«The moment a 5 year old Lia Cole eagerly learned the chords G and C to pull off “You Are My Sunshine” on the acoustic guitar, music became her heart and soul. In typical Lia Cole fashion, she ended that same home video with a resounding soulful riff overtop a hard hitting power chord, that would give the world insight into her undying talent to create her own sound.
With deep soulful influences ranging from Bill Withers to Etta James, combined with the young sound of pop icons like Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber, the Lia Cole sound captivates audiences and stands completely on its own. Her intimate high quality online acoustic video releases will have you in awe with her musicality, and laughing along with her unapologetic behind the scenes bloopers. Representing St. Albert, AB worldwide, this award-winning young songwriter has become Canada’s up and coming act to watch. “
»When it comes to setting the bar high, Canadian r&b-pop artist Josh Sahunta never lets his feet touch the ground. The self-taught multi-instrumentalist and singer uniquely positions himself as a songwriter with substance. Josh celebrated the release of his debut full length album “Dissonance” in late October 2017 with two music video premieres and a sold out show at The Rec Room in his hometown of Edmonton, Alberta. Drawing upon his influences of John Mayer, Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd, Josh's songwriting is packed with deeply rich narratives and cool, contemporary soundscapes. Josh was recently nominated for two Edmonton Music Awards (Male Artist of the Year, and R&B/Soul Recording of the Year) and for a Western Canadian Music Award for «Urban Artist of the Year».
“Josh Sahunta is one of those creative prodigies who excels at absolutely everything he touches.” – BK On The Scene
