It is December 8th 2013 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
"At the age of twenty, Vancouver based indie/pop artist, Alexandria Maillot, has developed a tremendous resume in her young years as an independent artist, including: Performing in festivals overseas in Egypt and Romania, winning numerous competitions like the We Are Listening Singer/Songwriter Awards and catching the attention of impresario David Foster and earning a spot onstage with famed singer Jann Arden during a televised concert in Toronto."
From Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Alexandria Maillot has been standing out within the Canadian music scene, and around parts of the world, with her unbelievable voice and music. Her indie/pop style, which touches into rhythm and blues at times, instantly makes her stand out. And, with powerful influences such as Fleetwood Mac, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, and many others, it is no wonder why her music is getting stuck in people's heads all around.
It is definitely clear that this young woman is not afraid to put everything she has into her music. And, it has certainly shown through her many accomplishments.
Alexandria's accomplishments can be found on her Facebook page, where it states things such as, "One of her original songs, Revolution, was picked up by Universal Music in Europe and appears on the debut album by Swiss recording artist, Stefanie Heinzmann. The song was the third single (with an accompanying music video on Youtube which has garnered almost one million views) from Stefanie's album, Masterplan, which went gold in Germany and Switzerland and was Top 10 in the EU. As well, Alexandria has recently sold two more songs to a Germany publishing company for European release in 2013."
On June 22nd 2012, Alexandria Maillot released her EP, titled Just Another Girl. Complete with seven phenomenal songs, the EP has been recognized by fans all around the world. And, of course, the final track on the EP, titled That's Swell, is earning this week's 'Song of the Week' spot.
Alongside her absolutely perfect EP and immense talent, Alexandria continues to put amazing accomplishments behind her. Some of her most recent accomplishments include, "being featured on MTV and Ourstage as the Needle In The Haystack; performing at Western Canada's largest Canada Day celebration in 2012 in Surrey, British Columbia; being featured as 95.3 Virgin Radio's Best Of BC feature and American Airlines for their In-Flight Entertainment (reaching over half a million listeners); featured throughout Six Flags national theme parks for their New Music Hour, Skope Magazine's Artist To Watch feature and on Oprah Winfrey's website as part of Oprah’s Search For The World's Smartest And Most Talented Kids section."
So, I think Alexandria Maillot herself has proven why she has earned this week's 'Song of the Week' spot with That's Swell. With [consistently] impressive releases and accomplishments, this young woman's career will only continue to grow.
Alexandria Maillot's EP, Just Another Girl, which includes this week's 'Song of the Week', That's Swell, can be found on her Bandcamp page. As well, you can check out a video of her performing That's Swell, found here:
