Don Sawchuk and The Storm for Guelph’s Drop In Centre.
Don Sawchuk returned to his “busking” roots on Wednesday thanks to Guelph, Ontario’s OHL Team, THE STORM. Don’s song “Underdog” was the theme for the evening and although The Storm had a tough night there is great optimism for the team... Don and The Storm's fans are hoping the Underdogs will be the Top Dogs! Thanks to The Storm’s support Don was able to raise just under $400 for Guelph’s Drop In Centre – a worthy cause indeed. It is anticipated that a concert event will be staged this Fall to salute The Drop In Centre and acknowledge the great work Gail Hoekstra and her team, as well as the Guelph community, do supporting the Drop In Centre. Stay tuned for more updates.

Last year ended off with a bang for Don Sawchuk finishing his tour schedule with a sold out concert at Heritage Hall in Guelph, Ontario followed by a trip to perform for the kids at Montreal’s Shiners Hospital for Children. En Route Don stopped off at a few radio stations namely CJBQ, Belleville delivering his new CD “Underdog” to legendary radio personality Sean Kelly (PD) who was on the air and sounding great!! He also dropped off his complete album package to noted Intelligencer Music Reviewer David Reed along with the song book and some digital download cards. Next stop was Brockville where we had a chance to meet the newly appointed Music Director Wendy Wright (photo inset) at JR FM then onward to Montreal for a Noon Hour Presentation at the Shriners Hospital for Children. It was a jam packed day and on the way home we stopped in at CJSS Rock in Cornwall and met a young fellow who let us in and shared a few words of wisdom. It was a long day and a late night but well worth the effort. We want to thank everyone we met and say a big thank you to “Noble” Joe Johnson Press Corp’s Director and Editor In Chief Rameses Shriners and the newly elected Oriental Guide. Congratulations Joe from all of us!
At 6’ 1” Scott Stephenson comes to Backstage Productions International with a stunning repertoire and voice to match. With today's discoveries often found through an online presence, Scott is no exception. Catching the ear and eye of an European EDM/Dance label, Scott was asked to sing a couple of tracks which will be released later this year. Having been exposed to Scott’s vocal styling through his online presence prompted the label head of Trilogy Records International, Steve Thomson, to ink a deal with Scott which resulted in securing noted Montreal Producer Kay Bustamante. Production for Scott’s debut album begins later this month after Bustamante returns from her Native Chile where she has been promoting her new Album “Fearless” being released by Trilogy Records International and distributed world-wide by The Orchard. “We are pleased to introduce Scott Stephenson as our newest find. We feel he will be a big hit with today’s music fans across the board. We have great prospects for his future and we are delighted to offer a sampling of his vocal talents, courtesy of our friends at LYA. We hope you enjoy the recording.” states Steve Thomson label President.
