Craig David arrived on the Pop scene in the early 2000s as a force to be reckoned with. Fusing Two-Step Garage and R&B, the striking Southampton Singer/Songwriter had a sound unlike any other. Selling over 3.5 million copies of his debut disc Born To Do It with smash hits like Fill Me In and 7 Days, he would go on to be nominated for several BRIT and Grammy Awards also.
While it’s been some time since we’ve seen David in these parts, he has resurfaced with his seventh studio album The Time Is Now, released in Canada via Sony Music, led by new single Heartline. The Disc features also a collaboration with Bastille, titled I Know You. If you’ve followed David‘s career, you’ll hear the evolution in his sound and how it is very “now”, yet his older material actually still sounds fresh.
David treated longtime fans to a rare, intimate Toronto show at Velvet Underground delivering a selection of his catalog of hits and even found time to do a bit of Press while in the City.
See our Snap with David, whose music we’ve enjoyed for a long time. Though, busy on a call, he was more than nice to stop for a Snap understanding the request through hand gestures.

Busy doing the TV circuit in Los Angeles last week in support of 12 Strong, Stults toughs the polar opposite temperatures locally armed with earmuffs.

Although he was to make it into the City last week for his latest Film THE RECALL, Breaking Bad star RJ Mittemade it here at last for a different reason. The 24-year-old actor known best for his work on that AMC series as Walter White Jr., was like his character, diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. He has overcome the odds and he is here to speak about it at the 18th annual Ability and Beyond Dinner at the Royal York Hotel tonight for The March of Dimes Canada, hosted by Carolyn Mackenzie of Global Television.
After flying in to Toronto last night, Mitte did a bit of press today including Global Television’s The Morning Show about his partnership with The March of Dimes.
He was amazingly nice to stop after hopping out of his cab for a quick Snap!

If there was one Artist who dominated our airwaves this summer, it is Daya. The funny thing is, many of us still can’t put a face to the name of the 17-year-old from Pittsburgh with three consecutive smash hits already including Hide Away, Don’t Let Me Down (with The Chainsmokers) and of course, catchy current single Still Still, Look Pretty.
Check out Sit Still, Look Pretty below:
Daya made her first visit to Toronto headlining The Family Channel’s Big Ticket at Molson Amphitheatre, a commitment made likely before her star rose as quickly as it has. With her debut album coming October, she tells us, she will be embarking on her own headlining tour early 2017.
While doing very limited Press here in the City, she did make a stop-off at Global Television‘s The Morning Show (National Edition) for a quick chat before getting a little break from continuous touring.
Watch the interview:
We legitimately are a huge fan of Daya and look forward to her being a major force as she develops into a major Pop Star! On-top of it all she is so down-to-earth and week, amazingly nice to all Fans today as her entourage enjoyed seeing their star shine bright!
With the Olympic Games Rio 2016 coming to an end, Team Canada made their way back to Toronto last night and up and at ’em early today to talk about their experiences were 100 Metre Women’s Freestyle gold medalist Penny Oleksiak with Michelle Williams, Brittany MacLean and Sandy Mainville. The quartet started their day walking on-foot to their Breakfast Television appearance (where they munched on Tim Hortons goodies), before heading over to The Morning Show. Although there wasn’t much time for fan interaction, Oleksiak, Williams, MacLean and Mainville stopped for some Selfies with Fans after their last interview of the morning.
