It's hard not to be charmed by indie rock artist Billy Raffoul at first listen and for good reason. His heartfelt lyrics and emotive vocals make him a true exemplar of a singer-songwriter, but it is the often-creative production that has helped establish him as the cream of the musical crop.
Since coming onto the Canadian music scene in 2017, Billy Raffoul has garnered well over 100 million streams on Spotfiy (no easy feat!) and in 2021, he garnered the SOCAN Songwriting Prize for his single “Western Skies.”
His latest offering is the 2023 EP Drive You Home. The seven-track album boasts notable tunes like "Jim Carrey" and "Alligator", with each song different in their own right while offering the same dreamy-and-captivating vibe fans are now used to when it comes to his music.
Calling Toronto home, it's obvious the indie rocker knows that there is much to love about the city's robust food scene. From some of the best burgers in the city to casual Korean eats, here are Billy Raffoul's favourite spots in Toronto.
