THE BREAK DOWN AND MAYA KILLTRON
The sizzling sounds of five-piece dance/funk/hip hop band The Break Down get listeners up on their feet with a soulful, super-tight rhythm section featuring some of Toronto’s finest players. Powerful, distinctive vocals bring a positive message to the melodies.
Maya Killtron has been performing and recording since she was 17 with some of Canada’s most respected artists including King Sunshine, Juno winner Slakah the Beatchild and God Made Me Funky & Divine Brown, MuchMusic Video Award winners Down With Webster and Aboriginal Music Award Nominee Iskwe. Killtron tours extensively, bringing her unique dance party combo of pop, electro and hip hop to venues and festivals including the Montréal Jazz Festival, Club Opus in Paris and Massey Hall. Also an accomplished DJ, Killtron’s unfiltered banter and explosive lyrics are as distinctive as her music.

MELISSA CAMERON AND LOW LEVEL FLIGHT
Melissa Cameron is a versatile artist with roots in Canada’s west coast. Her debut solo EP, “Back To Me” was released in October 2011, and is a sweeping collection of sultry melodies, delivered with velvety precision. She is currently working on her full-length release from Toronto.
Low Level Flight is a quintet fronted by Canadian Idol Season One winner Ryan Malcolm and featuring Hugh Allen, James Rooke, Brandon Merenick, and Sebastien Duhaime. These self-described “hook-laden rockers” are in the process of bringing their inimitable sound to their second album, Through These Walls, which melds personal experience and insight for philosophical and yet direct and compelling listening.
Coming out for the Indie Series provides the perfect opportunity to also sample Paintbox’s delicious menu. The Toronto Star in a recent review lauded Paintbox Bistro not just for the creativity and technical proficiency of its food (and the good value it offers), but also for its social mission: the Bistro is “helping to revitalize Regent Park, one scrumptious roasted heirloom carrot at a time” by hiring marginalized individuals and training them in the finer points of operating a restaurant.
Reservations at Paintbox Bistro are recommended for all performances by calling (647) 748-0555 or online at www.paintboxbistro.ca.
