  • ria-jadeOttawa, – RBC Bluesfest or­ganizers today announced the finalists for their 20th anniver­sary edition of the She’s the One Emerging Female Artist Competi­tion, sponsored by JUMP! 106.9. The finalists — chosen from as far afield as Newfoundland and B.C. — are: Jheo Navarro, Emma Peckford, Abby Stewart, Angelique Francis, Ezra Lewis, Justice Tremblay, Olivia Penalva, Ria Diy, Stephanie La Rochelle, and Taylor Angus.

    The competition is a cross-Canada talent search for the best in emerging Canadian female mu­sic talent. With the help of JUMP! 106.9, Bluesfest has found 10 promising young female Cana­dian singers. As part of this year’s special 20th Anniversary edition, organizers zeroed in on the best emerging ‘teenage’ female sing­ers in Canada.

    “We were looking for special young artists with in­credible voices who could present a moving live performance,” says RBC Bluesfest ‘She’s the One’ coordinator Ana Miura. “We’re delighted with the talented list of finalists that rose to the top, this year.”

    “We already know that there’s an incredible amount of undis­covered female vocal talent in Canada,” says Bluesfest’s ex­ecutive and artistic director, Mark Monahan. “This year’s ‘She’s the One’ competition not only proves it, it goes a long way to providing impetus for the careers of these  deserving young Canadian sing­ers.”

    The First Prize Package: One of the finalists will “Be the ONE” to win this year’s incredible grand prize! RBC Bluesfest is providing the She’s the One winner with a whirl-wind, career-building trip to Los Angeles to work with top LA-based music producer Barrett Yeretsian (Jar of Hearts, Christina Perri). They’ll record a song at the legendary Sunset Sound Record­ing Studio and take part in a star makeover photo-shoot and mu­sic tutorial prior to filming a Hol­lywood-style music video, cour­tesy of Popmania! In addition to the opportunity of a lifetime, the winner will walk away with a guitar from Daisy Rock Girl Guitars.

    The Competition was open to female singers between the ages of 13-19 years of age who are Ca­nadian residents. The 10 finalists will perform at the RBC Bluesfest in Ottawa on Saturday July 5, 2014. One winner (Canadian female singer between the ages of 13 and 19 years) will be se­lected.
