From 1980 through 1987 LOVER BOY garnered four multi-Platinum albums and numerous international Gold albums. Their tours sold out arenas and stadiums nationwide. Their hit singles came one after another, and went on to become the anthems and party songs of an entire generation of rock concert going fans.
They've sold millions of albums, with songs that have become standards - Spaceship Superstar, Take Me to the Kaptin, Flying, Armageddon, Take Me Away, Young & Restless, Night to Remember, Don’t Let Him Know among them. Prism itself is classic rock.
BIG SUGAR churn out their unique blend of roots-rock-reggae, soul and dub with double neck guitars and dreadlocks flying through the air. Gordie Johnson and his Rasta brethren are well known for their thundering live performances spiced with epic dub excursions that keep crowds grooving.

Down With Webster is built of 2 MCs (Cam & Bucky), A DJ (Diggy), A charismatic lead singer (Pat) and one of the most talented rhythm sections in the game (Marty – drums, Tyler – Bass/Keys). One might describe their sound as hip-hop with a hint of Electro-Alternative, delivered by a kick ass rock band.

Kristina’s debut single, Let’s Play, achieved #1 in Canada (BDS Canadian all format) and nearly reached Platinum status. If you listened to the radio in 2012, you couldn’t help but hear Let’s Play over and over again across the country. The success of her first single was no surprise, and she followed that up with another infectious track Co-Pilot featuring Laza Morgan, a well recognized reggae artist.
