Growing up in the west side of Toronto, Portuguese-Canadian artist Veronica Domingues always had a passion for music. At the age of 4 she was already singing to her family, but as she grew older, so too would her interest in music. While attending high school she was a member of the choir for 3 years. She performed in shows at her school, but really wanted to accomplish more than what she was already doing.
In 2010, Veronica Domingues was discovered by Jay L.A. Management and began her journey into becoming the soulful songstress she is today. During the year of 2011 Veronica decided it was time to start working on her own independent project. She decided to team up with producer Junia-T and Director/Filmmaker Customatic. “Just Chill”, was released on May 10th, 2013.
After releasing the video for her second track “Keep On” featuring Bubba, Veronica received local as well as international recognition on SingersRoom, a prominent American website. While the applause keeps coming in for “Just Chill”, Veronica has already set out to work on her next project (title and date TBA) and is looking forward to an exciting and busy 2013. “Just Chill” is now available on iTunes and Bandcamp.

PJ “Kingpin” Wilson
If you’re looking for old-time soul, PJ Kingpin Wilson is your man. Born and raised in the city of Barrie, PJ fell in love with the old sounds of Motown as a young boy. “My parents always played Smokey Robinson and Marvin Gaye in the house. It’s an era I revisit all the time when it comes to my music.” Inspired by his own father singing at church, PJ enrolled in vocal lessons and began his quest for music.
In high school, he experimented with different sounds. Working with local rap groups, to school choirs and bands, PJ was determined to have his silky smooth voice heard. In 2011, a chance meeting with Juno award-winning producer Chris Perry, led to a series of recording sessions that brought to life his first three-track E.P. entitled “Preface”. The year after, PJ would continue to write and record but mostly spent the time developing his songwriting skills. “When I write, it’s usually about love and relationships. I’m a very positive spirit and it’s important that I illustrate that in my songs and in the way that I perform.” Always striving for more, he would drive into Toronto every week to perform in the open-mic circuit in order to fine-tune his sound.
“Ultimately, I want my music to make audiences feel inner happiness. When they hear it, they are inspired to feel something and they know they are not alone in their situation. I want to be relatable as an artist.” Embarking on an infectious musical journey where a revived sound of Motown and R&B will come alive, PJ Wilson is all smiles as he continues to draw in audiences with his soulful, never-ending, timeless tunes.
