K Comp Vol. 1 album released in Kelowna

  • Feb. 22, 2011 6:00 p.m.

Kelowna’s Classic Rock station K96.3 has announced the release of K Comp Vol. 1 – a compilation CD made up of 12 of the Okanagan’s most up and coming artists.

The 12 artists from around the Okanagan that were chosen to appear on K Comp Vol. 1 were Precision, DSD, Matt Stanley and the Decoys, Patrick Kelly, Trinity’s Tattoo, Aspen Switzer, Ange Alero, Windborn, Thomas Kjorven, Cassidy Wethal, We Are the City, and Fields of Green.

K Comp Vol. 1 is only the first in a series of emerging artist compilations yet to come from K96.3 and Music BC.

K96.3 will be doing on-air and live on location giveaways to get the coveted compilation CD into the public’s hands but fans can also get a copy of K Comp Vol. 1 from any of the artists featured on the disc.

“It’s so exciting to see my name on the sleeve of the first K Comp along with 11 other great local artists,” said Ange Alero upon receiving his batch of K Comp Vol. 1 discs. “I would encourage any emerging artists to apply for this year’s K Comp because it’s such a great opportunity for development and exposure. I’ll be at Bar One this Friday handing out autographed copies so get ‘em while they’re hot!” 

Unlike other compilation CDs, K96.3’s K Comp gives Okanagan artists the chance to apply to be part of the disc. All applications are then adjudicated by a group of music industry professionals and narrowed down to 12 artists who will appear on the K Comp.

Being part of K96.3’s K Comp is only one of the perks for artists as they also take part in career development series presented by Music BC where they will receive insider tips and mentoring from some of today’s leading music industry professionals. K Comp artists are also given performance opportunities around the Okanagan through partnerships with Festivals Kelowna, the Downtown Kelowna Association, and other live music venues in the Interior.

2010 marked the beginning of an incredibly exciting long term partnership between K96.3 Kelowna’s Classic Rock and Music BC and is an ongoing part of K96.3 Kelowna’s Classic Rock’s commitment towards the development of the next generation of local artists.

Applications for K Comp Vol. 2 will open on June 4 so stay tuned to K96.3 Kelowna’s Classic Rock station for more information.
