Hearts&Mines is an Ottawa-based alternative group making a difference by making great music. Formed in 2009 by Matt Luloff (lead vocals, guitar) following his military service in Afghanistan, Hearts & Mines delivers powerful and emotionally charged songs that cut through the sonic clutter. The lyrical poetry of Luloff's songs is driven home by a full band including Jason Watts on drums and backing vocals, Rob Hanlon on bass and Michael Pineault on keys. Resiliant, zealous and emotionally raw, Hearts & Mines strike a nerve with listeners, reminding them of the injustice of this world and pushing for change. Over the past year, with development assistance from NewCap Radio, Hearts & Mines have been able to take their sound to a broader audience, making multiple television and radio appearences and playing shows across Ontario. Currently in studio recording their first full-length album with producer Jordon Zadorozny (Sam Roberts Band, Melissa Auf der Maur) Hearts & Mines is set to light listeners on fire with its unique brand of agro-pop. This is the soundtrack of the revolution.

Featured Artist

Matthew Luloff was a valued employee of the Château Lafayette. His dedication to his work, his band, his cause, and his friends is reflected in the output and recent success of Hearts&Mines. Having been given a chance to compete for the Big Money Shot on Live88.5FM, Matt and his bandmates have been working non-stop preparing for their shot at victory. With his continued commitment and determination, I’m sure that Matt will see success in all his endeavours.
Rob Hanlon, a newer addition to our staff and to Hearts&Mines, is a dedicated and hard-working team member. He has seemingly limitless abilities and works hard to motivate and inspire those around him. With Rob in the band, I'm sure the success of Hearts&Mines will continue to grow and expand.
Congrats to Matt, Rob, and Hearts&Mines!
