3 new Ontario songs you need to hear this week
Check out new music from Tim Moxam, Cat Clyde and Chad McCoy
Every day, musicians write, record and release new music in Ontario — so each week, we're bringing you some of our favourites.
Music columnist Adam Carter is on CBC Radio One's In the Key of C on Saturdays, with your guide to what's new and exciting in Ontario music.
Here are this week's picks:
Tim Moxam: Honesty
Tim Moxam just released a new video for Honesty. It's on his newest album Marlborough Hall, which drops on March 29.
I love the jazzy backbeat here, coupled with the soul influence in the vocals — and this chorus is guaranteed to stick with you long after the song is done.
That this video is so well produced and directed certainly doesn't hurt either.
Cat Clyde: All the Black
Every so often I come across the voice of someone who is just meant to be singing.
Cat Clyde is one of those people.
The power in this vocal track is remarkable.
Chad McCoy: Great Team
Great Team is the latest from Chad McCoy, and it bounces along in that Hold Steady sort of tradition.
Gruff vocals and pop hooks don't always blend seamlessly, but there's no question they do here.
