Our congratulations go out to Curtis Beaudry for winning the Calgary finals of the Great Canadian Song Search. He has a great voice, beautiful songs and we are excited for his impending album release. The national finals will be held in Toronto this July. We’ll be rooting for our hometown boy.

Big thank you to our fellow competitors. It was great meeting these fantastic local artist and we can’t wait to collaborate with them down the road.

INDIE MUSIC MONDAY – KIERAN STRANGE
If you spend $.99 today it should be on iTunes buying Adamantine Hearts by Kieran Strange . The song is jam packed with catchy lyrics and irresistible melodies. It’s definitely my favorite song by this talented singer-songwriter and I cannot stop singing it in my car. You can also listen to the track on her YouTube channel.
British Pop Rocker Kieran Strange is all about being yourself, being different and being strong. She’s one of those amazing people who can encourage everyone around her to follow their passions while delivering a strong message of individuality. Watching her interact with her fans is inspiring. She loves them dearly and you can see it by how they respond and support her. Get in on the #strangers action and follow her on twitter. This year she’s even up for a Shorty Award, which honours the best in social media.
I’ve been incredibly lucky to tour with Kieran and play a few shows with her. We had the most amazing Canada Music Week sleepover party last March when we split a hotel room. There is nothing like a girl party to really bond with great musicians and good people. Kieran’s stage shows are packed with energy and she seems to really get what her audience wants. She’s undeniably generous and I really expect fantastic things to come from her in the coming years.
