What: The Bout 2019
When: March 30, 2019
Where: The Hideout, Toronto ON
The Hideout in Toronto was alive with The Bout 2019 Festival. A battle of the bands, so to speak. Saturday night saw artist from all over Ontario and showcased Folk, Rock, Metal, and all the divisions in-between. Not only were we taken on a journey through musical genres, we were also wandering through each artist stories.
Shankia Maria, from Hamilton Ontario, and now residing in Toronto. Maria delivered soulful acoustic melodies, told stories with no subtle uncertainties.
Crowfoot, From Wasaga Beach, Ontario, unleashed the Metal tunes, playing original riffs, and a few covers to set the bar for full throttle energy.
James King & The Midnight Hours, from Toronto, Ontario. This five-piece band is a serving of Retro style classic Rock. Their combined love of Rock music, and Theatre kids at heart, they deliver a soul inspiring, dancing good time.
Zen In Chaos, also from Toronto, Ontario, delivering Hard Rock shapes with a few killer falsetto tones, that grounded The Hideout audience without lack of intensity. This trio is something to see live for sure.
One In The Chamber, another Toronto, Ontario native band. Back at their beloved venue, with a newly released video for their new single, ‘Itchin Back,’ One In The Chamber were once again ready to convey their hard rock punch.

Wandering EMm Photography origins came from a wanderer who saw the world in vibrant colour, unique compositions, and an understanding of the dance between light and dark. With her ’Beastie’ as she affectionately calls her camera, EMm can be found at most events, festival, and of course, is a regular at a concert. EMm has a strong passion for music. Using her camera, EMm can capture that moment in time where melody meets lyric, and exists as memory. Musicians have a tiny window to imprint you with their gift of song, given as thoughts, emotions, and experiences. EMm would like to seize that opportunity, and photograph that moment when it all connects. ‘How far will you wander… creatively?’
