Makayla Lynn is a young country singer from Nova Scotia. Although young, she has shared the stage with artists like Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Serena Ryder, Rascal Flats, and Tim McGraw. In 2010, she recorded her debut album “I’ll Just Keep Being Me” at the age of nine. Fast forward to four years later, Makayla recorded her third album in Nashville, Tennessee.
The album entitled “Daydream” was released on May 20, 2014.

“Daydream” contains seven tracks and includes the lead single, “Don’t Quit Your Daydream.” Makayla had songwriting credits on six of the seven tracks. Although the lyrical writing was quite good, the thing that stood out the most on the record was Makayla’s vocals. The strong vocal capabilities are really demonstrated on the recordings. My favourite songs on the album are “Shakespeare Play” and “Don’t Quit Your Daydream.”

I recommend checking out the lead single “Don’t Quit Your Daydream” to get a taste of “Daydream.” If you enjoy it, definitely get the whole album.

Rating: 3.5/5

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.
