Canadian Music Week, among other things, is a musical festival where Canadian musicians have the opportunity to showcase their talent. I have always found it very difficult to discover awesome Canadian musicians, having not been too impressed with what music labels love to spew out (with the exceptions of a few). I am willing to take full responsibility and admit that perhaps I have been listening in all the wrong places…
In such a diverse city, this incredible Indie scene has been right under my nose the whole time. The amount of Toronto talent and Canadian artists that have the opportunity to make a name for themselves with the help of festivals such as Canadian Music Week and NXNE deserve your attention! So take the time to scope out the CMW Schedule. (Click here)
Beginning today at various venues, CMW will open your eyes to a whole new level of Canadian talent, particularly our booming Indie scene. You are bound to find some new music you’ll want to cram your iPod full of!
I leave you with one of my latest obsessions, Magneta Lane’s newest single “Lady Bones”. This three piece female Toronto-based band performs this Thursday at The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern. See you there!Tweet
