Image
I hope that you all had an amazing and safe holiday season!


Although 2015 was probably my best year professionally, it was also one of the toughest personally. I just want to thank everybody that supported me and gave me love, whether it was sharing my music or just being a friend, I greatly appreciate it. Below are links to two articles I was featured in this past year, and the post below this one has all of the information about where you can find my music.
Keep believing in yourself, and all the best in 2016!

A LITTLE UPDATE

So, apparently my song "Pray For A Better Day" got nominated for an American Songwriting Award! I wasn't a finalist, and I didn't win, but this was definitely another step towards the world recognizing my music. Huge thank you to Rob Lamothe​ for writing such a great song with me! https://americansongwritingawards.com/winners/2015-nominees-and-finalists


On another note, I unfortunately didn't win the Hamilton Music Award this year, but it was a great experience and there's always next year!

Hey all!

Just thought I'd give you a little update.

On March 15th I attended the 2015 Juno Awards, which was a really cool experience and a great night. Thank you to CARAS for the complimentary tickets!

Also, I have been nominated for a Hamilton Music Award in the Rap/Hip-Hop Recording Of The Year category for my album Everything Changed! (https://b-flix.bandcamp.com/album/everything-changed) This is my first ever music award nomination, so I'm pretty excited! On May 23rd, the night before the awards event, I will be performing at Club Absinthe in Hamilton, Ontario as part of a Hip-Hop showcase leading up to the awards.

ACCESSIBLE SEATING AT THE 2015 JUNO AWARDS

Image
As some of you may know I am a twenty-one year old R&B/Hip-Hop artist, and as most of you probably know I am confined to a power wheelchair. At about a year of age I was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a neuromuscular disease that affects my nerves and ability to build muscle. Despite any obstacles I face, I continue to move forward with a positive attitude, and the goal to show the world that individuals like myself can contribute to society.

Seeing as how the 2015 Juno Awards are in Hamilton this year (only about a fourty five minute drive from my home), I thought I would look into getting some tickets to the event (I was hoping that maybe my music would be nominated- unfortunately it wasn’t my year, but you never know what the future holds, right?). As I started perusing Ticketmaster for ticket options, I was unpleasantly surprised to discover that wheelchair seating was going to cost $166.75 a ticket for me to attend.

"I was approached by B-Flix who was unfortunately diagnosed with a rare neuromuscular disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy. This his why his voice is so unique. He has been in a power wheelchair since age of three.
It touched my heart to know that even in his difficult situation he still is striving towards his dream and passion.
I am proud to help promote this song we did together. When listening, please understand he has a very serious condition. Please have a kind heart... and be supportive of my new friend and lets wish him all of the best in the new year! Let him be an inspiration to e…
