    Singer-songwriter Mandolynne Knott, a graduate of Metalworks Institute's Music Performance & Technology Diploma Program, has released her new single "Hands". She released the song with the following message: "This song is for anyone who has escaped an abusive situation and navigated their way through the aftermath. May you be gentle on yourself while riding the waves, forgive yourself for all you did to cope, and give yourself the space and permission to heal. You are not alone. Here's to stepping into our power together." Be sure to listen to the new track wherever you get your music.
    Jacob Wagner is the drummer for the Toronto-based technical death metal band Apogean and a graduate of Metalworks Institute's Professional Sound (Audio Specialist) Diploma Program. The band formed in 2020 and they have recently released their debut EP "Into Madness". The five-track EP is based on a conceptual narrative, a story “of the fall from the heights of sanity, to the very depths of madness and all that can be experienced on this journey,” with the music carrying the listener on “this path of knowledge, loss, and resurgence”. Be sure to listen!
