Canadian hip hop artist Ceesar released Hustle & Passion today, his debut, independent EP, and it’s a fresh mix of R&B and pop, with a trance-like vocal style.
“Amsterdam” is English singer-songwriter Grace Davies’ sad, sweet love song, and it’s a gorgeous introduction to the artist, and her powerful voice.
Erik Frank is one of my new favourite artists, and his single “All Night” is a slow groove that digs deep.
Montreal’s San James opens up with her latest single, “Otherwise”, and it’s a bold, moving portrait of the artist.
Lu Kala’s “Want You” is going to blow you away. Kala’s voice is effortless and stunning, and the electro pop single is fiercely refreshing.
St. South’s “Growing Up” is magic; calm and powerful, and sweeping you away with her.
This year I’ve heard a lot of great new singles from up-and-coming bands, and Low Life Lolas’ “Grime” is one of my favourites.
Stables’ “Marathon” is giving me life right now, and it might just be the perfect Monday song.
This year has been tough on a lot of people. Canadians have been separated for months during the pandemic, and nothing has been the same. Catherine MacLellan and Tara MacLean’s song “This Storm” is a ray of sunshine for anyone who’s still struggling though.
Kaylee Rutland’s “Kiss Me Like You Miss Me” is a ray of sunshine, and it sounds like summer. The country pop single hits all the right notes, and Rutland’s vocals are bright, beautiful, and airy.
