Genre: Cabaret-pop
Release Date: October 3, 2014

Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia comes singer-songwriter Laura Reznek. Laura Reznek released her first full-length “How Strange to Find You” last year. On October 3, 2014, Reznek will be releasing her second full-length release entitled “Who Came Before Us”. The release consists of ten tracks and includes the single “The Ones You Love.”

When initially listening to the album, I was intrigued with the unique sound created. The songs have elements of jazz, are primarily piano driven, and are well written. With each song, the instrumentals balance the vocals well. My favourite songs from Who Came Before Us are: “Apparition,” “Borrowed,” and “Be My City.”

I would highly recommend picking up the album.

Rating: 4.5/5

Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
