Jenny Lewis
Jenny Lewis
Jenny Lewis has confirmed her highly anticipated return with her fourth solo album - On The Line - out spring 2019 on Warner Bros. Records. Since releasing 2014’s critically acclaimed The Voyager— which NPR likened to “California sunshine glinting off the Pacific Ocean, steeped in the West Coast pop sounds of the 1970s”— Jenny Lewis has been plotting her highly anticipated return. Between headlining dates around the globe and stealing the show at Newport Folk Festival 2018, not to mention captivating audiences as special guest of Beck at Madison Square Garden, Jenny has been fastidious in recording brand new material. Featuring a who’s who of supporting players including Beck, Benmont Tench, Don Was, Jim Keltner and Ringo Starr among others, and recorded at the distinguished Capitol Studios, On The Line will no doubt be a triumphant and irresistible highlight of 2019.
La Force
La Force
La Force is Ariel Engle, vocalist and newest member of Broken Social Scene. The music of La Force is nocturnal electronic pop, featuring Engle's enchanting vocals over dynamic production.

Her presence resounds throughout Broken Social Scene’s 2017 album, Hug Of Thunder, lending fluid, commanding lead vocals to the oblique anthem “Stay Happy” and the soaring "Gonna Get Better," leaving an indelible mark on the collective’s rousing performances. Stepping up to the role first helmed by the immeasurable talents Leslie Feist, Emily Haines (of Metric), and Amy Millan (of Stars), Engle brings La Force's singularity to the familial energy of Broken Social Scene.

Born out of the culmination of AroarA – her musical project with husband and Broken Social Scene bandmate Andrew Whiteman – La Force is a deep reflection on the magic and dismantlement of motherhood; the never-ending tightrope walk of life, and death; and the re-discovery of self.

First single “You Amaze Me” layers seductive melodies over restrained electronics. A love song to Whiteman, “You Amaze Me” defines the tender but powerful essence of La Force. Shaped with Warren Spicer of Plants & Animals, and featuring members of Suuns, Patrick Watson, and Broken Social Scene, "You Amaze Me" crystallizes the reverent, spiritual tone of Engle's musical being.

Borrowing its identity from the tarot card representing Strength, La Force captures the bold creative spirit of an undeniable voice.
