Now in its 35th year, Canadian Music Week is recognized as one of the premier entertainment events in North America. CMW is a combination of informative, intensive conferences, a cutting-edge trade exhibition, award shows, a film festival and a massive new music festival. Runs from April 18-23, 2017 in Toronto Ontario.
Canadian Music Week announces the next wave of artists for the 2017 edition of the festival. Newly added performers include double platinum rock icon MELISSA ETHERIDGE, Toronto’s indie-rock mainstays HOLLERADO, along with the city’s critically acclaimed rising stars CHARLOTTE DAY WILSON, WEAVES and GREYS, Montreal’s electronic-punk outfit DUCHESS SAYS, and the new psychedelic-jazz collaboration from composer / producer Toro Y Moi, CHAZ BUNDICK MEETS THE MATTSON 2. The SiriusXM House will land at The Great Hall, packed with two nights of music including a special headlining set on Saturday with Canadian Country act HIGH VALLEY.

I shoot live music performances and concerts. I love the excitement of entering a venue, knowing that I’ll be photographing a concert and enjoying the energy of the crowd. There’s nothing like being in a venue and looking at the expressions on the faces of people who are all transfixed by the talent onstage. I shoot about 120 shows each year, averaging 2 bands per show, as well as several all-day and weekend festivals in and around Southern Ontario. From the large venues to very small ones, bright lights or barely lit stages, I hope that my photos capture the enjoyment the artists have in doing what they love to do.
