EVENT: Northern Power Summit (Saturday, August 19th)

rez | Events | Friday, August 18th, 2017


The Northern Power Summit returns tomorrow at The Drake Hotel. Description says it all. Shouts to the homie D.O.!

On Saturday, August 19, the Drake Hotel in Toronto, Canada will be the site of the second annual “Northern Power Summit”, a one-day Urban Music conference dedicated to providing education and tools, as well as access to individuals to help Canadian artists and industry professionals develop their careers internationally.

Presented by Northstarr Entertainment and Letting Artists Make Art (LAMA), the follow-up to the inaugural 2016 event will feature panels and “ted”-style talks from a variety of Canadian and international industry professionals.

“Last year’s event had over 100 attendees ranging from emerging and established artists to current tastemakers and long-time industry professionals”, says Duane “D.O.” Gibson, Founder and President of Northstarr Entertainment. “As with many first-time events, we weren’t sure what to expect, but when we asked people for feedback afterwards, the overwhelming response was that people were very grateful to have an event like ours because of a lack of educational events in the Urban industry. We’re really excited to present another valuable day of programming for our attendees this year.”

Northern Power Summit also includes a showcase component and dedicated networking time in addition to the educational elements, and this year’s edition will feature an evening social with entertainment on the historic Drake Hotel stage.

Partnering with leading international conference New Skool Rules, attending artists will have a chance to audition for a chance to perform at New Skool Rules in Rotterdam, Netherlands in May 2018.

Early bird registration ($20) and all other information for Northern Power Summit can be found at www.nps17.com

Conference programming will run from noon until 6 p.m., with an evening event to

EVENT: Merna | Live @ The Drake Underground | Wednesday July 12th

Merna Live

Merna does her thing live for the city, tomorrow (Wednesday) … reach!!!

Off the heals of her most recently released album, sans, Merna and her band will be performing live in concert at The Drake Underground.

Special guest Desiire
Music by Dj L’oqenz


Palestinian-born, Toronto-based multi disciplinary artist, Merna (formerly known as Ayah) blissfully spreads her wings in a space and time where evolution is imminent. After creating magical soundscapes with the likes of DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jill Scott) and James Poyser (The Roots), releasing her dynamic album The Calling featuring stellar production by Makai Black and executive producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest, Lucy Pearl), she brazenly forays into the world of art, production, and composition with her new self-produced offering, sans.

Impressively melding minimalistic sound design, striking chords, classic songwriting, and melodic elements of pop, soul, and classical, evolution never sounded so sweet. sans will be sure to poise Merna as a producer/writer to reckon with.
Most recently, Merna introduced audiences to the sans concept of quiet presence in order to make space for creation, the sans experience, via an interactive installation and live shows.

Listen to sans:
