The 2018 Allan Slaight Juno Master Class Showcase took over the Rivoli in Toronto on Wednesday to give the 2018 winners a chance to show off their talent to a crowd of industry professionals. Ivory Hours was among the top three, alongside Montreal’s Caveboy and Halifax’s Quake Matthews.
Selected by a jury of Juno alumni Lights, Max Kerman (Arkells), Kardinal Offishall, and Gavin Brown, the winners received a week-long mentorship in Toronto ending with their final performance at the Rivoli. The three artists will also get the opportunity to perform at JunoFest, the Juno Gala dinner and the awards show in March.
The London based band performed three high energy songs to the crowded room, receiving lots of cheers and support from the audience. We have all the photos from their short and sweet set!

I’ve been involved in music my whole life and have developed a passion for helping out or working in the industry any way I can. I’m interested in helping talented artists gain the recognition they deserve in this crazy business. I am currently studying Communication Studies at York University in Toronto, and working at a local theatre doing marketing and communications, as well as helping out a local festival called Rock the Coliseum. Indie, alt-rock/pop, and metal are my favourites but I’m open to all music genres! If I’m not at a show, I’m doing yoga, grabbing coffee, or looking for some craft beer.
