ESTEEMED SINGER AND SONGWRITER SIGNS RECORDING DEAL WITH WARNER MUSIC CANADA
(TORONTO, ON) Warner Music Canada is thrilled to announce the addition of Chantal Kreviazuk to its roster of artists.
Chantal’s first single with the record label, “Into Me,” will be serviced to radio and available at all digital retailers this Friday, October 9. Chantal, one of Canada’s premiere artists, is currently working on completing her new, as yet-untitled studio album. The album, set for release this spring, will be the sixth studio release of her career and her first in six years. More information on the album will be announced over the coming months.
“We are delighted to welcome Chantal to the family,” says Steve Kane, President, Warner Music Canada. “Chantal is unparalleled as a songwriter and performer. She is a national treasure and we are honoured to work with her.”
“I was writing all the time, but I didn’t feel the need to add to return to my solo career unless it was a departure and reflected my growth as a human being,” says Chantal. “And I wanted to stay close to the nest. My young children needed me and there is only so much leasing space for love. Now they are busy in their lives and I am compelled to sing more and connect more with my audience once again. It’s been a very organic process!”

Chantal – the three-time Juno Award winner – has spent the last few years focused on raising her three sons with husband Raine Maida, as well as her other musical passion, crafting songs. Most recently, Chantal has written for Drake (“Over My Dead Body”), Pitbull (“Feel This Moment”) and Jay Rock (“Pay For It”) –which she performed alongside Jay Rock and Kendrick Lamar on Saturday Night Live last November. She has also penned tracks for Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson, Josh Groban and Carrie Underwood.
Last month, Chantal and Raine became members of the Order of Canada, recognizing their efforts to raise awareness and support for numerous causes, including human and animal rights, mental health, education and the environment. Chantal has been an ambassador to War Child for 16 years and one of the organization’s founding artists. She is also a proud supporter of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Polar Bears International , First Nations People, Sick Kids Hospital and Children’s Hospital Foundation in Winnipeg.
