We’ve had several artists come from across the pond, so it’s about time we take a look at what’s going on up north. After all, our Canadian neighbors have given us big names like Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen…
Hailing from Vancouver, BC, Canada is up-and-coming band, Halfway to Hollywood. The band, comprised of Grant Walker, Brenden White and Roman Zugarazo has been rocking the Canadian music scene since the 2011 release of their debut EP "Speechless." The digital album featured three songs "Speechless," "Breakdown" and an acoustic track "Still Waiting." Though brief, the EP earned the band a fan-following.
The three-piece recently released their latest EP, Party Like it’s Prom Night this past March. They just wrapped up a tour across Canada to promote the release.
Currently, the band appears to be planning a summer tour… at least according to their recent Facebook posts. While awaiting the official word on that, be sure to check out their music video for their song, “Green Lights.”
This pop/rock trio is definitely one that is on the rise. If you love finding bands before they make it big, check out Halfway to Hollywood. These guys play their own instruments, write their own songs and know how to rock. Be sure to help Halfway to Hollywood get all the way to Hollywood by buying their EP Party Like it’s Prom Night on iTunes!
