  • The Lonely Hearts are a rock and roll jukebox.

    A high energy quartet, the Lonely Hearts have been playing together for nearly a decade; from intimate parties to maximum capacity crowds, they have kept audiences dancing from start to finish.

  • Having just moved to Brooklyn, singer-songwriter Nick Hakim is a New York newbie, but if his exceptional debut EP is any indication, the Washington, D.C. native is here to stay. Where Will We Go Pt. 1 is emotionally rich and runs the gamut of R&B, jazz, folk, and Motown, taking cues from greats like Marvin Gaye and Harry Nilsson. Despite subtly explicating late-night grievances of the heart and mind, Hakim's entrance into Brooklyn's music scene is one of grand proportions.

  • Now approaching their first decade as a band, it really has been an interesting journey for Patrick Watson and his cohorts. Having already played to over 100,000 people at the 2009 Montreal Jazz Festival, performed in fro nt of a full orchestra in 2011 in Amsterdam and again in Watson’s hometown of Montreal in 2013, and most recently performing two songs in Wim Wenders’s current 3D epic “E very Thing Will Be Fine”, what’s next? Releasing their most solid record yet, W atson and his band insist they have only just begun. Still standing proudly at the helm, Love Songs For Robots marks Patrick Watson’s 5 th release since Watson first galvanized this “temporary proj ect” in 2006 with the release of his critically acclaimed debut “Close To Paradise”. This calling card release would loudly announce his initial presence going on to sell we ll over 100,000 units. His latest installment in his already impressive body of w ork follows up on his utterly stunning 2012 release “Adventures In Your Own Backyard”. Signa tures like his hushed falsetto croon remains to be the vessel that transports his vast emotional depths, but Love Songs For Robots proudly shows Watson sailing out into uncharted waters once again. From the crawling crescendo of the opening ethereal soundsc ape of the title track that heralds the beginning of the album, the listener is slowly lured into Watson’s world that reveals musical moments that are as equally chal lenging as they are comforting. Destinations are cleverly concealed as we are invited to just take in the lush scenery that includes sharp experimental and progressive left turns, gra ndiose gestures that shoulder up against fearless austerity - and all delivered in a cris p panoramic scope that could only come from Watson’s lens. His hard fought lyrical pearls are now guided through new found psychedelic and soul swagger influences as left of ce nter instrumentation and arrangements covers up well beaten tracks and makes this a rewarding and truly original statement.

    Without a doubt Love Songs for Robots bears Watson’s indelible stamp and manages to create a piece of work that is not only stirring, darin g, and deeply personal, but also represents his creative watermark so far. It’s all too r are to see an artist wear their heart on their sleeve while never growing weary of the battle against cynicism and callousness, but Watson and band’s aim remains true.

  • Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches.

    Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!
