Century Thief is an indie-folk-rock group from Toronto, Ontario. The band’s line-up consists of Mike Legere, Kathryn Kearns, Omar Shabbar, Adam Reid, Alex Furlot, and Jason Cliffen. To date, the group has released three EP’s – Bury the Hatchet Presents Omar Shabbar, Bury the Hatchet Presents Kathryn Kearns, and Plume. In October 2013, the band released “EP Anthology” containing the tracks from their first three extended plays.
Their first full-length album entitled “Reverie” will be released on September 10, 2015. The album contains thirteen tracks including the single “Pillar.” The date coincides with the Album Release Party at The Piston in Toronto.
Upon listening to Reverie, I was hooked from the opening track “Time Goes.” I found myself listening to the album on repeat in its entirety. After each listen, my favourite tracks changed slightly. As I am writing this, they are currently “Time Goes,” “Oh Beautiful Impermanence,” and “Memo.” The songs are well-written and performed very well. It is an overall strong release, and great introduction to the band.
I would recommend listening to their single “Pillar” to get a taste of the album. If you enjoy it, pick up the full album. It is definitely worth checking out.
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.
