- Keegan Chambers
When forced to choose between continuing with Irish dance or private vocal lessons, 10 year old Keegan Chambers chose the latter. She continued entering competitions and traveling with the York Region Children’s Chorus until age 14, when after-school activities were replaced with part-time jobs and the study of languages. After graduating from Wilfrid Laurier University, Keegan’s return to music was sparked by a sudden desire to write. As her notebook filled with lyrics, her voice memos filled with melodies, and after collaborating with instrument-playing friends, she watched her songs come to life. Since then, Keegan has worked to release her music - slowly but surely. In 2019, she debuted her first single; a bluesy jam track called “Loving You”, along with a self-directed music video, followed by an acoustic EP titled: Live Off The Floor. Pre-covid, she was packing iconic Toronto venues, playing many of the indie alternative rock songs she’s been recording in quarantine. As phase three opened up in the city, she jumped on the opportunity to shoot a music video for one of those very songs. The single, “Not Waiting”, is set to be released with a follow up EP - the production style of which Chambers’ says is a truer reflection of her sound moving forward.

Another good one, although obviously more poppy. There's a definite late 70s vibe to everything, largely because of the string arrangement. (Real disco c. 1979). I'd consider using this as a B-side or bonus rather than a single because of its retro feel. Then again, this might work well in territories other than North America. I could hear this on BBC 6 Music or on radio in France. You might be able to extend your international reach with this one.
This is good. We desperately need more female-fronted rock these days. Here's what I need: Send me a high-quality MP3 or WAV file to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see what I can do about getting you a feature play on The Edge. Deal? Oh, and I also need a three-line bio. I don't recognize the studio. Where was this done?
First, I love the video. Very stylish. As for the music, this is right now the same lane as some symphonic metal as well as Evanescense. Well done! No notes from me on songwriting, performance, or production. The trick now is to rise above the noise to get heard. That means working your social networks hard to turn all early fans into evangelists. And these days, that also includes TikTok. I'd carve out 30 seconds for use on that platform. Get enough organic growth and labels will start paying attention. If radio airplay is in the cards, then you need a good publicist/plugger to get this in the ears of program and music directors. Tell you what: Send me a high-quality MP3 and a quick bio and I'll get you a feature play on 102.1 the Edge. Deal? Use email@example.com
