Ones to Watch in 2011: Guinevere
With a CRAZY photo like the one above, how could you NOT like new artist Guinevere? Why don't you go listen to her debut single, "Crazy Crazy" below and if you like what you hear, you can even get it for free HERE.
The Toronto-born singer/songwriter, Guinevere is in the midst of putting together her debut album, working with hitmakers including Cirkut (Britney Spears), Brian West (Nelly Furtado), Arthur McArthur (Drake), Kevin Rudolph (Lil Wayne), Pilzbury (Danny Fernandez) and Ari Levine of The Smeezingtons (Bruno Mars, Cee-Lo, Mike Posner). Alright, I'm sold! "Crazy Crazy" is a hard-hitting bit of pop music that showcases Guinevere's talent and feisty attitude.
Before going solo, Guinevere was the frontwoman for a rock-spiked pop band called Get Rebel, formed with friends from a music camp she was kicked out of due to her shenanigans. While the band didn't stick together much past a year, during her journey Guinevere did have the pleasure of meeting Crash Karma bassist and songwriter/producer Amir Epstein, who would go on to become her manager and songwriter. Now, as a solo act, Guinevere is channeling ever fiber of her being into her music and she's hell bent on breaking out. According to her bio, Guinevere's goal is to live up to her namesake.
"I have all of these medallions that I like to wear of King Arthur slaying the dragon and Guinevere is very close to my name," she explains. "But even more interesting is that she was King Arthur's wife and had an affair with his best friend, Sir Lancelot, and created a huge storm in the knighthood."I really think there's a lot of potential here. She's got the voice, she's got the personality, she's got the look. Add to that a top notch team of producers and there's definitely hit potential in Guinevere. Now it's all about getting noticed. Here's hoping my blog helps her a little bit in that department.
