Soundscapes is an independent CD, vinyl, DVD and music book retailer located in the Little Italy neighbourhood of downtown Toronto. The shop was founded with the simple intent of carrying the best music of all styles and persuasions. Our inventory includes (but is not limited to) folk, jazz, world, psych, garage, prog, blues, soul, reggae, classical, experimental, noise, americana/country, electronic, hip-hop, R&B, metal and pop/rock. We also devote our energies to finding the best in reissues of all genres and imports from across the pond.
Soundscapes is a ticket outlet for many independent promoters and we regularly provide tickets for the town's cornerstone venues, such as The Horseshoe Tavern, Lee's Palace, The Garrison, The Mod Club, The Music Gallery and The Opera House, among others. A long-time supporter of Toronto's independent music scene, we have a large consignment section and have hosted many in-store performances from local artists.
Since its birth in August of 1999, the store has quickly grown into one of Toronto's most-respected and loved music shops. Most importantly, our shelves are stocked not only by the tastes of our staff, but also through suggestions of many a regular customer. We pride ourselves on a relationship with our clientele that is based on respect and a mutual love of music.
