After coming off her 2011 Juno Award win for Best New Artist, Meaghan Smith wanted to take a chance. While her critically acclaimed album The Cricket’s Orchestra had been lauded for its honest, insightful songwriting and vintage sound, Meaghan knew that she wanted to make an entirely different album; a pop record with big choruses, ambitious production, and a chance to connect with more people than she ever had in the past. The result is Have a Heart - an album full of honest, personal songs that sound contemporary, yet retain a hint of her love for all things vintage.
“I hope people feel amazing when they listen to Have A Heart", says Meaghan, "I hope they love it. I hope they find themselves in it. Music is about connecting, and I want to connect with millions of people.”
Congratulations to our 2014 GRAMMY Award Winners And Nominees!
The 56th Annual Grammy Awards took place last Sunday and we are so proud of all of our nominated and winning artists. The range of incredible talent, as well as the depth and diversity of our artists in all stages of their careers was evident. Among our winners were Bruno Mars, Gary Clark Jr., Michael Bublé, Jay Z, Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell, and Kacey Musgraves, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis who took home four awards as one of the night's biggest winners. The legendary Led Zeppelin won "Best Rock Album", and while they were given a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005, this was amazingly their first Grammy!

Says Kylie, “2013 was a year of big change, planning and preparation for me and I’m so excited that 2014 is finally here so I can share this new music . Into The Blue is really special to me as it encapsulates a lot of what I’ve been feeling - I can’t wait for it to be out there.”
