Ashley doesn’t stop. As the nucleus of STMV she keeps things going- it’s her job and she’s damn good at it. After years in the music industry: organizing shows, creating music videos, music photography, mentoring young musicians (the list goes on!) she has created something quite special and grand. Ashley has lent her talents , passion and gifts of organization to toronto's music community. Nurturing bands, gassing up up- and-coming talent, connecting artists with resources all while giving back to our beloved venues… is there anything she can’t do? Well, she can’t dance… but we still love her. This “Band Mom” as her growing roster of bands like to call her, is a force to be reckoned with. Not just a stunningly gorgeous face she’s has in fact become an integral part of Toronto’s music scene. Be sure to say hi to her at the next show. She’ll be the one dancing….

Tina has a background in fashion and
marketing. At first Tina may come
across a little quieter than her band
mate Maddy, but look out: she
knows how to push her way into a
conversation. We know she will
bring her social media skills and
her kind nature to help build S.T.M.V. Excited to be part of a “group of badass ladies” Tina proved she’d fit the bill the day she met Ashley. Pushing all the boys and competition out of the conversation to make sure her and her band got to make an impression. Badass? We’d say so! In fact, so badass, we’d be lucky for her to drive herself into any one of our conversations - every day of the week!

From a young age Maddy has been
called to the stage, performing in
a number of different arts. Maddy
knows the Toronto art scene like
that back of her hand. Excited
to work with the community,
Maddy’s infectious personality
helps connect and build our
happy little (big) S.T.M.V. family...
but don't be fooled; Maddy is a
spitfire who goes for what she
wants! What we love about
Maddy is her magnetic and
bubbly personality - a
background in cheerleading
will do that to you...and what's
scarier than a cheerleader
turned rocker bitch?!
