Sidewalk Hustle

About the Hustle

One of the world’s 100 most influential music blogs according to Style of Sound. Listed in CBC‘s list of ‘Canadian music blogs you need to be reading’.

Sidewalk Hustle was launched back in 2007, at first as a weekly music podcast later morphing into a daily blog in 2008 saturated with local music coverage, fashion news, and culture. It later grew into a leading online destination for new music, fashion, beauty, tech, and lifestyle.

Today, Sidewalk Hustle nav­i­gates through the masses of music, fashion, art, design, and lifestyle, hand picking the very best culturally relevant content. Sidewalk Hustle’s daily news blurs the lines that separate music and fashion, highlighted by original editorials, show reviews, monthly mix tapes, feature interviews, and Sidewalk Hustle TV, an online video series dedicated to telling compelling, stylized stories about both topics.
