The Canadian Music Café, presented by the Canadian Music Publishers Association (CMPA) and the Canadian Independent Music Association (CIMA), announced an impressive lineup of artists who will take the stage in its 9th annual showcase. This year, the Café has partnered with the City of Toronto’s xoTO Filmmakers Lounge to create deeper connections between the city’s music and film sectors. The Café will take place September 11-12 at the xoTO Filmmakers Lounge during the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
Guests of the Café can look forward to sets from six time Juno Award-winning R&B artist Keshia Chanté, rip-roaring rock duo The Pack A.D., Toronto indie rock darlings Fast Romantics, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Geoffroy, and ground-breaking Latina pop artist Lido Pimienta, among others.
The Canadian Music Café brings together fresh Canadian talent and industry professionals for potential song placements in TV, film, advertising and video games. This year, the Café received a record number of submissions from across the country and selected 10 Canadian artists to perform to a room of music supervisors, producers and filmmakers from all over the world. This year’s lineup of artists will join Café alumni, including Hannah Georgas, Rose Cousins, Doomsquad, City and Colour, Dear Rouge, Martha Wainwright, Scott Helman, Donovan Wood and Arkells, whose music has been placed in dozens of domestic and international film and TV productions.
