Genre: Alternative Rock
Release Date: October 28, 2014
Milo McMahon is an alternative rock singer-songwriter from Montreal, Quebec. He released his second release, an EP, on October 28, 2014. Entitled “Gone Too Long,” the release includes three songs.
Upon listening to the album, I was immediately drawn in by McMahon’s vocals. The songs themselves were infectious, well-orchestrated, and easy to find yourself singing along to once knowing the lyrics. It is difficult to narrow down a particular favourite for the album for me. I enjoyed how each song had their own vibe to them. The song “Buyin’ a Truck,” however, was the track I continued to have on repeat.
I highly recommend checking out “Gone Too Long” by Milo McMahon. It’s a solid release and great introduction to the artist if you have yet to listen to him.

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.
