BAD CHILD delivers a cinematic new visual for his standout cut “Pretty Girls”
BAD CHILD crash lands on our pages with an incredible video for his standout cut “Pretty Girls.” It’s an ultra-cinematic visual that brings the track to life beautifully, showing off BAD CHILD’s unique artistry and stellar set of skills as he lays down some knockout verses and a killer hook en route to an amazing track and video overall. Be sure to look out for more from him soon, as he’s without a doubt one of the most refreshing artists we’ve heard in recent months. Enjoy “Pretty Gir... more

Five Questions With… The Philosopher Kings
It’s almost impossible to recall how barren the Canadian R&B landscape was in 1994 when The Philosopher Kings released their self-titled debut album.

Marshall makes most of main stage jazz fest show
Amanda Marshall hasn’t released album since 2001. She doesn’t have a Twitter account, a Facebook page or a website. But based on her performance Friday night at the SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, the only reasonable explanation for her absence is that she’s been cryogenically frozen for the last 16 years. She looks and sounds exactly the same. Her concert was a 1995 dream come true. And damn, did those songs hold up.

Accompanied by a seven-piece band, the Canadian singer-songwr... more
