VIRGINIA TO VEGAS


 

Virginia To Vegas is Derik Baker, the 24 year old wunderkind hailing from small-town Ontario. Raised on his parents record collection and cutting his teeth at a young age writing songs for a variety of pop artists, Derik was discovered by Canadian indie label Wax Records in 2013.
 
Upon releasing his debut single “We Are Stars ft Alyssa Reid” in January of 2014, Derik’s music instantly connected with fans across Canada, topping radio charts and becoming Gold certified in a mere 12 weeks. This whirlwind year has seen him travel the continent, shooting his music videos in Las Vegas and New York, sharing the arena stage with Alyssa Reid and Hedley, and performing on the 2014 MMVA’s. Following this early success with his debut EP Volume 1, his second single “Don’t Fight The Music” and his brand new track “Our Story”, Virginia To Vegas has arrived and is ready to shoot for the stars.

BUSTY AND THE BASS



Busty and the Bass have come a long way in a short time. The nine members of the band connected in their first week at McGill University’s jazz school in Montreal and started jamming. Casual house party gigs soon led to scorching live performances in front of thousands on stages across the U.S., Europe, and their home country of Canada. The group’s natural chemistry and an ability to create a sound that Complex says is “best described as a lovechild between jazz, hip-hop, and electro-soul" has been a major hit with audiences, bouncing along and chanting “Bus-ty!” in unified delight. Even R&B legend Macy Gray is a fan of Busty and the Bass, praising their soulful living room session cover of her hit song “I Try” as “beeyooteefoh”.
