Influencer marketing agency Songfluencer launches the RISING - Black Artist Initiative, Bobby Bazini (pictured) will live-stream from an historic locale, and British prog-rockers honour Neil Peart. Also making news are Corey Hart, Juno Talks, Tyler Joe Miller, Sunfields, Tania Joy, Justyn Thyme, Fuzzed Out, Harrison Kennedy, Mikalyn Hay, Laura Fernandez, Howard Gladstone, and farewell to Prince Markie Dee, Milford Graves, Gene Taylor, and U-Roy.
During this period of adjustment and homestay, I thought I'd survey the music landscape and peer into the lives of fellow musicians and industry stalwarts. The responses of these Toronto female artists and biz players are compelling.
The Hunter Brothers (pictured) top the list of nominees for the SCMAs, Ottawa’s Bluesfest lures big names, and a new Yukon fest is launched. Also in the news are Block Heater, CMAOntario Awards, Laura Fernandez, a vinyl doco, Canadian Screen Awards, Linda Manzer, Your Favorite Enemies, Melissa Payne, Kyle Meagher, and farewell Andrew Weatherall.
