Like A Stone by Aka V / Powerful & Memorable Performance

Meet Aka V:

LA-based singer, songwriter, producer and sound engineer Aka V is back with her newest single, “Like A Stone”, a powerful and moving cover of this pop-rock ballad, originally by Audioslave.

Aka V is from the small town, Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. She headed to the big city of Toronto, pursuing her lifelong dream of becoming a musician. With a captivating look and impressive vocal ability, it didn’t take long for V to land her first gig as the lead singer in the Canadian rock band, OzGoode.

Her experience and journey on a cross-country tour with OzGoode inspired V’s debut single “Always Go Home”. This noteworthy release marked her entrance as a solo artist into the music industry in 2016.

Since then, she has released a continuous stream of singles, skillfully navigating her way to cultivating a unique and dynamic sound. Her latest release, “Like A Stone”, is an intense and impactful track that she has been playing live since touring as a solo artist.

“Like A Stone”:

An intense and thick textured soundscape of drums and electric guitar open “Like A Stone”. This captivating intro immediately engages the listener’s intrigue and attention.

V delivers a powerful performance that imparts a memorable impression on the listener. A feeling of darkness and anguish is imparted upon us, which is intensified by the powerful instrumental accompaniment leading to an epic guitar solo.

As an artist, V has an exceptional ability to communicate intense emotion. Through her mesmerising performance, we feel the pain and torment, just like an open wound, as she sings: “I’ll wait for you there, like a stone. I’ll wait for you there, alone”.

V really has made her own unique mark on this cover song, and if you enjoy music from artists such as The Pretty Reckless and Pink, then Aka V will fit perfectly on your pop/rock playlist.

“Believe It’s Your Time” – Nick Brodeur / Igniting Hope And Belief

Meet Nick Brodeur:

With an impressive look that and unique sound, that carries hints of Maroon 5 blended with Lenny Kravitz, this budding singer-songwriter is making some serious waves.

Nick Brodeur has been a music enthusiast since he first picked up a guitar at 6 years old. His Dad would play Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Guns N’ Roses, and little Brodeur loved the way the guitar sounded.

Brodeur has just released his newest single “Believe It’s Your Time”, in collaboration with the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the charity to support their efforts.

The organization aims to help people with addiction. As well as people who have lost their loved ones to the disease. Their goal is to provide support to inner city youths. So each child has the opportunity to reach their full potential and achieve their dreams.

Brodeur told us: “This song was really important for me to write, the track is just meant as a reminder, to whoever may need it, that if you believe in yourself and you work hard, you can overcome your depression, or addiction, or get through any hard time.”

“Believe It’s Your Time”:

As the song opens an emotive tune plays on an electric guitar creating an engaging and intriguing atmosphere.

As Brodeur begins to sing, with his irresistible raspy, rock-style voice, we are completely captivated. He expresses deep emotion through his charismatic vocals and emotive lyrics, such as: “My home opens up my mind, I’m no longer deaf or blind, I see every glimpse of shame, that my heart never seems to take”.

A jaw-dropping guitar riff is delivered by Brodeur, which would inspire any wannabe guitarist. In the music video, this instrumental solo is performed in the pouring rain. It’s a fantastically powerful image, complementing his powerful performance.

“Believe It’s Your Time” imparts a serious impression on the listener. When Brodeur whispers into the mic, “believe that it’s your time”, it invokes immense emotion within the listener. Along with the belief that there is sunshine after the storm. That things do get better, especially if you believe.

Brodeur’s performance in this song will charm any listener and if you enjoy music from artists such as Jason Mraz and Ed Sheeran, then Nick Brodeur will fit perfectly on your pop-rock playlist.
