Today's New Track

  • The latest contender in the Toronto avant-R&B sweepstakes improves his odds with this focus track from a new album. Abetted by sparse production, his vocals have a pleasingly romantic tone.
  • The prize-winning roots-rockers mix things up with an appealing new single that features country singer Morrissey dueting sweetly with JJ Thompson. The track will appear on the group's upcoming second album, Daisy.
  • The Toronto-based bilingual alt-folk duo recently won Stingray's Rising Star Award for this track. A charming new video complements an upbeat and empowering tune delivered via pure vocals.
  • Best known as a film and TV actor, the Torontonian impresses on this poignant piano ballad. The song was inspired by the recent mass shooting that rocked the city.

    The Montreal-based folk singer/songwriter has earned international accolades for her earlier work and releases a third album next month. This focus track is a gem, built around her pure voice, poetic lyrics and haunting pedal steel.
  • The 17-year-old rapper/singer is being tipped as the potential next big thing from the Six. This cut from his just-released debut mixtape shows why, as it showcases his vocal chops alongside smart production on a breezy and catchy tune.
  • This enigmatic rocker is heavily influenced by the sound and style of glam. This highly appealing cut from an upcoming debut album fuses Joy Division basslines, androgynous vocals, analogue synths, and smart production touches.
  • Moving on from garage rockers JPNSGRLS, Charlie Kerr delivers an impressive debut EP with his new combo. This cut is every bit as refreshing as its namesake, thanks to frisky guitars and catchy hooks. Fans of Tokyo Police Club should take note.
  • The brainchild of singer/songwriter Shaina Silver-Baird, this collaborative project features many Toronto notables on an upcoming album. Released today, this single is lushly-layered electro-pop with a rousing chorus and an upbeat message.

    The highly-regarded Montreal pop/rocker previews a new album with the title track single. The lively tone is in contrast to downbeat lyrics, while his voice has an easy on the ear quality.
  • This highly-touted Montreal-based singer/songwriter releases her next album, Holy Smoke, on Sept. 28. This new single features a steamy off-beat video, while the song showcases her expressive voice and penchant for dark themes.
  • The platinum-selling Cancountry star recruits a fast-rising young artist to collaborate on this new single. The pair harmonises sweetly and soaring guitar helps nail the sentiments of a post-breakup scenario.
  • The well-respected Toronto rapper and producer enlists a veteran hip-hop star for this entertaining new track and video. The pair trade verses fluently and the witty rhymes and upbeat vibe make this a winner.
  • The promising young Calgary singer makes her debut with this sweetly charming cover of a song by Cris Cuddy, fittingly released on the anniversary of The King's death.
  • Now based in Nashville, this rootsy and seasoned songsmith releases a new EP next month. This lead single is a plaintive ballad featuring soulful vocals and perceptive lyrics.

    The hotly-tipped Hamilton indie rock trio lives up to the hype with this compelling title track from an imminent debut full-length. It showcases the heavier side of their dream pop sound.
  • Hamilton's hard rock favourites return with a new track and video ahead of their imminent album True Rockers. The swirling organ meshes perfectly with the group's signature guitar crunch.
  • The personal and musical chemistry of the two singer/songwriters, one Canadian, one German, shines through on this charming cut, the first single from the duo's debut album. It features sweet harmonies and heartfelt lyrics and is accompanied by an equally appealing video.
  • The hitmakers behind "Rude" and Kiss Me" have high expectations for their upcoming album. This title track is a more mellow affair than those songs, but it features some sage advice while showcasing their considerable songcraft.
  • The prolific pop singer/songwriter previews a new album with this impressive electro-pop cut. His softly melodic vocals are placed atop repetitive keyboard figures, and the '80s-flavoured tune is gently insinuating.
