For nearly a decade, we’ve built Clocks + Colours by using our platform to tell stories. Most have been fictional—tall tales based on historical moments and personalities that have shaped us. Nine years after starting C+C, we can no longer ignore the fact that we have a real platform, and with that, the ability to do more. Starting now, we’re going to be highlighting the people, scenes and cultures we dig. Ultimately though, the goal is to highlight YOU.
You’ve helped us get to where we are, and now it’s our turn to give back. Just one of the ways we're going to do this is with the C+C weekly “6-Pack” newsletter. The weekly will include 6 crushable short-cans worth of action, music, food + drink, makers and more. Our real goal? Show our community OUR community!
Each week, we’ll be asking you—our loyal ride or dies—to submit your favourite bands / songs, passion projects and much more. It’s your turn to take our stage - we’ve said enough.

We want to hear YOUR music. Whether you’re jamming in your mom’s garage with your closest buds or working your demo, we want to shine a light on the independent artists who aren't getting the attention they deserve. Make sure to include a link to your Spotify and Instagram—we want to blow your tunes out of the water!
What’s the fuel that keeps your engine running? Is it a smoked brisket, a stiff old fashioned, or your grandma’s secret sauce recipe? Whether it’s a meal you had at your local restaurant or whipped up in your own backyard, tell us about your food and drink obsessions so we can showcase the chefs and barkeeps who live to keep our bellies full.
- Food and Cocktail recipes
- Chefs and mixologists
We want to tell the stories behind the people who are creating art with their own two hands and the tools of their trade. Cobblers, blacksmiths, hatters, poets, writers, carpenters, painters, glass blowers and everyone in between—if they make cool shit, we want to tell people about it. Make sure you include their Instagram handle.
The Dark Room
Know someone who never misses a perfect moment? Introduce us to your favourite photographer or just send us a photo that left you speechless. Make sure you include their Instagram handle so we can share it with the world.
What gets you fired up? We’re looking for those videos you send to your buddies. The gnarliest, fastest, biggest, most insane edits that jack up your heart rate, drop your jaw and blow your mind. Here are some thought-starters:
- Action: skateboarding, snowboarding, BMX, mountain biking and, of course, heavy slams, etc
- Motorsports: dirt biking, motorcycles, Baja trucks, F1, monster trucks and rally cars, etc
- Sports: crazy catches, massive hits, unfathomable shots, and mind-bending saves, etc
Road Trippin’ Tunes
We want to know what you’re listening to right now. What tracks do you have on repeat? What makes you crank up the volume, or makes a long drive feel just a little shorter?
