1. Stella Rhymes (Australia)
Born and bred in Sydney, Stella Rhymes is a triple threat – singing, rapping and writing to the beat of her hometown. Growing up, she’s taken the stage in front of crowds large and small with fierce interpretations of big hip hop/soul hits. Passionate about pin-up culture but is certainly no 1950’s housewife – this songstress scribes for the modern woman or her “LOL’s/Ladies on Liquor” as she affectionately calls them. Recently releasing her debut single “Lullaby” on iTunes and all major online distributors, Stella Rhymes explains “it’s a song I wrote as a reminder to let go and put to bed our first world problems, remember who we really are and reconnect with each other and our planet”. Choosing to launch her single and music video by hosting a successful UV Glow Party to coincide with Earth Hour, the world’s largest mass participation event this year raising awareness for the grim future of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, proves that this unsigned artist has her finger on the pulse and heart firmly set on a large global audience. These days you’ll find Rhymes in The Intellectunes studio recording original cocktails of hip hop mixed with dance-pop as she gets ready to serve you a taste!

4. Jessica Zraly (Canada)
Jessica Zraly is an emerging young Canadian recording artist with a very big voice! With influences from the likes of Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and Etta James, Jessica’s singing ability is way beyond her years.

Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Jessica has appeared in a number of events already including securing a top spot and performing on the hit show Canada’s Got Talent 2012. Jessica was chosen out of the thousands of applicants across British, Columbia by the well known judges Martin Short, Measha Brueggergosman, and Stephan Moccio. Her presence on the popular social media outlet YouTube has created a huge following for Jessica for some of the cover songs that she has recorded and she has gained international attention for these videos. She was recently the special guest performer alongside Emerton Records CEO and Canadian top 40 artist MARIKA in the Miss World Canada 2012 pageant at River Rock Show Theatre.
