3. With 9 JUNO trophies, Winnipeg’s Neil Young needs no introduction. The latest album of new material is politically charged The Visitor. Neil is joined by players Promise of the Real. The style on this one is 70s flavoured rock.

1. Classitronic is the name of the game for Marie-Pier. This gifted gal combines electronic lounge music with the soothing vibrations of the cello. Cello Lounge is a beautiful relaxing and invigorating instrumental album, very nicely done.
2. Cinematic arrangements, airy vocals, and downtempo beats, reminding us a little of Delerium, collective Clann serves a fine electronic album in Seelie. It is part of an ambitious multimedia project which combines the music with a number of short movies which is to culminate in a feature film. The album contains the vocal talents of Charlotte Oleena and violinist Chloe Picard.
3. Jenna Nation is back with album You Don’t Know. Simply put, it is one of the finest R&B albums of 2017. Besides being accessible to pop lovers, bursting with choice beats and Jenna’s great vocals, the album is rich in atmosphere making it a winner.
