The core of Canadian Music Week this year and many talented musicians, our SoundCloud Local feature is looking at Toronto, Canada, today!
Spending 900 hours in Cubase creating pop rock noise, the Toronto-based band, Loveseat, is ready to show the world what they got. Just like any other band starting out, their dreams are to play large stadiums and play Scrabble with Bono. Make sure to follow them on the ‘Cloud for their updates.
