In the spirit of their past Christmas release they intended mostly for family and friends last year, Zach and Melissa Walker wanted to spread the joy into the 2020 holiday season.
“Christmas Tears” was originally written by Sid Bass and Robert Crewe; Zach and Melissa Walker breathe new life into the track, providing the perfect foundation into the record as a whole.
“There’s Snow-One Like You,” will be filled with holiday classics as Zach and Melissa put their own special ingredients into the mix. The result is a charming and joyful collection of songs that will have you head over heels into the New Year, and beyond!
“Pay Me” is the first installment to Sweet Roger’s upcoming follow up record to his debut album, You’ll Always Have Yourself. The track captures the unsettling mood of the times with a defiant performance of raw vocals and growly acoustics driven by a solid rhythm that exultantly powers us forward.
Sweet Roger finds relevance for folksy themes and imagery in an advanced age where we continue to struggle and search for solace. New single, “Pay Me” is a surly blues and folk song reminiscent of early 20th century outliers who sang in rough and coarse overtones speaking of hardships, travels, and cursed relationships.
Snotty Nose Rez Kids is a Haisla Hip-Hop duo from Kitimat, BC, composed of rappers/producers Yung Trybez & Young D. They opened 2020 with their first EP release, Born Deadly, to promote their first headline US tour. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the tour was postponed to 2021. The pair are currently working on their next full-length album set for release mid-2021.
SNRK are rounding out 2020 with their joint release, “Where They At,” with Drezus, their fourth collaboration as artists. A lot has changed over the years. Both positive and negative, but at the end of the day, Yung Trybez & Young D do their best to keep their heads high & keep moving forward. “Where They At” was inspired by just experiencing life. SNRK is doing alright through all the madness.
For the past year and a half, multicultural musical artist John Orpheus has been writing his memoir called SAGA BOY which will be published by Penguin Random House Canada in January 2021. To coincide with the book’s release next year, John decided to return to music and release a companion album also entitled SAGA BOY. Both the book and the album are built on the same themes: searching for home, for family, for love, and a fly coat to wear when you get there.
The new single, “Electric,” bridges the gap between John’s previous album, WEY YA CALL DAT TING, and the new full-length SAGA BOY. It’s a song about chemistry – the magic that catches our eye and gets us all in our feels. That spark. With a schoolyard chant disguised as a pop chorus filled with optimism and adoration, a Trini chant to blaze up and raise up and a whimsical rap verse by Michigan rapper/composer Jordan Hamilton, the song crackles with fun.
