Liam Corcoran is a name you may be familiar with if you were a part of the Prince Edward Island Music scene in the last few years. He was the lead singer of Two Hours Traffic until they decided it was best to part ways a couple of years ago. It was sad to see them go but now Corcoran is venturing off on his own with his solo project. I had the opportunity to see him live when he opened for Tim Chaisson in Charlottetown this past May and was absolutely blown away. His solo debut ‘ROM-DROM’ has been announced to be released on August 28th. If you can’t wait until then, and no one would blame you, you can stream the first single off of the release, “Let It Be Now” above. Keep an eye on Canadian Beats leading up to the release for a review of an album I promise you won’t be able to get enough of.
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
