Every day, musicians write, record and release new music in Ontario. On CBC Radio One's In the Key of C, we try to highlight some of our favourites each week.

You can hear the show live every Saturday evening at 5 p.m. ET on CBC Radio One in Ontario. In the Key of C can be heard across the province, except for in the GTA. Hamilton listeners can hear the segment in the player above.


Jessy Lanza: Oh No

Hamilton's Jessy Lanza just released a brand new video for Oh No.

Like most of her tunes, this is made to get people moving.

It pulses in an understated way that makes this track somehow feel like it's an 80s throwback — and from the not too distant future — all at the same time.

Ascendia: Remember Me

People in denim vests everywhere, rejoice — Ascendia's Remember Me is as earnest and tight a traditional metal track as you'll find in North America these days.

There are shades of progressive metal like Dream Theatre, and more traditional power/speed metal like Kamelot.

This track is a must listen for anyone who loves double kick and operatic vocals.

Ronley Teper and the Lipliners: Faith

This track from Ronley Teper and the Lipliners is just one huge, ascending cavalcade of sound.

The video is exceptionally cool too, and merits watching all on its own.

It's all surreal, hand-drawn animation, and It's very rare to see something this intricate today.
