Right in-time for JUNOs Weekend, TD MUSICOUNTS and NKPR threw a two-day bash not soon to be forgotten! Homegrown Acts like The Arkells, Eleven Past One, Karl Wolf, North of Nowhere and more graced the intimate stage at Sheraton Hamilton Hotel’s MacNab Room, gifting TD Green Room Attendees with pure, unadulterated great music. Tweezerman offered free facial grooming, wildly-popular DAVIDsTEA offered an open hot/cold Tea Bear, while MAC provided the Ladies with Makeovers. The feel was festive, the sounds were superb.
Wolf, who has been a staple on Canadian Radio for the past decade, performed his popular Toto-interpolated Africa acoustically, plus the Ballad You’ve Got Me. The Lebanese-Canadian Singer/Songwriter is primed to release his new Album Tuesday, titled WOW via Universal Music Canada.
Although they still are emerging Toronto’s North of Nowhere featuring Teen Singer/Songwriter Connor Ross, who recently won a nation-wide Contest in search of a MUSIC MONDAY Anthem, for the Coalition of Music Education. The Song We Are One will be released on Monday, May 4, 2015 and we got a sample of it today. Also in the Soul-Rock Band is Co-Lead Vocalist Duncan Boudreau, who wowed many with his impressive Adam Levine-esque vocals.
Hailing from Bowmanville, Quintet Eleven Past One have had a presence on our airwaves with their Hit The World Is Ours and Wake Up. While we are still enjoying their debut EP released via Warner Music Canada, they played for us a brand-new Cover of Labelmates Spandau Ballet‘s 80s Classic True acoustically and the response was phenomenal from their three-song Set which they played seated. The Track is available on the curious SOUNDS OF THE 80s Canadian Pressing which sees the likes of Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Christina Perri, Kylie Minogue, Passenger and Birdy covering some of our Faves. More here.
And awesome was it getting a shout-out from our Boys?
