LOZEN is no stranger to the industry. She has a knack for making stardom look easy. Headlining at Music Festivals. Check. Radio Show Host and Selectress. Check. Achieving elite status as a Freestyle Emcee. Check. One of the reasons you can’t take your eyes off her is your ears. LOZEN remains a bankable star who grabs your attention. She’s positive proof that the industry doesn’t need to be resurrected; it just needs a woman’s touch every now and then.
Last year alone, she was showcased on various Television/Radio Networks including CBC, Shaw and Mountain.fm just to name a few. Most recently, LOZEN announced signing a distribution deal with Urbnet Records in conjunction with her newest solo album release, Tragedy & Triumph Mixtape.
Among other projects, LOZEN is currently working on a collaboration EP with fellow Canadian Hip Hop heavyweights, Animal Nation. Though no official dates have been announced, the EP is projected to be released sometime in the Spring followed by a West Coast Canadian tour.
LOZEN has also recently teamed up with the Basement Freaks & Bombastic Jam Records. With the ever evolving sound of electronic music, it seems a new style has emerged and dubbed Ghetto Funk. It’s loosely based around well known vocals with fresh beats and dirty basslines. Call them bootlegs, rerubs, tributes, covers, mash ups what ever you like. With an ever growing fan base, LOZEN was sought out to push the sound forward with original material. The “Booty Funk” EP hit No#3 on the Juno Breakbeat Charts and LOZEN’s “Records In The Crate” single has since been remixed by DJs and Producers worldwide. The release was followed shorty after by the Basement Freaks & Badboe “Bombastic Collabs Jam 01” EP where LOZEN’s track “Boomshakala” hit No#1 on Juno Charts Bestsellers its first week.
After countless appearances, musical invitations and years on the grind, headhunters have begun noticing LOZEN’s elusive style and commercially viable persona. She has shared the stage and opened for a roster of talent including:
The Beatnuts, Rakim, Animal Nation, Tha Alkaholiks, Basement Freaks, Cityreal, Praiz, Mat The Alien, Rich A, Surgeon, Rob Baanks and many more. This self-professed lyrical warrior has undoubtedly matured into a soulful renaissance woman.

Fresh Welsh punk-rock band Last Vendetta’s debut single and video release.
Heavier than Pop-Punk, catchier than Rock and just as at home on a playlist with Foo Fighters as Funeral For a Friend, Last Vendetta are a band of opposites; often heavy and raw but always catchy and melodic, tugging on heartstrings with their tongues firmly in cheek. They effortlessly capture a nostalgic early noughties sound infused with their own unique, visceral style.
While Last Vendetta are new for 2014, their sound is the culmination of a musical friendship stretching back years. In 2013 they struck up a partnership with independent label Sonic Forge Music and began work on crafting their debut album ‘Poetry & Adultery’.
As a precursor to the album release next year, ‘To Be Continued…’ is now available as a free download at SoundCloud, introducing the world to the punk-rock powerhouse that is Last Vendetta. Their first official single is scheduled for general release shortly after the album launch in March / April 2014.
