Propter Hawk is a Canadian rock and roll band from Toronto, composed of Malorie Blake, Alec McEachern, Andrew Blake, Brian Derro, and Jimmy Ruddock, formed in 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic out of rival bands New Commuters and The Ramblers. Fronted by pocket-rocket, Malorie Blake in her vocal debut, the band got directly to work writing their first album – which touches on themes of nostalgia, mental health, addiction, and countless social issues – told through dynamic instrumentation, rousing guitar, lyrical storytelling, and an expressive chorus of backing vocals. Propter Hawk has emerged on the scene to showcase their forcefully captivating vision of a new era of
rock and roll.

Cynical Afterthoughts started with a desire to create memorable music with a diverse group of musicians. The songs became a way to express the angst and frustration derived from personal experiences. The combined effort of Polina, James, Mauricio and Mustafa has involved hundreds of hours of writing, reviewing and practicing our new 9 track album. It is our bands pleasure to bring this music to the public and make our imprint in the Toronto music scene. Presenting Cynical Afterthoughts.

The Muddy York Blues Machine is a “new blues” band based in Toronto, Canada. With diverse musical backgrounds and influences, the Machine's music is emotionally powerful, well performed, and always played with passion. From the muddy streets of old Toronto to the sky-scraping metropolis it has become, long live the blues! The Muddy York Blues Machine are: Veronica McNamee (lead vocals), Kirk Reed (guitar/backup vocals), Kevin Ellis (bass/backup vocals), Kevin Costa (drums), Douglas Nowlan (keys).
