    The presence of critics' fave Andy Shauf in the band is generating attention. Taken from an imminent debut album, this gently-paced tune features his distinctive plaintive vocals framed in a '70s-style production sound. Sweet stuff.
  • The Quebec City band is led by Hubert Lenoir, now making a big splash as a solo artist. This new single has an infectious funk meets glam vibe, with light-hearted lyrics and vocals that channel Prince.
  • The Juno-winning female rockers are on a real roll, and this strong new single will sustain the momentum. The propulsive riffs and deadpan vocals initially evoke The Strokes, but the tune then takes on its own upbeat vitality.

    The James Bay roots-rockers hit a home run with their first music video, one that drives home a powerful message about the suicide crisis in their community. Mainman Adrian Sutherland delivers a passionate vocal performance.

    The Juno-nominated Montreal rapper delivers a charming single and video taken from his recent sophomore album. Jahkoy chimes in with a vocal feature that accentuates the tone and the lyrics are more tender than is usual for the genre.
  • Inspired by Gord Downie and produced by Kevin Drew, this sombre new track from the indie rock veterans has an elegiac quality enhanced by the gently haunting vocals of Torq Campbell.
  • Rock auteur and studio wunderkind Jordon Zadorozny returns to his long-term project with this advance track from an album due next spring. Keyboards and guitars mesh effectively, there are enough tempo changes to keep things interesting, and the production values are top-notch.
  • The Montreal chanteuse has been grabbing international attention, and this new single and video will continue her momentum. It's a slow-tempo gentle grabber, directed to an object of her lustful attention, and the sensual video complements it effectively.

    The former Miracle Fortress mainman has just released a debut solo album. This new single has a drifting and dreamy feel, with languid vocals placed atop a recurring pattern of sparse beats.
  • The Juno-nominated electro-pop duo from Vancouver releases the title track of an imminent new album. The chilled cut has a sparse yet quietly compelling feel, while the accompanying video clip was shot on 35mm film, to striking effect.

    With his indie-rock band Hey Rosetta! on hiatus, the East Coaster is pursuing a solo career. Based on piano and voice only, this new track is beautifully haunting, with Baker's resonant voice in fine form.
  • The Toronto folk-rockers showcase this focus track from their brand new full-length debut Victoria with an eye-catching lyric video. The tune features jaunty vocals and a snappy melody, and will definitely appeal to Strumbellas fans.
  • The honkytonk heroine teams up with kindred spirit Corb Lund for a duet celebrating enduring love. Their two distinctive voices mesh oh so sweetly.
  • A fitting song to spotlight as pot goes legal, this roots-pop track features jangly guitar, a catchy chorus, and amiable vocals from the acclaimed PEI songsmith.
  • This neo-soul singer/songwriter from Vancouver has already made a mark in the UK, and this lead track from a new album shows why. His vocals are subtly persuasive and the production values are high.
  • The road-hardened roots troubadour releases his sixth album, Your Perfect Matador, today, and this advance track is a winner. It has a muscular sound fuelled by female backing vocals, and a wailing guitar, while Aymar's near spoken word vocal style conveys the evocative lyrics with precision.

  • Now based in Nashville, the Ontario country singer/songwriter impresses on this radio-friendly duet with Gord Bamford. The two stars trade verses and harmonise effectively on a tune featuring whiskey as the cure for post-breakup pain.
  • The award-winning singer/songwriter delivers a haunting and fresh version of the Tom Petty classic. She has also curated a talent-laden Canadian playlist of Petty covers coming soon.
  • The return of the pop princess after a long absence is being welcomed. Her voice is in prime form on this powerful ballad that reflects her life-changing struggle with Lyme Disease.
