Multiplatinum 2x JUNO nominee Fred Pellerin returns with nicely done singer-songwriter LP Après, his fourth work as a soloist. Fred is known for his exquisite storytelling, and the album takes us to peaceful realms.
Going Late is the new disc from JUNO nominated Vancouver band Humans, a funky electronic excursion through alternative territory.
Allan Rayman was nominated for the Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the 2018 JUNOs. His song “13” from last year was very popular. Allan has a unique singing style which you may or may not like, but there should not be too many voices of dissent for the musicality of his new album despite the risqué name Harry Hard-On. Check out track “Never any no good” for something … good.
Burnaby’s Michael Bublé swings out his 10th studio album, Love. The 13-time JUNO award winning diamond recording artist co-produced the new disc with Canadian producer David Foster. It contains mostly covers arranged into his signature peppy vocal jazz sound.
Jules engages in People Watching, a pleasant surprise of a pop album. The Oakville native grew up loving the music of Pink and Avril Lavigne dreaming of one day making good music of her own. With this debut album of hers, she has done so.
World music is done incredibly well by JUNO nominated group Ayrad on new album Zoubida. The collective manages to tighten up south Asian, west Asian, flamenco, and reggae styles into catchy numbers tasty to Canadian ears.
Nova Scotian R&B star JRDN, a JUNO award winner, serves his latest concoction via EP Supply & Demand. He has managed to place five songs on the Billboard Hot 100 over the years.
