A singer songwriter that we’ve loved for a while now is Toronto-based Matthew Barber. Watch the latest video for the song “Hold Me” from his latest album Big Romance. The video, directed by Ilia Horsburgh, was filmed in beautiful Banff Alberta. The song and video is slow and moving, much like the landscape.
We recently asked our friends at Classic Albums Live to share some of their favourite elements from the albums that they perform. Here, guitar virtuoso Dom Polito demonstrates the mandolin parts from “The Battle of Evermore” for your listening and learning and viewing enjoyment.
Earlier this year, pre the winter snow fall, we caught up with Royal Wood and asked if he’d play a song that we could share with you all, in advance of his Toronto concert this season. Little did we know this song would not only be the soundtrack to our 2013|14 season launch but the first Top 40 commercial radio hit of his career! We’re confident this is the first in what will be a long and fulfilling journey and we are thrilled to be supporting his success all along the way.
