Genre: Rock
Related: Sam Roberts Band, Frank Turner, Hey Rosetta!
Song: American Screams
Notes: As we get closer and closer to Rally Cry, our anticipation is growing. And now that Arkells have released American Screams, you can add another reason to our list of reasons we're excited for the new album. American Screams is another track charged by current events and politics. Add another one to the list of protest songs we're here for!

Song: Trust My Lonely
Notes: Trust My Lonely is the newest release from Grammy-winner, Alessia Cara, and it's a winner. The track will be on her upcoming sophomore album, The Pains Of Growing, and if it's any indication of what we can expect from the record, we can't wait to hear it all.

Artist: Kira Isabella
Hometown: Ottawa, ON
Genre: Country
Related: Meghan Patrick, Madeline Merlo, MacKenzie Porter
Song: Danger Danger
Notes: Kira Isabella's powerful voice is on full display on Danger Danger. And that's not all. The young Canadian country veteran has fun with the song and adds it to a long list of releases that we've loved in her career. Be ready to hear fans singing along to this one at live shows soon!

Artist: Joey Landreth
Hometown: Winnipeg, ON
Genre: Roots Rock/Country
Related: The Bros. Landreth, Johnson Crook, Roman Clarke
Song: Dangerous Heart
Notes: The combination of Joey Landreth's songwriting, voice, and guitar skills is A+++, and on Dangerous Heart all three are on display. Hit play, sit back and let it all wash over you as you tap your feet and wish there was more.

Artist: Jojo Mason
Hometown: Regina, SK
Genre: Country
Related: Andrew Hyatt, Shawn Austin, Chris Buck Band
Song: Future
Notes: Jojo Mason sings about love as well as anyone in the country music business. On Future, he does it with an uptempo, quick talk style that mixes with a big chorus that will hit hard up on stage. Turn it up!

Artist: The Lovelocks
Hometown: Toronto, ON
Genre: Country
Related: Leaving Thomas, Jess Moskaluke, Terri Clark
Song: Good Way To Go
Notes: The Lovelocks announced this week that they've reached the end of the road. The Toronto country duo has been a favourite of ours over the last few years with amazing harmonies and fantastic live performances to go with the fact that Ali and Zoe are both truly fantastic people. Good Way To Go has been released as their goodbye, and while we love it, it's bittersweet. The Lovelocks voices shine one more time as they sing, "if your love's the last thing that I know, it'd be a good way to go.". ❤️🔒
