This March, Montreal’s own Nightwood will be the artist-in-residence at the McGill run radio station CKUT 90.3 FM. From 3-5 PM every Tuesday this March Nightwood will take over the airwaves but not only will they be playing tunes for us, they will also be bringing in some very special guests.
Who’s heard of the 23 year old, Jamaican Canadian hip hop artist extraordinaire Jonathan Emile? Well if you haven’t yet, I guarantee you will soon enough. This is one of those truly unique artists that bring something different to the table or in Emile’s case I should say things. If you buy his latest EP, The Lover/Fighter Document, which I highly recommend you do, you’ll notice that Emile mixes all kinds of genres into his music. Every song is truly different and captures you in it’s own way.
