FEATURE EDITORIAL REVIEW

MATT WEBB  & BAND LIVE @ ADELAIDE HALL MARCH 7TH 2014

By: Fridae Mattas

A few weeks ago I published Matt Webb’s record review on his sophomore EP “Right Direction”. On Friday, March 7th 2014 I migrated to Adelaide Hall downtown Toronto to check him out live. I have never actually paid attention during a Marianas Trench set not my cup of tea. So, I went to this gig not knowing what to expect, except that he would be performing tunes off of his latest album. The venue itself I have never been to or so I thought, but once inside I had to go upstairs and then down the hall and back downstairs to reach the stage area. The venue then reminded me of this club “LimeLight” I went to before I was legal to even go clubbing. Once downstairs I saw that the stage area did not have a media pit and was already surrounded with fans, I was not about to try reaching the front. A fan I was talking to told me a interesting little fact about the venue, there are two Men’s restrooms downstairs but only one Female washroom all the way up a flight of stairs…Not exactly the most logical or convenient layout if you expect female patrons to regularly visit the venue.MATT WEBB  & BAND LIVE @ ADELAIDE HALL MARCH 7TH 2014MATT WEBB & BAND (THE QUKES) LIVE @ ADELAIDE HALL MARCH 7TH 2014Somehow I forgot that Webb is in a hugely popular Canadian band with mostly female fans…I was reminded, well more along the lines of startled when the screams erupted, I regretted forgetting my ear plugs so much. For all of you MT fans according to the bands guitar man Webb, Marianas Trench are working hard on a new record. I was surprised to see he had a band backing him up, thought it was going to be an acoustic set for some reason. I am assuming they have named themselves “The Qukes”, I saw a banner hanging with that moniker and a sliced cucumber. Don’t remember how many tracks were played but I did hear all of the tunes from the record, the band played well, they were getting into the tunes feeding off of the crowds energy.MATT WEBB BAND DRUMS (THE QUKES) LIVE @ ADELAIDE HALL MARCH 7THMATT WEBB BAND (THE QUKES) LIVE @ ADELAIDE HALL MARCH 7TH 2014MATT WEBB  & KEVIN JAMES MAHER (KEVVY MENTAL - FAKE SHARK- REALAlthough I did not get a chance to catch the openersone of them, “Kevin Maher, aka Kevvy Mental”  vox from the band “Fake Shark – Real Zombie” did make a guest appearance for one of the tunes. Maher was not the only guest to sing with Webb, he had a contest winner join him on stage. Her name escapes me but I do recall Webb reassuring the crowd she was qualified to singMATT WEBB LIVE @ ADELAIDE HALL MARCH 7TH 2014 because of her training at the Royal Conservatory of Music. The guests did well from what I could hear over the fans. Most of the fans I encountered were chill and at one point I did try to get a little closer, my mistake…A few colourful words were unleashed by a few teenies decked out in stilettos, booby shirts and muff wraps (mini skirts) thinking they were gonna get lucky with Webb that night…So funny are groupies. MATT WEBB  & CONTEST WINNNER FAN LIVE @ ADELAIDE HALL MARCH 7THMATT WEBB  & CONTEST WINNNER FAN LIVE @ ADELAIDE HALL MARCH 7THMATT WEBB LIVE @ ADELAIDE HALL MARCH 7TH 2014For a guitar player Matt Webb held his own on stage, he looked comfortable enough, interacted with the fans but did not talk too much. And, although I heard a few pitchy vocals because breathing work is needed, it was decent enough. Much worse these ears have heard and have come to the conclusion everyone is better than Scott Stapp live, even Chad Kroeger. Trying to get a shot of the drummer was a challenge, one of the band Larries was always in the way. Upstairs I went for some aerial shots, even with the angle change I still couldn’t get decent shots of the drummer, so I just migrated back down to try again. Most of the crowd cleared out once he thanked everyone and the lights dimmed but a lot of girls were not budging. The remaining crowd began chanting “Encore” until Webb and friends popped back on stage.MATT WEBB BAND LIVE @ ADELAIDE HALL MARCH 7TH 2014Toronto was the first date of the tour across Canada, if you want to take your child or younger sibling to hear some live music and can handle screaming females, go see Matt Webb and The Qukes rock out. COPYRIGHT © 2014 FRIDAE MATTAS.

THE TREWS TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM APRIL 22ND 2014!

AWARD-WINNING CANADIAN ROCK BAND THE TREWS TO RELEASE
SELF-TITLED ALBUM APRIL 22

Toronto, ON – Since the release of their highly celebrated debut House of Ill Fame (2003), The Trews have gained a reputation as one of Canada’s most electrifying live Rock bands. Ten years, five studio albums and thousands of gigs in, the East Coast-bred, Ontario-based rockers are still going strong and are as willing as ever to break the mold, as their 2014 self-titled album, scheduled for release on April 22, 2014, proves without a doubt.
 
“This album is our thank you letter to our fans,” says Colin MacDonald, lead vocals and guitar. “We felt that we owed them a great record because without them we wouldn’t be able to do what we love to do, make music. We worked really hard on this new collection of songs and we are so proud of what we’ve built.”
 
The Trews blazing lead single “What’s Fair Is Fair” hit the ground running at radio and nabbed the #1 Most Added song at Canadian Active Rock radio (Mediabase) the week of February 24. The single was released via iTunes.ca on March 4 and the accompanying lyric video is currently on YouTube.com. To celebrate the upcoming release, The Trews will host an official launch party at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto on April 26, 2014. Tickets to the show are available via Ticketmaster.ca.
 
Produced by Gavin Brown (Metric, Billy Talent, The Tragically Hip) and guitarist John-Angus MacDonald (The Trews, The Glorious Sons), The Trews (Home Music / eOne Music Canada), not only boasts a guest spot by Canadian songstress, Serena Ryder, but contributions from die-hard Trews fans on some tracks; just one of the perks available to fans who contributed to The Trews’ hugely successful PledgeMusic campaign. In addition to allowing loyal supporters unparalleled access to the band during the recording process and partially funding the record, the PledgeMusic campaign, which concludes on April 22, is an effort by The Trews to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Canada in honour of a friend who passed away from CF last year.
 
The blend of upbeat rockers and raw ballads on The Trews displays the foursome’s growth as songwriters and performers as never before, and nowhere more so than on “In the Morning” featuring Serena Ryder, and “65 Roses,” a song inspired by their close friend’s struggle with CF. The Trews will donate 5% of any additional funds raised during their campaign to Cystic Fibrosis Canada (Peel & District Chapter). To learn more about the PledgeMusic Campaign visit, http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/thetrews.
 
The Trews have had 13 Top 10 singles on Rock radio, hitting #1 with “Not Ready to Go,” (the Most Played song of 2004 on Rock Radio) and “Yearning” from their 2005 sophomore album, Den Of Thieves. With two Gold Certified albums to their credit, they have cemented themselves as one of Canada’s most distinguished Canadian Rock bands. The band has won multiple East Coast Music Awards, the 2009 Annual Independent Music Award in the US for Best Rock/Metal Song, received numerous JUNO Award nominations and played well over 1,000 shows worldwide, both on their own and supporting legendary acts including The Rolling Stones, KISS, Robert Plant, Guns ‘n Roses, Kid Rock and Bruce Springsteen.

 FRIDAE TV’S INTERVIEW WITH

JAMES BLACK

By: Fridae Mattas

I had a few minutes with James prior to his set at the Rivoli for Canadian Music Week Fest. Was going to add the review in with all the Canadian Music Week coverage but decided to feature James instead. I’m really vibing his music it’s different, catchy and its real. Black has a rich solid tone in his vocals and they are a lot more versatile than I expected, definitely coming out of his shell. I cannot wait to hear the record with full production when it’s released. For those who don’t know who James Black is…Guitarist with the band Finger Eleven for over two decades, he has a side band with fellow Finger Eleven compadre Rick Jackett called “Blackie Jackett Jr.” and will be releasing his solo record this summer.

TIM CHAISSON ANNOUNCES TOUR AND ALBUM!

TIM CHAISSON ANNOUNCES TOUR DATES IN SUPPORT OF NEW LP ‘THE OTHER SIDE’, TO BE RELEASED SEPTEMBER 25, 2012 VIA BUMSTEAD 

Photography By: Jess Baumung East coast singer-songwriter Tim Chaisson is set to release his fifth studio album nationally on September 25, 2012 via Bumstead (The Trews, Two Hours Traffic Poor Young Things) and is also pleased to announce Canadian tour dates including stops in Toronto, Montreal, Halifax, and Charlottetown in support of the new release. 

Recorded at Woodshed Studio under the guidance of producer Colin Linden (Bruce Cockburn, Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, Lucinda Williams), The Other Side blends Maritime roots and folk music with a lush yet minimal arrangement. As with previous releases, Chaisson’s golden-toned voice and signature guitar are at the forefront, embracing a warm transparency that fans and critics have come to love. New tracks including the standout “Beat This Heart” featuring songstress Serena Ryder are bound to become favourites, along with “Bail You Out” which Chaisson recorded for Southern Souls along with “Blast Your Way Out” earlier this summer. 
It’s no surprise coming from a musically influenced family that Chaisson set his sights on solo artistry at a young age. With the 2009 release of Broken Hearted Beat, Tim Chaisson’s fourth studio album, the multi-instrument became a force on the national music scene garnering attention including a #1 spot on the MuchMoreMusic Countdown, “Touring Artist of the Year” by Music PEI, and solo tours of Australia. With recent festival dates under his belt including Hamilton’s Festival of Friends and the inaugural Boots and Hearts Music Festival, Tim Chaisson has already been treating audiences to new material, hinting at what The Other Side promises. Between the new release and national tour dates, it’s evident that Tim Chaisson is an artist to watch in 2012. Download link and tour dates below.
