New Music: “Love Too Soon” by Born Ruffians

Pop with a cool edge and a shot of heartache is what the new single, “Love Too Soon”  from emerging Toronto based Born Ruffians will bring to your playlist.  

With the sweet voice of front man Luke Lafonde, along side fellow band members Mitch Derosier and Andy Lloyd, this latest release from one of Canada’s coolest bands sees the return of original drummer Steve Hamelin.

The video directed by alt-rock band July Talk’s  Leah Fay Goldstein and Peter Dreimanis, is set in a dreamy backstage and follows Lafonde as he navigates down the passageway telling a  bittersweet tale of a lost love. 

Pretty sure you’ll want to add it to your playlist too, so here’s a link!

SCOPE Miami Beach 2017 x Amar’e Stoudemire’s The Melech Collection

SCOPE Miami Beach 2017 has announced a very special collaboration with Amar’e Stoudemire’s The Melech Collection, his contemporary art educational platform.

The Melech Collection translates to “King”, and is the genesis of Stoudemire’s acclaimed career in sports, a lifelong interest in culture, and dedication to philanthropy. Uniting seemingly disparate audiences of sports and contemporary art, The Melech Collection teaches the value of cultural capital through the cumulative knowledge of mind and body; to be truly empowered, awareness and action must exert in conjunction.

Stoudemire will curate a 40 foot installation as a highlight of SCOPE Miami Beach’s Special Programs.  Additionally, Stoudemire will conceptualize and lead a lively panel discussion in SCOPE’s Atrium, moderated by Sotheby’s.

Definitely on my “Must-See” List for this edition of SCOPE Miami Beach!
