Watch out for these musicians in 2017, Ten of the best storming up the Canadian Music Scene this year…
Souldia – Rapper.
Music & Word’s Souldia: Beyond Violence describes Souldia, real name Kevin St-Laurent, as having an intense creative pace. It is hardly surprising; since releasing 5 albums since 2015, Souldia is clearly very productive, and determined. Which isn’t surprising considering his past. Souldia is hardly new to the Quebec City rap scene, however has mainly stayed relatively unknown globally over the past 15 years. We think 2017 is going to a break out year for Souldia, with his newest release “Sacrifice”, You can follow Souldia on FB, Twitter #souldia, or watch his “Krime Grave” video on Youtube.
Odonis Odonis – Industrial post -gaze.
We are not quite sure what ‘post-gaze’ is as a music genre, but we have become firm fans of Odonis Odonis. A band form Toronto, Ontario; their album “Post Plague” is a knockout, if you havent already downloaded their music yet you should! Odonis Odonis can be found on their FB Page , or better yet buy their album “Post Plague” from Bandcamp!
Made up of Taylor Kirk, Simon Trottier, Mathieu Charbonneau, Olivier Fairfield and Mika Posen. Despite continuing to play together regularly in Live event around Canada; this unusual band has got more quiet in recent years. We hope they have just gone into hibernation, busily working on their next album release. A quick listen to their song ‘Grand Canyon’ on YouTube from 2014 , give s a brief glimpse into the mad wild minds of these guys. you can follow Timber Timbre on FB, Twitter and Timber Timbre’s Website. Keep your eyes peeled!
