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"

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
