IMM - Calgary has never looked (or sounded) this good!

 Calgary has never looked (or sounded) this good!

Check out this new promotional video from Tourism CalgaryCalgary Economic Development and Calgary Telus Convention Centre.  It does a great job of showcasing the beauty of the city, the culture, and community in a way I can’t find the words for.

The video features Calgary artists  Jocelyn and Lisa performing the song Right Here, written by composer Mike Shields.

This video does a great job to dispel the “Cow Town” and “Stampede City” connotation that is all to quickly associated with Calgary.

See how many of the locations you can recognize!

Freedom (Anthony Hamilton & Elayna Boynton) - Django Unchained Soundtrack

Categories: Music News | Posted by: Jenavive
“I effing love that soundtrack” – Jenavive

I’ve been listening to the Django Unchained Soundtrack quite a bit the last few days. If you haven’t heard of it, Django Unchained is a western film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino,  set in the deep south / old west.  The soundtrack itself has a variety of musical genres, from gangster rap to western, folk and soul music.

This is by far my favorite track off the album. Freedom – by (Anthony Hamilton & Elayna Boynton).

You can stream the soundtrack in it’s entirety on Soundcloud.

Hello lovelies!

Wonder is finally up on iTunes. Just follow the link:
and share it with your friends.

There’s a new song up on the site and ready for download. It’s a cover of Smoke Baby by one of my all-time idols Hawksley Workman. If you’ve never caught his live show before DO IT. He is seriously one of the best Canadian artists around. I had the pleasure of finally meeting him last time he came to Calgary. Maybe one day we’ll collaborate…
Have a listen and let me know what you think!

Demo versions of two new songs are up on Reverbnation. Go check them out at:!/jenavive
