Saskatchewan’s Next Star winner Katie Morgan’s powerful vocals and high energy performance have grabbed the attention of fans and industry alike. Katie recently released her debut pop-rick single, “Leave” – a deeply personal and autobiographical track, capturing the feeling of hitting rock bottom and not knowing where to go next. With a recent signing to Johnson Talent Management (Toronto, ON.) and a synchronization deal through Brewhouse Music (Los Angeles, California), there is a bright future ahead for Katie Morgan; one that is filled with promise and a song in her heart.
A lot of Blandlord’s material is a commentary on the state of affairs we are living in, a tongue-in-cheek view of what’s going around us. Rather than provide people solutions or answers to the problems faced in these modern times the band prefers to provide a soundtrack or a chance to think on those dilemmas. Blandlord’s new song, “Hyperdrunk,” is a reverb-heavy stoner rock track about control and excess and how easy it is to get caught in a loop.
“Hyperdrunk” is a solid performance from the band who are currently bringing one of the most infectious and unique sounds to the table. Our ears wide open for their epic blend of Rock n’ Roll. Rumor is the group is cooking up more musical surprises this year, and we’re ready! :
For all of our John Mayer guitar solo lovers out there… we’ve got some exciting news to share. A new artist has come to our attention, blasting out of his own presumed genre box, shattering the wall between jazz and rock and roll.
Mauricio Flores, also known as Purple Tone Flower, is about to become your new obsession. An extremely talented guitarist himself, Mauricio brings us smooth yet strong electric guitar melodies on his latest release “I wanna make it.”
This track is the type of versatile record that you can add to your next roadtrip playlist, but also play while you drink your glass of wine on the porch as you wine down from a long day.
It’s hard to choose a favorite part of the track, but we’ve settled on the incredibly controlled and haunting way PTF merges his sultry vocals with the main electric guitar melody.
This artist has major skills on the guitar and on the mic, and we cannot wait to hear more from this artist.

Marin Patenaude’s confessional folk is deeply honest, inspired by the wildness of nature, the messiness of human connection, and the overwhelming desire to run away from it all. Emotional lyrics paired with softly powerful instrumentals craft stories that explore loving and losing, the fragility of the human condition, and stories of a rural upbringing. Her new song “Cold Front” is a gorgeously crafted piece that brings the essence of Marin to life.
Her upcoming record Sight Unseen shows a louder, grittier side of Marin’s indie folk sensibility. Citing the influence of artists like Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos, Ani Difranco, Sarah McLachlan, and Neil Young, there’s an underlying darkness beneath the clear, free spirited melodies. For Marin, her songs are an extension of self–an opportunity to be as honest and real as she feels, something she has difficulty doing in the so-called real world. It’s big and it’s not always light. Though she’s a bright personality by nature, she often uses her music as a way to process grief. Her vocals are strong and technically trained, and she’s outspoken about the complexities of relationships and the uncertainty of our current political times. Let Marin Patenaude take you away!
