This is a new alternative folk/rock release from award-winning alt-rocker, Jordan Paul.  I think it would be a great fit on the station!

Some info on the record and artist:

With symbolic inspiration from English poet William Blake’s late 18th century works — including The Four Zoas — Jordan Paul’s new EP, “Night Moon,” is the Canadian alt-rocker’s self-professed sonic probe into the seemingly opposing yet harmonious forces that encompass all things ‘human nature.’

“Night Moon is about the nature of every being,” he reflects, “and the complex interplay of elements that fuse together to form the whole of all that is within and without us.

“It is the contrast of dark and light… Of life and death… Of every opposing force that must exist in twisted harmony as all things seek homeostasis and balance at all times.”

So far, “Night Moon” has proven ultimate evolution in Jordan Paul’s distinctive style. His music boasts notes of delicate, spacious, exploratory alt. folk/rock — all with a shadowy edge.  Paul has been dubbed “Canada’s Jeff Buckley” by three-time GRAMMY Award-winning producer Chris Birkett (Led Zeppelin, Talking Heads, Buffy Sainte-Marie). Sleeping Bag Studios’ Jeremy Gladstone has mused he’d be the result “if Queen, Mimicking Birds, Radiohead and Led Zeppelin had a beautiful love child.”

As a songwriter, he has worked with 18 GRAMMY Award-winning producer James Sanger (U2, Dido, Phil Collins), Darryl James of The Strumbellas (Double Platinum in Canada; Gold in USA and Australia), Matt Lipscombe (Lily Frost, Bran Van 3000), Amanda Mabro (Ron Sexsmith), Martin Kerr (#1 in Canada), Khalid Yassein (Wild Rivers), Chris Cargnello, and more. His music has received notable sync placements including The CW’s ‘The Secret Circle,’ Shaw TV’s ‘When Paintings Come Alive,’ MTV's 'Real World,’  BBC Canada’s ‘Orphan Black,’ and LaJoie De Vie's short-film ‘Best Budz.’  

Paul's forthcoming studio record, “Already Gone” will ultimately feature 11 original songs, including “Night Moon.” The album was recorded at Jon Anderson’s (Aidan Knight, Andy Shauf, Said The Whale) Protection Island Studios in Maple Ridge, BC and mastered by Noah Mintz (Marcy Playground, Broken Social Scene, Matt Mays).

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Jordan Paul

Hey there,

I'm writing you to ask for your consideration to include music from Rabbit Hole's newest album, Blue Attitude on your radio program.

The title track, "Blue Attitude", is performing best on streaming services, and is therefore our choice for a radio single. "When In Rome" and "Living Proof" would be our next choices.

We appreciate your consideration.

Music Submission, Zilverbacks

Artist or Band Name: 

After 8 months of creative exploration, frustration, despair, excitement and frequent existential crises, Zilverbacks has now released the complete aftermath to the world. The album reveals a haunting and often challenging ride with vibrant layers of guitars, offset against a throaty and coarse vocal delivery; drawing comparisons to an early King Krule. The latest single ‘Breakthrough‘ sounds like a Clean Cut Kid record but with more punch, accompanied by lead vocalist Chris Harris distinct vocal tone. The boldness and sense of spirit only serves to add to Zilverback’s personality, a personable and genuine musician who sings with raw emotion.

Set in four separate releases, the stereo mix leans more onto grunge than indie-rock, while the sonic landscape created by multi-instrumentalist Harris almost crosses into the realm of confrontation. The lyricism follows the solum themes of loss, death and insanity set against the backdrop of a beautifully organic and robust instrumental. Unable to read music and with no formal musical education under his belt, the task of producing the entirety of the album in his bedroom would have seemed almost impossible, however within just half a year he has created a diversely powerful collection of evocative lyrics and eclectic sounds that have made many pay attention to his musicianship and songwriting abilities. Without the aid of any professional studio equipment, his portfolio must be considered an impressive body of work at the least.
