Let me introduce you to HKMW
Music to follow shortly

"I have a vision… not for the music really, but for how I feel the music and sounds will reach out and stir and emotion or thought. To be here you have to want to do the same. We are not writing songs. We are not making music. We are becoming the fear and joy, the happiness and hate of mankind. We are becoming the memory of a loved one or enemy… a thought and/or feeling you just can’t sing. We are a consciousness. Mine.Your’s. Our’s"

For the past three years, I’ve been inviting my closest friends to come together and aid in the celebration of the annual Fried Dough party. Each year, the event was introduced with the phrase “For One Night Only The Legendary Fried Dough Bands Returns To Perform…”, which was always followed by the name of one of my favourite albums. But this year we’ve decided to do things a little bit differently. This year we decided to continue our celebratory tradition, but use it as more of a launching pad for our individual, yet collective musical endeavors.

On May 30th, for one night only, the legendary Fried Dough Band returns for what will be our most exclusive, yet inclusive event yet. This year we have the freedom to create for you the party we’ve always wanted, outside of your usual concert setting. We unite a little earlier to bring you Scott and Steve’s Loft - a non-stop musical and theatrical extravaganza in the form of everyone’s favourite type of celebration… an all night house party.
Although I have a big mouth, I’m going to have to keep it closed on all the (add enticing adjective) details of what to expect. All I can tell you is this:

Two lofts - Four acts
Seamless sets - Wacky-ass shit
Catfish
Hope to see you there.
Thank you for being a part of the Fried Dough Experience.

biography
Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Demsky has been perfecting his unique style of songwriting with help from the people that inspire him every day, his friends and family. For the past decade, Demsky has played well over 400 shows across Canada and the Northeastern region of the States with the likes of Vanderpark, Fried Dough and The Boo. 2010 turned out to be a year of growth and time well spent on the making of his first ever EP ‘The Man with the Kite’. The title was chosen after reading Aldous Huxley’s book, ‘Island’ - a passage of which Demsky found particularly inspiring:

"The man with the kite?" Will was puzzled. "He does his work down here," she explained; "but he holds a string in his hand, and at the other end of the string is a kite, and the kite is forever trying to go higher, higher, Higher. Even while he's at work, he feels the constant Pull from Above, feels the Spirit tugging insistently at the flesh. Think of it! A man of affairs, a great Captain of Industry—and yet, for him, the only thing that Really Matters is the Immortality of the Soul."

Lessons of love, loss, choices, perseverance, devotion, and adaptability are some of the themes on 'The Man With The ... (+) expand

Whatever you do, don't delete any tracks. That's the worst because listeners lose their investment in your songs, and that sucks. Also, please take a read on this blog, which is really useful.

If you have questions, please let me know. Keep up the great music!

FRIED DOUGHENT! I love the new HKMW song and was luck to "discover" it. Please do me and you a favor, don't upload any new tracks for about a week. You have some great artists on your label, but they aren't getting the hearts that they deserve. It may be because you are uploading too many tracks at one time. Slow your roll. Take it easy. Let these tracks percolate and see what happens. Trust me. It'll be helpful to hold off.

One more recommendation...don't delete previously uploaded songs. I know you probably have to in order to upload a new one but if you wait to level up you can upload more eventually. Listeners feel "invested" in your songs, if you will, and deleting them in turn causes listeners to lose points invested and made from your songs. Also, you probably won't be able to level up that way, as the points you made are also gone when songs are deleted.

Really liking the new one, cheers!

I'm an Italian based in Germany, I've seen an italian surname (Cariboni) in your news.
I imagine that there are sooo many italians in Toronto.

I'll be looking forward to more from you then.

I was able to see Dr. Dog in Asheville last month, it was great! Especially hearing The Old Days live, quite an experience.

A random suggestion for you as a new artist, mainly because I like what you have here and think it will do well.

Wait a while before uploading anything new. Maybe a couple weeks or so, so that your songs don't compete with each other for bumps/hearts/votes/whatever. Before you know it I bet they'll post on the homepage.
