Canadian Music

I’m a big fan of our homegrown talent. The Canadian music industry is blessed with so many great musicians, singers, song writers and producers. Many of us are stuck in our cars during the daily commute and the only thing keeping us all sane are our friends on the radio.

Shawn Hook

I saw Shawn Hook during the live taping of Breakfast Television's Christmas Party. Shawn did a great Job. Shawn Performed his hit song " Million Ways" he was awesome. It's a great song and I absolutely love the video. I was standing by him after his performance as he interacted with his backup singers and what appeared to be his girlfriend. In Canadian fashion, he was genuine, he was commenting on how he missed a note on the keyboard, of course he was the only one who noticed. He was charming and amazing with his young fans who asked for selfies with him. He indulged them all, he often had to squat down to be at his fans height. I'm a big fan of homegrown talent and again I was so impressed by the musician and even more by the person with in. http://www.shawnhook.com/
