The Used #NokiaAllAccess Moment

Hung out with Bert McCracken (may I add, on his tour bus!!!) to chat about shenanigans on tour and his ideal playlist. Bert even gave me a list of “Top-3-Things-To-Do” while visiting Australia. Thanks, Bert!

Don’t miss your next chance to see The Used live!

Will you get to interview one direction ??? When they come to Toronto? Imagine!

I can only imagine!!! We’ve done some great #NokiaAllAccess interview moments in the past. Who knows what could happen when August rolls around? *fingers crossed*

The Wanted - Word of Mouth Tour 2014 - Toronto

I think it’s safe to say that this was one emotional concert.

Yes, the boys killed it on stage performing many hit songs. Yes, their choreographed swaying and perfect poses were on point. Yes, Max George looked exquisite (sorry, I had to fit that in there)! But knowing that this may be the last time they take the stage in Toronto… breaks my heart juuuust a tiny bit. 

The show was a great trip down memory lane for any fan of The Wanted. Performing some of their older hits such as Gold Forever and All Time Low, the boys had the crowd bouncing and singing along to every word. Not the mention the dance party that broke out when they performed Chasing the Sun…yeah, I’m guilty of contributing to that.

Their honest engagement with fans throughout the show was, for lack of a better word, amazing. I remember glancing over to the left side of the stage and seeing Nathan snap a selfie with a fans phone. Pan to stage right, there’s Jay having a quick, casual conversation with some of the girls in front row. Their silly antics also had the crowd (and myself!) cracking up - glad to know they haven’t lost their sense of humour over the last four years. 

Ending the show with their summer chart topper and most popular hit worldwide, Glad You Came was the song that had everyone smiling and dancing with arms in the air. This is one of my all-time favourite songs…so you can just imagine what I was doing. I feel extremely lucky to have experienced their last show in Toronto. Here’s to hoping that it isn’t actually their last tour ever but rather, a break!

Lorde - On Tour

Lorde is the real Ella Enchanted; speaking of her voice and fame as if they were mere gifts. I’d say they’re well-earned.

It take pure talent, not coincidence, to land Grammys for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance, a universally-acclaimed debut album, Pure Heroine, and chart domination worldwide. Not to mention at just 17.

When I saw her play Sound Academy in Toronto, she easily held the sold-out crowd of 3,000 in the palms of her swaying hands. Everything stilled when her voice commanded the room. Its depth and darkness held court from the opener “Glory and Gore” to her breakthrough “Royals” and latest hit “Team.” We sang along with her lovely ooos, of course.

Saying Lorde’s mature voice betrays her age sounds too close to the assumption that teens can’t have depth. With lyrics full of thoughtful critiques and observations of the fame game, high school hierarchies, and mainstream media, Lorde grinds that stereotype into dust. Fans of any age can learn from her mesmerizing voice as much as they can escape into it.

Don’t miss your next chance to see Lorde live!
