Bellemare Records, based in Victoria, BC, has announced that they are releasing the first Bellemare Records Singles Club. It aims to strengthen and form new bonds within the Canadian music scene. It pairs a band from the west with a band from somewhere else in Canada, resulting in two new original songs, and two new covers.
They have paired Victoria’s Hawk and Steel with Toronto’s Snoqualmie. “Fantome Saison”, by Snoqualmie, and “Year After Year” by Hawk and Steel are put together for this release.
Both bands have upcoming shows:
Hawk and Steel:
August 8th – Victoria, BC, HQ
August 15th – Golden, BC, Golden Taps Pub
August 17th – Edmonton, AB, The Wunderbar
August 18th – Kelowna, BC, Fernando’s
August 19th – Vancouver, BC, The Railway
July 30th – Toronto, ON, The Piston

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
