Caleb Hart ‘11’ Album Release featuring Track7 Music with special guests: Josh Sahunta & Xavier Edwardz.
No matter how many changes the music industry experiences, the one thing that always remains, is the power of a passionate live show. Caleb Hart has the ability to bring something fresh, honest and powerful every time he steps on a stage. A natural born performer since he was a young boy growing up in the small Caribbean island of Tobago; Hart has been taking his music across Canada and around the world to Australia, USA, New Zealand, Europe, Africa & the Caribbean full time for the past 6 years playing almost 900 shows. From his inception as Bravehart to his success with Tasman Jude, Caleb Hart has also managed to win prestigious awards from Edmonton Folk Fest, the Western Canadian Music Awards and much more.
With 5 Records under his belt, including chart topping albums with his former band Tasman Jude, Hart promises that his 6th release ‘11’ alongside Trinidadian super Producer Aaron ‘Track7’ Peters will be the best portrayal of music and showmanship that he has ever delivered. The ‘fam’ (as he calls his fans) are in for a treat.
Joining Caleb Hart & Track7 on the ‘11’ Album Release Tour will be Albertan R&B singer/songwriter Josh Sahunta, "When it comes to setting the bar high, Canadian r&b-pop artist Josh Sahunta never lets his feet touch the ground. The self-taught multi-instrumentalist and singer uniquely positions himself as a songwriter with substance. Drawing upon his influences of John Mayer, Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd, Josh's songwriting is packed with deeply rich narratives and cool, contemporary soundscapes. Josh was recently nominated for two Edmonton Music Awards (Male Artist of the Year, and R&B/Soul Recording of the Year) and for a Western Canadian Music Award for "Urban Artist of the Year".
“Josh Sahunta is one of those creative prodigies who excels at absolutely everything he touches.” – BK On The Scene"
Tobagonian Soul Hop artiste Xavier Edwardz “Rather than explain to you the essence of my artistry, why not just come with me on one my my journeys…”
Jamaican drummer JD Johnson and Toronto based TrinBagonian Photographer/Videographer Joshua Telfer there to capture it all.

THE LEG-UP PROGRAM
A BIG band bringing back BIG sound with horns, percussion, and an onslaught of talented vocalists & musicians. This 17-piece original Funk, Soul, RnB orchestra comes straight out of Victoria sounding like Motown meets Roots meets the Golden Age of Hip Hop. At times, they are a soul band with raspy lead vocals and beautifully sculpted harmonies; at times, they are a funk band with a wild horn section and groovy bass and drums; at times they are a hip hop group with catchy hooks and heavy beats; and at times, they are sweet and sultry, keeping the audience lit up with the sweetest of ballads. This group simply loves to make music and making people move! It’s safe to say, this band does it all—the danciest party you ever dance-partied!
Did you ever wonder what a 90s disco-rave Barbara Streisand dealing with her inner demons looks like on stage? Henrietta Dubét’s deprecating comedy paired with a sassy delivery is the perfect balance of endearing and cringeworthy humour - no wonder people keep asking her to get on the mic!
