Neon Dreams: Find A Way
Neon Dreams - "Find A Way" (Independent): There is no disputing the fact that this Halifax band is one of the hottest young acts in Canada right now. Last year's EP, To You, has received over 5 million streams on Spotify and sold over 7,000 units in Canada, highly impressive figures for a fully independent band.
Recent hit single "Marching Bands" feat. Kardinal Offishall was a catalyst, and it reached #15 on the Canadian Top 40. Don't be surprised if this new single duplicates that feat.
It was released on Valentine's Day, appropriate timing given the romantic thrust of lyrics like “I’ve got every intention of making this work, I’ve got every intention to learn to find a way.”
Neon Dreams' eclectic sound merges EDM and pop using live instrumentation, while a staccato neo-reggae groove is employed effectively on "Find A Way."
Last year the group was named one of three winners in the 2016 Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class program, a prize that earns them a performance slot at JUNOfest in April.
Neon Dreams has a March 8 showcase at Hollywood's the Viper Room, followed by 13 shows in Eastern Canada in March and April. Details here
The band is managed by Daryl Flood at Sure Fire Entertainment, with Jason Soulliere at The Feldman Agency handling booking.
