RLR would like to announce it’s latest signing of Toronto Indie Rock band CAR TROUBLE, the first signing of an artist for 2017.

Lead singer Layton Thomas (vocals, guitars), Lu Valiente (Bass) and ‘Fatsound’ Clarke (Drums) make up the new Indie trio. The debut single “NOIR” is scheduled to debut just prior to Spring 2017 from their EP entitled “Forethoughts”. RLR owner Michael Hanson has described their original music as “a creative, clever original sound with imaginative chord workings and a uniquely sincere vocal delivery from singer Thomas. The band should appeal strongly to the Canadian Indie audience.”

Kylie Alora

 

We are proud to announce the signing of Toronto singer / songwriter Kylie Alora to Radar Love Records as the label’s premiere female pop vocal artist for 2017/2018.

Although barely out of her teens, Kylie has been steadily establishing a presence within the Canadian entertainment scene over the past several years. After working with Toronto rapper iSH and his team at Warner Music, Kylie went out on her own in 2014, developing her distinctive approach to pop—one that combines unforgettable hooks with an authentic and positive message. As an artist with pure talent and a tireless drive to make a difference in the lives of her audience, Kylie is set to make a lasting impact on the Canadian music scene and beyond.

Hanson says “this young lady is going to be a star. She’s been sought after by a number of companies, and we’re thrilled to have her finally! She has the vocal moves of an Aguilera (Christina) and can write world class music. We’re so very proud to have her on our label, looking towards her late August debut National release “Ain’t Gonna Put Up A Fight” with great anticipation”.

Kylie has already made some great marks in her rising fame including CNE Rising Star Competition in 2014 and RBC Canada’s Walk of Fame Emerging Artist Finalist 2015.  Kylie co-wrote and performed the theme song for the movie “The Masked Saint (Theatrical Release 2016) with Canadian Legendary writer Marc Jordan.

Currently Kylie is creating her first EP to go along with that, and is touring with the performance group “Really Big World”.

Mason Greer

Known most recently as the Anthem Singer for the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs, a chance introduction for young singer MASON GREER (13 years old at the time) led him to Producer Michael Hanson and later Radar Love Records, where he was promptly signed as the Label’s first POP male artist. After a CBC special aired on Mason, Hanson went into the studio with him and worked up their debut single “VOWS”. Young, small statured but with a voice like a mountain, Hanson says “Mason’s got that beautiful pure sustain that a Michael Buble-style artist has, but with a young pop flare, and unique tonal quality.”
