J.C. Brae – Getting Creative

I’ve always loved writing poetry and music; it is like an extension of my heart. Putting your heart into song leaves you open to interpretation and vulnerability to the listener. Being able to do that and put pen to paper, allows me to pour my heart out there for everyone to hear and feel.

I have always loved having an emotional affect on people with the words I sing; being my creative self, allows me to extend insight of my personal journey in life, and in my music career.

Just like I am writing this to all of you!

I am currently writing new music; be creative and keep moving forward in a positive way and pass along great intentions and good vibes.

J.C. Brae – Northern Ontario Country Music Community

There has been a lot of musical talent that has come from Northern Ontario; Shania Twain, Stompin’ Tom Connors, Gil Grand, and Jake Matthews just to name a few.

There are many concerts that come to my hometown of Sudbury, Ontario. We have multiple venue’s for local talent and band circuits. It’s a diverse crowd here and many genre’s to choose from as well.

Northern Ontario is a great location to visit and check out the local “arts” scene; for an area that is supported by the mining industry, you will be amazed at just how creative this place can be.

Maybe that is why some great talent has come from Northern Ontario; blue collar, hard working people, who have generations of stories to share. Their stories come out in their music; good story telling music.

J.C. Brae – Karaoke Circuit

From the ages of 19 to 35, I sang with bands, but could not seem to find members who wanted to play all the time. I wanted to sing more and more, so instead I entered the Karaoke scene.

I made a lot of friends and fans through Karaoke; I know it helped me to keep working on my craft. To sing all my favorites and to hear everyone sing along, brought such joy into my life.

I know musicians out there, are not the biggest fans of Karaoke, but it was the easiest way for me to be proactive without having to find space to jam in, plus trying to gather the band to practice. The industry is unique.

The contests I entered in this setting were fun and I was able to play with my voice and truly find my “pocket”. I owe a great deal to Karaoke for helping me master my craft.
