For the last few years, the “Toronto Sound” has been shorthand for chilly OVO-inspired beats and vocals that blur R&B and hip-hop. But a new generation of emerging artists is slowly changing the definition into something warmer and gentler. Jaunt are part of an interconnected group of musicians that includes Daniel Caesar, River Tiber, BADBADNOTGOOD and Charlotte Day Wilson who meld pop, soul, jazz, R&B and indie rock. Their upcoming EP “Cue” blends even more influences than their Usher- and Alicia Keys-referencing 2016 release, Chat, intersecting male and female vocals with funky Prince synths, quietly virtuosic percussion and the occasional guitar solo. – NOW Magazine, “Toronto Musicians to watch 2018”
