Sheena Bailie was raised in a small city in Western Canada. Her passion for singing all started at the age of 13 when she co-wrote a song with a friend. From there on, she knew creating and writing music was very much a huge part her life.
At 13 Sheena began modeling and acting, and singing soon followed. “Being on stage gave me excitement and it was then that I knew that this was what I was meant to do. Performing and singing for me is where I felt most comfortable and most passionate.” At the age of 16 Sheena wrote and recorded her first song “Say.” From there she performed at many local events including a local Star Search where she placed in the top 10 earning a spot in the opening act for Reba McEntire.
Sheena went on to work with Capitol Records and producers Roy and Raphael Hamilton, as a result of this collaboration, the track “You Know You Want It” was created. Sheena has recently finished her debut album “This Is Me.” “I’ve never been happier or felt like it was a better time than now to show the world my music. I am very excited to release my first ever album and continue down the path within my singing career”.

James Colt first began exploring his musical career in 2010, in his basement with an Xbox microphone. A familiar story, James states: “I knew this was what I really wanted to do.”
His influences include Kanye West and Kid Cudi, who inspired him to start writing his own material. A fundamental stepping stone in his career was meeting Transit (a.k.a. Daniel Bennett), who has been mentoring James for a while now. He gained early traction with a remix of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s Can’t Hold Us, before ultimately recording almost two-dozen original tracks, which were then whittled down for release as his debut mixtape Genesis.
Stankowski has been working hard on his craft, filling his time with rehearsing, writing, recording and performing as much as possible.
Kyrsten Leigh is a 16-year-old singer/songwriter from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
She always had a passion for singing, but when the itch to write her own material arose, everything changed. Kyrsten continued to hone her craft as a country artist and her songwriting shifted into full gear when songs started pouring out onto napkins, paper scraps, and, on a good day, the pages of her songbooks (her iPhone voice memo app is her new best friend). She would play guitar with raw fingers, and write until every pen ran out of ink.
Following months of pushing herself to her limits, Kyrsten decided it was time to seek out a vocal coach. She found a great one in Emma Harding at Rockit Vocal Studios where she also met music industry mentor, Jolayne Motiuk.
“My songs were rising to a whole new level and my voice wasn’t quite meeting the expectations that they were bringing. It was like standing at a locked door that I was unable to open. Working with Emma gave me the key, and I was thrilled at how far my voice had come in just the first few weeks.”
