One More Girl is a pop-country duo from Maple Ridge, British Columbia. The duo is formed by sisters Britt and Carly McKillip. In 2009, they released their first album entitled “Big Sky.” One More Girl released their sophomore album entitled “The Hard Way” on December 8, 2014. The Hard Way features seven tracks including the singles “Love Like Mine” and “Drunk Heart.”
When listening to the album, it was difficult for me to not have it on repeat. The release was very well orchestrated. Although having a pop element, I would consider the release to be more country. The sisters’ vocals, lyrical content, and instrumentals tie in together nicely. The songs on The Hard Way that stood out the most for me were “Love Like Mine” and “You’re Not The One.”
If you have yet to hear One More Girl and are a fan of country music, I would highly recommend checking out the release. Prior to picking up the album, I would listen to “Love Like Mine” and “Drunk Heart” to get a taste of The Hard Way first.
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.
