Last month, the Music Unlimited service celebrated alongside Arts & Crafts, the iconic Toronto-based record label, for their 10th anniversary festival Field Trip Music & Arts Festival. The fest featured performances from their marquee artists, including Dan Mangan.
As the festival’s surprise late addition, the acclaimed singer/songwriter re-emerged from a short touring break after the birth of his first son. However, as a staple of the Arts & Crafts roster, it’s hard to imagine the festival without him. With two JUNO Awards under his belt, he’s established himself not only in the music community, but as a voice for Canada as a writer for Huffington Post Canada. Articulate and personable, Mangan has connected in a big way with his fans not only in Canada but internationally, sharing the stage with The Decemberists, The Walkmen, Metric and more. He even performed for Prince William and Kate Middleton at the 2011 Canada Day celebration in Ottowa (yes, really!)
Watch him talk about the new addition to his family, upcoming musical endeavors and more in the video below. Then, re-visit his catalog on the Music Unlimited service.

Last month, the Music Unlimited service celebrated alongside Arts & Crafts the iconic Toronto-based record label, for their 10th anniversary festival Field Trip Music & Arts Festival. The fest featured performances from their marquee artists, including The Darcys.
As a relatively new addition to the Arts & Crafts family, the band had an impressive start with the their self-titled debut album released in 2011. They stuck their neck out from the get-go, shattering any questions of doubt by announcing at the time of The Darcys release that two more albums were to come. They quickly fulfilled with an ambitious and haunting full-album interpretation of Steely Dan’s AJA. They are currently preparing to release the final of the three, Warring, on September 17th, their first album fully recorded in Toronto. Hear them talk more about Warring in the interview below, then listen to them on the Music Unlimited service.
Last month, the Music Unlimited service celebrated alongside Arts & Crafts, the iconic Toronto-based record label, for their 10th anniversary festival Field Trip Music & Arts Festival. The fest featured performances from their marquee artists, including the band Stars. Formed in the late 90’s, Stars quickly became a critically-acclaimed, award-winning group, catching ears with the albums Nightsongs & Heart, then later receiving gold-selling status after releasing Set Yourself on Fire in 2004.
Their latest release The North was followed with performances at Coachella and later Field Trip, where we caught up with Torquill Campbell & Amy Millian to talk about the fun of festivals, Arts & Crafts impact on the Toronto community and their plans for the rest of the year. Watch below, then listen to them on the Music Unlimited service.
