Vancouver Sleep Clinic
Tim Bettinson
-from Brisbane, Australia

-Australia's Vancouver Sleep Clinic is the solo project of ambient, electronic singer/songwriter Tim Bettinson. Born in 1996, Bettinson grew up in Brisbane listening to his father's classic Fleetwood Mac and Eagles records before discovering more modern artists like Bon Iver and Sigur Ros in his teens. Inspired, he began writing his own songs, recording with a keyboard and computer. In 2013, he uploaded the song "Vapour" online, where it caught on, drawing thousands of plays. A follow-up EP, Winter, also garnered considerable attention and by 2014, Bettinson had begun playing live shows, including making an appearance at Austin's SXSW festival. In 2016, Bettinson delivered Vancouver Sleep Clinic's full-length debut, Revival, on Sony.

Krishan Abeyatunge
Krishan Abeyatunge, Katie Jay Baer, Mie Araki, Sia Mozaffari and Lucas Florio.
-from San Francisco, CA

-Lyrical fiends, please take out your cutlery! Drawing on influences like Leonard Cohen, Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes) and Sufjan Stevens, Krishan Abeyatunge mixes melancholic songs about vulnerability with activist tunes and tales of bemused wizards and psychedelic gnomes.

For the less lyrically inclined, his band--The Mind's Eye--envelops with lush layers of synth, bass and drums.  Each player is a potent and magical world to get lost in.

Krishan is a psychotherapist who inhales suffering and exhales music.
