If you recognize the name, Jennel was on the X Factor USA as a top 12 contestant. “Hate To Love You” is her debut single and it has a very Paramore vibe. She is working on her first original album with ZK Productions.

This duo from Hamilton, Ont. released their new album Let The Storm Come and released their latest music video for “Your Hero.”

Gold Complex ft. Nic Armour – “Tread On Me”
This soul/pop group from Toronto (Woo!) have released their first single “Tread On Me” and are allowing fans to download it for free. If you like what you hear, download the single!
