The first track I was sent from Violent from We Are The City was Baptism (on my birthday this year no less) and I was asked if I’d consider working it. I responded: “I was born to work with this band.” A lot has changed in the time that has passed, but what I feel for this band and the people around Cayne, Andy and David has only grown. Watch out.

We Are The City are about to tour Canada with Shad. They just released a free live EP/video series from their website www.wearethecity.ca called PXTK – something definitely worth checking out, as is seeing the band live. They are to me one of the most exciting and engaging bands live, they are driven, creative, resourceful and lovely people to the core. I am very lucky to have this band work with me.
Here is King David, the first video released from PXTK watch for more to follow in the coming weeks.

Enjoying this piece of loveliness. Nite.

I have been delinquent in my postings. That’s fairly obvious. If I’m honest, I’m just lucky to get through the day with the baby, work, dog, cat, life, sanity and lovely husband and myself all accounted for in the end zone. I’m also watching 10 years too late, Friday Night Lights in those brief moments when I’m not awake until midnight working (and I am thinking about seriously cutting my hair off to Tyra’s style in Season 2 – thinking about it!). In no way is that a boo-hoo. I am in the luckiest world I have ever known. I do what I love, on my terms and I get to work with an astounding group of people and musicians and talent and they let me hang with my kid in really critical moments of life’s early time – and most of these people know I would be a heap of uselessness if I had to at this point surrender her to daycare everyday. I don’t, thankfully but I also have a nanny who is of divine assistance and I value my work and the bands I work as much as my family. I wouldn’t trade a single sleepless moment for anything. One new band to my roster, Sleepy Sun from San Francisco, gets the first (long overdue) post, I didn’t get them updated in my client list tonight, but I will – and they are amazing. This video had me glued to my computer to see how it turned out. Dark. Dangerous. Destructive. 11:32 at 22:22
Sleepy Sun have a 2 song Ep out on Oct 15. Much more to come.

Montreal’s Half Moon Run are confirmed on select shows to support Wintersleep in Canada this June. Full show details follow below. They are also booked to play Hillside (July) and Osheaga (August) festivals this summer.
Half Moon Run clearly have a knack of landing sublime support slots, playing with Plants and Animals at Lee’s Palace in April and they recently played with Patrick Watson at his late May Danforth Music Hall show in Toronto. They have also spent a significant amount of time in the UK and Europe, selling out gigs in Germany and proved to be standouts at The Great Escape Festival in the U.K. and Les 3Éléphants Festival in France.
Half Moon Run have released another track from their debut album, Dark Eyes called She Wants To Know, via Soundcloud

One of the best and most compelling EPK’s I’ve been witness to. I had to share. Band’s interested in doing something similar, take note:
It’s been a grand year for Hey Rosetta! Polaris short-listed (again), a Juno Award nomination (and performance on broadcast night), several ECMA nominations and wins, non-stop, international touring. They held down two Canadian industry music mag covers over the same months earlier this year. Seeds is now out in the US (on ATO Records) and the summer festival circuit begins. See this band if you’re making the festival rounds. They are one of the best.
