David Ward - “Looking Glass” (Indie):  This singer/songwriter from Vancouver had not crossed our radar until very recently, but hi

Today's New Track

  • 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.

    Acclaimed singer/songwriter/producer Lisa Conway shines on this new track, one enhanced by a compelling video clip. The Slaight Music Residency graduate mesmerises with a voice that is both haunting and strong.
  • 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.
  • This new single from the Hamilton band's upcoming album, Rally Cry, reflects upon a karaoke-boosted respite from dark times. Another winner from a group whose moment is now.
  • The Newfoundland folk duo releases a video to accompany the title track of its popular second album. It features soaring and full-blooded production courtesy of Daniel Ledwell, while the vocal harmonies are sweet and tight.
  • The Juno-wining and multi-platinum selling pop songstress returns with a new single that confirms her talent. A staccato drum track adds a hip-hop inflection to a sweetly sung piano ballad.
  • 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.
