Popguru Sound & Vision Gets John Orpheus, the Wilderness of Manitoba, Odario for "Popguru Revue" Livestream Concert Series
Simeon Ross, Sam Casey and Ghost Caravan are also slated to perform from Toronto's Revolution Recording
Published Sep 15, 2021Immersive Toronto-based music management company Popguru Sound & Vision has announced a Popguru Revue livestream digital concert series this October and November, with performances by John Orpheus, the Wilderness of Manitoba, Odario, Ghost Caravan, Sam Casey and Simeon Ross.
As live music shakily treads its return, the Popguru Revue is bringing an immersive, full-production livestream series via YouTube — broadcasting live from Toronto's Revolution Recording — that can be enjoyed safely from the comfort of your home. The concerts will take place every Saturday night in October and November, starting at 9 p.m. ET.
All of the artists come from Popguru's diverse roster, which has grown to become a collaborative community. "The collaborations are something that I encourage and something that was a part of the fabric of great labels like Motown and Island in their heyday," founder Graham Stairs said in a statement. "The Popguru Revue — our livestream concert series — was envisioned in the same spirit and will bring the various artists' music to an international viewing audience."
Stairs' vision for Popguru is to encompass the interdependent roles of record labels, licensing agencies, music publishers and management companies to best serve their artists.
Back in July, John Orpheus released his latest album Saga King (one of Exclaim!'s 29 most anticipated Canadian albums of 2021) via Popguru's label imprint the Confidence Emperors. The Wilderness of Manitoba announced their forthcoming album Farewell to Cathedral — the band's first since 2017.
