Written by on

Kalle Mattson is having a great year and we thought it would be good to check in with him quickly before his Bluesfest performance. He plays the Clariage Homes Stage today at 2pm. You are our hometown hopeful on the Polaris list this year. What went through your mind when they announced it? How do you think this type of program can help your career? I knew there was a chance that the record would be nominated, but I really had no idea if it legitimately had a shot or... | Continue reading article

The Red Rails are a relatively new rock trio based in Ottawa. A love of minimalist rock and roll brought friends Kim Vincent (Vocals, Guitar), Chris Slaney (Bass, Vocals) and Steve Brogno (drums) together just over two years ago. “On the Line” is the first single from their forthcoming album A Living Fiction set to be released on Tuesday, July 15. For me, the song has a bit of a late 70s rock vibe to it: a heavy guitar combined with a sweet melody making it easy to groove along... | Continue reading article

From electronica to seductive rapping, Rehab Pizza Party has a little something to bring every scene together. If the eclectic mix of performers aren’t enough to get you out of the house, then the promise of free pizza will. “It’s a chance to relive what rock n’ roll pizza parties used to be, but this time with more dancing,” describe co-organizers Victoria Watson and Leona Nikolić. It’s the best of both worlds, “you get to hear all types of music and eat free pizza at the same time.” For their... | Continue reading article

Post by Tobi and Terence Cohen I became an Edie Brickell fan in Grade 9 after my then long, red-headed hippie boyfriend gave me a tape of her and the New Bohemians’ second album, Ghost of a Dog. My dad has always been a huge country music fan and, as his body fails him, considers “his tunes” his one true lifeblood. We’re both big, big Steve Martin fans who count Planes, Trains and Automobiles as the greatest movie ever made and admittedly use humour in our daily lives as a... | Continue reading article
