Genre: Alternative Rock
Hailing from Toronto, Ontario comes alternative rock artist Rory Taillon. Under Rory Taillon and the Old Souls, Taillon has released three albums to date. The first entitled “Closure” was released in January 2012. The second, “It’s Not Black and White” was released in September 2013. Taillon released his third EP entitled “Strings” via Bandcamp on April 14, 2015.
The Strings EP contains two tracks. Both tracks bear similarity to the artist’s previous releases as they are acoustic. However, both still offer the listener variation between the songs on the previous releases.
While listening to the EP, I really enjoyed the combination of instrumentals, vocals, and lyrics for both tracks. The album is solid introduction to the artist if you have yet to listen to him. If enjoying the Strings EP, I would definitely recommend checking out his albums “Closure” and “It’s Not Black and White.”

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.
