NILLA (Sipset, Droppin Science)
2010 HMA Rap/Hip-Hop Recording of the Year winner, now Toronto-based rapper NiLLa, is currently touring her latest record “Valkyrie” produced by Ghettosocks. The album has been charting heavily on campus radio charts since it’s release in November (currently #4 Nationally), with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. This is NiLLa’s first official show back in her musical home-town of Hamilton in almost 6 years – a performance not to be missed! Listen to VALKYRIE here: www.nillamusic.com

LEE REED is a Hamilton OG and a respected veteran of the Canadian Indie HipHop scene. For over 20 years he’s been stomping stages and studios, spewing his unique brand of fiery, anti-capitalist rant-hop. From mouthpiece for the legendary punk-hop greats Warsawpack, and throughout his solo work that followed, Reed’s musical legacy remains committed to the fight for a better world; voicing intersectional anti-oppressive politics through HipHop; and soundtracking and signal-boosting the efforts of communities and organizers struggling on the frontline for social and environmental justice. His latest album, 2015’s anti-colonial/anti-nationalist anthem “The Butcher The Banker The Bitumen Tanker” spent 14 weeks on the national campus & community radio Top-10 charts, with 2 weeks at #1, ending the year as Canada’s #6 HipHop album.

HACHEY THE MOUTHPEACE
Hamilton’s own National Beatbox Treasure, Hachey The MouthPEACE needs no biography, for his name preceeds him and his incredible arsenal of vocal percussion. But just in case you need convincing, here are some of his most recent accomplishments:

-2015 Great North Loop Station Champion
-2013 Much Music BeatBox Champion
-2012/2015 Hamilton Music Award Winner
-2012 Hamilton Hip Hop Award Winner

MOTHER TAREKA
Sax blasting, direct acting, flute tooting, pedal pumping MC Mother Tareka is an adopted Hamilton son. 1 part activist, 1 part musician, all parts amazing.. Tarek is musically best known as the frontman for the Hamilton Hip-Hop-fusion outfit Mother Tareka & The Rebel Funktion (formerly the Greezy Steez). Made for anti-racism, anti-homophobia, anti-transphobia, anti-sexism, anarchist, and environmentalist movements! Check his latest release, “Elephants” available at: https://mothertareka.bandcamp.com/!

!KRYME WON
One of Hamilton’s finest turntablists, AND the 2016 Canadian National DMC Silver Champion – !Kryme Won is a pure gem in the Canadian Hip-Hop scene! With his finely tuned musical selections, scratching abilities, and an incrediblly humble nature, !Kryme Won never disappoints when he hits the decks!

SUNDAY KRIEF (with Patrick Krief of The Dears) plus ETHAN PAXTON & THE BRAKEMEN

Image may contain: one or more people and concert

KRIEF (with Patrick Krief of The Dears) plus ETHAN PAXTON & THE BRAKEMEN
Krief
Montreal singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Patrick Krief is taking a big stride with his 4th solo album Automanic, a work that’s truly epic, by every definition.

Following a devastating string of deaths in his life, and the end of a romance, Krief dealt with emotional trauma the way musicians do: by pouring all the heartbreak and grief and despair and fear into writing. His creative drive came with a dark underside of self- destruction, a phase he’s grateful to have emerged from relatively unscathed — stronger, even, but forever changed.

All of this is reflected in the 20 songs that make up Automanic Red and Automanic Blue, an unconventional double album. The two records, according to Krief, are “autonomous in their flow and not meant to be listened to in one sitting.” And yet, he continues, “releasing one without the other simply wouldn’t make any sense — the plot truly exists within the invisible line that bonds them.”

Krief, who has spent much of the past decade writing, touring and recording with Montreal’s original orchestral rock-noir band, the Dears, likens the distinctly different vibes of the two records as Thursday night and Sunday morning: Automanic Red is Thursday night, the reckless, kick-off to the weekend; songs like “All Is Lost,” “Darkometro” and “Mississippi” have a bold sound and brash lyrics fuelled by anger, anguish and ego. Conversely, Automanic Blue is Sunday morning — “Deo Gratias”, “The Mayan” and “Yearning” are some of its moments of sober reflection, grappling with reality, recognizing mortality.

What really ties Automanic together is Krief’s songwriting — lyrics that are at once earnest and abstract, personal poetry with universal reach — and a sound unbound by genre but encompassing myriad shades of contemporary pop and rock, from dreamy shoegazing soundscapes to the kind of arena rock balladry that elicits goosebumps and lighters held aloft.

To achieve these anthemic highs and introspective lows, Krief enlisted…himself. He played all the guitars, drums, percussion, piano and keyboards, producing the record between Studio Mixart in Montreal and Studio Bottega, located on an alpaca farm in Kelowna, B.C., with post- production happening in New York City and Toronto, where Automanic was mastered by Phil Demetro (Kevin Drew, Hey Rosetta).
That said, Krief didn’t make Automanic entirely on his own. Engineer David Schiffman (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Nine inch Nails) sat in on the Montreal sessions, singers Maia Davies and Sam Roberts (yes, that Sam Roberts) provided backing vocals, Kelowna’s Uptown Hornz brought the brass, Kate Maloney played violin, Justin Wright played cello and Krief’s longtime collaborator Roberto Piccioni played various instruments and assisted in the making of the album.

Documenting a period of shared grief and internal crisis in a song or a record (or two records) isn’t unique, but Automanic isn’t a mere document — it’s an opus work, made by a musician who was pushed to the brink, and propelled to a creative peak.

Singer needed for rock band #hamontmusic #hamont

We are looking for a singer to sing primarily rock tunes that will focus on entertaining a crowd and getting people on the dance floor.  While our focus is on rock after 1990, we do some classic rock as well.  We just try to stay away from the songs that were already way overdone by the time the cell phone was invented.  

 
You should be able to sing in tune and have a reasonable range.  You should be able to commit yourself to a light schedule of a single weekly practice and an intended gig schedule of about 1-2x per month.  You should be able to learn songs on your own and have them prepared for practice so that our time is spent most productively.  And finally, you should be easy-going and easy to work with.  Above all, we want this to be fun.  We don’t want it to feel like going to work.  
 
From us, you can expect the same.  We are experienced musicians who primarily grew up on music from the 70’s-80’s.  You can expect us to be very easy to work with.  Though our experiences are varied, we are all quite competent on our instruments.  The drummer and guitarist were in an original band for a few years that played festival main stages, various local clubs, got radio play, and was asked to open up for various recording artists.   We have a bass player that has switched over from guitar, and we have a place to practice.
 
Our set list consists partly of the following artists:  Foo Fighters, The Cult, Pearl Jam, Franz Ferdinand, Kings of Leon, My Chemical Romance, Tragically Hip, Collective Soul, James Gang, etc.  Be sure, though, that whatever a singer brings to the table has a direct influence on what songs we will sound best doing, so anything that is or is not on our list is entirely up for revision.
 Contact info is:  themotes@cogeco.ca, christondreau@gmail.com, langdenexpress@gmail.com

“catl. can pull dancers to their feet, shake a sweaty room silly and convince
you that maybe another tequila before last call isn’t such a bad idea afterall.”

EXCLAIM! | Toronto ON |

Toronto’s catl. have been hibernating all winter, working away feverishly on brand new tunes for a brand new full-length
record
! Now that spring has officially sprung, they’re gearing up for a full season of touring, including a trip to the Juke Joint
Festival in Mississippi. Before drive down the I-75, they’re gonna be spicin’ up Hamilton by road testing the new tunes for the
good folks at The Casbah! That’s right Hamilton, you get to hear them first! Spring is in the air and rock and roll is in our loins,
so come out to the party and dance!

 This high-energy duo featuring Sarah K. slammin’ the stand-up drum-kit, and Jamie Fleming bashing away on the ol’ Gretsch
archtop, will make you sweat and shimmy all night long! Come on, we dare you not to dance!
