Shawn Hook’s EMI Music debut, Cosmonaut and the Girl, says a lot about the artist, his direction and the music. Blessed with a stratospheric vocal range, heard right off the bat on the lead track, “Planet Earth,” and particularly on “Rockstaria,” the pianist and guitarist from Nelson, British Columbia shot for the stars on this recording, adding modern electronic elements to his organic singer-songwriter base.the newks

Gordon James is an accomplished singer/songwriter who describes his style as urban country, easy listening, with a touch of the blues. His debut album, Heart of the Matter, continues to get airplay across Canada and overseas.

The Newks are a fresh new band in the Kelowna music scene that is quickly gaining a name for their powerful acoustic songs and catchy pop rock sound. Their youthful sound is powered by the vocals of Austin Axenty, an 18-year-old singer-songwriter who gained his passion for singing at a very young age.
