Liner Notes – New Single/Video from Flight 97

Barrie Concerts This Week


Flight 97 released the first single off their upcoming EP this week.

Cliff Diving feat. Jenn Fiorentino hit YouTube and Facebook yesterday.

Shot by Joel Friendorf, the video is in advance of their EP “Calling in the Calvary” (produced by Logan Schmidt)

The EP will be released on all Streaming and downloading platforms on MARCH 14th 2020, but you
can pre-order the album on Spotify.

Flight 97 plays the Foxx next Saturday to celebrate the release of the album. You can also check out their stuff on the Barrie Set List.


Liner Notes: New Tunes From 30 Going on 13


30 Going on 13 have been busy for the last 6 months.

October saw the release of their album The Best 3p We’ve Ever Made, followed by monthly gigs in around Barrie and more studio time. Plus some bad skittle/beer experiences.

This weekend they return to the Foxx lounge to debut their new single Dear Kimberly. (It actually had a early preview on 89.1 Max FM’s Punk show, hosted by local punk/rock aficionado Amanda Dyke.)

Dear Kimberly hits all the usual streams Friday. And their show at the Foxx is only $5/door to hear it live.

Liner Notes: The Noolands Too Close Debuts



After some well crafted teasing, Barrie’s favourite Gypsy folk rock sons have delivered their new single (and video) Too Close.

Debuting on the streams, the song is another Barrie-centric collaboration with a boat load of local talents. Recorded and mixed at Mix11 Studios by Daryl Sarnat, with help on the mastering side from Noah Mintz.

And lovers of mini-putt will recognize the indoor course on Commerce Park road as the backdrop for the video (shot by Barrie based video crew Sproutwise)


Here’s what the Noolands had to say about this latest release…

“This song has been a major full circle moment for our band. It’s taken us five years to really figure out our flow and it feels as if something important has clicked recently. See, we’re always being wound up by the world around us and then we have to come together so we can write music. There’s so much noise out there in our lives , we don’t need to put anymore pressure on each-other. You can lose sight of all the good things happening around us.
The support we have from everyone and the reflection we’ve done into the past has really put things into perspective. If we stick together, grow as friends, keep learning new skills and help each other be the best 5 individuals we can in life, then the music and all that will take care of itself. Too Close feels like the end of a big chapter for our band and the future feels like a fresh start. Our writing has only increased and we can’t wait for what 2020 has in store!

Liner Notes: New Music from Madison Mueller & Sophie And The Gentles



It’s going to be an extra special Christmas for fans of Sophie And The Gentles and Madison Mueller.

Both Barrie based artists have new tuneage hitting the streams by the end of this month.

On Friday the new single from Sophie, called Elvis Lips, drops. It’s a follow up to their debut EP Love, which hit the airwaves in February.


The Friday after that, Madison Mueller’s follow up to Exhale will be available.

Titled Too Nice, it comes on the heels of a huge year for Madison, recently winning the Emerging Artist trophy at the Barrie Arts Awards, in addition to international recognition at the Josie awards earlier in 2019.


And on Friday, The Noolands will be channeling their inner Bing Crosby for a live stream Christmas set.
