From Dunville, Newfoundland, Amy Wilson is currently based in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Wilson is both a Music and English teacher and singer-songwriter. Her debut release entitled “On Repeat” was made available via iTunes on June 1, 2015. “On Repeat” earned the singer-songwriter a MusicNL nomination. Additionally, the album’s single “Never See Me Cry” made it into the Top 10 finalists for Newfoundland in the CBC Searchlight Competition.
I enjoyed listening to the album. The selected eight tracks for the album captivate Wilson’s voice well and is the aspect of “On Repeat” that stood out the most for me. In particular, the slower-tempo tracks like “An Old Man Once Said,” “Never See Me Cry,” and “Lying Here” are the best examples showing both emotion and talent. The stand-out tracks for me, however, were “On Repeat” and “The Things.” Although pop, the instrumentals do not overpower the vocals and are fun to sing to once knowing the lyrics.
I would recommend listening to “Never See Me Cry” and “On Repeat” to get a taste of the album. If you enjoy them, I would definitely pick up “On Repeat” by Amy Wilson via iTunes.
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.
