To one of the Maritime provinces of Canada, we’re stopping by a smaller city today for SoundCloud Local. This week, we’re focusing on Halifax, Canada, and checking out what they have in store for us!
Folk singer-songwriter Christina Martin has been on an extensive musical journey for nearly a decade now. Not only did she record her debut album in Austin, Texas, but she’s also opened for Wilco in the past! She’s a frequent performer in the café/bar circuit in Halifax. Don’t forget to follow her on the ‘Cloud!
Long Long Long
Long Long Long is an experimental guitar surf pop band from Halifax! A listen to them will make you imagine you’re on the beaches of California (or wherever you prefer to surf). They’ve had five releases in total and you can hear some highlights from each one below!
Roots & Folk pop singer-songwriter, Chad Hatcher, likes to blend elements of Blues, R&B, Soul, & Reggae with some Hip Hop influence. His music has the ability to appeal to every demographic. To hear what this Halifax-based singer is all about, click the link or listen to the grey player.
Looking for a range of genres? Here are some abstract field recordings from SoundCloud user, Natasha Duchene. She also has some piano-based jazzy tracks with vocals. From sound art to emotional piano melodies, Natasha’s SoundCloud page is a great listen no matter what you’re feeling.
It’s about time we had some metal, right? Amir doesn’t just stick to one genre though, he also makes hip hop and electronic music as well. Fun fact: he has time-lapse footage of contrails (or chemtrails, whichever you prefer), which is very cool — you can watch it here!
