There are a few talented True Northers (see how many ways I can say "Canadian") in particular who are chart toppers- go ahead, make us patriotic:
1. Adam Moryto
This is THE man to watch. In alllll the ways there is to watch a man (the ones we can talk about). Acts like a gem, deeds like a mensch, and sparkles like a...like a set of two brilliantly blue eyes (he should not be privy to sunglasses). Moryto has already amassed a following (@adammoryto) from his work on Born to Be Blue, Complete Darkness (with Nick Wilson), and Stockholm (with @bradcsmith). Moryto is popping up everywhere we wouldn’t expect, even in some places where he's not welcomed #Joker? #Batman? #ThisIsHowRumoursStart.
Moryto leans into community as much as he does his characters. He is a major donor to our beloved TIFF, supports Covenant House Toronto, and works with underprivileged cutie patooties! We are proud to call this fine thespian a Canadian.

2. Shaun Frank
Shaun Fr∀nk is turning music, crowds, and 'A's upside down. Singer, songwriter, DJ, producer, Torontonian. Just like Moryto, Frank is repping The Six in a loud way. Taking over arenas, Frank remixes include The Chainsmokers, Vicetone, and even La La Land. Frank be dropp'n beats and mics all over this land (he's a lot cooler than my diction extends). You probably also heard of his new song, No Future ft. Dyson at Ultra in Miami!
Now, it's no surprise that this musical artist also happens to be dating Delaney Jane, one of the hottest artists right now. They are the perfect power couple and they're taking over Toronto one stage at a time.

When Smith isn't handing out roses to Canadian bachelorettes, he is busy Chopping (yup- Smith on Chopped), or taking adorable selfies with puppy eyes... and canines. All the eye action pictured above is doing good things inside my body.
(ps. definite bromance between Smith and Moryto).

5. Loud Luxury
Loud Luxury is repping toque wearers in LA right now. Band members, Andrew Fedyk and Joe Depace, are mixing beats to create tunes that can only fall under one genre: "deep house with a shot of tequila." Loud Luxury's tracks that are literally moving thousands include: See it again and Villains. They also just came back from playing at Ultra in Miami and have gone back and forth from their first show in vegas.

Poirier paints crazy incredible plates (say that 1 time in regular speed). She's not crazy. Her talent is pure cray. Poirier is the resident artist at the Ritz-Carlton because her plates look like how their pillows feel: dream-like. I am sure there is some wet your palate/plate word-play available there...but let's just focus on the crazy beauty that is Poirier's talent.
