Toronto, ON-based alt-pop singer-songwriter, QUIETLOVE aka. Brendan DiStefano, has released his brand new single, “No Feelings”.
“No Feelings” is a modern-day summer anthem entirely written and produced by QUIETLOVE, mixed by Jack Emblem, and mastered by multi-platinum engineer, Dan Weston.
“I wrote this song about the perpetual inner struggle between head and heart”, said Brendan. “At some point, you’ve gotta decide what’s best for you, even if it hurts like hell”.

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hey, Canadian Beats readers! My name is QUIETLOVE, a Toronto-based alt-pop producer & songwriter. Lovely to e-meet you all!
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I usually write a song, demo it. Vibe with it for a couple of days, and slowly piece together the final production & arrangement from there. Once it’s in a place I’m comfortable with, I’ll go ahead and record the final vocals, and then it’s off to mixing.
How have you been keeping creative during the Pandemic?
To be honest, I was pretty hard on myself at the very start to make something of myself during isolation, but I’ve since adapted to just taking it a day at a time. Finding a balance between work and self-care is much more healthy than the ‘no days off’ mentality. I’ve actually been pretty productive during the pandemic, both with self-reflection and my music. Can’t wait to show you all what I’ve been up to!
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
I’d say my latest single is a pretty accurate representation of myself as an artist, so I’d hope they listen to ‘No Feelings’. Being a new solo artist, I’ve only got two released songs, and of the two, it’s definitely the more light-hearted, bubbly, and fun. Give it a spin and let me know what you think!
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
I’ve been really into Verzache lately, he’s also a Toronto-based emerging artist/producer. He released an album at the start of the pandemic I haven’t been able to put down – definitely recommend it.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
