“I’ve tried to touch on many genres, without totally subscribing to any of them,” says Hills. “It’s a pretty rootsy record, but I’m never satisfied with simply nodding my cap to tradition, nor am I preoccupied with colouring inside industry lines. It’s harmonically broad. The melodies and lyrics are subtle and simple. My goal as an artist, is to make a record that perfectly balances and blends all of my influences, into each song. Nature Girl is a big step in that direction. Listeners will hear a exploring songwriter, taking a deep look into the relationship between human nature and mother nature.”
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.
