Over an illustrious career spanning more than two decades, JUNO Award winning singer-songwriter Johnny Reid has captured the hearts of fans and audiences around the world. The critically acclaimed singer is widely known for his lyrical honesty and musical ability, as demonstrated by a vast catalogue of hit songs, platinum selling albums, 26 Canadian Country Music Awards, six JUNO Awards and multiple sold-out national arena tours.

On October 15, 2021, six-time JUNO Award winning singer-songwriter Johnny Reid released his brand new full length album, Love Someone via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.

Love Someone is the artist’s eleventh album and features 14-tracks in which Reid leans into his country roots. The album marks the artist’s most intimate and inspired collection of songs to date. True to Reid’s wide range of repertoire, the album is a refreshing blend of country, pop and soulful ballads. Highlights include the album’s lead single, the pop country track, “Hey Delilah,” the beautifully heartfelt, “I Owe It All To You,” and “Have A Little Faith In Me” a cover of the John Hiatt classic. As a bonus, the album includes a special acoustic version of Reid’s moving song, “People Like You,” dedicated to the people of Nova Scotia after the devastating tragedy that hit their tight knit community in April 2020. In his new video series, Reid shares the stories behind Love Someone and reveals his songwriting process.

“Love Someone is a call to action,” says Reid. “The pandemic has taught us all a lot about the significance of time and how we spend it. We need to look out for each other now more than ever. ‘Roll your windows down, feel the sun, take some time, love someone.’”

Next up for the multi-platinum artist is a long-awaited live tour. The Love Someone National Tour is set to be one of the longest running Canadian tours in history. The extensive tour will go cross-country, mainly in small theatres in secondary markets, something Reid has wanted to do for quite some time as an opportunity to connect with his audience through storytelling on a more intimate level.

“Take a pinch of Bruce Springsteen, a dash of Bob Seger and enough Rod Stewart to give the mix vocal gravel, and you start to get the vibe of this Scottish-born singer/songwriter.” – The New York Post


Classic Albums Live takes classic albums from the 60s and 70s and recreates those albums live on stage – note for note, cut for cut using the world’s best musicians. Fans are treated to an exact replication of the album followed by a second set of the featured artist’s greatest hits.

Creedence Clearwater Revival was America’s greatest band. Their music reached out and got an entire continent rocking. Hit after hit, no other band delivers that big a collection of instantly recognizable, toe tapping songs. Classic Albums Live will honour the legacy of CCR by performing their ‘Chronicle’ album with joy and dedication. Note for note, cut for cut.

Five strangers receive a mysterious invitation that, one stormy night, leads them, to an old, abandoned building in the heart of the forest.

The visitors will discover that this house has a soul and a personality all its own. When you’ve been invited by the house, and when you cross its threshold, you have the strange impression that it knows you inside-out. During your stay, it talks to you (that’s right, this house can talk!), it guides you, it reveals aspects of your personality you didn’t know you had. The House and its control box might throw you challenges along the way. But there will also be fun and good cheer, and some amazing acrobatic feats!

Join master trickster Jamie Adkins and his friends for this amazing acrobatic comedy from FLIP Fabrique, where mundane turns to magical, and ingenuity is always involved!

On this planet, there are just six degrees of separation between us all. And since there are only five people on stage, what if the sixth person—the missing link—was you?
