Everyday I get at least 5 emails about new Canadian artists, bands, concerts etc. Sometimes it takes me a while to listen to all the music in order for me to give a proper review, as a result I’ve deprived you of some goodness. Yes, I know, I’m sorry. But let’s be honest, everybody has different tastes in music so it doesn’t really matter what I think right? Sometimes people like the same music, sometimes they don’t. I listen to ALL kinds of music, anything that moves me or gives me that tingly feeling of excitement is good with me. I’d rather share the music, video etc with you when I receive it that way we can all take it in together, as well as give feedback. So in order to show my appreciation to all the people that have reached out to me; I’m introducing a new music segment called “Music eh!” Feel free to recommend a different title, but for now it is what it is 🙂
The segment will feature links to exclusive downloads, concerts, new artists, bands… pretty much every thing that is, the Canadian music industry. Again feel free to comment and let us know what you think as it’s a good way to give the artists feedback, and gives us a chance to engage in a little conversation.
peace, love and health

Ooooh… I luv ur way ~ Lily AllenYeah… so perhaps it is predictable, but how could I resist??? I almost feel this natural obligation to feature UK celebs/talent and share… from one homeland to another!!! Thus featuring: Lily Allen. As though her bad ass, “I don’t give a #^$%” persona wasn’t enough to grab any one’s attention; her fashion sense is the biz… she just makes it work! Aside from THAT, try to resist becoming addicted to her soulful sound and the way that she takes relatable lyrics (coded at times) and puts them on beats that one can’t help but bob their heads to! While critics are often skeptical about her talent, she has received awards and recognition from the masses, although I will warn that her “lyrical content may be seen as offensive by some audiences”! Featured with Common on “Drivin’ Me Wild” brought her sound to the North American charts but Ms. Allen has been winning hearts in the UK since… 1995, all starting with a MySpace page!!! And what’s next for Lily Allen? After having launched her own line of dresses, shoes and accessories titled ‘Lily Loves’, she currently has no plans to make another album and did not renew her record contract. It seems her “special relationship” with Chanel has channelled her efforts that-a-way… she’s scheduled to open a clothing rental boutique!
The song that brought her to the urban market… in my opinion
My all-time fav Lily Allen song; picture Me, Mum, bacon butties and Sunday morning BBC3
remix feat. Wale ~ produced by Marc Ronson & featured on Wale’s ‘100Miles and Running’ Mixtape
Don’t be afraid of the title, take in the lyrics
