Carly Taylor
Carly Taylor
My name is Carly Taylor and I was born in 1994 and grew up in Burlington, Ontario where I found my passion for singing at a very young age. As a child, my favourite singer was Celine Dion and listening to her music inspired me to follow my dreams.

I sang on stage for the first time during a kid's karaoke concert at a local vacation resort and soon began to develop my new passion. By age 9 I was performing publicly as often as possible, feeding from inspirations like Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and Kelly Clarkson.

Although I enjoy singing a variety of different genres, it wasn't until I discovered country music that I knew I wanted to pursue my singing as a serious future career. In 2006 I entered my first talent competition, singing my own rendition of Celine Dion's "When You Look at Me" and making it to the finals in the Western Fall Fair. Also in 2006 and again in 2007 I performed at the annual Blues in the Park festival in Niagara falls with blues singer Steve Burnside and the Marquis band. Following these experiences, I expanded my horizons and joined a number of singing competitions in 2007, earning first place awards for performances in The Ontario Country Open Contest (under 12), Burlington Idol Youth competition, and the Milton Steam Era Festival's Junior Talent Contest.

This year has been one of the most exciting yet! In early 2010, I released my first single, I Know I Love You (But I Don't Know Why) and it sat at #81 on the Canadian Country Music Charts! After the positive feedback from the first single, I released my second single, Go Back, which hit the charts at #58 in the month of May. I am excited to say that I have been signed by Blue Sapphire/Universal Music and I have recently released my self-titled debut album. I am working with such an amazing team right now and we have big plans for the upcoming year! We will be recording my second album during the summer months and it is set to be released in the spring of 2011!

Zabeth Dkos
Zabeth Dkos
When you get hit by the song "Dirtier Than Sin", you know it's going to leave a mark. Edgy storytelling, contagious melodies and driving grooves are merely the tip of the iceberg when it comes to defining Zalbeth Dkos. A self-styled songstress, Zabeth has been writing and producing her own material for the performances both live and on record are striking and memorable.

Zabeth started her career in the dance music genre and worked with the Groove Club. Yakoo Boyz, MuchMusic's Jetfuel (Electric Circus) and producer Matthew Gerrard (Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavigne, Hillary Duff). "Working in the dance music genre was how I got introduced to drum machines and sequencing which eventually led to fully producing all of my own stuff." With an undying loyalty to groove, Zabeth began to combine hip-hop drumloops with edgy guitar and piano, bringing about an innovative and distinctive style.

While she vocally produces a sound that evokes images of popular stars such as Gwen Stefani, Alanis Morissette and Kate Bush, she remains uniquely individual in her lyrical style, personality and image. With what is described as a "natural and powerful stage presence". Zabeth entertains and delivers with an energy and emotion that few artists are comfortable parting with.

Her debut CD Unsigned Undefined Unapologetic' has been warming up in the cage for a while now...

Expect to get hit.

White Cowbell Oklahoma
White Cowbell Oklahoma
Wildly popular in the Toronto area and meriting a small global fan base, the 17 members of White Cowbell Oklahoma have made their stage shows bizarre and outrageous. With some nine guitar players, four female backup singers, and a lead singer resembling Colonel Sanders, the band has recorded and demoed several songs. They've also played the North by Northeast Festival, as well as Canadian Music Week. In 2001, the band released a five-song EP. The band plays a Southern fried boogie blend of rock.

Behold, the tireless heavy-rock armada that is White Cowbell Oklahoma now bring their live assault directly to you via VIVA LIVE LOCOS: ALIVE AT THE BURG HERZBERG FESTIVAL!

WCO's studio albums - Cencerro Blanco (2005), Casa Diablo (2007) and the especially adventurous Bombardero (2009) - have all been critically-acclaimed affairs worldwide. Many, however, argue it is the band's incredibly over-the-top live show that defines White Cowbell Oklahoma. Fire, chainsaws and dancing maidens aside, others add that WCO have grown into an extremely dynamic, virtuosic musical outfit. Thus, the band's 70s-infused live show - which owes as much visually to KISS, The Tubes and Alice Cooper as it does musically to ZZ Top, Deep Purple and The Allman Brothers - has become a jaw-dropping spectacle to behold.

The roots of White Cowbell Oklahoma's precarious balancing act lie in their initial tours of Europe. In July 2006, the band headlined the first night of the annual Burg Herzberg Festival -- one of Europe's biggest and most prestigious jam fests. The performance was expertly recorded and later broadcast on German national TV to much fanfare. WCO's set featured many lesser-played songs from their canon, with many cuts stretched close to the 10-minute mark. Burg Herzberg was not only a unique show, it marked a turning point for the band forever.

In September 2010, White Cowbell Oklahoma acquired the Burg Herzberg tracks for remix. The result is the explosive Viva Live Locos: Alive At The Burg Herzberg Festival. Finally, the live White Cowbell Oklahoma experience can be taken home (at least, to the degree any sane person would desire).

And this album truly is live -- no extra overdubbing was added. From heavy steamrollers "Cheerleader" and "Faster Than Sin" to southern-boogie jamfests "Shot A Gamblin' Man," "Ole Glory" and "Do Me So Wrong," you get the nine-man, four-guitar warfare as it went down. Two previously unrecorded covers - Frank Zappa's "Magic Fingers" and Willie Dixon's "I Just Want To Make Love To You" also figure into the set. Look for additional bonus tracks on vinyl and iTunes soon. VIVA LIVE LOCOS!

In 1970 I first learned how to play blues harp and a year later switched over to acoustic guitar. My style evolved from 12 bar blues, to folk, country, pop and rock.

In 1983 I did my first studio recording at Nova Sound with Dave Neal and Martin Aucoin and crew. In August of 2010, Martin and I met up again at Studio 92 and we have since co-written a song called “Feel It” which we have submitted to a prominent artist. Martin played keys at my C.D. release on November 30,2010 at Hugh’s Room. I have since performed at The Rockpile on April 14,2011. Dave Neal and I go back thirty plus years and plays lead guitar on “Daughter Of Moonlight” and “Only A Fool” on my C.D, “Minor Details”. He also does back-up vocals on most of the tracks with his crew from L.A. I tracked him down from his parents in Cornerbrook, Newfoundland, and he turned me on to Greg Critchley (Clay Aiken) for drums. I have really enjoyed getting to know Greg over the years during this project. Greg and Steve both played in the Larry Gowan band back in the eighties. I firmly believe that these are no coincidences with all the people that came together on my CD.

In 1986, Clark Miller (EMI publishing NY) introduced me to Steve Shelski (Coney Hatch), Alex Matchin (A Foot In Cold Water) and Rick Lamb.(Cinema Face/Copper Penny) We ended up recording two songs in a 16 track studio with Colette Baron on back–up vocals and Frank Watt producing and doubling up on drums. Colette sang several of my demos after that, and one song, “Mother Earth”, I decided to record on this C.D. Colette is a great artist in her own right and also a gifted psychic and healer. By 1990, one of the two songs recorded at Mysonics, with Alex on vocals, was “Try Real Hard”, and that song won me a factor “New Talent Demo” award, and with the 25 hours of free studio time, we went to Sounds Interchange to record “Suspicious Heart” and “Free Spirit”. Rick had re– arranged, co–written, performed keys and sang on “Suspicious Heart”, and that song got us on the 1993 “Q 107 Homegrown” album, with Steve on guitar. Rick had introduced me to Al Staniforth (Lighthouse) in 1988, and we co-wrote a country song called “Don’t Walk On By”. I had also co–written a cross–over country song, “Hold On To Me”, with Katalin Nagymarosi, and Larry Mercey gave us a publishing deal in 1992 I have also worked with Liz Lausanne on vocals, as well as Darlene Watters. (“Hold On”).

Rick and I had a winning writing formula, whereby we co–wrote a song and then got Steve Shelski to fine–tune the material before it was recorded as a demo. Rick and I also used that formula with Rusty McCarthy (Mary Margaret O’Hara Band) and later with Paul Naumann (A Foot In Cold Water). I also wrote one song with Chris Brockway, (Pepper Tree/Rik Emmett) called “Let Me In Your Life”.

In the early ninties I hooked up with Doug Billard to co-write. (former lead singer of Lighthouse in 1973 and played in the band Pepper Tree at a different time than Chris) Doug and I co–wrote three songs on my CD. (“Daughter Of Moonlight”/“Take Me Away”/“Fallen Angel”) We started writing again in 2005 after a little layoff,and last June, 2010, we wrote a country song called “Innocent Love”, with a very young and talented Augusta Campoli covering the song.

On this CD, “Minor Details”, you’ve got Don Hart (Robbie Lane and the Disciples) on bass and Joe Agnello (David Wilcox/Morgan Davis) plays bass on one track, “Misery”. The “Fallen Angel” bass track was done by Gene Falbo (Sylvia Tyson) which was my recent single, recorded at Metalworks in November of 2010.

You can hear Vern Dorge (Blood Sweat and Tears) playing wooden flute on “Mother Earth” and “I Am An Eagle”. Vern makes his own flutes. Caitriona Murphy (Amy Sky) plays cello on “Bombs Over Baghdad” and violin on “Just A Human Being”. Robert Fenton (Heather Morgan) does a dobro track on “Take Me Away”. As well as Steve Shelski on keys, John Lee (Mel Brown) plays on “Daughter Of Moonlight” and “My Sweet Angel”.

And what can I say about Steve. Not only did he offer to help me out on this project with his busy schedule, but has been instrumental with his contribution on guitars, dobro, keys and mandolin, as well as engineering and producing. He was very patient with me, producing my vocals. Sascha Tukasch (Platinum Blonde) also plays percussion on “Daughter Of Moonlight” and drums on “Fallen Angel”.

And Finally Wayne Brauer does a fine job doing the mastering on all the tracks, as well as mixing “Fallen Angel”. Wayne is also fixing up my video, “I Am An Angel”, putting in all new stock footage and editing everything over again, and shooting some new scenes.

I have a “you tube” song that I wrote about the environment called “Is Anybody Listening?”, and released after the BP oil spill on July 1,2010, with Kevin Laurette on vocals, who has also done the artwork on my CD cover. Back in 1996, he sang nine of my demos, including this song.

I am in the process of recording my second CD with new producer and friend, Ryan Blake, guitarist from the band Riding Shotgun. The new CD will be released in the summer of 2012.

My environmental views are revealed on the song “Mother Earth”. I have always believed that the planet is a living organism, and as long as we put economy ahead of ecology, we are doomed as a species. Unfortunately we rely too much on oil and coal, which pollutes more than anything else. Our survival depends on further exploring renewable resources, like wind and solar energy.

I will be forever grateful to Rick Lamb’s encouragement to become the singer and artist that I have evolved into and the two decades of close friendship that I had with him. God bless you bro!

Love and Peace to all, John Watson
Scotty Newlands
Scotty Newlands
The pop music world has a "new" powerhouse who's ready to take the mic!

Scotty's extensive tenor and counter tenor vocal range puts him is a class aside from most male singers. From his early days in school choirs, and University ensembles where he honed his vocal and theatrical skills, to present day where stage and studio are the primary focus, Scotty excels in all aspects of his performance attributes.

When he's not on set, on stage, or in studio, Scotty is busy writing, collaborating and serving - but he won't be visiting your dinner table anytime soon...

Combining his love of performance with a desire to serve, Scotty enlisted into the Canadian Army Reserve in 2002. He began his military career as a musician and later - took his commission to become an officer. He currently serves as a Public Affairs representative and featured anthemnist for many high-profile events.

In the fall of 2004, Scotty teamed up with classically-trained pianist and producer Richard Uglow at Studio 92 in Toronto to begin working on his original material. Uglow's music and ideas complimented Scotty's personal style of writing and vocal expression. Because of Scotty's background with basic audio engineering, both he and Uglow were able to work as a team to figure out the best possible sound for the different projects they worked on together. Upon completion of his initial demo project with Uglow entitled: "NO VACANCY", Scotty turned his sights and efforts towards recording a full-length album.

"NEW ROADS", was recorded in-between concert venues and acting performances. Working with Toronto-based producer Brent Bodrug, Scotty put his years of writing and external inspiration into a record that demonstrated his vast range and. His aim was to give something back to the people who have supported him throughout all of his aspirations by providing his family, friends, and many supporters with a style and sound that everyone could enjoy. The album was officially released in February of 2009 at a private party.

In the spring of 2009, Scotty signed an international distribution deal with IndiePool for both retail and digital sales. Shortly after this, he signed a licensing agreement with Nightingale Music to expose "NEW ROADS" to the world of film, tv and radio placement.

In May of 2010, through writers Les Kotzer and Lewis Manne, Scotty was introduced to Juno Award winning producer Greg Kavanagh (BKS, David Foster, Aretha Franklin, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt) to record vocals for his tribute single "These Are Our Heroes". A musical relationship was forged between them both, and since then, Scotty has been busy with Greg - creating new music and developing a new sound to complement his vast performance style. With more than 25 years in the industry, multiple major label deals and recording contracts under his belt, Greg's reputation speaks for itself. His noteriety, achievement and industry recognition is unquestionable and he is the perfect fit for Scotty. Together, they are creating an exciting new musical vision which will suit Scotty's sound and help him to compete in today's cut-throat music scene.

December 2011 marked a new chapter in Scotty's life when he joined the artist roster for Current Management. Under the guise and watchful eye of Juno Award winning veteran manager and rock icon Gerry Young (The Parachute Club, Martha and the Muffins, Frank D'Angelo, George Casey) Scotty set off on an exciting new path and has since - successfully released his latest singles to nationwide AC radio stations. The musical relationship between Scotty, Greg and Gerry has proven to be a winning combination of musical talent, production and marketing in order to execute a series of successful campaigns and establish a solid foothold as they move forward towards the future.

In May 2012, Scotty signed a distribution deal with Blue Sapphire/ DEP Universal for the release of his new album. This marks Scotty's first release with major label representation.

Scotty is frequently asked to sing the national anthem because of the power, conviciton and authenticity in which he sings it. He has been requested to perform personally by various major league sporting associations in Toronto, including the Maple Leafs, Marlies, Argos, Blue Jays, Raptors, Rock, Toronto FC, Steelback Grand Prix, Honda Grand Prix and was personally requested by the NHL to perform at the 2009 Winter Classic in Chicago.

Scotty performs at a variety of events - both corporate and private functions and often lends his talents to a variety of charity organizations, including: Wheelchair Hockey, The United Way, Veteran's Associations, social groups and various community organizations and benefits. For more details, visit the Services page.

Scotty continues to write and perform music that is a true expression of himself - and to pay homage to the many artists from which he derives his creative inspiration.

The best is yet to come...
