The band plan to release new music in 2019, and to celebrate, they’ll be going on their most extensive North American tour in years.

The Philosopher Kings

Two decades ago, THE PHILOSOPHER KINGS took the Canadian music industry by storm with their infectious melodies, undeniable energy and a unique combination of pop and alternative rock. The eminently memorable, groove-infused songs “I Am the Man”, “Cry”, “Hurts to Love You”, “Give Back the Love”, “Charms” and “Castles in the Sand” are but a few examples of what made them a live event favourite.

The band’s self-titled debut album (1994) spawned the hit single “Charms”, which landed on the U.S. Top 40. The album eventually earned Gold status in Canada. Their commercial, critical and popular breakthrough occurred with the release of the second album, “Famous, Rich and Beautiful” (1997), which was certified Platinum. They also won a Juno Award for Best New Group (1996).

In 2006, the band took a hiatus as the members of the group became busy with individual producing and recording projects. Fast forward to 2017, THE PHILOSOPHER KINGS reunited with a renewed energy, revitalized focus and brand-new material. The lineup is comprised of long-time members Gerald Eaton (vocals), drummer Denton Whited, keyboardist Jon Levine and guitarists James Bryan and Brian West.

As busy and fulfilled as they are with their individual careers, the call from fans to return to THE PHILOSOPHER KINGS fold could no longer be resisted and the band members are thrilled to be able to bring their songs, their superior showmanship and their high-octane, invigorating live shows to stages worldwide.

The Wailers – Keeping the Music Alive

The legendary Wailers band returns to bring its revolutionary sound to fans around the world. Steered by famed bassist and founder Aston “Familyman” Barrett, and joined in solidarity with original Wailers’ guitarists Julian Junior Marvin and Donald Kinsey, The Wailers continue to create musical history.

From 1973 to 1980, Bob Marley & The Wailers recorded, toured and performed before millions of fans worldwide. Since 1981, Familyman and Junior Marvin have carried on the mission to “keep The Wailers together,” just as Bob requested, affirming: “By doing that, you keep me alive through the music.”

In tribute to the late co-founder and drummer Carlton “Carly” Barrett, The Wailers present Aston Barrett, Jr. on drums. It’s startling how this young powerhouse delivers with his uncle’s unique and inspiring landmark style. Lead singer Joshua David Barrett is a Rastaman by lifestyle and culture. Josh impeccably delivers Bob’s powerful message of Jah love and unity through his engaging performance and interaction with the audience.

Adding to the exciting stage show are singers Shema McGregor, daughter of I Three Judy Mowatt, and Hassanah, a multi-cultural powerhouse vocalist and dancer. Veteran Owen “Dreadie” Reid on guitar & bass is a past student of Familyman, while super-charged performer Javaughn Bond rocks on three keyboards. Live audio engineer Dennis Thompson, the man responsible for The Wailers sound in stadiums, clubs, and studios throughout the ‘70s will make special appearances as schedules permit.

Sean Kingston plays Distrikt Nightclub November 23

Sean Kingston  Distrikt Nightclub

Sean Kingston

World-renowned and multi-platinum reggae-pop artist Sean Kingston is thrilled to announce his Canada-wide ‘Made in Jamaica’ radio promotional tour kicking off in November with special guest, award-winning Canadian rapper Peter Jackson.

Dedicating nearly his entire life to music and achieving superstardom when he was just 17, Sean Kingston (Sean Kingston Distrikt Nightclub November 23) has amassed an untold amount of experience as a singer/songwriter over the years. On his third-full length album Back 2 Life, the 23-year-old builds on that experience by greatly expanding his songwriting role, nixing the multi-producer approach of his last release, and pushing for a fresh new sound. Like his 2007 self-titled debut (featuring the double-platinum breakout hit “Beautiful Girls”) and sophomore album Tomorrow (featuring the smash singles “Fire Burning” and “Face Drop”), Back 2 Life fuses reggae, hip-hop, R&B, and electro to create melody-soaked pop. But on Back 2 Life, the singer/songwriter blends his newly strengthened vocals with fiercely inventive effects and hard-hitting live instrumentation—a formula that’s yielded his most passionately inspired work to date.


“This album’s a really honest reflection of where I’m at in my life right now,” says Kingston. “I’m proud that it shows everything, because it shows my growth too.” Teaming up with Jonathan “J.R.” Rotem, Red One (who produced “Fire Burning”) and new producers Nic Nac, Kingston found himself tapping into his musical roots like never before on Back 2 Life. “On this album I felt the need to get back to my culture,” says Kingston, who was born in Miami but moved to Jamaica when he was seven. “It’s much more organic than anything I’ve done before—the music’s real and it hits you on a gut level.”

Indeed, Back 2 Life emerges as Kingston’s most richly eclectic and ambitious album so far. On the album’s title track “Back 2 Life (Live It Up),” for instance, Kingston samples the vocals from the Soul II Soul classic of the same name and twists the lyrics into a triumphant call to action. Sweeping and celebratory, the song mixes pummeling beats with chilling synth effects and Kingston’s fearless assertion that “what won’t kill me makes me stronger.” After a masterful guest rap from T.I., “Back 2 Life (Live It Up)” dissolves into a stripped-down pairing of sampled vocals and delicate piano work that’s both stark and stunning.

Although Kingston keeps up that heady intensity throughout Back 2 Life, many of the tracks are built on party-ready hooks, such as his summer smash “Beat It.” The track featuring Kingston’s crew Chris Brown and Wiz Khalifa, merges breezy melodies and bass-powered beats in a deadly catchy club jam that quickly landed the track on the Billboard Hot 100 chart upon its release this past spring. Bouncy and hip-swinging, “Bomba” combines flamenco-flavored acoustic guitars, soaring vocals, and pounding live percussion in the sonic equivalent of some epic beach party. “Seasonal Love” supercharges old-school R&B with dreamy synth, sultry beats, and a fiery guest verse from Wale, while “Shotta Luv” pairs ferocious guest-rapping from 2 Chainz with a velvety-smooth groove. And on the unstoppable post-breakup anthem “Save One for Me,” Kingston tells off the girl who broke his heart and then finds his own sweet revenge on the dancefloor.


All throughout Back 2 Life, Kingston boldly proves how far he’s come since he first began recording songs on the tiny personal studio his mother bought him when he was 11-years-old. Back then, Kingston would whip up his own reggae-pop hybrids and perform them local block parties and talent shows in Miami (to which he returned after spending several years living with his family in Ocho Rios, Jamaica). But when his mother was convicted of tax evasion and bank fraud and sent to federal prison, the 15-year-old Kingston had to put his music dreams on temporary hold.
After a brief period of homelessness, Kingston began bouncing around the homes of his friends and relatives and ultimately landed a lawn-mowing job to earn the money he needed to make a demo. Thanks largely to Kingston’s dogged persistence in pursuing every hit-making producer he could find online, that demo ended up getting him signed to Rotem’s then-newly-launched label Beluga Heights in 2006—a deal quickly followed by a joint contract with Epic Records and the release of a debut album that went on to sell more than a million copies worldwide and spawn three back-to-back Top 10 singles.

Kingston released his follow-up album Tomorrow in 2009, then—in May 2011—suffered a devastating accident while jet skiing in Miami Beach. After spending nearly a month in the hospital and undergoing two emergency open-heart surgeries to repair a torn aorta, Kingston two months to heal—and start plotting his return to the studio. “I couldn’t go anywhere while I was recovering, so I spent all my time writing songs and listening to beats,” recalls Kingston. “All I wanted was to get back to doing music, which is what I’ve been devoting my life to since I was eight-years-old.”

With a voracious appetite for music including “everything from Taylor Swift to Ne-Yo to Musiq Soulchild to Paramore”—as well as a deep reverence for artists like Bob Marley, Outkast, and Lauryn Hill—Kingston has recently broadened his musical role by serving as a songwriter for such performers as Jason Derulo (“What Ya Say”) and Iyaz (“Replay”) and discovering new musical talents (including Iyaz, whom Kingston found online and signed to his Time Is Money Entertainment label). Still, having sold more than 12.5 million tracks to date, Kingston’s top priority is continually elevating his own music into new and unexpected territory. “A lot’s happened over the past few years—I’ve traveled the world and had relationships and dealt with breakups, so I’m singing from the heart about things that I actually went through,” says Kingston. In capturing those experiences on Back 2 Life, he adds, his main ambition was to keep positive. “I knew I needed to address some difficult things on the album, but my goal was to do it in an upbeat sort of way,” says Kingston. “So the songs on Back 2 Life are catchy and uptempo and everyone can have a great time to them—but at the same there’s no doubt that it’s all the way real.”
