Kristian North - Halfway to Heaven 

Kristian North, former frontman for Babysitter, enters the scene with a new sound as a solo artist. The Montreal native ditches his grunge rock image for a new genre-bending sound, focusing on his lyricism to tell stories filled with confessions, desires, and mythical references. 

Halfway to Heaven is featured on his newest album Passion Play, a collection of love songs with deep-rooted themes of deception and failure under the surface. The single was written in Portugal and comes with inspiration from the warmth and romance of the country.

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.)
