CSSN is excited to welcome Canadian singer-songwriter Megan Landry to our list of supporters!
At just 16 years old, this extraordinary young artist from Nova Scotia has already achieved awards and accolades far beyond her years. The victim of bullying at school, Megan channeled her energy into a positive response using her song-writing talent. The result was a song called “Stronger,” which Megan posted on YouTube with a video she produced herself.
“Stronger” quickly garnered the attention of numerous anti-bullying groups and the media. To date, the original video version of “Stronger” has logged over 86,000 views on YouTube and inspired dozens of cover versions by youth all across North America.
Earlier this year, Megan was awarded the “Top Female Artist” honour by the Archimedia STAR contest. Megan topped hundreds of other independent artists to earn the award.
Of Megan’s work, Archimedia President Vince Spagnolo said: “Megan’s lyrics are honest and from the heart wrapped in soundscapes that are distinctive, current and deeply personal. Megan, is an artist who has already established her own identity and originality both which are coveted but often elude many of today’s artists.”
We couldn’t agree more … and we look forward to welcoming Megan to Toronto as the featured performer at The 16th Annual Unforgettable Dinner on November 20th!
