Based out of Toronto, Canada, My Freakin Ears is a collaborative effort between some of Toronto’s biggest die-hard music fans and musicians alike – showcasing rising independent bands and songwriters everywhere. Founded by 22 year music veteran Joey Proulx, My Freakin Ears isn’t quite the newest kid on the block with its roster of veteran musicians and writers. We’re focused on bringing you real music news, events, opinions, reviews and more from fellow music lovers immersed in the scene. You won’t find fluffy, corporate paid-for reviews here.

It’s always been a passion of mine to combine music with my love of web technologies and this was my way of giving back to the local music community that I love so much. Ok so that’s a nice way of saying “Hey I didn’t make it as a famous rock star so I’m going to document it instead!

Joey Proulx

Whether it’s punk, rock, dirty hip hop, metal, indie – you name it, we hope to cover it. Check out some behind-the-scenes photos, reviews, interviews and most importantly, discover new music!
