Nicole “The Songbird” Coward is an alternative-folk singer/songwriter hailing from Toronto, Ontario. On August 24, 2014, she released her second album, an EP, entitled “Strong Enough For Love.” The album contains six tracks and is available through iTunes now.
After seeing that she has been compared to Joni Mitchell, I was looking forward to listening to Nicole’s album. Upon hearing Strong Enough For Love for the first time, I can definitely agree with the comparison.
The album shows off Nicole’s voice. An unique aspect of the album are the varying instruments utilized within the recording! I thought it was really cool that Nicole played the french horn. My favourite songs on Strong Enough For Love are: “Night-time Sunshine” and “Beautiful Flower.”
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.
