Toronto sounds good. It always has. As a nexus of Canadian music, the city has been enriched by wave after wave of homegrown and international musicians. Its stages, streets and alleys resonate with the notorious jams, numbing heartaches, and lucky breaks that are the city's musical DNA.
City Sonic is a series of short films about extraordinary artists shot in places where their musical lives were transformed. It's about the creative reverb that has made Toronto’s music scene.
