I introduce to you one of Toronto’s finest up and coming artists, Scott Helman. His debut EP Augusta came out last week and I have no doubt it’ll be a hit.
I was first introduced to Helman less than a year ago at a small performance he had at the Revival Bar in downtown Toronto. He was one of those artists where you say, “Where the hell has he been hiding this whole time?”
Helman’s song “Cry Cry Cry” pulled me in. It’s been humming in my head since I first heard it. Take a listen to his acoustic version of “Cry Cry Cry.” Just goes to show that he’s just as good live as he is in his EP.
Helman’s single from his EP is “Bungalow.” Take a listen! It’s the perfect tune for a nice summer drive. I know, winter is coming… but we can still pretend that it’s summer with the warm heater in the car right?
He’s definitely got that indie feel, but has a hint of R&B sound in a few of his tunes. It’s the perfect mix for his unique and soulful voice.
Along with the release of his EP, Helman announced new dates with the Cardinals for December!
Dec.6 // Guelph – Van Gogh’s Ear
Dec. 11 // Oshowa – The Musthache Club
Dec. 12 // Toronto – Smiling Buddha
Dec. 13 // St. Catherines – Detour Music Hall
