Christina Martin is a singer-songwriter from Halifax, Nova Scotia. On February 24, 2015, Martin will be releasing her fifth studio album entitled It’ll Be Alright. The release contains ten songs including the lead single “It’ll Be Alright.”
After listening to the album, my initial thoughts were “How did I not listen to her before?!” It’ll Be Alright is a great introduction to Christina Martin’s material. The singer’s vocals and the instrumentals complement each other nicely, as does the lyrical content itself. The album can easily be played from start to finish without feeling the need/want to skip tracks. Overall, it is a solid release.
While highly enjoying the album in its entirety, my favourite songs on It’ll Be Alright are “Reaching Out,” “I’ve Got a Gun,” and “You Ran From Me.” I recommend picking up a copy on iTunes now. It is definitely worth the listen.
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.
