Québec City’s 11-day long Festival d’été de Québec has been in full swing since July 5 and will be wrapping up this weekend. Here’s a list of our top 5 artists to see before the festival closes July 15.
If you haven’t heard Milk & Bone’s latest album Deception Bay then you’re certainly missing out. The album is packed with lush instrumentation and delicate vocals, focusing on music dealing with heartbreak and intimacy. The electro-pop duo craft stunning melodies that wash over the listener, bringing both a sense of melancholy and calm.

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.
