One of these artist is singer/songwriter Brittney Grabill. She is a young up and coming musician hailing from Edmonton, Alberta.

Their radio friendly riffs, fast harmonies and quick melodies are sure to fill young iphones and ipods across the continent. Would I buy Impossible? Being that I’m in my thirties, it’s not quite my style. But if I was seventeen or I wanted to reminisce about being seventeen then I would probably buy it and dance in the living room at a friend’s house party with a girl I’m hoping to make out with and I would love every minute of it.

Vancouver based singer-songwriter, Hún
Hún (pronounced [huːn], as in hoon) is a singer-songwriter, composer, producer and multimedia artist of South Korean origin, born 1986 in Seoul. Currently based in Vancouver, Canada. Having spent childhood immersed in musical influences ranging from french impressionists, scandinavian and irish scenes, he became serious about music composition by the time he reached high school.
