Care to introduce yourself to our readers?

My name is Harley Card, I’m a guitarist, composer, and singer-songwriter from Toronto. I perform quite a bit around town in a variety of settings, including presenting my own original music. I’ve also toured in Canada a fair bit, as a solo artist, with my jazz quintet, and with the band Hobson’s Choice.

Tell us a bit about your most recent release.

“Two Tomorrows” is a single release that is going to be a part of an EP that is in the works. I wanted to get something out to all the music channels in the meantime. The band went for a different sound and approach than we have so far and we’re excited about the result. I sing and play the song on guitar and It features some great friends and musicians; vocalist Alex Samaras, bassist Dan Fortin, drummer Jeff Luciani, and pianist Matt Newton. As far as the song itself goes, I’d say overall it’s a song about hope.

When it comes to the global pandemic, how are you keeping yourself out in the public eye while not being able to perform?

Well 2020 sure was a write-off in terms of performing for everybody, but you know 2021 wasn’t bad, all told. By the middle of the summer things got pretty busy and stayed that way well into the fall. I was also fortunate to be in the position of being able to release a record in the summer of 2020. My album ‘Unconfined Invisible’ was in the mixing stage right as the pandemic hit. It got a really good response despite my not being able to be out performing to promote it. People have been very supportive during these times.

Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so if you were able to work with ONE fellow Canadian artist, alive or dead, who would you choose?

You know it’s gonna sound corny but I already get to work with my favourite musicians; all my friends! I’m a lucky guy.

What’s your goal for 2022?

To stay active making music, and to finish the Two Tomorrows EP!
