Participants included <strong>Les Moon Tunes</strong>, <strong>Bleum</strong>, <strong>McKinley Morrison &amp; Williams</strong>, and <strong>Delirious Monks</strong>. Each finalist performed on Saturday, September 14, and was judged on talent, originality and stage presence by a panel of music industry experts. A pre-event voting campaign took place with over 3000 people voting online. Votes were also taken from members of the audience on that afternoon. The panel of industry judges comprised half of the final vote tally and the audience and online voting represented the remaining half. Once all the votes were tallied<strong> McKinley Morrison &amp; Williams were announced as the winners of the $1,500 prize. </strong></span></span></span></span></p> <figure role="group" class="caption caption-img align-center"><img alt="McKinley Morrison &amp; Williams" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="927ff17f-0e0d-484e-a99e-16f6a89685d8" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/MMW%206.jpg" /><figcaption>McKinley Morrison &amp; Williams </figcaption></figure><p class="text-align-justify"><br /><span><span><span><span lang="EN" xml:lang="EN" xml:lang="EN"><span><span>Born from creativity and a desire to be free in music, Josh McKinley, John Morrison, and Darrell Williams have brought their musical tastes together to form a completely original sound that is sonically comparable to jazz, Latin, world, funk, and fusion. This forging of musicianship has opened a side of music that is exciting and fresh, mixing sounds of the past with sounds of the present.</span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN" xml:lang="EN" xml:lang="EN"><span><span>Josh McKinley has been playing guitar since he was 13 years old. It was a childhood passion that he started to take more seriously after finishing school. Since then, he has played with and founded almost a dozen New Brunswick groups, has toured all the Maritime provinces with multiple bands and has toured halfway across Canada several times. Never having taken formal music or guitar lessons, Josh has adapted over his career to form a natural &amp; original approach to the guitar. He has been recorded on 7 albums and is no stranger to sitting in with artists and groups in a live and studio setting. Music is magic, and while listening to Josh play the guitar, that is what you can expect to feel.</span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN" xml:lang="EN" xml:lang="EN"><span><span>John Morrison has been playing drums professionally for over 20 years. He has left New Brunswick and toured internationally several times, playing to crowds of 50,000+ people. John has studied with a few notable Maritime drum teachers including Joe McIntyre &amp; Norman Calp. In 2008, he was featured on the cover of Drum etc... Canadian drum magazine and participated in a drum competition in Toronto, Canada where he won the fastest stroke competition. John is an absolute beast behind the kit and has been compared to drummers such as Buddy Rich.</span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN" xml:lang="EN" xml:lang="EN"><span><span>Darrell Williams may as well have been born with a bass guitar. He has been playing music professionally for 40 years. Born in Yonkers, New York, Darrell made his way to Canada in 1979 touring North America with a show band. In 1989 he settled down in New Brunswick and began tearing up the East Coast music scene, changing the boundaries of how people looked at the bass guitar. Darrell has played with many great artists over the years including Dave Wilcox, Matt Anderson and Jeff Healey. When Darrell straps his bass on, something crazy is about to happen and you don’t want to miss it.</span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span lang="EN" xml:lang="EN" xml:lang="EN"><span>McKinley Morrison &amp; Williams have been playing and touring together for a little over two years. In their short career, they have made a significant mark on the East Coast music scene while playing at music festivals and by creating their own brand of an intimate show experience called the “Uptown Jazz Ball,” fusing music, art, and food. MMW currently reside in New Brunswick, Canada. They have released one live album to date as a group and have been recorded together in the studio for several albums as a session band. </span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN" xml:lang="EN" xml:lang="EN"><span><span>These three musicians enjoy pleasing audiences with their tasteful and explosive jams. At a McKinley Morrison &amp; Williams show, you can expect a melodic and groove-based musical fusion, bass solos, guitar wizardry, and a drum clinic. Get out to see these cats!</span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <figure role="group" class="caption caption-img align-center"><img alt="McKinley Morrison &amp; Williams (Josh McKinley, John Morrison &amp; Darrell Williams) with Stingray's Kenton Dunphy (New Country 92.3 (CFRK) and UP 93.1 FM (CIHI) - Photo redits: James West." data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="199198cb-e997-4d9c-8c76-74d5c29c1f8c" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/LRM_EXPORT_26185656361286_20190914_160602780.jpeg" /><figcaption>McKinley Morrison &amp; Williams (Josh McKinley, John Morrison &amp; Darrell Williams) with Stingray's Kenton Dunphy (New Country 92.3 (CFRK) and UP 93.1 FM (CIHI)) - Photo credits: James West.</figcaption></figure><div class="row-wrapper wysiwyg"> <div class="row row-narrow"> <div class="col"> <p class="text-align-justify"> </p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><strong><span><span>What’s your earliest music memory?</span></span></strong></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span>Josh: I remember my friend and I, at age 4 and 5 standing in his front yard strumming broomsticks, rocking out hard like we were on a big stage. </span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span>John: My mother's steel band that practiced at the house when I was five or six.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><strong><span><span>Who’s your influences?</span></span></strong></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span>Josh: I listened to an eclectic variety of music growing up. Throughout my life, I have always jived with Paul Simon. Funk and rock took over when I discovered Jimi Hendrix's Band of Gypsys, and then jazz, classical and world music.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span>John: I have listened to everything and take it all in as much as I can.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><strong><span><span>What’s your best memory on stage?</span></span></strong></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span>Josh: Too many cool moments with these cats. One of my favorites was John's drum solo at Dooryard Festival. The stage lost all power and lights moments before the solo started. John goes for it anyways with no PA and no stage lights and the crowd gathered closer to the stage to hear and see better. Near the end of the drum solo, the techs figured out the problem and everything came back on! We ended the song with full sound and lights again almost as if it was planned. </span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span>John: Probably Follyfest 2018. The crowd was wild and really into the set from start to finish.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span> <strong>Who is your favorite musician or band?</strong></span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span>Josh: I'd have to say Paul Simon. He has stuck with me most of my life as an influence and I still love his music today.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span>John: Vinnie Colaiuta, phenomenal drummer and musician.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><strong><span><span>What’s your Favorite genre?</span></span></strong></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span>Josh: Tough one. I enjoy listening to many styles of music. Lately, world music and jazz music have been my go-to. </span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span>John: I like all of the genres.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><strong><span><span>What’s the best part of East Coast scene?</span></span></strong></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span>Josh: The friendships. Music really helps tie the provinces together and creates friendships and bonds between people who live in different areas. Not only for musicians, but also for the patrons attending the performances and festivals. It is nice to travel to a different city to play music, and almost feel like going home at the same time.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span>John: Best part of the New Brunswick scene? The people are very nice and really supportive of live music.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong><span><span><span><span>Congratulations on winning the Stingray Rising Stars award! What do you plan to do with the $1500 prize?</span></span></span></span></strong></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span>Josh: We will be putting that money towards recording our first studio album. Hoping to head into the studio late fall and through the winter! We are planning to record at Trillium Studios in Saint John.</span></span></span></span></p> </div> </div> </div> <figure role="group" class="caption caption-img align-center"><img alt="Darrell Williams from McKinley Morrison &amp; Williams accepting the Stingray Rising Stars award - Photo credits: James West" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="290e8725-b732-4a00-a112-257902d6dbae" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/LRM_EXPORT_26226722202199_20190914_160643846.jpeg" /><figcaption>Darrell Williams from McKinley Morrison &amp; Williams accepting the Stingray Rising Stars award - Photo credits: James West</figcaption></figure><p> </p> <p><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.

This year Stingray Music was honoured to sponsor again the Stingray Rising Stars competition. </strong></p> <p>The festival which ran this year from September 11th to the 16th is one of Atlantic Canada’s largest annual jazz and blues festivals. HJBF seeks out to promote, preserve and encourage interest in the cultural appreciation and performance of jazz and blues by presenting the best in established and up-and-coming talents. Fredericton comes alive for six days each September as hundreds of world class performers appear on dozens of stages, all conveniently located in Fredericton's beautiful and historic downtown.</p> <p>An online voting page was set up to have the public vote for their favourite artist. This year’s finalists were:</p> <ul><li><a href="https://thebackstays.bandcamp.com/" target="_blank">The Backstays </a></li> <li><a href="https://jerryfaye.bandcamp.com/" target="_blank">Jerry Faye</a> </li> <li><a href="https://shrimpring.bandcamp.com/" target="_blank">Shrimp Ring</a> </li> <li><a href="https://digitalcircusband.bandcamp.com/" target="_blank">Digital Circus</a> </li> </ul><p> </p> <p>The Stingray Rising Stars Competition took place in the Atlantic Lottery Barracks Tent, the festival's all ages venue, on Friday September 14 from 1 PM to 4 PM. The Backstays, a five-piece, fog-steeped, roots-infused indie band from Saint John (NB), were chosen through a two-tiered process of peer assessment and online voting. Stingray Music awarded the winning band with a $1,500 bursary to advance their career and each contestant received a promotional video for their own use of their Stingray Rising Stars performance. Close to 5,000 people voted online this year and the winner was announced, Friday, September 14 at 4PM. Thank you to all who cast their votes online and who came to watch the finalists showcase performances at the Atlantic Lottery Barracks Tent!</p> <p>“The Backstays displayed their growing maturity as a group by showing up fully prepared and putting on an exceptional performance. We hope this “win” gives them a boost of confidence and some additional notoriety that helps accelerate their opportunities in the music business and the pursuit of their musical dreams!” said Brent Staeben, Harvest’s music director.</p> <p>Congrats again to The Backstays and all finalists!</p> <h3>About the winners:</h3> <p><strong>We sat down with Pete Johnston here from The Backstays (vocals, guitar) to tell us more about their win: </strong></p> <p><strong>What is your earliest musical memory? </strong></p> <p>“My earliest musical memory is ‘Up On Cripple Creek’ by The Band. My parents are big fan of those guys and so am I. I remember that being my favourite song as a tiny little kid. Either that or some version of ‘Tell Me Ma’ that my mum sang around the house. Hard to say.”</p> <p><strong>Where/When did you start playing professionally? </strong></p> <p>“We started rehearsing in January 2018 in our rehearsal space on Union Street in Saint John (New-Brunswick). We didn’t do a show until June, so it’s only been a few months doing shows together. But most of the band has been playing music on a semi-professional level for years in other projects.”</p> <p><strong>Who are your main influences? </strong></p> <p>“Our influences vary but there’s some consistent musicians that we all love like Joel Plaskett, Alvvays, the Smiths, Bruce Springsteen, and the War on Drugs.”</p> <p><strong>How did you come to play at the Harvest Jazz &amp; Blues Festival? </strong></p> <p>“We came to Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival’s Stingray Rising Stars by applying after we had a string of shows and an EP released. We really didn’t expect it but we’re some happy.”</p> <p><strong>What do you plan to do with the Stingray Rising Stars bursary? </strong></p> <p>“We are going to use it to get some gear we’ve needed for a long time and use anything left to put towards our Maritimes tour in the next couple of months. It’s really a huge help.”</p> <p>If you’re in the Atlantic region this Autumn, make sure to follow them and <a href="https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheBackstays/events/" target="_blank">check out one of their shows</a>! </p> <p><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.

At this time we were very young and we all looked for something to do between south Algeria and Lybia. Then Ibrahim found his first guitar and brought it in the desert and spent time learning to play, fastly all our generation was very excited with this modern instrument, and all of us with their problems love to speak, to sing in this modern music!</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><img src="/sites/blog/files/2018-03-Tinariwen/%40MariePlaneille-%20tinariwen%20Elwan%20press%2012.jpg" width="5760" height="3840" alt="@MariePlaneille- tinariwen Elwan press 12.jpg" /></p> <h3><span><span><span><strong><span><span>How has your music evolved since you first began playing music together?</span></span></strong></span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span><span><span>Since the first time our inspiration comes naturally from our situation, directly from our traditional music, and day after day we know more and more how to play guitar! </span></span></span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span><strong><span><span>How would you define “desert blues”?
