At a time when countless concerts and performances have been cancelled across the country, Sonic Boom, Canada’s beloved record store has created an online venue for Canadian artists to launch their Spring record releases.
“The store has always acted as a conduit between the artists and the community,” says owner Jeff Barber. “During this period of social distancing we want to continue to support the music community and connect with our customers.”
I had the pleasure of speaking with Jeff about the store, their love of supporting local artists, and this exciting new series.
In the coming weeks, fans who follow Sonic Boom can enjoy live performances with outstanding Canadian talent such as experimental ambient jazz artist Joseph Shabason, Canadian Ethiopian singer Witch Prophet, with many more to be announced.
Future dates and times for their on-going virtual concerts can be accessed at SonicBoomMusic.com.
To support Sonic Boom, you can purchase ready inventory at the link above.
Jeff is also encouraging us all to join as community, and donate to the Daily Bread Food Bank. A most excellent suggestion!
