Without a doubt, Hedley, a popular pop rock band from Vancouver, is an inspiration to their fans for many reasons. Not only have the stories they have shared through songs have given their fans something to hold on to during the harder times that life brings along, but they have proven time and time again that they are more than willing to help give back in many ways. Be it performances at We Day shows, attending fundraisers for various causes, and most recently, helping a Me to We movement. They traveled to Ecuador to help a small, independent community build a much needed school. With donations from their friends, family, and fans, they set to work getting to know the community and helping them build a school. They immersed themselves in the indigenous way of life to learn what it is like for the locals on a daily basis.

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
