Take a listen to Hamilton’s Neena Rose and expect to hear more from her very soon. The 17-year-old singer is passionate, talented, and she’s earned a lot of accolades already. She’s also working on an up-and-coming EP with producer and writer 80 Empire.
Here’s a track to warm up your winter, and it’s so great, I’ve got it on repeat. Canadian producer Felix Cartal teamed up with the incredible Lights for the single “Love Me,” a sweet, slick, and fresh groove that will be stuck in your head for days.
What a single. Toronto singer and songwriter lemin’s soulful “My Body” is a revelation. The track is utterly gorgeous, and lemin’s vocals soar into a sorrowful, and yet uplifting finale that is moving and magical.
Ria Mae is one of my favorite Canadian artists, and her single “Hold On”, featuring Frank Kadillac of Neon Dreams, hits a lot of raw nerves. The single is sweet, sad, and rather raw, with Mae’s angelic vocals mixed perfectly with Kadillac to tell two sides of the same story.
Coleman Hell is back with “Killer” new music. Following his massive hit “2 Heads” the artist’s two new singles are moody and electric, with a style that is unmistakably Coleman Hell.
Iskwé released her single the “The Unforgotten” this month, featuring Canadian icon Tanya Tagaq, and the track is an inspiring, and darkly rousing call for understanding, unity, and respect. Blending Indigenous, rock, and electro pop music, “The Unforgotten” is moving and textured, and driven by Iskwé beautiful, rising vocals.
