Watch Official Video for “Distance”

During adolescence, our band’s songwriters both experienced being uprooted from their home countries, moving from Argentina and Portugal to Canada. We still feel and carry the emotional weight of distance as we are separated by oceans, borders, and at times political differences.

Singer Paul Loren Delivers Modern Music with a Retro Vibe

From his Elvis-era instrumentation to his Billy Joel-esque ear for melody and pathos, singer Paul Loren’s upcoming songs feel topical and new, even as they evoke a throwback vibe to the Rat Pack era, and perhaps even a nod to our ‘better angels’.

Loren is a youthful old-school entertainer with a twinkle in his eye – it’d be easy to imagine him being introduced by Dick Clark or Johnny Carson. But the era he has a musical affinity for does not mean he’s singing about the past…and tracking to analog does not make him a nostalgia act. On the contrary. Loren’s upcoming ‘Betwixt’ draws inspiration from his recent months of heartbreak, anxiety and anger – emotions many of us have experienced during these turbulent times.

Carley Arrowood sings of an idyllic night in the country in “My Kind of Nightlife”

Following the demonstration of her fiddle virtuosity on the instrumental “Ducks On The Millpond,” Mountain Home Music Company’s Carley Arrowood returns to form with a strong vocal performance that builds on the success of last year’s “Goin’ Home Comin’ On” by offering a different angle on a similar theme.

Written by producer-bassist Jon Weisberger and Music Row hitmaker Jenn Schott, “My Kind Of Nightlife” gently contrasts crowded downtown streets and “cafes and honky tonks full of sound and light” with the glow of lightning bugs “dancing in the air” and “the call of the nightbirds.” “That’s my kind of nightlife,” Arrowood sings with a self-assurance born of her own experience and preferences, while the song’s relaxed tempo, lush harmonies and subtle instrumental backing all combine to transport the listener to the chorus’s front porch swing and an idyllic night in the country.

Sam Louis Drops New Single “Driftin'”

Hypnotic in sound and stereo, Sam Louis is digital adrenaline. Hanging in the balance of alt pop and R&B, he continuously curates feelings of loss and regret while still inducing euphoria. Based out of Toronto, Louis looks to provide more than just a stream or casual listening experience, but medicine for those who need it.

New single, “Driftin’,” is about feeling lost and alone surrounded by so much beauty and wonder that you can’t reach/access. Being stuck in a bigger metropolis like Toronto during the COVID-19 pandemic brought upon the darker emotions of “Driftin’.” Having the city lights in view while feeling like you’re helplessly floating farther away from it, created this weird disconnect, one that Louis compared to drifting through space-time.
