It is December 2012 and you know what that means! It is time to award another deserving artist or band Basement Entertainment's 'Band of the Month' featured spot.
As usual, we chose four artists and bands and had them battle it out, over on our official Facebook page, for the 'Band of the Month' spot. And, even with [only] two weeks to vote, Sarah Bernardo Music won this month's featured spot by a landslide.
If you are from the Kitchener, Ontario area, or even nearby, the name Sarah Bernardo may ring a bell. This very talented eighteen year old, along with her incredibly talented [twenty one year old sister], Victoria Bernardo, have been making quite a name for themselves in the local music scene lately.
2012 was an incredible year for these two. Not only did their fan base start to rapidly grow, but they were taking events by storm, sometimes playing a couple a week. And, of course, since first meeting the two back in August of 2012, Basement Entertainment has been booking them every chance possible.
Together these two are capable of creating some of the most phenomenally written songs I have heard. Each song they write, record and perform will seriously stay in your head for ages. Oh, and did I mention they do incredible covers as well, including, most recently, one of Sleeping With Siren's song, With Ears To See And Eyes To Hear.
Although I met this acoustic pop duo [only] five months ago, it is certain they are just in the beginning stages of what will come. I am sure they already have events lined up into 2013 as well. And, they will be ending this year on a high performing, alongside The Icarus Account, at our next event on December 15th 2012 in Waterloo, Ontario.
Back in November Basement Entertainment featured Sarah Bernardo Music as a part of our 'Song of the Week' feature. Their original song Point Of No Return, was recognized. And, since then they have some new music on the way as well.
As I have said before, my jaw literally dropped the moment I first heard these two live back in August of 2012. They have so much talent it is crazy. And, they are definitely deserving of the December 2012 'Band of the Month' feature.
Sarah and Victoria Bernardo are undeniably two young women you will want to follow into 2013. With the accomplishments they have made so far, especially in 2012, their future looks bright.
