Toronto R&B Sounds is a concert series  that attracts an audience from around the world, thanks to the support of Airbnb Experiences. This showcase provides an opportunity for rising artists to perform in front of a versatile audience, gaining the benefits of touring, while staying in their city.

Showcase slots are up to 30 minutes long, and are open to vocalists only (Soul, R&B fusion). We are searching for the Daniel Caesars and Jessie Reyez of Toronto (old school sound with a new school feel). Artists will be singing to the backing tracks of their songs. No bands, no TVs, no clutter, just you, a mic and the crowd. This event series is very intimate and subdued, which provides ample opportunity for making serious eye contact with performers.
