    Julian Taylor Band

    Rock

    What a pleasure it is to find in the monoculture of the current musical moment a group of musicians bold and talented enough to be various. In an era when music lovers seem to be required to like one thing, one style, one genre we get the protean of the Julian Taylor Band confident enough in their own abilities to delimit the genres and let the soulful beats resound from wider horizons. Here we have rhythm and blues, hard rock, thoughtful folky songs, and even a little hip-hop. In one way it signals something new —an exciting amalgamation of musical styles

    too long held apart. But in another way it’s a return to roots – the roots of the Toronto sound. You can’t listen to this album and not recall that Toronto has always been “the meeting place”. And just as many tribes and peoples always came through the nexus of this landscape so the musical tribes have continued the tradition. Not surprising then that

    this collection of songs erupts from the same musical epicenter that gave us Blood, Sweat & Tears, The Band, and Buffalo Spingfield hand-in-hand with cultural heavies like Neil Young, Gordon Lightfoot, Steppenwolf and Joni Mitchell. Julian Taylor is a natural heir to this rich tradition– something he shares with two other proponents of the

    Toronto sound, Drake and The Weekend. His music arises naturally from deep steeping in the historically mixed musical milieu that begat it. It has the comfortability of an open mind a wide palette and an experienced and inspired musical talent. So, welcome to the smorgasbord. I think you’ll find it very flavourful. Or as the song says “Ooh that spice is nice.”

    Hmm

    Midnight Shine

    Roots Rock

    They came together by chance. They stayed together for a shot. When Adrian Sutherland, singer/songwriter from the isolated Cree community of Attawapiskat, was offered opening spot for Trooper in Timmins, he reeled in three other musicians from Northern Ontario to form temporary band Midnight Shine. Their intention was to make the most of this one-off performance. Eight years, three albums, five Top 10 IMC radio singles, and 200+ media stories later… you could say they have. Turning heads with a sound that seamlessly mixes roots, classic and modern rock with touches of Mushkegowuk Cree, Midnight Shine are pushing musical boundaries and boldly taking new strides, while staying true to who they are and where they come from. Sharing a glimpse through songs of what life is like in the far North, Midnight Shine is a ‘must-hear’ band you’ll take a real shine to…
