KO Média – ELLE DECORATION CANADA

KO Média is excited to unveil the fall issue of ELLE Decoration Canada featuring a new way of imagining your dream home by designer Nicholas Ancerl. Crestwood, described as “a dramatic home among the treetops” of Barrie, Ontario, has yet to be built. Instead, it has been brought to life with 23 photo-realistic renders. “The contemporary interiors will have a rustic touch and a neutral colour palette,” Ancerl explains. “We want the colours of nature, seen through the expansive windows, to dominate the interiors.” When asked about setting expectations too high for homeowners with such stunning renders, the designer assures: “Nothing can take away from the experience of actually stepping into a real space.”

This edition is imbued with a desire to create bright, airy living spaces that are both functional and serene. Included are Toronto-based architect Anya Moryoussef’s transformation of a single-car garage into a modern workspace inspired by traditional Italian studiolos; a prefabricated house reimagined by architect Alain Carle to capture the natural play of light and shade throughout the day; an architectural firm’s ingenious use of every nook and cranny in a tiny Vancouver home brimming with joie de vivre; and wood-and-glass containers fashioned by a Montreal couple to give their Old Port loft structure without sacrificing any natural light.

In the spirit of the season, Athena Calderone, author of Cook Beautiful, shares recipes that capture the tones, textures and tastes of fall and tips for creating the ultimate autumn table settings. Readers will also find a curated list of outdoor armchairs, loungers and swings from which to soak up the sun, and patio heaters in all shapes and sizes for the chilly months to come.

We caught up with Quebec native Philippe Malouin, creator of the Hanger chair, to find out how he continues to keep things simple after being listed among the world’s 100 top designers by Architectural Digest. Designer Montana Labelle offers advice for combining elegance and simplicity from her newly opened Lifestyle Studio in Toronto; and Quebecer Danielle Carignan, a pioneer in the personal organizer profession, shares tips to declutter your space and your life.

And for those seeking an escape, this issue has everything from top coffee makers for a meditative morning routine; to a seaside hospitality complex in Iran that blends seamlessly into the blazing red, yellow and orange rock formations of Hormuz Island.

The fall issue of ELLE Decoration Canada will hit stands and Apple News+ today.

BriaR Releases Single and Video – Breathe Fire

Rising singer, lyricist, and performer BriaR has released her debut autobiographical single “Breathe Fire” along with its intergalactic, trance-inducing music video. The first single off of her debut EP Finding BriaR out this fall. Stream “Breathe Fire” here. Press here to watch the music video. The track details BriaR reminiscing about leaving a message on her lovers answering machine, revealing her deepest secrets and expressing her fear of being misunderstood. Finding BriaR is the debut EP from the multi-talented newcomer who grew up in a family of artists, musicians and entertainers, an ambitious musical hybrid that coins a brand-new genre – psychedelic soul – combining R&B, hip-hop and dance with art-rock, punk and hooky pop. BriaR’s breathy vocals are at once sensuous and intimate, creating a vibe that seduces our ears, while stimulating the body’s instincts to get up and move.

“The song came about during the pandemic. I was going through a tough time and I felt as though I wasn’t being heard. I created ‘Breathe Fire,’ an autobiographical record, explaining who I am and what I can bring to the table,” shares BriaR. “Although the record contains personal lyrics, I still wanted this to be a groovy track that makes you want to dance, hence the bass heavy record in the background.”

The daughter of legendary rapper Mack 10 (also known as part of Westside Connection alongside Ice Cube and WC) who also has a stepmom in T-Boz of TLC, BriaR can dream big because she comes from a family that has turned their own ambitions into reality. Growing up in the environment she did helped mold BriaR’s eclectic musical tastes, which incorporate not only the vintage old-school gangsta rap – but also New Wave (“Alanis Morrissette was a big influence in middle school”), grunge (Nirvana), punk (Green Day), pop (Gwen Stefani and No Doubt), rock (Fleetwood Mac), R&B (Michael and Janet Jackson, Aaliyah was “a big influence,” Beyonce, Shakira, TLC).

BriaR wrote the lyrics for the songs on the EP, recording them at home with her younger brother, rapper District 21, very much in the style of personal favorites like Billie Eilish and Finneas or, as she notes, fellow Calabasas residents Willow and Jaden Smith. “I have been obsessed with music since I was two years old,” she says of her upbringing around Topanga and Calabasas. “I remember Ice Cube coming to the house and me wanting to sing for him on the little karaoke machine my dad bought. For my brother and I, there was no other option. This is who we are.”

With Finding BriaR rolling out its five individual tracks this fall, BriaR is ready for the next step of her rise to stardom. “Recording this was like my therapy and it still is my therapy,” says BriaR. “The EP is about discovering the different sides of this individual. These songs helped me realize everything I want.”

JEREMY ZUCKER ANNOUNCES FALL NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

Following the recent release of his new single “18,” today Platinum-Certified singer, songwriter, and producer Jeremy Zucker reveals he will return to touring this fall on his anxiously awaited North American headline tour. The tour kicks off on October 19th in Portland, OR and runs through the end of November, making stops at Los Angeles’ The Novo on October 27th, New York’s Terminal 5 on November 18th, and more—see the full list of tour dates below.

The tour will go on-sale via fan pre-sale Tuesday, July 13th at 10:00AM local time, Spotify pre-sale on Wednesday, July 14th at 10:00AM local time, and general on-sale on Friday, July 16th at 10:00AM local time. Visit Jeremy Zucker Music for more details.

Last month, Jeremy released his new summertime anthem “18,” which paves the way for his highly anticipated sophomore album, set for release later this year. Perfect for a montage in the middle of some long-lost, turn-of-the-century teen flick, Jeremy notably co-wrote and co-produced “18” with friends and fellow artists, Quinn XCII and ayokay, making natural strides with more confident and charismatic storytelling. He says, “‘18’ is written from the perspective of a high schooler dating an older girl, and the thrills and excitement of that relationship. I wrote the song with some friends while we spent a week in Newport, Rhode Island. It feels straight from the soundtrack of an early 2000s coming-of-age film.” Praised by Ones To Watch as “an exhilarating, nostalgic punch,” “18” sets the stage for more new music to come from Jeremy this summer.

Earlier this year, Jeremy teamed up once again with Chelsea Cutler for the brent ii EP. It served as a sequel to their 2019 breakthrough EP, brent, and Platinum-Certified single “you were good to me.” The EP received widespread critical and fan praise, as Jeremy and Chelsea performed singles, “this is how you fall in love” and “emily,” on TODAY and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s #PlayAtHome series, respectively. “18” follows Jeremy’s critically acclaimed debut album, love is not dying, released last year.

The summer of Jeremy Zucker begins now.

ABOUT JEREMY ZUCKER

Jeremy Zucker’s music unfolds like the kinds of stories you share with your best friends. It’s that intimate, detailed, personal, and meaningful. This approach has cemented the New Jersey-born singer, songwriter, and producer as a quietly impactful voice for Gen Z—and beyond. Since emerging in 2015, he has amassed a staggering 5.3 billion global streams and sold 3 million albums. His catalog consists of definitive anthems, such as the Gold-Certified records “talk is overrated” feat. blackbear and “all the kids are depressed” and Platinum-Certified records “you were good to me” with Chelsea Cutler and the breakout “comethru,” which The FADER hailed as “the intoxicating crush anthem that’s become his calling card.” He has teamed up with likeminded visionary Chelsea Cutler for the collaborative EPs—brent [2019] and brent ii [2021]. His full-length debut, love is not dying, bowed in the Top 25 of the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart and garnered widespread praise. Office magazine raved, “the 13-track album reiterates Zucker’s penchant for honest reflections through sincere lyricism,” while Wonderland won’t blame you for “deciding to stan immediately.” Not to mention, he’s received further acclaim from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Billboard, PAPER Magazine, and more. In 2021, he’s set to release his anxiously awaited second full-length album, introduced by the soundtrack-worthy single “18.”

DaVido – A BETTER TIME

Nigerian Afropop sensation Davido has officially released his eagerly anticipated third studio album A BETTER TIME out now via Davido Worldwide Entertainment/ Sony Music U.K. /RCA Records. The 17-track album is available on all DSPs and streaming services – LISTEN HERE.

A BETTER TIME sees the two-time MTV European Music Award winner call for unity at a time of civil unrest across Nigeria and other African nations as he pulls together sounds from all corners of his beloved continent, Africa. A BETTER TIME features African talent from across Nigeria (Tiwa Savage, Mayorkun, Bella Shmurda & C Kay) Ghana (Mugeez), Kenya (Sauti Sol) and South Africa (Sho Madjozi). Davido also reconnects with frequent collaborators Fresh VDM, Peruzzi and Speroach Beatz. Across the waters in the United States, Davido connects with a stellar line up of notable features. On “Birthday Cake” he collaborates with rap legend Nas and Grammy Award winning producer Hit-Boy. “Shopping Spree” sees Davido reunite once again with Chris Brown and Young Thug. Additional appearances from Atlanta’s finest Lil Baby on So Crazy and pop superstar Nicki Minaj.

The album’s first single FEM (produced by Napji) earned widespread praise and shot straight to the No.1 spot in the Apple Music charts in over 8 countries including Nigeria, where it held the top position for 4 weeks. “FEM” became the unofficial protest song embraced by the #ENDSARS movement against police brutality in Nigeria. The track has since enjoyed over 40 million streams globally, viewed over 11m times on YouTube and reached #19 on US iTunes chart.

“One thing about Africans – rich or poor, happy or sad, is that no matter what the situation going on in your country, you always find a reason to smile and just be happy. We (African people) always like to celebrate and A BETTER TIME is that outlet to be free, be happy and hopeful for a better future.” Davido commented.

A BETTER TIME is executive-produced by Davido and his son Ifeanyi Adeleke and follows the highly praised 2019 sophomore album A Good Time which has achieved over 1.2 billion streams to date globally.

Closing 2020 with the momentous release of A BETTER TIMEwhich is fast approaching a staggering 400M combined streams across all platforms and 32 million views across the official videos– Davido continues to cement himself as one of the biggest artists in Africa. The album dominated the No.1 position in the Apple Music charts across 8 territories, including Nigeria, where it maintained this spot for 4 consecutive weeks.

About Davido:

Born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Nigeria, 27-year-old Davido (real name David Adedeji Adeleke) has been a champion for the continent of Africa. He chose to chase his music dreams and whilst doing so earned over 30 awards including a MOBO for Best African Act, MTV EMA for Best International Act, three MTV Africa Music Awards, two BET Awards and two Nigerian Teen Choice Awards for “Top Featured Artist” and “Choice Male Artist.” 

With an unmatched work rate, Davido has delivered back-to-back hits since his musical debut in 2011. Breaking out with successive singles “Back When,” “Dami Duro,” “Gobe,” “Aye” and “Skelewu,” the latter would enjoy attention from Major Lazer and Wiwek who went on to remix the single. His musical elevation would see further global collaborations with Chris Brown, Pop Smoke, Summer Walker, Young Thug, Mayorkun and more. Davido kick-started last year with a sold-out date at London’s prestigious O2 Arena, becoming the first solo African artist to do this. He created waves across America with his smash hit single Fall which is certified gold in the US and in Canada.

With a discography attesting to over a billion global streams and over a billion video views, the Afrobeats forerunner has very much established himself as a force to be reckoned with.

NYBG Autumnal Celebrations

For New Yorkers and visitors alike, the grandeur of the fall season is just 20 minutes from midtown Manhattan and The New York Botanical Garden. NYBG is the perfect place to experience the splendor of fall with the Great Pumpkin Path, scarecrow decorations, and awe-inspiring Japanese chrysanthemums in breath-taking shapes and styles in and around the Conservatory. Explore the seasonal bounty of the Edible Academy, which is also reopening just in time for fall, and traverse the winding trails of the 50-acre, old-growth Thain Family Forest to view the changing colors and textures of autumn in the weeks ahead.

Hordes of gourds await discovery along the twists and turns of NYBG’s Great Pumpkin Path all month long. In particular, on October 24th, giant pumpkins that are some of the largest in the world arrive and will be on view through the first of November. These humongous pumpkins, some weighing more than 2,000 pounds, have been nurtured from seed by doting growers and brought to the Garden in collaboration with the Great Pumpkin Commonwealth.

Another highlight at NYBG are the displays spotlighting kiku in and around the Conservatory and Visitor Center. Highly skilled NYBG horticulturists spent 11 months growing and caring for these chrysanthemums (kiku in Japanese) that were cultivated from single cuttings, pinched back, and tied to frames. Flower buds develop as nights grow longer, and in fall, the plants burst into bloom in modern and ancient styles such as ogiku (single stem), kengai (cascade), and ozukuri (thousand bloom). For guests who can’t make it to the gardens in person, New York Botanical Gardens offers a virtual look into the changing hues with the NYBG Fall Color Cam.

New York Botanical Gardens offer perfectly festive and COVID-friendly activities and protocols. The new, limited timed-entry ticketing system staggers visitors’ arrivals, promotes social distancing, and mitigates the risk of crowding in high-traffic areas. In addition, advance purchase of timed tickets is required to ensure the safety of guests. On top of these changes, new measures include requiring staff and visitors to wear masks, increasing sanitization of public and staff areas, and daily health screenings for on-site staff.

Enjoy the beauties that fall has to offer while staying safe and healthy with NYBG today! Check out their available tickets here and prepare a lovely and colorful trip to the beautiful gardens.
