The Blazing Elwoods consists of singer/songwriter Brent Wohlberg from Sudbury, Ontario. Wohlberg has been in bands within the Sudbury area including The Easterdogs. He reached second place in CBC Radio’s “Next Great Canadian Hockey Song” competition alongside Chris Leblanc and Sean Barrette. The Blazing Elwoods released their album “Don’t Sell The Car” on February 14, 2014.

“Don’t Sell The Car” contains twelve tracks and was self-produced and recorded at Artifact Media. Occupying Wohlberg on the album are numerous guest musicians. I enjoyed listening to the album. The tracks are fun to listen to. They are similar in sound to his influences including Stompin’ Tom Connors. My favourite songs on “Don’t Sell The Car” are “Jai poigné un gros poisson”, “Brother”, and “It’s Over Hon.”

If you enjoy Stompin’ Tom Connors, Hank Williams Sr or generally like country music, I
recommend checking out “Don’t Sell The Car” by The Blazing Elwoods.

Rating: 3.5/5

Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
