Devan + Jon Vinyl – nascar

Two emerging Canadian powerhouses (and Alfitude favourites) join forces today on the release of ‘nascar’.

Initially a solo release by Devan, this new edit features vocals from R&B wonder-kid Jon Vinyl – and it truly is a collaboration that exceeds all expectations.

Together, these artists have managed to create one of the most sublime releases of the week, showcasing a triumphant union of soul and pop.

“This song came about in an interesting way because it evolved out of a freestyle. I usually start with lyrics, or at least a general concept/emotion that I want to draw from. In this case, I just sat down and looped some chords on the guitar and left a voice note running until the song was pretty much done. It came very quickly, and I didn’t really know what I was trying to say until it was finished. It’s about escapism and wanting to drive away from anxiety and sadness.” – Devan

“Working with Devan on ‘nascar’ was a great experience. As soon as I heard the song, I immediately fell in love with the approach she took with the songwriting. My goal was to add some different textures to an already great song to create a new experience for our fans. I can’t wait for everyone to hear this special track.” – Jon Vinyl

The track is lifted from Devan’s forthcoming ‘Liquid Sunshine’ deluxe EP, which is out this September.

Jon Vinyl – All Bad

I’ve lost count of the number of times that I have featured Canadian R&B talent Jon Vinyl, and yet I am still obsessed.

New single ‘All Bad’ offers a sublime taster for his fabulous new EP ‘Lost In You’, which is out now.

“Crafting this project was the most vulnerable I’ve ever been with my artistry. To me, music is most beautiful when you push through the discomfort of raw emotions, take risks, and most importantly, take your time.”

Jon Vinyl – Addicted (Acoustic)

The full production of this track was already featured a while back, but this acoustic version… Damn… The hairs on the back of my neck stood alive for three minutes while this played.
