Smooth as Butter

If you didn't already know, the Big White video below was filmed by local talent and pal Matt Butterworth. Sure the video is out-of-season, but any chance to watch local Casey Groves kill it at home is a good thing

Big White is open! The winter has kicked off and whats more appropriate than what could be the craziest video ever produced. Above is a Youtube video explaining simply what it is. Follow the link below to witness the madness

Big White Is Officially Open for The Season!

Over 4000 skiers and boarders attended the Big White season opening this year. That's over double last years numbers setting a new first day record. I feel a phenomenal season coming on.

Okanagan Media Real Estate Video Tours

Okanagan Media is a marketing firm that specializes is High Definition Real Estate Visual Tours. The days of the "virtual tour" and the dreaded picture slide show is over! Welcome to the evolution of the REAL walkthrough.

Did you know that 84% of homebuyers use the internet and video tours as a resource when they are searching for a new home, and only 33% attend open houses. Once you have an Okanagan Media Video Tour, you have created a 24/7 online open house that buyers can conveniently experience from their home or office computer.

Okanagan Media Video Tours allow buyers to quickly determine if they are interested in taking the next step of making an appointment to go out and visit a property, which saves both your time and theirs. Buyers who have taken a video tour before they arrive already have a general idea of what they are going to see, and are often more focused and prepared to do business. Buyers who don't use video tours spend an average of three times longer with a realtor before making a purchase decision.

Kelowna Artist Makes His Mark In Japan

UMIKEBU (pronounced OO-MEE-KEH-BOO) is a Japanese pop group formed in Japan by two members. One of them is Hiroumi Takatsuka from rural, southern Japan. The other member is Kevin Crocker, from Kelowna, B.C. Canada.

UMIKEBU's sound is a little bit of everything. With strong influences from electronica acts like BT, Hybrid, Chicane and ATB to alternative groups such as Coldplay, Gorillaz and Supercar, It's hard to nail this group to a specific genre.

Kevin Crocker, the band's producer has coined the genre "Orchestronic" blending together the melodic sounds of electronica with the emotional, smooth sounds of strings.

They have finished their first music video "Constant" Sung entirely in Japanese, this song is sure to be the first single off their forthcoming album.

Let us know if you or anyone you know is an up and coming artist. We want to here from you!
