Dwayne Gretzky is a super-group cover band based out of Toronto, ON. The core of the band centres around the members of EMI-signed pop-rock band Sweet Thing, but with a continuously rotating line-up, the make-up of Dwayne Gretzky always contains an element of surprise and is known to have included members of Arkells, Flash Lightnin’, the always unpredictable Allie [...]

Summer Fling is the DJ duo of YLMC founder Bobby Kimberley and his partner-in-blissful-crime Anna Wiesen.  The two channel the memory of radio DJs of yesterday, curating sets of new and old, taking the dance floor on a journey through the greatest songs ever written from 60’s boogie to 80’s retro to modern indie. The result: [...]

Paper Lions is a Canadian pop rock band hailing from the unlikely small community of Belfast, Prince Edward Island. Brothers John and Rob MacPhee and neighbour Colin Buchanan began playing music together at a very young age in a variety of garage bands.

Harvesting the DIY luxury afforded by anyone with a laptop computer, an internet connection and a natural penchant for creative expression, Toronto’s Mark Andrade is set to release his debut EP as Paradise Animals; 7 lush, layered, dream-pop songs that he wrote, recorded, and produced.

The world’s most recognized brand doesn’t get there by accident.  They get there by constantly creating boundary-pushing, culturally relevant initiatives and executions.

 

Red Bull Music Academy is at the forefront of highlighting  and growing developing artists.  So when we brought them our idea for Canadian Music Week 2012, artist showcases as curated & hosted by Canada’s top artists, everyone knew it was a perfect fit.

As the longest running showcase festival & industry conference in North America, Canadian Music Week knows what’s up.  That’s why, when they decided to expand their creative and special events for the upcoming 2012 festival, they knew exactly who to contact.


Anyone who knows indie music, knows that Steam Whistle knows (and loves) indie music.  They’ve been staple supporters of the Toronto-and-area music community almost as long as they’ve been a brand.  And now that they’ve expanded across the country with their product, they’ve also expanded their support – connecting with artists and communities from coast-to-coast. That’s something that we can get behind.

Scion is not simply a car.  It’s a vehicle for self-expression.

Having quickly established itself as one of the world’s most forward-thinking, creative brands, it’s no accident that Toyota Scion and Young Lions Music Club have teamed up on many o’ ditties.

We didn’t get up to a whole bunch this CMW.  It was cold, and we didn’t want to have to ask everyone to stand outside in big lineups. Instead, we put on a very special, intimate apartment show at our friend Tyler’s place.  It was members only, and it was fantastic. Big thanks to Aidan [...]
