   Ms. Rivard is a classically trained singer and began her singing career by competing in many Kiwanis festivals where she placed first in opera/operetta & musical theatre. Soon thereafter, she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Honors Degree in Music Theatre from the University of Windsor. This program was the only University Degree Program in Canada and accepted roughly 12 students per year. She has toured with Riverdance and performed the show on Broadway at the Gerswhin Theatre.

She toured the musical Camelot in a co-production with the Manitoba Theatre Centre, Theatre Calgary, & the Citadel Theatre. In addition, she toured with Sam Orbison’s production about his brother Roy Orbison, “The Roy Orbison Story” and Celtic Woman in their tour Celtic Woman: A New Journey as a chorus member. Amy spent over a year in Japan where she performed at Tokyo DisneySea, Tokyo Disneyland & the Tokyo DisneySea Hotel MiraCosta.

Artist: Angry Orphans
Release: Aorist
Year: 2005

    Angry Orphans reside from Chatham Ontario.  We play music of philosophy and ideas.  We’ve been a band somewhat a year and have graced stages, causing all thought. We are a five piece band of 4 young boys and one young girl. We play dark music of many types.  Our music is always a surprise.  You won’t be expecting this.  We write our music as well as cover others’ art that has spoken to us.

    Note: By the sounds of this demo, I must say this is the previous works of “The God Life” And future members of “The Grave Misunderstanding”.

   Whaling is the best 70’s inspired guitar jam band in general. A man with a true passion for his craft and is all about the music. I got to see him perform before I was of age since my Dad joined the band on bass for a while.  They rehearsed at my house. The music is solid & the passion is real, and to top it all off, they are down to earth guys.
