Men I Trust Releases “Tailwhip”

Tailwhip is a groovy song that talks about the band’s recent move back to Montreal. The lyrics are half happy (going back to a place we know to write new stuff) and half nostalgic (knowing we will end in the countryside). Emma’s soft vocals are supported by a thick rhythmic bass line, round pads, organs, Rhodes and simple percussions.

Kristina Emmott, also known under the stage name “willolux,” is a Canadian singer/songwriter whose musical style blends classic 70’s folk with infectious modern dream pop. Her introspective, whimsical songs recall the work of songstresses such as Neko Case, Ingrid Michaelson, and Regina Spektor.

Emmott’s love of songwriting blossomed early on – she recalls wandering through the playground at age 8, humming melodies and constantly daydreaming about songs.

Her debut album as Willolux, produced by Jon Anderson (Andy Shauf, Aidan Knight, Twin Bandit), is a full-length album entitled Thread & Tape, released on June 23rd, 2017. It is a collection of wistful songs, at once fragile and bold, which bravely lays bare questions of self-love, healing, and mental health. Thread & Tape can be found on all streaming services as well as iTunes.

With her catchy and endearing story based pop songs, Emily Rockarts is starting to catch on in Toronto’s crowded music scene. Her songs explore the wide eyed optimism of moving to new cities, the expansive depth of oceans, and the stratospheres of space.

Emily met Dan Rougeau (guitar – Flatrock, Midcoast), Soren Nissen (bass – Omni 3, David Occhipinti) and Ian Wright (drums – I Double You, Autobahn) while attending school at Humber College. Drawing on different backgrounds of rock, pop, jazz, and folk they’re working towards developing a cohesive sound that merges these influences.

“Mapmaker”, Emily Rockarts’ debut release from April of 2016, is a collection of songs that is as sweet and light hearted as it is thoughtful and full of longing. Emily’s music is artfully expressed through her captivating quartet. The music is honest, quirky, ever-changing and guarantees that no two shows will be the same.

After a successful east coast tour in promotion of “Mapmaker”, Emily is writing a new batch of songs, with the focus on a national tour, and the release of a full length album in 2018.

Since their formation, Diamond Thug have continually evolved, always striving to create a unique sound that’s stay true to their perspective. Their music glides through dream-pop, skittish, off-kilter electronica & psychedelic-rock, creating cosmic-influenced ethereal soundscapes, which swirl below Chantel’s haunting, yet beautiful melodies. The pursuit of an authentic & honest sound has earned the band various honours in international competitions such as Culture Collide’s pick to perform at SXSW 2017, as well as Converse’s Music Global Takeover and the attention of Grammy Award winner Darryl Torr, who had this to say about the band: “When listening to Diamond Thug, you are taken on a journey. It’s the effortless vocals, supported by a solid band, that tips you over the edge & pulls you through into their world. It’s rare to find a voice that can execute such interesting melodies so effortlessly as well as a band that leaves space for the vocals to shine, yet are able to maintain musical integrity.”

Keaton Conrad Releases “Waves”

Keaton Conrad is a musical artist known for effectively infusing indie rock with diverse genres, such as house, jazz, and hip-hop. A 17-year-old Kansas native, he is influenced by a wide range of artists including Neon Indian, Coldplay, Bon Iver, and Chet Faker. In addition to his singing and musical abilities, he has received recognition and numerous awards for his songwriting and classical composition skills.

Conrad spent two years as the lead singer and keyboardist in the pop rock cover band ChangeUp, performing around the Kansas City area and building a strong following with fans of all ages. In late 2014, he stepped away to focus on writing and pursue a solo career.

In the midst of self-discovery and growth as an artist, Conrad strengthened his production skills and in 2015 released an original five-song EP, Panic & Blame, which is reminiscent of the 2000s pop rock sound he grew up on.

Waves is Keaton Conrad’s first full-length album and features nine original songs, including the single “Biscayne”. In this release, Keaton influences his indie rock style with anomalous sounds to create an innovative yet comfortable record. Ranging in style from pop rock to hip-hop to ambient, this album is innately diverse. Waves proves to be very intimate for him, pulling from various experiences and influences, and the result is a nine song journey that captures the true soul of this young artist.
