Dan Medakovic is a singer-songwriter, producer, engineer, and multi-instrumentalist from Hamilton, Ontario. On November 29, 2014, Medakovic will be releasing Jolley Cut. The track listing includes twelve songs and features the single “The Hardest Part.”
When listening to Jolley Cut, I felt it had a country vibe to it. The included tracks on the record work nicely together. It becomes difficult to not sing-along upon learning the lyrics. It is simply a solid album that I recommend checking out.
I had difficulty choosing songs that stood out on the album for me. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to each song. The tracks I found myself going back to continuously were “Turning of the Wheel,” “Little Things, Big Love,” “Taco Star,” and “Chrome Hearts (Slow Drive Home).
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.
