It’s been an exciting week for Round 1 of CBC Music’ Searchlight contest for Canada’s Best New Artist. We’ve been discovering some great new artists through this contest. It kind of feels like Summer Camp!
Last week, I gave my picks for Searchlight, a list that has been growing ever since. Today, I’ll share with you the favourite Toronto picks from Charles Lynch, also known as Avid Napper, who co-wrote and recorded our Searchlight entry song The Longest Night.
Charles says there are a lot of good songs and good artists, but the ones that sound a bit different really caught his attention. Here’s his list:
- hue – “One With The NIght”
- Flying Cars – “Completely Lost”
- KASHKA – “Grain of Salt”
- The Social – “All Because of You”
- Ark Analog – “Make me a Mirror”
- HIGHs “summer dress”
Meanwhile, don’t forget to keep voting for us every day!
