KALEIGH MASON

Posted on May 28th, by Music Inform in Artists You Should Know About. No Comments

With the release of The Exorcism, Kaleigh Mason brings a new feel to a classic genre by utilizing gospel, soul, and pop together all without losing the emotional platform great songwriting comes from.

Like other songs from Kaleigh’s catalog, the single is catchy and crosses into an r&b and classic doo wop aesthetic. The Exorcism is a story told about a girl, from the first person perspective. “It is about a girl so heartbroken, feeling so much pain that she wants every religious/spiritual person and figure to come together for her exorcism and exorcise her demons. It is lyrically very tongue-in-cheek. ” Kaleigh explains. Hailing from rural Ontario, Kaleigh began writing songs at only 5 years of age and has since taught herself piano, guitar and piano.

After the release of her 2013 album The Outlaw Project, the singer decided to … Read More »



LONG RANGE HUSTLE

Posted on May 7th, by Music Inform in Artists You Should Know About. No Comments

Long Range Hustle, as a phrase, means thinking about the big picture and playing the long game. Long Range Hustle, as a band, means combining an eclectic set of influences into a harmonious mixture of Canadian rock – a sound that sticks with you long after the record player has stopped.

The band comes from all over, geographically and musically, but these days they like to call Toronto their hometown.  They are Paul Brogee (Vox, Guitar, Violin), Olivia Brown (Bass, Vocals), AJ Fisico (Drums, Percussion, Vox), Jay Foster (Vox, Piano, Organ), and Josh Weiss (Guitar, Vox). Their diverse musical upbringings span rock, folk, classical, and jazz, and they fuse these differences together to create their own unique sound.

More than anything else, Long Range Hustle is a live band. An LRH show doesn’t pull any punches, leaving the stage soaked in sweat. … Read More »

“I started playing music when I was 16, in 2007. I had decided to take guitar lessons. They have been a sort of revelation. When I grew up, I didn’t listen to music that much. I had a few CDs that I would listen to all the time, without even trying to discover new artists, oddly. I would keep listening to Beastie Boys, Cypress Hill, Metallica, Aerosmith, Moby and a few bands from Quebec like Les Colocs or Jean Leloup.”

It was also during the winter of 2007 that Oliver Brad started electronic music production. Willing to discover new music, … Read More »

THE WRITTEN YEARS

Posted on October 27th, by Music Inform in Artists You Should Know About. No Comments

Affection, belonging, loss and nostalgia: four themes that encompass the lyrically driven music of The Written Years. These subjects are constantly questioned throughout the band’s songs, delivered passionately and honestly through Wade Ouellet’s melancholic acid-tinged vocals, Kane Enders’ unexpectedly triumphant drum lines and Kodie Krogh’s melodic and memorable guitar hooks.

Together, these three people are able to create a sound not currently heard in the Vancouver music scene, merging together a unique combination of indie alt. rock, traditional folk, post rock influences. Described as “Winter Music”, the result of all this manages to feel both incredibly intimate and uncomfortably isolating and is backed by a highly energetic live show – made possible by a revolving cast of friends, helping to make each one a completely different experience.

After six years in the making, The Written Years released their debut album on January … Read More »

GREEK RIOTS

Posted on October 5th, by Music Inform in Artists You Should Know About. No Comments

Formerly intended to be a simple duo, Greek Riots is born from the ashes of the now long-dead punk band Screaming at Traffic. They are of the opinion that what is dead may never die, but rises harder and stronger. The band, comprised of Jacques Richer, Seamus Hamilton-Pattison, and Duncan Murta (former lead vocalist, bassist, and lead guitarist respectively) have welcomed Mack Hatcher (the former drummer of Glass Giants) and the classically trained Breandan Flynn, newcomer to Winnipeg’s music scene.

In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s bands were sprouting up all over the world only to be latched on to by the so-called Emo movement, a trend people still try to avoid talking about to this day. Dismissed by others for the ravings of an unintentionally garnered fan base, their pleasing and often complex sounds faded into obscurity, dragged … Read More »
