Night Court - Katrina Burgoyne - Bad Pelicans - Nikki Lane

Night Court - Surfin' Iona. "Surfin' Iona" is the third video from Night Court's second album - "Nervous Birds Too." A tongue-in-cheek, surf-punk ear worm featuring lead vocals by Emilor to make it sound more like the B-52’s. Shot on location in cloudy Richmond, British Columbia! Vancouver power trio Night Court was born during the great lockdown 2020 with lifelong friends Jiffy and Dave emailing each other song ideas. Using Jiffy’s old Tascam 4-track and stolen recording software, they guerilla recorded what would become Night Court’s earworm-riddled debut duology – Nervous Birds! One and Too.  The addition of Emilor on drums perfected the band, and conditions were now optimal for Night Court to release itself upon the world of rock.

Fresh off the road after supporting Thomas Headon on his recent UK tour, Alex Amor teamed up with Mack Jamieson and Gianluca Buccellati who produced “Colour Me”, the latter known for his work on Arlo Parks' Grammy-nominated album Collapsed In Sunbeams. Glowing with star quality, Alex Amor finds a delicate balance between indie and dreamlike alt-pop as she gracefully describes the arrival of a special person using a lyrical pallet awash with colour: "Pocket full of sunshine / Need shades to see her / Golden in the day time". Speaking on the release of “Colour Me”, Alex Amor said: "When you’re in a dark place, life can seem grey, monotonous and stale. But sometimes, all it takes is for one person to come crashing into your life for the world to come back in blazing colour. Falling in

Based in Toronto, Rosanne Baker Thornley is an internationally recognized, award-winning singer/ songwriter who writes with an impressive and growing number of international emerging and established artists. RBT has been evolving and expanding her relationship with music (and writing) for quite some time. With her new album, Sorry I'm Late, to be released September 2022, she further delves into her craft, cultivating songs from an intensely personal space. Like all the songs on Sorry I'm Late, new single "Because of Me," is inspired by personal experience. This song is about someone who always arrived tangled, who willingly succumbed to a vulnerable version of themselves, and who left less tangled.  It's about changing that someone to their benefit and how those changes in them, while to the betterment of others in their life, challenges those same people. It's about the realization and the risk to the person who is the
