Montreal's Formula-Breaking Collective Release Their Debut, Slave To The Game, on January 26th

Creating Constant Fan Connection - Michael Angelo Releases EP

"In The Light Of The Moon"

Michael-Angelo, Montreal’s eclectic pop-rocker, gets set to release his second album, “The Life: a Song Project,” in an innovative way. January 27th will see the release of a four track EP, called "In The Light of The Moon" the first part of the new album, which will be followed by a second EP and finally, the release of the entire album later this year. The innovative idea stems from the artist’s goal of sharing his music with his fans as soon as it is produced.

"Releasing In the Light of the Moon allows my fans to hear my future album as I'm producing it, creating a constant connection and allowing me to keep playing shows and do a little bit of everything instead of the long cycle of compose, record, promote, sell, tour, etc..." says Michael Angelo. "I'm basically taking advantage of technology and sharing my songs right away instead of waiting a whole year for the album to be complete and be heard."

Geoff Lloyd, former band member of Matthew Good passes away

Geoff Lloyd

Canadian rocker Matthew Good has paid tribute to his former bandmate Geoff Lloyd, who died at the weekend, in late January. The bassist, who founded the Matthew Good Band with the star in the 1990s, was found dead at the end of January. The cause of death has not yet been publicly confirmed.

And Good admits he's still in a "state of shock" after learning of the tragedy. In a post on his official website, he writes, "I really don't know what to say right now. Having just found out that Geoff has passed I'm still in a state of shock. Geoff was one of the founding members of the Matthew Good Band, and, as far as I'm concerned, it was never quite the same without him."

"I remember a lot of things when I think of Geoff. Like me, he suffered from extreme mood swings and depression, something that he struggled with throughout his life. But, to be honest, most of the time I just remember how funny and utterly selfless he was."

Funeral for singer Kate McGarrigle to be held in Montreal today.

Singer Kate McGarrigle's funeral will be held today at the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal.

The 63-year-old musician died at her Montreal home on Jan. 18 after a battle with cancer. McGarrigle's brother-in-law, Dane Lanken, earlier told The Canadian Press he expects singer Emmylou Harris to attend the service.

McGarrigle and her sister Anna became known as the McGarrigle Sisters and began their careers performing at Montreal coffeehouses in the 1960s with a group called the Mountain City Four.

They were perhaps best-known to Canadians for their distinctive rendition of Wade Hemsworth's "The Log Driver's Waltz," which was featured in a 1979 animated short done by the National Film Board.

Kate McGarrigle was invested with the Order of Canada in 1994, while she and Anna received the Governor General's Performing Arts Award in 2004.
