Sloan

Twice Removed is Sloan's second album, originally released in 1994, and re-issued in a deluxe triple-vinyl edition in September, 2012. A favourite of critics and fans alike, Twice Removed established Sloan's alternative pop voice and showcased their talents as four distinctive songwriters.

The re-issue features two discs of previously unreleased recordings from the era including demo tracks and unreleased songs.

A Tribute to Katy Perry

A true California girl, Katy Perry is an unforgettable head-turner whose catchy songs, unique style and explosive performances have won over audiences all over the world. Not since Britney Spears, has a pop princess made such an impact on the music scene.

The outspoken singer-songwriter began her career as a serious gospel artist, but it was the transition to mainstream music that shot Katy to fame, when her quirky album, One of the Boys, became the 33rd best-selling album world-wide in 2008. Her sophomore album, Teenage Dream, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and has seen chart-topping success with the hits California Gurls, Teenage Dream and Firework.

Named by Billboard Magazine as one of the most important artists of the decade, there is nothing stopping Katy's star from shining as brightly as the glittery outfits she wears on stage. Whether she is opening for the Video Music Awards or hamming it up as a host for the Teen Choice Awards, Katy Perry always leaves the audience yearning for more.

 

A Tribute to Lady Gaga

It has been a while since a new pop artist has made her way in the music industry the old-fashioned/grass roots way by paying her dues with seedy club gigs and self-promotion. This is one rising pop star who has not been plucked from a model casting call, born into a famous family, won a reality TV singing contest or emerged from a teen cable TV sitcom.

"I did this the way you are supposed to. I played every club in New York City and I bombed in every club and then killed it in every club and I found myself as an artist. I learned how to survive as an artist, get real, and how to fail and then figure out who I was as singer and performer. And, I worked hard."

 

Bella Clava

Feeling rebellious, the band got together one night with the plans of robbing a convenience store…but then decided that starting a band would be more dangerous. The name “Bella Clava” seemed most appropriate. Small towns make big sounds. These hooligans made so much noise, they had to leave the mean streets of Thunder Bay for a bigger city. They moved down to Toronto because they heard that the CN tower had started changing colours…it has been three years and they still find it mesmerizing!

Jessica Van Wyck

My name is Jessica Van Wyck I am 18 years old. I have been singing all my life, and I like to write songs from my own experiences. I graduated from St. Mary's high school in Owen Sound as well as grew up there. I am currently enrolled in my first year at Lambton College in Sarnia to become a Child and Youth worker. I am a very easy going individual and I love meeting new people!
