  1. Matt Stern (pop/folk/soul)

    Matt Stern Born and raised in Montreal, Matt Stern gravitated toward music at an early age, crafting tunes that combined thoughtful storytelling with expressive emotion. He became increasingly passionate about his art, and a slew of invitations to perform around the city resulted in record-breaking shows at popular venues such as the Yellow Door, Centre St-Ambroise and Zeke's Gallery. His first EP, Awhile (2005), was the fruit of this creative period. Inspired by subsequent travels and touring in China, Japan and throughout Canada, Matt returned home with fresh material to produce his first full-length album, Songs for the Wandering Spirit (2007). Following the release of this record, Matt took the show on the road once again, bringing his new material to Ontario, Quebec and Japan, with a special appearance on the island of Okinawa. Accepting invitations to play at festivals M Comme Musique (2009) in Châteauroux, France, Festival Folk sur le Canal (2009) and Fête de la Musique (2010) in his hometown of Montreal, coupled with his many international appearances, has garnered Matt a diverse worldwide following. His brand new EP, I'm Not the Only One (2010), was launched September 26th, 2010 to a full house at Montreal's La Sala Rossa.

  3. Life By Numbers Montreal premiere
    Bohemian Soul Revival
    (independent short film)

    Life By Numbers Montreal premiere - Bohemian Soul Revival (independent short film) - Acoustic Nights 7 Seductively thought-provoking, was the subdued consensus among the trio the night the concept, Bohemian Soul Revival was born. The quiet calm beget an eerie stillness in the avant-garde room rich with Andy Warhol quote wall-hangings and Dalai Lama artwork; hinted by the dense smoke and wispy flavor of Nag Champa incense. Use the mediums of art, in every capacity possible, to force people into self-reflective, potentially life-course-altering, thought and action. Words and narrative to depict a message relating to the urgency of our mortality, magnificence of our potential and alternative roads to the path of self-fulfillment; in essence, don't stay on the paved road if it doesn't serve you. Cinematography to amplify the message and tickle the senses of wonder alive in the world around us; the uniqueness and majesty contained within the seemingly insignificance of human interaction, nature and the images we observe, but do not see. Music that connects the two, elevates the experience and imprints on the soul. In short: Make art that transcends.

But if you want to understand the exact process of how to live the life you've always wanted, dream in color, break down barriers and open yourself up to every possibility and goal that's been sitting dormant in your heart since the day you were born, then look no further.
