Toronto-based producer Harrison and Montreal-based singer Daniela Andrade built their music careers online, where they found a captive audience.

It was Soundcloud and YouTube that first embraced each of them and even helped connect them to each other. 

They join Tom Power to share some new music and chat about the opportunities and pressures of being artists in the digital age. You can hear Andrade on Harrison's latest album Apricity, which is out now.
