Montreal indie artist Bayla, born Brittany Kwasnik, is the Grand Prize winner in Canada’s Walk of Fame 7th annual RBC Emerging Musicians program and showcases at Toronto’s Great Hall on November 7 and at the event gala on the 23rd.
The win comes with a cash prize of $20,000, recording time at Metalworks Studios, album art cover design, networking opportunities with music industry pros, plus an appearance at the gala Nov. 23 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
The Grand Prize winner and indie-pop songstress describes the start of her musical career as anything but easy, but her determination and passion pushed her to move forward. “Growing up, I never thought I’d be able to pursue my dreams. I was told by doctors that I’d never been able to sing due to a vocal cord dysfunction.”
