Recently, my pal Wallygator emailed me and asked me what I knew about the Canadian music scene, um, correction "Canadian Hard Rock and Metal" scene.
Now before I answer this, to my neighbors North of the boarder, I'm sorry for what I'm about to say. The only thing I really knew about Canadian music was Rush, that chick Celine Dion, Loverboy and NickelBack (don't judge me). Oh, and I know that Canadians rule Hockey, and their bacon is the BOMB! Honestly, Canada wasn't what I thought of when I thought of hard rock or heavy metal music.
She is Canada's version of Lita Ford. The only difference is she isn't blonde. But the fire and passion for the music is there. Aaron is a captivating singer. She's been singing since the age of 5 and started singing professionally at the age of 17.
'Tough Girls Don't Cry' is your typical don't hold me back and don't tread on me because I'm a girl anthem. It reminded me of the group Vixen and when I first heard them. They captivated and amazed me, they played, and played well. This was a song I played twice, the second time because, we'll, I just liked it. Also like the song 'Rock Candy'. It had a good beat to it, and it was a song I could see making my daily play list. 'Gotta Thing For You' was another song I could see on rotation daily. There WASN'T one song I didn't like. I guess I have been sleeping and I am now awakened.
Yes, I have to say this Canadian takeover was a success, and started me on a new quest to find out more about my Canadian Brothers and Sisters that ROCK!!
