Aboriginal Canadian Singer Rose Beach Joins NARIA



Tokyo-based Aboriginal Canadian artist Rose Beach announced that she has been admitted as a member in the National Aboriginal Recording Industry Association. NARIA is a national Aboriginal association of professional Aboriginal music artists, associated music business people, and service providers.

Rose Beach, whose blend of folk music tale spinning, hip hop energy and pop sensibility she labels “fusion pop,” stands to set things to right on her CD Family Love by showing love in it's true light, as a force that is our life line.

Born in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada and raised primarily in Saskatchewan by a strong, loving and musically inclined mother of Canadian aboriginal ancestry and a farmer stepfather with a love of country music, she had the dream of music early in life. "The world view that pumps through her music comes from her family and her native culture and is one where pain, abuse and oppression are countered by kindness and integrity and positive use of the force," noted music reviewer Mark Kirby.

When asked on how her mother's experiences influenced her music, she responded "My grandmother, my great-grandmother and their generation suffered atrocities. My mother experienced racism. Their experiences made me want the dream (of achievement) all the more. The native youth are strong survivors and we are proud of our ancestry and our ancestors' legacy. Always positively through negativity, which is the message of my CD, "Family Love.”

Starting in the underground streets of Vancouver and Tokyo, Rose Beach is rising into the musical mainstream in Japan where she has sold more than 50,000 records and performs weekly at many of Tokyo's famous clubs such as Club Asia, as well as corporate events for brand names ranging from Lush and Diesel to Asahi and Mac. "It's not often that a foreigner can rock the club scene in Japan, but that is what Canadian singer-songwriter Rose Beach is doing," noted the Hiragana Times.

In addition to her heavy independent CD sales, Rose Beach has been interviewed and received heavy airplay on Co-op Radio in her home base of Vancouver. She has also been interviewed and played on Inter-FM Radio in Tokyo.

Rose Beach is a member of the MusicDish Network, a complete artist development program, leveraging brand development, saturated and relationship marketing, digital distribution and industry outreach to support emerging artists' and bands' careers.

Susan Aglukark: Native Artist, speaker, singer, activist and role model for Aboriginal Youth
After her last release, Big Feeling (EMI, 2003), which garnered her a Juno award and once again proved her staying power in the Canadian music industry, Susan Aglukark set out to carve her own path.  Her newest album, Blood Red Earth, is an independent release containing some of her most intimate stories that resonate for listeners through both lyric and music. Susan speaks of Blood Red Earth as being a turning point.  She was able to lay out all of her own ideas, work with other artists who could help her flesh them out into song, and let listeners know that she has something to say.  Susan says this album is "like reaching that next level of liberation." 
Susan's albums Arctic Rose, Christmas, This Child, Unsung Heroes and Big Feeling have sold over 400,000 copies in Canada to date.  Blood Red Earth is already starting a stir and has received four Canadian Aboriginal Music Award nominations!  Susan has her sights set on touring her new album and the continuation of her activist work. She says she never strays far from her roots or the people of Arctic Canada where she grew up; her ultimate message, "to learn to be yourself and believe in that person" reaches much further and touches all people everywhere.
