Toronto based pop rockers Ginger Ale & The Monowhales have collaborated on the revival of “A Place to Stand,” Ontario’s unofficial anthem in celebration of Ontario’s 150th anniversary as a province. Francophone artist hailing from Cornwall, Melanie Brulée collaborated on the new version, as well as recorded a French version of the tune. “The updated versions- English, French, and bilingual- are as lively and energetic as Ontario is today,” says Mary Ellen Beninger, a member of the Ontario 150 Secretariat. The original was released in 1967 and sold 50, 000 copies following its release.

I’ve been involved in music my whole life and have developed a passion for helping out or working in the industry any way I can. I’m interested in helping talented artists gain the recognition they deserve in this crazy business. I am currently studying Communication Studies at York University in Toronto, and working at a local theatre doing marketing and communications, as well as helping out a local festival called Rock the Coliseum. Indie, alt-rock/pop, and metal are my favourites but I’m open to all music genres! If I’m not at a show, I’m doing yoga, grabbing coffee, or looking for some craft beer.
