The Sun Harmonic are readying to release their new EP, out April 17, titled “It’s All Okay Thanks to You”. The Canada-based band also recently shared their new single “Sign on the Road,” which is a glorious indie-folk-laced song that will have you intrigued from start to finish.
Songwriter Kaleb Hikele of The Sun Harmonic shares:
“Sign On The Road was written in one night, sitting on the piano bench as I watched a US election roll in. It’s optimistic, uplifting and hopeful, with open ended lyrics that let you define your own meaning. Who knew we would need this song so badly in this isolated world we unexpectedly live in, the song is coming out just as my own city shuts down to quarantine and the irony of singing “I see this sign on the road” is heavy. I’m proud to give this song to those who need it the most today.”Sign” is one of my favourite songs that I’ve carried with me on the road for many years now. I’ve toured the song as a solo artist across the country and even recorded it as a demo with another band entirely called The Other Birds a while ago. It’s taken so many years and experiences to finally sink in, to find the right place in time to be performed (with my current rock trio) and be recorded properly (live off the floor at a favourite studio of mine called The Chalet in Ontario). I’d been to The Chalet once ten years ago for my debut album and five years ago to record songs for “Winter”, and I brought the same engineer from the Winter sessions to pay tribute to this past. Josh Bowman brought the perfect touch to this one studio day where we recorded all five songs live in a room together.”
The Sun Harmonic is a solo folk act that grew into a rock and roll band and the main creative outlet for Canadian composer Kaleb Hikele since 2009. An eclectic songwriter and adventurous recording artist from Toronto’s east end, raised in the small town of St.Thomas, Ontario. After a decade using his stage name, the artist was gratefully showcased by Canada’s Walk of Fame in downtown Toronto and Festival Du Voyageur in Winnipeg 2020. Now a folk-rock trio, the group is ready to Rock and Roll more than ever.

Joey Stylez and Carsen Gray share their EPIC new single “Jungle Night,” which will quickly become the anthem to your Summer.
Canadians and now the world have also started to take notice when Stylez & Gray performed “Sunshine and Moonlight” live on the 2019 CBC National New Years Eve Countdown. Since then, this power couple has been capturing audiences across the country and internationally with their intuitive lyrics and empowering vocals. “Jungle Night” combines Carsen’s energetic pop sound and Joey’s diverse musical background for a single that represents the essence of opposites attract.
When superstar The Weeknd cited “Joey Stylez is a big inspiration” in a now famous video clip, it was a very fitting description. From the time he started his creative journey, to the present, he has always made music a tool to express his individuality. The Stylez part of his energetic persona says a lot about his ability to dabble in all genres of music including Hip Hop, Indie Rock & Pop. Nothing seems to intimidate his creative process as he paints abstract & timeless themes overtop of unique sounding productions. His catalogue has tracks with the likes of Grammy Award winning producer James Ho (Malay), band Dragonette and rappers Bun B & Ty Dolla $ign. In 2017 Aboriginal Peoples Television Network released an hour-long special which aired for over a year, detailing his rise from a troubled youth to an internationally recognized artist. The strong following he has built over the years has earned him a respectable online presence, and millions of YouTube views. When Stylez is not in music mode, he is also a successful visual artist with celebrity clients, and runs his own clothing brand, Stressed Street.
