Crash Karma - Rock Musique Deluxe

You may recognize some of these faces. They are four musicians from different bands that have come together for Crash Karma.
Singer Edwin (I Mother Earth), guitarist Mike Turner (Our LadyPeace), drummer Jeff Burrows (TheTea Party) and bassist Amir Epstein (Zygote). 
They formed in 2010, and each share the same musical vision. That bond has created a band of brothers between them.

“When we first got together, I didn’t know the guys,” says bassist and main songwriter Epstein, who set up the musical blind date that launched the band in 2008. “I wasn’t friends with them and they weren’t friends with each other — which I actually thought was kind of strange, being that they were in three of the most successful bands ever in Canada. They had crossed paths when they toured, but they weren’t super-tight. So we weren’t very comfortable in the studio. Everybody was on their best behaviour. If someone made a suggestion someone else didn’t like, there wasn’t much criticism. Nobody wanted to offend.  “Since then, we’ve played together, we’ve recorded together, we’ve toured together. And we’ve become close, a bunch of buddies. We know everything about each other now — all the dark secrets. So it was a lot different in the studio. We were comfortable with one another, we were honest with one another, we were open with one another. And it was way more opinionated — ‘That sucks! Do it again!’ Instead of everybody doing what they want, we did what was best. And we all ended up making a stronger album because of it.”

Album Review:
Honestly hadn't heard of Zygote before this. I have fond memories of seeing Edwin play solo at Gage Park for Festival of Friends and am a huge fan. Love The Tea Party and Our Lady Peace too!  Put them all together and you really have something magical!
Edwin sings beautifully, and sounds great with the melodies chosen for the album. The guitars and drums are skillful and each song has a great beat.
Finally Free and Tomorrow are my favorite tracks.  Finally Free has a really heavy beat that I love, and Tomorrow is laid back and awesome. It really gave me the best feeling while listening to it. Makes for a great summer tune!
I can't wait to hear more from these four and hopefully they'll even visit my city one day soon. Fingers crossed!  :-)

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.
