Sam Weber is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from Victoria, British Columbia. The singer has completed a summer program at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition, he has been included in Guitar Player Magazine making him the youngest artist featured in the magazine. Weber released his first full-length debut album on September 2, 2014 via Cordova Bay Records. The release, Shadows in the Road, contains thirteen tracks including the first single “August.”
Upon listening to Shadows in the Road, I was impressed. Weber’s vocals and lyrics tie in well with the instrumentals nicely. There is a lack of filler tracks. I enjoyed the album in its entirety. The songs standing out the most on Shadows in the Road are “Right-Hearted,” “The Nerves,” and “Love in the Age or Lust.”
I would definitely check out the lead single “August” first to see if you like it first. Otherwise, I would definitely pick up Shadows in the Road on iTunes now!
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.
