Jason Wilson: Ashara (Album)

Scottish-Canadian visionary Jason Wilson ventures into personal ground with his latest album Ashara. Set for release on Friday 29 September, the record presents a joyful blend of Scottish folk, global roots and reggae, delving into Jason’s family history in such a way that connects his present life to a very distant past.

Devon Cole: Dickhead (Single)

Toronto-based alt-pop singer-songwriter Devon Cole shares a cheeky new summer single and music video entitled “Dickhead”.

This new track shines a light on what’s ahead for the singer-songwriter. Devon goes on to say that “Dickhead is also very representative of my future sound, I think. I’m a sucker for a good guitar riff and a driving beat. This chapter feels really good to me and I wanna keep chasing that feeling. I hope this song makes people excited about what I’m doing next.”

Halle: Angel (Single)

Global superstar Halle makes a splash with the release of her debut single “Angel.” Produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning producer, songwriter, and composer Theron “NeffU” Feemster (Michael Jackson, Justin Bieber, Ne-Yo), the track weaves a cinematic soundscape with an R&B groove punctuated by orchestral arrangements.

Mikhail Laxton: Mikhail Laxton (Album)

Mikhail Laxton Hails from the KuKu Yalanji Tribe in Mossman, Far North Queensland, Australia. 

Mikhail Laxton, the eponymous debut full-length album from rising singer-songwriter Mikhail Laxton is available now via acronym Records/Howling Turtle Inc. Across the album’s twelve tracks, Laxton weaves together his past, present and future selves, encapsulating the very essence of who he is, who he has been, and who he is becoming.

Terika: Eye For An Eye (Video)

Finnish singer-songwriter Terika (Terhi Karjalainen) has released a new official video for her single Eye For An Eye, showcasing her amazing voice and some stunning visual production. Terika`s début album 77700 got very positive feedback. The live audience was also enthusiastic about this new, strong voiced artist.

Genticorum: Au Coeur de l’Aube (The Heart of Dawn) (Album)

Just when the darkness gives way to the dawn, the birdsong reaches a crescendo. It is the “dawn chorus,” which greets the first sunbeams piercing the horizon. Au Coeur de l’Aube (The Heart of Dawn), the eleventh album by the trio Genticorum, is an invitation to delve into the core of Quebecois folk music by the light of the breaking dawn.


The album’s title captures this spirit in untranslatable wordplay, simultaneously evoking “the heart of the dawn” and the “dawn chorus” in the homonyms coeur/choeur.

Mae Simpson: Chandelier & Bloom (Single)

The third single from “Chandelier & Bloom”. Accompanied by an official music video, is the title track to their debut album. It gives the album momentum going into yet another genre bend which Mae Simpson is known for.

Simpson has opened for acts including Dermot Kennedy, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Robert Clay, Ike Reilly, Langhorn Slim, RubbleBucket, and Pert Near Sandstone.
