Brenda Burch

I have been following Brenda for quite sometime now through social media. She has an amazing voice that not only captured my attention but also made me want to listen to more of her music and I realized then that it was only fitting that I take a closer look at what she had to offer as an Indie Artist.  I read the post in facebook that said she had received the   for her work as an and I knew at that moment she is going to be featured in the magazine. Brenda has so much to offer and I can only hope and pray that people reading this article will feel the same as I do because we need more people like Brenda in our lives.

More about Brenda

Described throughout her career as the little girl with a big voice, Brenda Burch has captivated audiences in the United States, Europe and Asia with her energetic performances, rich Country vocal style and ability to connect with a crowd through the emotive story of a song. Sharing the stage with Darius Rucker, David Archuleta, Neal McCoy, Diamond Rio and Collin Raye, among many others, has given her the chance to convey tales of love, life, loss and strength in her music to thousands of concert-goers.

Her newest EP, Sparks Will Fly, not only sparked attention in the USA, but it caught fire in Europe resulting in a big win for Brenda at the Hotdisc Country Music Awards. The only artist to take home 2 awards, she was the winning recipient of the New Horizon Award for Most Successful International Newcomer and Best International Single for her title track, Sparks Will Fly. “I was blown away to win both awards,” said Brenda. “Overwhelmed is an understatement. I’m so grateful for my family, friends, fans and all the wonderful DJs playing my music!” To hear Brenda’s full acceptance speech, click here.

The award-winning EP is compiled of six compelling songs that range from a tongue-in-cheek spin on dating life (“Sparks Will Fly”) to following your heart (“No Better Time”) and having the courage to love what matters most (“Take Me Back”). Her first single, “Sparks Will Fly,” released to radio debuting at #1 in Europe and staying at #1 for 6 weeks straight. Her second single, “No Better Time,” quickly became a fan favorite, claiming the #1 spot on a Country music chart voted on by the fans. Brenda exclaimed, “I’m thrilled with the positive response and am humbled both singles have been so well-received by DJs and listeners around the world. Thank you!”

After a successful Kickstarter campaign where Brenda surpassed her initial goal at 125%, she joined forces with a talented production team in Nashville to co-write and produce a record that showcases her warm, powerful Country sound backed by rockin’ Country rhythms and relatable stories.

PETER GRAIGS

Born and raised in Montreal, Canada, recording artist and multi-instrumentalist PETER GRAIGS is a force to be reckoned with while on the fretboard of any guitar in his hands. Growing up in Canada and now re-located to Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, Peter Graigs grew up listening to the music that drove the ‘80’s: Rock, Progressive Rock, Hard Rock and Heavy Metal.

His musical heroes include iconic guitarists Randy Rhoads, Eric Clapton, Al Di Meola and legendary drummer Tommy Aldridge. Like many other rockers, he also listens to the occasional Classical piece for inspiration.

Peter Graigs has had years of live concert performance experience and recording sessions with such bands as Wired, Sillian, Trax, G13 Band and Scars of Grace. He immersed himself in music early on and expertly mastered playing guitar, bass and drums. Unfortunately his career in music had to take a back seat, as he was sidelined for a decade following a traumatic parachute accident.

Throughout his career, Peter Graigs has performed on television programs as well as live concerts throughout North America at prestigious venues such as Spectrum de Montreal (audience 2,500), Cote de Neige (audience 10,000) and Auditorium de Verdun (audience 15,000).

His new album “The Beginning of the End” is his latest creation and one which is not to be missed.

I have been following and listening to Codie’s music ever since I first did an article on him back in 2015 in one of my other online magazines. I spend a lot of time at my desk promoting artists through my network of Social Media and online magazines, so rather than listening to music on the radio I will play music from all the artists I feature. Codie’s music is by far one the most played from my playlist of songs to listen to.

If you haven’t listened to Codie’s music, I strongly recommend you check him out.
