including his original band The Chocolate Hot Pockets, Ottawa music scene staple The Hilotrons, live hip hop band 2REACT, Stevie Wonder tribute band The Four Heavies, the HML Trio (who you can catch every Thursday at the Brookstreet Hotel), and many others. In 2013, Alex received his Bachelor of Music with Honours from Carleton University (where he studied under local virtuoso Roddy Elias). He has performed at high profile venues including The Rex Jazz and Blues Bar in Toronto, Montreal’s The Upstairs, the Ottawa National Arts Center’s 4th Stage, and is a repeat performer at Ottawa’s International Jazz Festival.
