Charissa - I got my girls - Flyah Review


Charissa (pronounced KA-RISS-A) is a talented, up and coming 20 year old country artist from Burlington Ontario.  She is presently storming the trenches of the country music scene with her powerful dynamic voice and her coveted soulful vocal brand - garnering airplay on a myriad of terrestrial country radio stations .  Most recently her debut single I Got My Girls (W. Daniels/C. Pavlou - SOCAN) was picked up by CBC Country 171 on SiriusXM Canada where it remains in rotation.  
Charissa' distinctive voice has captured the attention of Canadian Country Music fans as well as her loyal local supporters who come out to watch this hard working emerging artist play at a variety of local venues.  
Charissa's journey as an artist began when she was 12 years old and catapulted from coffee house chanteuse to centre stage winning the Rising Star Competition at the Canadian National Exhibition.  As a 12 year old she won, her age group 6-12 and went on to qualify for the Top 18 trumping 13-21 year olds and also the adult contestants.  She won in the finals.  “When I heard the judges announce my name, I just cried, I couldn’t believe it,” said Charissa, a Grade 8 student at Florence Meares School. “It was the best experience of the year for me.”  Charissa put her $4,000 in winnings as the grand champion to good use and went shopping for a new guitar.
In addition to being an accomplished vocalist Charissa is a prolific songwriter.  She is actively recording her first solo project in Toronto with Brian Gagnon (early Shania Twain) - the producer of her debut single.  Charissa recently performed one of her new songs "Feel Good" live on the morning show with Craig Fox on Country 107.3 in Tillsonburg, Ontario.  It's a really catchy and upbeat Country/Pop tune co-written with Carrie DeMaeyer a prominent published songwriter from Milton, Ontario and it is sure to capture the attention of fans of "I Got My Girls"

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal.
