MOST RECENT

Spent Day Two of volunteering (officially day one of the fest) at The Marquee again, having my mind blown and heart moved by Polaris Music Prize winner Jeremey Dutcher, and this power house pictured, Zola Jesus. Plus some other great new (to me) bands. Amazing Helter Skelter cover by Skye Wallace.

Massive congratulations to @jdutchermusic on winning the biggest award in Canadian music last month, the Polaris prize. Dutcher, a singer and composer from New Brunswick’s Tobique First Nation was interviewed by Matt Williams @koy.ote in the brand new volume of @themaritimeedit. Because this is what we do. Celebrate great people doing great things in and about Atlantic Canada.

“The thing about music is you don’t always have to understand what it’s about, you just have to feel it.” | @pierrekwenders creates funky African electronic, where he sings in multiple languages including French and Lingala. John caught up with the @polarismusicprize short list nominee before his performance at last month’s Gala.

The first standing ovation of the Polaris Gala came when Jean-Michel Blais put on a beautiful performance. Mixing classical music with modern electronic elements sets him apart.

A native of Prince Edward Island, Rose Cousins lives in Halifax Nova Scotia and her love for being part of multiple music communities fuels collaboration. Cousins’ 2012 album We Have Made A Spark celebrated her Boston community and featured a cast of musicians Cousins had known and played music with for a decade. It won a JUNO Award, 3 East Coast Music Awards, a Canadian Folk Music Award, was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize, and made picks/best of lists in USA Today, NPR Music and Oprah Magazine.

Partner is keeping the fun of punk rock alive and well. With funny skits, immature humour and screeching riffs they position themselves as the forefront of Canadian rock.

Continuing the trend of great Indigenous artists leading the artistic movement in Canada are Snotty Nose Rez Kids and their boundary pushing Average Savage, which was nominated for this year's @polarismusicprize.

Alvvays wasn't able to be at this years @polarismusicprize so they sent Deep Waters a band from the Girls Rock Camp Toronto to play In Undertow. It was awesome seeing these talented young girls play to such a big and influential crowd.

Flashback to the 2018 @PolarisMusicPrize Gala at @TheCarlu. What an incredible evening celebrating Canadian music! ✨🎵🇨🇦

Pierre Kwenders blends many genres and languages in his music making him a truly unique global artist that I am proud that he considers his art Canadian.

Hubert Lenoir who announced himself as the "French Canadian Nightmare" stole the show at this year's @polarismusicprize. He climbed on tables, stole beers from other guests and caused a ruckus. When he finished his set he walked off stage (while the band was still playing) and calming sat down at his table and cracked open another beer (last image). Incredible.

In my mock @polarismusicprize ballot I picked US Girls and her record In A Poem Unlimited as my number one choice. Meg Remy is a one of a kind artist and I am constantly rooting for her.
