Owenshire is the solo project of Robert Muhlbock. Rob is a professor at Fanshaw College in London ON.
In 2011, finally making good on his recurrent New Year's Resolution to "do something with [his] music," Robert Muhlbock began posting every song he has ever written to the internet under the official (and final) band name of Owenshire. Social networking profiles were registered, and artwork is being created as you read this.
In essence, Robert Muhlbock is living his life in reverse, filling in the years that were "supposed" to be filled with Owenshire albums, videos, interviews, and art. Owenshire have 11 albums worth of material: all sequenced and all titled. Once everything is posted to the internet, the real work begins: recruiting people to help turn each and every "live demo" into a fully-fledged studio song.
The City Streets
From: Montreal QC
Song:Nothing Can Be Planned
The City Streets, hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada formed in 2005. They relocated to Montreal in late 2009. They play diverse melodic power pop/rock with the spirit of punk rock rattling around underneath.
'Pretenders' will be their 6th full length LP, out in spring 2013.
They have toured North America extensively, visiting almost every province and state at least once, and performing in Haiti/Mexico. The City Streets have played over 450 shows and counting.
The members of the City Streets are: Rick Reid, songwriter, vocals and guitar, Matt Leddy, bass, backup vocals, Mark Chmilar drums and art/graphic design.
From: Toronto On (originally)
Song: What I Believe
Amber says music is not just her passion, its her life, her soul and her purpose.
Her self-produced solo project “it”, a follow up the successful “tRip”, was released this
and is another example of the power in the perfect combination of styles and sounds. Along with
vocals not to be forgotten, Amber uses instruments, processors, samples and loopers to put
together her multi-faceted electronic musical creations. To her, they are not just tracks, they are
steps on her journey exploring her passions, and steps closer to achieving her dream life – which,
she would tell you, we are all meant to do.
From: Toronto ON
