Ever since I was an adolescent, I was on the quest for the perfect rock and roll song. There have been many great songs but there is one that I always go back to. I honestly believe Matt Mays gave that song to us in 2012 with “Take it on Faith” from his “Coyote” release.

He kills it with the opening high power chord and has you hooked immediately. The lyrics are so strong they can resonate and hit home with anyone in the populous. The chord progressions and the song structure have you locked in for the four minutes and twenty-six seconds this journey takes you on.

Victoria, BC folk-soul quintet Carmanah have just released a video for their latest single, “Stand Up.”

“If you hate, sit down. If you love with an asterisk that excludes others solely for being different, sit down,” they share. “If you choose to take for yourself and leave nothing for others, sit down. If you intentionally hurt others or the planet for your own gains, sit down.”

“Our new single, “Stand Up,” was intended to be a little cheeky, but was also written as a simple wish for love to prevail and for all the haters to just sit down and listen.”

Did you see the new video from Mike Edel for “Hello Universe?” “I don’t really feel the doubt, I just wanna sing it loud,” says Mike in this new single. Edel delivers an uptempo summer anthem laden with melodic hooks, and the positivity we need now: inviting us to ‘turn your back’ to the negative and embrace the gratification and simple joy our individual paths through life offer.

Mixed by Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire) and co-written with Parker Bossley, the accompanying music video is a must see. Shot over 5 days in Morocco in early March 2020, Edel and filmmaker Jordan Clarke barely made it home in the wake of the global pandemic. “It was a whirlwind video shoot and I connected through Paris,” says Edel. “A little French macaroon lady told me I was lucky I was flying today because the European/USA borders were closing tomorrow.”

Did you see this wonderful new music video from The Reklaws for “Where I’m From?” “Meeting these horses was so magical!” the siblings share. “We knew we had to be a part of this video as it was made to help raise awareness and funds for the horse racing industries which were severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic!”

Throughout her 15+ year recording career, Kitchener-Waterloo, ON artist Lynn Jackson has often been considered an acoustic troubadour - a tag she has never been afraid to resist.

Launching “Lionheart,” her 11th album to date, Jackson’s music exemplifies the title: fierce and tender, courageous and vulnerable, but above all, a powerful statement from an artist just beginning to reach her full potential.

Check out this brand new music video for “Stormy Eyes,” an album track that showcases her stripped down folk music talents.

I absolutely love Ryan Cook’s song “Uncomplicated” from the “Having A Great Time” album. The song is so sweet and gentle, and made all the more so by the very fact it is an uncomplicated song about what should be a very uncomplicated feeling between people.

The best songs are those which carry multiple meanings throughout the lyrics. This song accomplishes that from the title, through the lyrics, to the video itself. Ryan writes lyrics that everyone can relate to with experiences that many have had in their own lives. This is what keeps me coming back to Ryan’s music.
