Toronto-based artist Scott Goodwin has ventured into innumerable genres on his latest release, Valentine. Elements of jazz, indie-rock, rap, and autotune-tinged pop are all evident on the LP, showing that Goodwin’s songwriting abilities know no bounds.
“The lack of genre confines allow for new fusions to take shape with every song. The result is a brooding, lovelorn collection of songs that put up a magnifying glass to the mind of the young upstart. He is equally deft at capturing both the hopefulness of new love, and the whiskey glass-on-the-dash abandon of love lost,” says Auteur Research of the experimental musician.

Hey! I’m Allen Steinberg and I’m currently based in Belleville, Ontario. I’m a Journalism & Communications student doing my four-week placement with Canadian Beats because I love writing and I love music. Outlets like Canadian Beats are important because they care about showing off smaller / newer artists who may otherwise not get much exposure. I think it really keeps them going. I also sing and play guitar in my band Arm’s Length. Happy to be here!
