Release Date: May 20, 2016
Vernon’s Olivia has recently released her debut EP entitled Weightless through iTunes. The album contains six tracks including the single “Outshine the Stars.”
Upon hearing that the EP was a pop album, I was not sure what I should be expecting from the release. When pinpointing a genre, there is an expectation that it would be similar to what has been released before. Olivia manages to transition away from the “typical pop sound” you hear in the Top 40 radio stations to establishing her own voice in the genre. Lyrically, there are messages regarding self-empowerment. The choruses are catchy and memorable. From the first track, “Weightless,” to the last, “Without You,” the singer is able to deliver six continuous good songs that easily grab pop fans’ attention.
Although the record is her debut, it contends with those already established in the pop scene. Olivia is a singer that you should be watching out for. I would highly recommend picking up a copy of Weightless on iTunes now.
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.
