Adria Kain gives us a taste of what goes on in the depths of her mind with “Higher”. She speaks nostalgically on her experiences growing up in the suburbs of Burlington, ON. to moving into the city of Toronto, realizing that none of these places are really where she wants to be. Facing challenges and hard times along the way, Kain keeps us uplifted by reassuring us that regardless of what she goes through, her determination to succeed and make it higher is never ending. The song also keeps the mood high with its uptempo, rhythmic & trap like sounds. You can expect this song and more on Adria’s highly anticipated album entitled “Island In My Mind”, set to release later this fall.
Manifesto’s ongoing goal is to help support and develop well-rounded young artists in Toronto, and arm them with the tools to succeed. With this vision in mind, Manifesto developed a 4 class curriculum, entitled The Mentor Class Series, carried out over this past November, December & January. The classes took place in the basement of Manifesto’s office at 37 Bulwer St, and were a resounding success. Each class was moderated by David “Click” Cox, and included expert panelists like Illangelo, Rich Kidd, Skratch Bastid, Gaurav Sawhney, Katrina Lopes, Cameron Wright, and many more… From there we invited young artists who attended the classes to record at Dream House Studios and this month we will be showcasing some of the work recorded.
