Heavy Weather was formed in 2011 to showcase East Coast musicians to the rest of Canada and the world. Their unique videos are filmed and recorded live on location. To date they have over two hundred beautiful, lush videos available on-line at heavyweather.ca.

Featured bands include Kat McLevey, Matthew Hornell, The Heavy Horses, Repartee (Newfoundland), The Modern Grass, Breagh Mackinnon (Nova Scotia), Les Hay Babies (New Brunswick) and Coyote (Prince Edward Island).
