The band also unveiled their entire new album live last Tuesday, March 20 with a very special show from The Glenn Gould Studio at CBC Toronto hosted by Radio 3's Craig Norris. Video footage from the concert will be available on the newly launched cbcmusic.ca in the coming days, but check out CBC's interview with Tony Dekker from soundcheck at Glenn Gould above.
“One of those superbly talented performers that seems to come from out of nowhere. Young Mr. Hyslop has a singer-songwriter maturity far beyond his years.” – CBC Radio
In anticipation of his first full-length album, Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Joshua Hyslop released “What Have I Done?” (feat. Anna Scouten) via Nettwerk Records.
“What Have I Done?” features the vocal and musical talents of a young man with a mature and measured voice. Despite his youth, Hyslop’s music deftly explores the complicated conversation between the battle and brilliance of life.
“What Have I Done?” is the first new song since last year’s six-song EP, titled Cold Wind. EP received early support from CBC, Earshot Magazine, Penguin Eggs, Exclaim! and others.

Mutual Friends is an album of simple, heartfelt pop decorated with art school elegance and occasional folky flourishes.
