Beach Season is a Canadian duo comprised of Sam Avant and Simon Blitzer exploring the sound existing within the intersection of R&B and Electronic Pop music. We sat down and chatted with Sam and Simon about their recent decision to leave their record label, how to build longevity as artists, discovering their love for making music, and plans for the future. Big things to come from these lovely Calgarian boys!

A group of us went down to Guadalajara for the holidays to experience life in Mexico's second largest city. Our days consisted of curb tacos, skateboarding, and a little rooftop yoga to keep everything moving. We had some very special run-ins with a few local Mexican families that will keep us smiling for months to come :)
Our friend Reuben Bullock is the front man of Calgary’s very own, Reuben and the Dark. He gave us some time in the middle of their North American tour to talk music, skateboarding, and overcoming self-doubt. His words are honest, insightful, and rather inspiring - making this is a very special one for us.
