On a record-breakingly hot Canada Day, Stingray Music visited the nation’s capital again this year to attend the 2018 TD Ottawa Jazz Festival. We were welcomed with incredible music, yummy food, and the chance to provide 3 bursaries to deserving new talent.
One of Canada's next big things, Francesco Yates, joined PausePlay for a chat about his enormous #Frollet, his writing process, sharing a stage with Justin Timberlake, and when we can expect his first full-length album.
The 2018 JUNO Awards were rich in love, empowering statements, kindness, and what’s most important: humans from around the world celebrated Canadian bands and artists from Coast to Coast to Coast. Here are Stingray PausePlay's exclusive interviews with some of the best Canadian talent.
Canadian music legends, Our Lady Peace, join PausePlay host, Zac Monson, to chat about life in the 90s, fears of relevancy, the Tragically Hip, pants ripping, Kendrick Lamar collabs, and so so much more!
Yes, this is a “TOP TEN” list, but these albums don’t need to be rated or organized from best to slightly less-best. There is no countdown here, any of these albums could sit anywhere on a list of ten. We just loved these albums and wanted you to love them like we do.
The Seasons formed in Beauport, Quebec in the winter of 2011. The Chiasson brothers Hubert & Julien (vocals & guitars) had a desire to share the collection of hooks and melodies turning in their minds with the world, and so, Julien called up Rémi (drums & percussion) who brought along Sam (bass) and the band was formed. The chemistry was instantaneous. After a few weeks in their parents' basement, a fully grown batch of original songs was brewed and they realized immediately that they were part of something bigger than themselves.
