WINDMILLS windmillskeepmoving.com On a very basic level, windmills convert energy. As an artist, Windmills does much the same thing, taking personal tragedies, triumphs and memories and transforms them into songs dripping with heartbreak and anguish. Windmills is the moniker of moody indie swoon pop artist, Cory Myraas. A clever songwriter with strong lyrical command, the words in a Windmills song are always accompanied by a soundscape that tells you how to feel. A genuine one-man show, this is a musician in charge of his craft. Windmills has released two full-length records - Keep Moving and 2015’s Measures - and two EPs, most recently 2017’s “Death Of A Ladies’ Man”. Windmills has also completed multiple Canadian tours, secured performance spots at festivals like Riffandia, Canadian Music Week, and Shambhala, and reached the Top 12 of the prestigious 2015 PEAK Performance Project.

“Joshua Hyslop’s new album is an unabashed folk record, but has gentle washes of other instrumentation that are like a soft mist coming over the mountain” – The Province “In Deepest Blue is an album of well-crafted, feel-good songs with smooth, comforting melodies. Hyslop has a way of finding the silver lining and letting it shine through on each song—even when he isn’t singing at all.” – MXDWN
