Canadian Mathew V has soul, rock, and rhythm in his blood, and his new single “Broken” blends those styles with a beat that is incredibly addictive.
In my new weekly feature, Fresh Indies, I’ll be highlighting a selection of some of my favorite new Indie music, and this week there are some fantastic new singles to share. Featured tracks include Tim Myers’ solo single “Mother”, Young Galaxy’s independent track “Under My Wing”, Georgee Landy’s smooth “Half The Ish”, Wild Child’s stirring “Sinking Ship”, Paige’s danceable “Everywhere” ft. Jojee, Leila Pari’s poptacular “Forever Young”, and Dana Williams’ beautiful “There You Go”.
Producer and electro-pop artist Digisaurus launched his brand new single “Knocking Heads” today, and it’s a delicious synthpop track that’s a sweet mix of nostalgia, for those of us who grew up in the 80s especially, and modern, driven, Indie rock.
Discovering great new music is a glorious thing, so I’m sharing joy for the New Year with seven indie artists and their latest singles and recent hits. Featured artists include fresh Indie music from: Tobtok, Nick de la Hoyde, Blyne, Bloom Twins, Nikö Blank, and KØS.
Sarah and Charlotte Command, better known as the Command Sisters, have been performing since they were kids, and as their skills evolve, their sound has changed too. Earlier this fall the duo sat down with me to talk about their new music, touring, and their influences.
I was 17 when I first saw Gord Downie perform, and it was a performance that I will never forget. Downie was mesmerizing, powerful, and otherworldly, and that night he seemed ready to fly out of his own skin as he sang.
Canadian model Polina Grace may be known for her 20,000 followers on Instagram, and over 1 million likes and shares on social media, but it’s her love of singing and music that drives her, and led her to release her new single “High Enough” with AMG/Sony.
My family raised me on country music. When I was a kid, my mother and grandmother listened to nothing but old school country, and that certainly rubbed off on me. My tastes are all over the place, but country still speaks to kid in me that grew up on it, so when I got an invite to come down to Chicago to cover the Windy City Smokeout country music festival, I was excited for a whole bunch of reasons.
You’ve never heard “Billie Jean” quite like this. Near the end of last year, guitarist Alexandr Misko released his percussive guitar cover of Michael Jackson’s iconic “Billie Jean” and to say it was a hit would be a pretty big understatement. On Facebook alone, the video has wracked up an impressive 29 million views.
Do you know what I love the most about the Oscars? It’s not really the awards for me, but the frame that it puts around the year in cinema. It’s about the love of movies, and in particular I love the way their montages make films come to life again, like you’re seeing them for the first time. They’re fresh, exciting glimpses into the real heart of cinema–those heart-racing, action-packed, emotional core moments that keep us going back for more stories time and again.
