Started in early 2010, Ride the Tempo aims to help you discover music in a vast land called Canada. We’ll bring you the latest and most interesting music from all 10 provinces and 3 territories. We hope you enjoy your ride. To submit your music please read this page.

Tiana Feng
Tiana is the owner, editor and concert photographer of Ride the Tempo. By day she is a freelance content creator and photographer whose contributions include Exclaim! and Stereogum. You can spot her at concerts as the girl in the cupcake t-shirt. Visit her personal blog at tianafeng.com.

Assistant Editors
Laura Feeney
Laura is the East coast music rep from Fredericton, New Brunswick. She’s a freelance writer with a passion for all things Eastern Canadian, particularly folk rock and kitchen parties. Check out her personal blog, Transitionelle.

Nash Bussieres
Nash is some dude from a Northern Ontario mill town. Also the sound dude for Exclaim!. He focuses mainly on abrasive/aggressive music along with anything that sounds like it’s from 1995. He’s the owner of Glass Cannon Music and he probably knows more about Mega Man than you do.

Nilabjo Banerjee
Nilabjo’s life highlight is meeting the lads from 1D in person backstage. Don’t let that (completely) fool you into dismissing his love for (real) music! First love is and always will be live shows. He also has a cool name therefore he’ll one day rule the internetz.

Katherine Kwan
Ani Hajderaj
