Welland Ontario resident Spencer Burton first came to many concertgoers attention as the guitarist in Attack in Black. Since that band's dissolution, he's taken to performing and recording under the moniker Grey Kingdom. On his latest record, Light, I'll Call your Name Out "Darkness" Burton is joined by former Attack In Black members Ian and Daniel Romano to deliver a series of lonely, echoing country songs.
Half of neo-psychedelia band Cats Eyes, Canadian soprano Rachel Zeffira has been gaining critical accolades around the world for her recent solo album The Deserters.

Often recognized as a key figure in the city's hip hop scene, Toronto musician K-OS has occasionally found himself at odds with this genre-based definition of his performance. In fact, straight up guitar n' drums rawk are often as much of an influence on his music as turntablism and rhymes. On his recently released double recording Black on Blonde, K-OS makes these complementary influences on his music explicit; the first album "Black" is composed of Hip Hop tracks, while the second, "Blonde" is largely funky rock n' roll, featuring such guests as Sam Roberts and Sebastan Grainger (DFA 1979).
