Talented Kelowna: Top 6 acts

Over the past 8 weeks I have been hosting a talent competition at the Pheasant and Quail called Talented Kelowna. Its one of a number of emerging talent initiatives I am working on under the newly formed Creative Okanagan Artist and Event Development Society. Its been amazing to watch over 60 acts come out and share their talent over the past few weeks. At the semi finals on Nov 17th we had over 14 acts and they were all very impressive and unique. That evening we narrowed it down to the Top 6 acts and I wanted to share them with you.

This is your chance to pick your favourite act from the videos below to help pick the Castanet "viewers choice". It will be 100% based on your votes. Each video is about 4 minutes long but your busy so feel free to skim through them as you make your voice heard for who should be Castanets "viewers choice".

I'll be hosting the finals this Saturday at the Pheasant and Quail where we will pick the top 3 acts. I would love to invite all of you but its been at capacity the past few weeks so watching the videos here on Castanet is the best way to hear the talent that Kelowna has to offer. For those just hearing about the competition, fret not. Talented Kelowna 2 launches April, 2013.

I love creating songs, which have been used by the Terry Fox Run, Kelowna’s Centennial Celebration, or heard on various local radio stations.
