Pawnshop Diamond’s distinct Canadiana folk-pop is the backdrop for songs of love, family and all things optimistically morbid.
The song “Cabernet Sauvignon” won Music BC’s Songbird West contest in 2008 and is presently on rotation on CBC Radio 2 DriveLISTEN to Pawnshop Diamond. WATCH their music video.

Songstress Beth Southwell will be joined by blues guitarist Jesse Waldman for a  set of acoustic folk and country tunes.

“The great thing about Pawnshop Diamond is the band would fit in nicely in a fancy jazz club, back porch, folk stage, or mainstream indie club.” – Knox Road

Christie Rose weaves thoughtfully developed imagery and stories with a seamless mix of musical styles (including folk-country, blues, ballads, rockabilly, and doo-wop).  The subtleties of her lyrics and melodies demand your attention, evoking a wide variety of moods. This wonderful singer/songwriter will be performing with Noah Walker on guitar and Michael Simpsonelli on drums. To hear a sampling of songs that will be performed, you can visit

Awesome.  This girl is authentic, and has an undeniable twang; I’m still mystified by the depth of her range.  Christie is obviously seriously trained, as well as naturally gifted–“
