Life & Style

Chloe Dolores Canadian Musician

Chloe DoloresUpon moving to Toronto at age 18, Chloë began frequenting open mics with her grandfather’s old telecaster and a collection of lighthearted pop songs that she had written in high school.

Before long she had formed a four piece band called Dreamboat and was playing shows at little bars on the west side of Toronto. Over time she gained confidence as a band leader, and her songwriting style morphed as she experimented with different genres.

Life experience goes a long way in the development of any artist. In Chloë’s case, nothing has influenced her work more than her recent backpacking trip through Asia. She returned to home soil teeming with inspiration and an unbridled sense of freedom to explore the limits of her creativity.

Since then she has performed her new material extensively as a solo artist, and began learning to use LogicPro software to record demos of her songs. She has challenged herself with new projects such as playing keyboards and singing backup vocals in a band, Pete Casey and the Vikkies; doing songwriting sessions, and scoring the soundtrack to a short film; Scattered.

Growing up with musician parents meant that venues like the Dakota Tavern and the Cameron House have always felt like home turf, but making debuts on these stages with her own projects has been extremely rewarding. Chloë will begin recording an EP in the coming months and looks forward to forming a band in the near future.

Dodgers, Anaheim Angels, San Diego Chargers and Padres, L.A. Kings, L.A. Galaxy. Darcy felt honored and privileged to be given this opportunity. Her two children (who were preschoolers at the time) still sometimes refer to the Star Spangled Banner as “The Mommy Song”.

Shelsey Jarvis, Country Singer/Songwriter

Shelsey JarvisAfter experimenting with many different styles of music, Shelsey Jarvis has finally found that country really resonated. After being involved in projects ranging from metal to hip hop to folk, she was hired to sing and write a country song and re-discovered the genre.

Having grown up in New Brunswick on the east coast of Canada, Shelsey is no stranger to country. She grew up listening to Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson. After moving to places like Philadelphia, New York and Montreal, she started discovering other types of music. Nothing seemed to quite click. Recently in 2010, she fell in love with the singer/songwriter focus that country has, and plans to move to Nashville with her husband Max, who is also a musician.

The wheels are in motion, the demo is being recorded at le Plan A studio, and the live set is being prepared. Stay tuned.

Peace Overtures – Returning Balance To Life

This week Sue-Anne and David continue their season long theme: The Five Dimensions of Well-Being, with another Alignment Process film around the ENVIRONMENT dimension.

This episode is called: Returning Balance To Life. The featured Alignment Film is Avatar the blockbuster film from James Cameron.

Avatar is set in the mid-22nd century, when humans are colonizing Pandora, a lush habitable moon of a gas giant in the Alpha Centauri star system to mine the mineral unobtanium.

The expansion of the mining colony threatens the continued existence of a local tribe of Na’vi – a humanoid species indigenous to Pandora.

Avatar shows the imbalance of Masculine/Feminine macro patterns occurring on our planet today and how this is manifesting into untenable problems.

David and Sue-Anne discuss the many benefits to be discovered if we can find a way to bring the feminine and masculine into balance.

Watching Avatar will help you align with this desired balance.

Sue-Anne wraps up the show with an Alignment Session called: What Do You Stand For?
