Erik Hassle has found the groove in his sound.
The soul-pop singer has been making musical waves since the release of his first single, “Hurtful”, in Sweden back in 2008. Hassle’s music has gone through a natural evolution through the years, while maintaining the soulfulness and lyrically wearing his heart on his sleeve.
I had the opportunity to chat with Erik last week, just before he hit the stage at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver, and before he found out he was on top of Taylor Swift’s playlist.
Jon McLaughlin is gearing up to release his new album Like Us on October 9th, and will be supporting the release with a US tour. We had the opportunity to chat with him about his musical inspirations, songwriting, and what to expect from his new album.
In a city like Vancouver, the love of good music is perhaps matched by our passion for hockey.
With the playoffs on the horizon this month, we thought it only made sense to intersect music and hockey. JPNSGRLS were kind enough to take some time to catch up with us to chat not only about the Vancouver Canucks, but also what they’ve been up to. Their debut album Circulation saw its UK release earlier this week, and the band will be heading on tour in Europe later this month.
It was just over a year ago that Alex & Sierra charmed our television screens and ears for the first time.
There was magic in the chemistry that Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton shared both on and off the stage. The duo became the first group to win The X Factor USA crown, tallying the highest number of votes from viewers every single week. The vision that Alex & Sierra shared for their music was evident from their reworking of songs that they performed on the show.
Last week, we had the opportunity to chat with Alex & Sierra over the phone about making their new album and the fans.
I had the opportunity to chat with lead singer Matthew Healy before The 1975 played to a sold-out crowd at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver. He provided insight on genres, touring globally, and the inspiration behind the video for their new single, “Robbers”.
