Jon Stancer is mad as hell and he’s not taking it anymore. Like many of us, the Toronto singer/songwriter has become fed up with the daily barrage of lies emanating from south of the border to the point that he’s chosen to fight back in the best way he knows how — with a pull-no-punches single and video entitled “Not Far From The Truth,” which premieres exclusively today at Tinnitist.
“Like millions of people around the world, I’ve been dismayed, angered, outraged and at times, terrified at what’s been happening in the U.S. over the last few years,” Stancer says. “It appears though, that the walls may be starting to close in on POTUS and that revelations may soon come to light – so I thought now would be a good time to bring out this song.”
Although Stancer admits that he wanted “Not Far From The Truth” to reflect the sinister atmosphere fostered by the Trump administration, he adds his overall intention was to write a hopeful song to inspire people to continue demanding the truth from politicians and to support the media who report on them.

Happy release day to Belle Plaine’s Malice, Mercy, Grief and Wrath! Here’s what the critics are saying:
“If this album were a house, it would loom large, stand Gothic and you would find its heart in a foyer that holds a grand piano.” Exclaim!
“Belle crochets a wonderful mix of old country, classic western, alternative rock, and jazz swing to create a beautiful blanket of music that is an artistic keepsake.” No Depression
“Her new album [is] full of questioning, of the past, present and the future, exploring autobiographically-related themes of grief and loss though songs steeped in classic country influences.” Folking.com
“One of the most wonderful things I’ve heard this year.” Mike Bell, The YYScene
“Malice, Mercy, Grief and Wrath shines with textures of classic country music, including some of the hip jazz changes that were commonplace with mid-60s Nashville-produced records, while keeping an eye toward the future sonically, with parts that might not seem out of place on a Wilco album.” BeatRoute

Renowned Toronto singer/songwriter Kyp Harness will release his 14th album — simply self-titled — on Oct. 19, and you can get an early listen to the track “Talking To Myself” exclusively now at No Depression by clicking the logo below!
Kyp Harness is another brilliant collection of nine timely observations of our fraying society, rendered with all the wit, wisdom and just the right amount of folk-rocking flair that Harness’ die-hard fans have come to expect. The album’s crackling energy is the result of the tracks being laid down during a single all-day session at Toronto’s Revolution Recording, with Joao Carvalho capturing the chemistry generated by Harness, the renowned pianist Tania Gill, bassist Mike Smith and drummer Sean Lancaric.
