Hey all! We have a couple of different things to talk about today.

Here we go:

On August 21st we attended the Canadian National Exhibition (the CNE) to watch a great show put on by Jackie Valentine and Marianas Trench. Despite the crazy weather, the show was great! Everyone got wet but all of that didn’t matter once the music began.

The day after, we interviewed Matt Webb, Marianas Trench guitarist who has recently started a solo project as well. We discussed his debut solo EP “Coda and Jacket”, the upcoming album with Marianas Trench (we tried to get him to spill some secrets ) and lots more! He even answered some fan questions sent in by you guys! Subscribe to our Youtube channel to be first to watch the interview:

Matt gave us an autographed copy of his EP Coda and Jacket as a prize for our next contest! Here’s what you’ve got to do:

1) Make a poster promoting Matt’s EP. You can use paint, crayons, pencils, pastels, make a collage, make digital artwork, or any other art supplies you can think of. Be as creative as you want!

2) Take a photo of your poster and email it to Please remember to include your name and address.

We will post the photos on our Facebook page in an album called “Matt Webb Contest”. Get your friends and family to vote for your poster by hitting the “like” button. The poster that receives the most likes wins.

You have until Sunday September 11th at 12pm EST to send us your poster. All posters will then go up on Facebook for a week of voting. Voting ends Sunday September 18th at 6pm EST. That is when the winner will be announced. There can only be one entry per person.

Good luck everyone! 

And for those of you wondering, the interview with Matt Webb will be up soon! Coming this next week though, is the interview with Courage My Love. We interviewed them on August 5th before their show in Ottawa.

It was a fun night! We talked about their upcoming EP (and music video), Gene Simmons, crazy concert experiences and working with siblings to name a few things. We look forward to sharing that interview with you shortly

Another thing Canadas Talent has done this summer is visit the set of Keek’s very first music video! It was on July 31st. We can’t tell you too much about it just yet… but here’s some photos…

The music video will be out on September 6th. We’re excited to see it!
