Ghost Caravan: Shine On

By Kerry Doole

Ghost Caravan - "Shine On" (the Confidence Emperors): Ghost Caravan is a collaborative project built around the songs and voice of Shaina Silver-Baird.  A debut album, T.O. Confidential, is being readied, preceded by this formidable track and video, released today (Aug. 31).


"Shine On" is co-written by Silver-Baird, Hill Kourkoutis (The Launch, SATE), Juliana Iannuzziello and Tim Abraham, with Kourkoutis handling the production duties. The tune is lushly-layered electro-pop with a rousing chorus and an upbeat message in a genre that usually stresses the dark or melancholy. The Ghost Caravan sound is described as orchestral soultronica, mixing electronic elements with a widescreen orchestral sound, and this track showcases that.

The video for the track is the directorial debut of Elise Bauman, star of the popular web series Carmilla. 

On her forthcoming album, Shaina Silver-Baird collaborated with members of the Weeknd, Grand Analog, Martha and the Muffins, the Four On The Floor String Quartet and many others. In a label bio, Silver-Baird explains that "It felt like a whole village came together to make this record and I’m so grateful to that community. I love creating music with other people.The result is so much better because of the many points of view, different opinions and experiences that are woven into each song.”

 Ghost Caravan plays a TIFF party at The Horseshoe in Toronto on Sept. 10, with a vinyl release show set for Supermarket in T.O. on Oct. 6.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
