The Keeshea Pratt Band Will Make You ‘Believe’

It's brand spanking new music with an ingenious old school feel. 'Believe' is musical craftsmanship taken to the nth degree.

Debut From Russ Green is Windy ‘City Soul’

On 'City Soul,' Russ Green creates a smooth blues album. It’s the blues, but there are no rough edges. Instead, it’s a solid album of great harmonica playing and solid vocals.

The Delta Saints Deliver the Goods ‘Live From the AB’

The Delta Saints are a band with a big, eclectic sound that encompasses past, present, and future. They’re sonically rich but not dense, rooted in the roots but not cliched, and darkly bluesy without being overwrought.

The BluesBones – ‘Chasing Shadows’ and Capturing Fans

There is a familiarity to 'Chasing Shadows' that put us right at home from the very first. But then we played it again, and again, and discovered new delights each time.

Have Mercy: The Gospel According to Paul Cauthen

On tour this summer, including five opening nights for Shakey Graves, Paul Cauthen is a don't miss act, and 'Have Mercy' is a must have EP.

The Sheepdogs Are ‘Changing Colours’

The Sheepdogs cross a lot of lines, and in doing so open a lot of doors. And behind those doors is a great Canadian band that’s coming to your town to help you party down.

Fantastic Negrito Is True to His Voice with ‘Please Don’t Be Dead’

'Please Don’t Be Dead' works because it sounds so natural. Every song sounds just how it should be...

Dan McKinnon Gives Us Blues with a Groove on ‘The Cleaner’

Great blues is about the groove, not the guitar solo. On 'The Cleaner,' Toronto’s own Dan McKinnon shows a great understanding of that concept.

Ally Venable Steps Up on ‘Puppet Show’

Venable is the real deal. 'Puppet Show' would be a mature album for someone twice her age.
