Experience - Upcoming Events

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

Air Supply – it all began in ’75. Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock met on May 12, 1975, on the first day of rehearsals for the Australian production of Jesus Christ Superstar in Sydney. They became instant friends who shared much in common, including their love of The Beatles whom they’d both seen in 1964 in England and Australia respectively.

After the evening performance of Jesus Christ Superstar, they would play in Coffee Bars, Pizza Parlours, and anywhere they could to hone their vocal skills and harmonies. Graham wrote constantly and, with the help of Superstar Pianist Frank Esler Smith, they recorded a few songs on cassette, one of which was “Love and Other Bruises.” After taking these demos to all the major record companies and being rejected by all of them but one — CBS Records — they signed a recording deal.

The trademark sound of Russell Hitchcock’s soaring tenor voice and Graham Russell’s simple but majestic compositions created a unique sound that would be forever known as Air Supply.

On May 12th, 2020, the band celebrated 45 years… the rest is music history.
