End of the Lonely Road

Steven Taetz has just released his first solo full-length album, including roots/folk/pop material co-written with artists from across Canada. The material was created as a labour of love, a northern song cycle, and as a Canadian songbook.

Steven Taetz is a singer/songwriter originally from Toronto who has charted internationally. His performances across North America including Carnegie Hall, the Rogers Stadium, major arts festivals and top roots venues have sold out. He has recently relocated to NYC.

After several years of being a featured artist on electronic dance music tracks, his new material is a return to his acoustic "roots," with folk-pop material co-written with a different Juno-winning artist from each province in Canada. This project has already received several awards and was partially funded by the Government of Canada. A member of the press recently compared the material to Emmylou Harris and saying it reminded him of Brandi Carlile, Willie Nelson, and k.d. lang.

Steven will perform live on World Pride Toronto 2014 Stage. proudly presents you Mr. Steven Taetz and his new single "End of the Lonely Road."


Wahl Collins & Angie Baby

When musician James Collins told composer Alan O'Day that he wanted to cover O’Day’s song "Angie Baby" (originally recorded by Helen Reddy), O’Day said, "If you get “Angie Baby” covered up in Canada, I'll gladly treat you to dinner the next time you're in LA."

Sadly, O’Day died of cancer a few months later and before Collins was able to get the recording completed. And Collins never got to share the great results with O’Day. Once the song was recorded, Collins sent it to O’Day's best friend who raved, "This is awesome, James. Alan would've loved it!"
Wahl Collins (Jeff Wahl and James Collins) is a Canadian pop/rock duo based in Toronto, Canada. Their debut single is a cover of the # 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit, "Angie Baby."
Wahl and Collins met on a film set in the fall of 2012 and, both having a passion for the film and music industry, quickly became fast friends.  They also share a love of retro music from the ‘50s through the ‘70s.  Together they became Wahl Collins.

Wahl Collins' debut single, "Angie Baby" is now available on iTunes.
