He has worked with artists such as Christopher Young for the Sony’s Ghost Rider film score, KMFDM, Jack Off Jill, and members of Madonna and Prong to name a few. Ivan’s love of metal and world percussion led him to form a band that incorporated both styles and Healer was born. Middle-eastern melodies and edgy riffs are combined, creating a listening experience that is rich in quality and beautiful in sound. Healer’s debut album, “Awakening” was recorded and mixed at Burningsound and Ivan also produced and engineered the album. Healer has toured on the Vans Warped Tour and played the Coachella Valley Music Festival in Southern California. The avant garde performance troupe, Lucent Dossier, features music from “Awakening” in performances around the world.

The show came to a close in February 2011 due to budget cuts which actually lead to KUFO going off the air altogether in March 2011. Ivan had carte blanche over his playlist and regularly interviewed metal artists so the listener can stay informed about the scene.

Valitar’s World Premiere was November 16, 2012 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

“A Rose by any other name would smell as sweet…” said Juliet, in Shakespeare’s famous play, Romeo and Juliet. The question is, would they sound as sweet as THIS Rose? Part down-home country girl, part sophisticated musical veteran and “Redneck Diva,” Amy Rose has already earned a reputation for being one of Ontario, Canada’s best-known secrets. From her early years on small-town fair and festival stages, to her recent radio airplay, charting and awards, this Rose with the soaring vocal range and pop country sensibilities is on a journey to the world stage and beyond…THIS is the beginning!

Amy’s first three singles from her forthcoming third album, “I Just Want You To Know,” “(Redneck Reunion) Party Like A Redneck” and “Sunshine” all achieved international airplay on more than 300 stations, worldwide. In April 2013, “I Just Want You To Know” reached #9 on the New Music Weekly country chart, while “Party” eclipsed that mark reaching #6 in September 2013, with “Sunshine” topping the NMW chart at #1 in February 2014. The video for “Party” also received more than 400,000 youtube views, while earning a spot on the Y’allwire Top 25 Most Viewed videos chart; “Sunshine” reached #8 on the same chart. “Party” also reached #1 on the Indie World Country Record Report, the world’s first and longest running indie country chart. All 3 singles received Music Row chart action, with “I Just Want You To Know” peaking at #85. In the meantime, Amy received a 2013 Ontario Country Music Association award nomination for Rising Star, three nominations and one award win in the 2013 Independent Country Music Association awards, and 4 nominations in the 2013 International Music and Entertainment Association awards, for which she won Country Entertainer of the Year. In January of 2014, Amy was nominated for 2 Nashville Universe Awards, winning Best Music Video “Party Like A Redneck,” and, in February 2014, she received a nomination for Breakthrough Country Artist in the New Music Awards. Amy was also honored with a Barrie Cultural Grant. A win in the Sepoy Saloon Showdown led to an August 2013 opening slot for Big & Rich, in front of 15,000 people, at the Music In The Fields festival.

Next up is the release of her 4th single, “Country Crazy.” Slotted for April 7th release, the uptempo companion piece to “Party Like A Redneck” promises to be Amy’s biggest hit to date. The track features some of the best players in the business, including co-producer, Marty Beecroft, Acoustic Guitar, BG Vocals; Mark Prentice, Bass (Michelle Wright, Joe Diffie;) Shane Guse, Fiddle (Western Swing Authority;) Charlie Morgan, Drums (Elton John, Kate Bush;) Michael Severs, Electric Guitars (Dolly Parton, Eric Church;) and Stacey Lee Guse (BG Vocals.)

Amy Rose grew up in Barrie, Ontario, Canada, where she began her singing career at the age of 5. Her first public performance was in a singing contest at the Barrie Promenade Days, a local fair. A series of singing competitions followed, including her most memorable early moment: “It was at the Kinmount Fair,” Amy recalls. “I had been the winner for the previous three years, when I was lucky enough to meet one of my local heroes, Jason McCoy (2001 CCMA Best Male Artist.)” It was also during this period that Amy was trained in, and mastered the art of yodeling, earning her the respect of Ontario’s country music community.

Amy’s first album, One Special Girl, was released independently, when she was 13. On the strength of this album, she landed a spot on Dorian Baxter’s Gospelenium Tour, opening for Joni and Cathy Twitty, the daughters of her then-idol, Conway Twitty. Other openers for The Wilkinsons, Emerson Drive and High Valley followed. Her 2nd album, The Last of the True Believers, was released in 2001, receiving airplay, and earning her the reputation as one of Canada’s best young female artists. A brief hiatus from recording gave Amy the opportunity to raise a family with her husband; passing along the strong values that have always been an important part of her life. During this period, she continued to inspire live audiences by performing for fundraisers and promotional events, including those for Opry Orillia, Opry North, Penetangueshene Centennial Museum, and other Midland events. But, Nashville began to whisper in this “Redneck Diva’s” ear…

In the Summer of 2010, Amy began working with After Tuesday Productions, best known for their recent #1 iTunes album by Derek James Tilley. Earning Amy comparisons to contemporaries like Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson, “I Just Want You To Know,” “(Redneck Reunion) Party Like A Redneck,” and “Sunshine” are just a preview of what lies ahead for this burgeoning vocal superstar. Remember, this is only the beginning…

Marshall Dane’s infectious blend of country and rock is set to blaze a trail in 2014. Country by definition, but fueled by rock and roll and infected with a watermelon-sized helping of hope, love and salvation, Marshall’s the kind of guy you want to have on your side when the going gets tough in this world and his new album, One Of These Days is set to be your alibi.

Launched in May 2013, in time for last year’s CMAO Awards – for which he was nominated in several categories including Male Artist and Album Of The Year – and featuring the single and title track, “One Of These Days”, Canadian Country Artist Marshall Dane’s latest album puts life back in to the swing of things, driven by a swirling blast of fabulous melodies that gives you a country rush right from the get-go.

“One Of These Days is about how I deal with the curves life throws,” says Marshall. “It’s not really about where I’ve been but more so about where I am now…where I wanna go…and how I’m gonna get there, wherever ‘there’ is.“

One of These Days has country in its veins, topped up with doses of rock, pop and a side helping of soul. Recorded in London, Ontario in June of 2012, One Of These Days is the follow-up to Marshall’s successful Running Stop Signs, released in 2010. This latest collection is never far away from a radio-friendly corner, whether it’s the thrill of “Living It Up” or the reflective energy of “How Do I Get There From Her,” or the rollicking new single, “Alcohol Abuse,” set for February 2014 release in the US and worldwide.

Born in Southern Ontario, Marshall grazed on a rich fix of music, from the country sounds of his preacher dad – “He first taught me how to play “The Farmer’s Song” on guitar” – through his mum – in his own words the strongest, toughest, hardest working woman he’s ever met – who played piano in the evenings to his four sisters and two brothers and through his own musical discoveries from John Denver to Michael Jackson – “Thriller was the first album I bought, on cassette!”

Playing in bars and clubs as a solo singer and with a touring band – has given him his fair share of stories and insights – great for writing songs. He has opened for Alan Jackson and Emerson Drive, played at the 2011 CCMA Awards and toured on his own. On days off however, he prefers to spend his time out of the bar – in the gym, on his motorcycle, practicing yoga or at home in his apartment “cooking up something scrumptious.” But when it comes to cooking up a tune, Marshall admits there is one source of soul-nourishment that keeps on giving:

“More and more I find the influences of my parents’ spiritual upbringing permeating my writing. Mostly the positive stuff like hope, and love, and kindness….you know – the fruitages of the spirit. “

It is that sentiment that has led Marshall to give back to causes nearest to his heart: Stop A Bully fundraisers, Breast Cancer Awareness, Juvenile diabetes research, and Children's Make A Wish foundation, as well as helping with ALS research.

Marshall Dane has been slowly bubbling up to this moment. With “Alcohol Abuse” set for release, 2014 promises to be the Year Of The Dane.

“His sound is so huge, it seems like it is everywhere and is as much coming to him as from him. He appears to be drawing in the sound while drawing in the listener.” A quote from former manager George Grauer, and a great description of the musical attitude that encompasses the debut release from singer/songwriter Jiggley Jones.

Now under the professional direction of MTS Management Group and Michael Stover, who says “ Jiggley has that one-of-a-kind sound that I look for in an artist. His songs will touch you and move you with their beautiful lyrics and melodic strength.”

Now let’s not let the word “debut” fool you though. Just like the title of this 4 song EP, “No Spring Chicken”, Jiggley himself has lived. “Lets face it, I’m not 18 anymore and thank God for that”, says Jones. “I’m no longer coming from a place that I have to in order to fit in, I’m coming from a place that is different because that is what I’ve become. No tattoos, no piercings, just music, strong and true, music that paints a picture.”

However you want to look at this picture, whether it’s Americana, Wide Open Country, or acoustic whatever, this artist represents life, hope, and human nature as only a seasoned person can see it. The Top 5 Roots Music Report release (#3, Americana/Roots Country, #3 True Country) starting with the overwhelming strength of “Baby Blue”, a deep celebration of a new born life, to “Welcome Home” (#1 CMG Americana chart) with it’s ability to remind you how comforting the idea of home can be, to track three, a fun hillbilly party called “Ain’t That Alright’” (CMG chart, #26), “No Spring Chicken” covers enough variety (the spice of life) to remind you of bands like The Beatles. The final track really takes variety to the next level, being an early Christmas release called “Christmas 365”. This song is full of holiday reminders and touches on the idea that if Christmas was all year round then would it lose it’s special place in one’s heart. On the other hand, if we treated everyday like Christmas would life be a better experience all around.

Jones, whether alone or a member of various bands in the past has written or co-written well over 100 songs. His prolific writing earned him 2 nominations and a subsequent win, for Songwriter of the Year, at the 2013 International Music and Entertainment Association (IMEA) Awards, and 2 New Music Awards nominations (AC New Artist and AC Breakthrough Artist.) His experience has taken him through various phases and musical endeavors including a stint during his younger years working in entertainment public relations in Los Angeles. With some success on college radio, Jones was also, as a member of a band called “Q”, involved with soundtrack projects on select MTV shows such as The Dennis Rodman Show, Cindy Crawford’s “House of Style”, and the reality show Road Rules. His band was also used in the AON Films movie “Tainted Love”, directed by Mathew Ross. All these successes were accomplished while under the professional direction of industry representatives like N.O. Management based in London, England as well as Magic Music Management and Peter Baron Productions in New York.

More currently he has worked with Nashville producer Terry Wendt, a former bandleader for Shania Twain. For this new release though, he has teamed up with LA based producer Chris Tristram. His live shows have taken him to Nashville and this year’s CMA Festival where he performed at BB King’s Blues Club, as well as other top notch venues such as The Hard Rock Café in Philly, The Bitter End in NYC, and The World Café in Wilmington, Delaware. Jiggley is signed with Lamon Records Nashville.

To say that Andy Ross is a jack of all trades would be an understatement. Besides being the star of Maximum Archery (Sportsman), Ross also writes his own music. The Nashville native has been around singers and songwriters all of his life, and when he needed a unique opener for his show’s fifth season back in 2010, he decided to write one himself (“Three Legged Dog”). Through immense popularity amongst fans, he released his first full-length album “You Ain’t Seen Crazy Yet” in 2011, and a follow-up, “Cold Dead Hand” in 2013. Ross has co-written many of his songs and has worked with some of those who have written for the greats, including Templeton Thompson (Reba McEntire, Montgomery Gentry). The actor-turned-musician has a certain feel to many of his songs, one of country wit and unabashed American pride. Songs like “Rebel” and “Country Girls Got Game” showcase multiple sides of Ross’ personality, both the more attitude driven and the fun-loving side. Ross doesn’t shy away from the big topics, like his own struggles (“Outlaw Women and Whiskey”) or problems in the music industry (“Deal With The Devil”). You can be sure that you’ll always get a dose of hard-tested truth and brutal honesty from Andy Ross.
