John River – The Calm (Official Trailer) [Video]

Toronto, ON – I’m very excited to announce that John River is dropping his debut project The Calm on November 20th. I was introduced to River back in June when he released “Every Evening” and I instantly became a fan.

River is a 17-year-old rapper from Mississauga, Ontario that is well beyond his years. At such a young age he is impressively aware of his surroundings and uses his music to speak on important topics, such as gun violence, love, poverty, and following your passion. In one word I would describe his music as, “captivating.” With the mixtape just around the corner, River put together a preview video that includes old and new footage of him rapping as child, performing at events and also some behind the scenes clips at video shoots. The footage was shot by Trayne. Check it out below.

Natasha was born and raised in Toronto. She graduated from York University almost 2 years ago and since then has co-founded a youth led, social enterprise called The Next Edition which uses media and art to engage youth with their community. For the past year and a half she has been working with young aspiring artists who are looking for a way to showcase their skills and have their voice heard. With juggling weekly meetings, managing a website, and planning events for hundreds of people Natasha takes refuge in urban music. Researching and knowing the latest headlines, and newest tracks in the hip-hop world is something that she loves. But more importantly for her hip-hop is a lot more than just a genre of music, it is a culture and it has shaped who she is today. Finding a way to combine her passion for music, the knowledge she has gained from working with young people and the issues she has seen in the community is a goal Natasha would like to achieve in the near future. Recently, Natasha has taken on PR work for rappers and DJs.
