Toronto, ON (May 18, 2017) – A.Side, Canada’s newest multi-platform music and pop culture brand, has officially launched and it’s legit. Spotlighting today’s hottest music and culture trends, the new offering intends to spark and feed conversation with music fans across Canada with its digital magazine OntheAside.com, national television station and social media via takeovers from fan-favourite artists across the globe.
“With A.Side, we’re opening the pop culture conversation to everyone. We’re tapping into what millennials are talking about, and listening to, and giving music lovers unique access to their favourite artists on multiple platforms,” said Tyler Munro, Editor, OntheASide.com.
OntheASide.com launches today with a lineup of snackable lifestyle articles, video interviews with fan-favourite artists and pop-culture essays. Readers will also be treated to original photography and artist guest posts from both emerging and established talent all over the world. The site launches with two new interviews, featuring Bishop Briggs and Mac DeMarco. Bishop Briggs, a London native, now LA-based soul singer, just dropped her new single The Way I Do off her debut self-titled EP. Briggs was interviewed by Munro for a video feature talking about her pre-and-post show rituals, her stage name and karaoke. Mac DeMarco, a Canadian singer-songwriter who recently launched his new album This Old Dog, was also interviewed by Munro for an editorial feature on A.Side.
Adding to the experience is A.Side TV, going live nationally on Tuesday, May 30.
