Canadian Artist Lisa Lavie’s New Album ‘Sophomore’

Lisa Lavie is a Canadian singer-songwriter with a voice that soars into the range of some of the best female vocalists of our time — think Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, and Mariah Carey. Lavie began her singing career at 16, touring with the Canadian hip-hop group Dubmatique. Soon after, she recorded her own demo CD that ended up landing in the hands of a California-based producer who co-wrote Mariah Carey’s first album.

In 2008, Lavie released her debut album, Everything or Nothing, which includes her song that has been viewed over 8 million times on YouTube, Angel. A big voice with outstanding control, she has toured as a vocalist for the contemporary instrumentalist, Yanni, as well as for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Launching a Kickstarter project to fund her Sophomore album back in the summer of 2015, Lavie raised $33,814 — $8,000 over her set goal of $25k. Despite the bumps along the way that would’ve stopped many dead in their tracks, she held strong to her determination to piece together the album. After over a year of anticipation, Lavie and her backers have finally reaped the rewards. On March 21, 2017, Lisa Lavie released her 11-track album. Sophomore will take you on an emotional ride of R&B ballads showcasing Lavie’s powerful and soulful voice. I feel like I’ve just experienced love, heartbreak, acceptance, and the making of a new beginning all in less than an hour. Five words: A movie for your ears.

Across The Board new single ‘Don’t Drag Me Down’

Across The Board is a Canadian-based and female-fronted band that jams out an infusion of pop, rock, and Americana. Living out their dreams in Toronto, ATB is an award-winning band formed by four multi-instrumentalist musicians — Jacqueline Auguste (vocals, keys, strings), Paul Nanuwa (percussion, vocals), Damien Atapattu (guitar, vocals), and Andy Ramjattan (bass guitar).

Their recently debuted single ‘Don’t Drag Me Down’ — off of their upcoming EP ‘Amends’ — is more than a tune, it’s a statement. Released on International Women’s Day (March 8th), the title of the song pretty much says it all. Using their music as a platform, the lyrics voice a proclamation to stand tall and challenge the outdated principles and ongoing societal-disenfranchisement — they’re pointing at you Big Brother.

Accompanied by a lyric-video, press play and you’ll hear that the composition and vocals have playful pop/rock tones as if they’re secretly saying, “na-na-na-na boo-boo, we will overcome.” Combined with the lyrics, you can sense the confidence in their vision. Check it out below!

Really digging Across The Board’s sounds and you want to see them live? They’ll be playing at Canadian Music Week on April 22, 2017. You don’t want to miss it, since it’s where they plan to release their new EP, ‘Amends’ — mark your calendars!
