There are a lot of festivals out there, some you might know about, some...

Here in Toronto the summer season is broken up by the generously spaced out...

  • I was really looking forward to seeing what Son Little would do with his new album. His first full length self-titled release established him as someone looking to rework the blues and R&B canon in a new way (or to travel some forgotten byways). That album was  spectral, spooky, and a little freaky. It called […]

  • Over the years FME has established itself as a prominent music festival that very few know about. This ‘underground’ festival brings together industry folks from across North America and Europe, in addition, off course, to the Quebecua who take planes, trains, and automobiles to join in on the festivities. This year marks Canada’s 150 anniversary […]

Northwest Music Fest is also a venture of Willamette Week, a local paper in Portland. Last year the festival sold out, […]

Each venue featured a set of themed curated performances from across the globe. Here are some of our highlights. INTER CONNECT México brought together Omaar and Mexican Jihad on the ground level of […]

  • Australia’s Danny Harley’s musical past begun playing pop punk at the age of 12 which, he points out, was mostly to be in with the cool kids. Over time this journey lead him to learn to play musical instruments,...

  • A few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to speak with producer and a DJ Marc Kinchen (MK). Kinchen’s career took off in the early 90’s, working with the top artists and producers and making a name for himself in...

  • Last Wednesday, White Reaper continued their tour behind their second studio Album, The Worlds Best American Band at Portland’s world famous Doug Fir. The unapologetic foursome played “a collection of songs including the one that they’re probably most notable...

  • Hot off the heels of a recording stint in the grassy knolls of Ireland, Montreal’s Caveboy made a recent stop in Toronto to play at NxNE’s Port Lands. Veterans of some of Toronto’s largest music festivals, including Canadian Music...

  • Fresh from the March launch of his first full-length album, Coastline, Montreal’s Geoffroy is picking-up speed throughout the electronica universe. Spending nearly two years meticulously crafting his LP, along with co-producers Gabriel Gagnon and Max Gendron, Geoffroy – who,...
