Aimee Simmons - "Ride Away" (Official Lyric Video)

Aimee Simmons wrote "RIDE AWAY" during the heap of COVID when she often felt trapped by her surroundings. She recalls that she was outside one day, heard a car drive by and thought "I could just grab my bike and ride away"...


"The goal of ride away was to make the listener feel like the sun would. I could only think of the word yellow". A "walking" indie piece that takes the listener away for an escape - the melody, lyrics, and beautiful weaving instrumentation spices by Producer Hanson all combine to make this song truly special. One listen is never enough.

Aimee Simmons - THANKFUL FOR THE DEMONS

"Thank You For The Demons" is the 2nd release from etheral singer/songwriter Aimee Simmons. A powerful introspective track, it has a heavy driving backbeat and dark instrumental overtones. Produced By Michael Hanson (Glass Tiger, 5 Juno Awards, Grammy Nominee) it stands out as a testimonial to Simmon's lyrical prowess and unique vocal approach.

KC - Fallin' In

Canadian singer-songwriter KC's second single "FALLIN' IN" is a raucous, ethereal dance-pop track written with her music partner 5-Time Juno Award winner / producer Michael Hanson. The song is laden with hooks and unusual musical high points that hit you when you least expect it. Hanson says "KC's voice is often very indie, unusual at times and airy - such as in Pillow Of Tears - but then in this newest track, she suddenly becomes a booming powerhouse in the same wheelhouse as an Adele".

RLR and eclectic singer-songwriter Chad (CCC!) have struck a Distribution Deal and Chad's DEBUT - upbeat get-on-your-feet country rocker CLOUD 10.

Chad & Producer Michael Hanson hit it off with a bang, and are now collaborating very quickly and with amazing results. "He's got that cool rough voice just jumping off the page with emotion. Very Seger-like, which I love. Canada's gonna love this guy. "

You may see Chad (in his signature wrestling mask, a pair of shorts and a guitar) rollerblading at full speed right by your front door while you pick up your mail! He's everywhere and he's comin' at you from out of the shadows! Quickly becoming quite famous for this routine, Chad and his Right Arm Productions (www.rightarmrightarmrightarm.com) are about to have a big year. 

As Chad is heard to shout regularly ... "Right arm, right arm, right arm!"

VICKY RAI - A STAR TO GUIDE ME HOME


A Star To Guide Me Home is an epic, beautiful ballad written by Juno Award winners Michael Hanson and Alan Frew, both original members of Canadian Pop icons "Glass Tiger". Vicky Rai's vocal acrobatics are on full display as she delivers a heart stopping performance to be remembered for years.

Vicky Rai is a shining new star, a 16 year old vocal sensation from Toronto Canada, ready to make the jump to become Canada's performer sweetheart. Having been singing live at a number of Portuguese music events since the age of 9 - and then spending some time honing her vocals with some girl groups along the way, she met Producer Michael Hanson (Glass Tiger, 5 Junos, Grammy Nom) and the musical sparks flew. "She had the vocal acrobatics of Aguilera when she was only 11" Hanson states. "Tiny frame, huge voice. She pretty much knocked me out when I heard those kind of wild moves for that age". Both decided pop would be the way to go, and a number of tracks led to her first single in 2020. The future looks amazing for this singer-songwriter!

Aimee Simmons

Aimee Simmons is an exciting new 15 year old singer/songwriter from Ontario, Canada.

In 2020, through a chance meeting, the indie artist partnered with Glass Tiger’s original founding member, five time Juno Award winning Producer Michael Hanson. The two have embarked on a five song EP through Indie Label Radar Love Records, located in Mississauga, Ontario.

Aimee explains: "The song is about the people who I used to know who were incessantly jerks. This to me is almost my villain song. It’s sort of me describing how awful these people were and then how I built that wall and can defend myself now. There’s a lot of underlying anger in it. 

When I picture a visual it’s almost like a villain having someone who wronged them in front of them and lowering something they love into a pit of fire and just making them watch. Very dark I know. I swear I’m not weird".
