Kandle - Honey Trap

Kandle Osborne is a singer-songwriter from British Columbia who balances the sounds of cabaret and rock in her music. Some of Kandle’s musical role models include Nancy Sinatra, Billie Holiday, and Shirley Bassey. During the summer of 2020, Kandle dropped her first EP as an independent artist  - Stick Around and Find Out - which earned her critical praise from both national and international publications. Since putting out that EP, Kandle has also released the album Set the Fire' in 2021 and an EP titled Inferno in 2022.

The music video for Kandle’s song“Honey Trap, from her 2021 album, is a pink hued edgy dream. Flipping between concert-like scenes of the band singing to scenes of Kandle and her band seemingly about to do something dangerous - the video keeps you on your toes, leaving you to wonder what’s going to happen. Throughout the video we also have these really cool reflection shots with mirrors galore. Near the end of the video we see a man start to get control, trapping the women, but they want to regain their power - which is reflected in the lyrics. Overall, this video is powerful, gritty and a great watch. 

Listen to Kandle’s latest album Inferno on audio streaming services. Of note: She is the daughter of 54-40 frontman Neil Osborne, and the pair have performed and recorded together.

The Beaches Bring "Blame Brett" to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

The Toronto quartet brought their viral single into their late night TV debut.

Following the viral success of "Blame Brett" in 2023, The Beaches have made their late night TV debut, performing their naming-and-blaming single on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Though the Toronto band has been together for a decade, winning a 2018 Juno for Breakthrough Artist following their debut album, last yearmarked a watershed moment for the quartet. They traded their heavier rock sound for sleek new wave guitar tones and took back control of their career, deciding to release their new album, Blame My Ex, independently. (They co-wrote the album with Canadian artist and songwriter Lowell, who also has a credit on Beyoncé's newest hit.)
