Courtney Parker has an amazing voice and stage presence. Early in
2007, she began songwriting and recording with producer Jim Stoeber
at Tegancat Music, and her debut solo album, Keep this real, was
released in June, 2007.
One of the songs from the album, "Nobody any good," is featured on
Listen, a Tegancat Music "various artists" CD released in May 2007.
Influenced by much of main stream radio by artists such as Michelle
Branch and Fergie, Courtney's style is a well blended mix of pop, rock
and r&b that delivers with powerful emotion and well crafted lyrics. Her
live performance consists of a mix of cover tunes and originals. As well
as playing gigs with her band, for "unplugged" performances she has
worked out a great acoustic set with guitarist Jim Stoeber.
Courtney's passion for singing started at a very young age when she
began taking Musical Theatre classes from a prominent Winnipeg dance
and music studio. She has studied at the University of Manitoba School
of Music and has recently attended the Randolph Academy of Performing
Arts in Toronto.
