The Wooden Sky is an alternative rock group hailing from Toronto, Ontario. On September 2, 2014, the band released their fourth record entitled “Let’s Be Ready” via Chelsea Records. It is available digitally on Itunes, on CD, and LP. The band will be heading out on tour across the country throughout September and October.
Opening up “Let’s Be Ready” is the track “Saturday Night.” One of my favourite songs on the record, “Saturday Night” is one of the most upbeat songs. I found myself dancing to and repeating it the most. The second song that really stood out for me was “Maybe It’s No Secret” for the instrumentals of the track.
Overall, I enjoyed listening to “Let’s Be Ready.” The instrumentals, vocals, and lyrics tie in together well. I ended up having to go back through the band’s discography to get my hands on more songs. I recommend checking out the album. If you want to gain a ‘taste’ prior to purchasing check out “Saturday Night” and “Kansas City” first.

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.
