                                is a Toronto based trio rooted in the folk tradition. Their original songs feature complex vocal harmonies and intimate storytelling that captures the attention of their audience and keeps them rapt. Their shows are full of playful banter and dreamy love songs, but the trio balances the sweetness with feminist anthems and calls to action. They aren’t afraid to lean into harmonic tension, and rhythms that challenge expectations, creating the story of each song through musical devices as well as poetic lyrics.
Lunar Bloom consists of Jocelyn Regina, Kelly McNamee, and Brittany Robinson, and their mission statement for Running Deep is to crack themselves open and create a space for others to be held in their own vulnerability, shining light on a pathway to healing.
