Brisbane, Australia, September 12, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Musicadium artist, Czarina, recently participated in New Artists to Radio (NA2R) competition and wowed her way into the top 30.
New Artists to Radio (NA2R) is a competition for unsigned, independent acts aching for commercial radio airplay, nationwide exposure and the chance to perform in front of radio programmers, music directors and music industry professionals.
Though Czarina did not place in the top 9 just recently announced, she made it into the top 30 which is making Czarina beam like she placed first!
Czarina literally means the wife of a Russian Czar. This sums her music up perfectly; powerful, regal, sweet and beautiful, just like the woman herself.
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia via the Philippines, Czarina first entered Melbourne's R'n'B scene back in 2002. But music has been running through her veins since she was a child. Through joining various choirs and even a family band at age 16, Czarina gained more insight into her love for creating music. She even formed part of a vocal group where she arranged the harmonies. This increased exposure to music led her to obtaining support slots for touring Filipino artists, gaining Czarina a strong reputation in the Filipino community. She even sang on Channel 9's program, 'Starstruck', in 2000, performing a version of Monica's, 'Angel of Mine'.
All this finally led to Czarina hitting the studio and recording her own original songs. Working with some of Australia's hottest producers, singers, dancers and MC's at the time, Czarina began to stamp her mark on the scene with her smooth, melodic and catchy R'n'B/pop tunes through her energetic and sexy live performances in some of Melbourne's hottest clubs, including The Next Blue, Saratoga, Club Odeon and Club Matrix.
After taking some time off to get married and have a beautiful baby boy, Czarina decided to follow her heart and get back into her music. Linking with producer, Damion (of MobHitz Entertainment), the two have found an unmistakable musical chemistry. Now that she has become more 'in tune' with herself being the grown and more experienced woman that she is, the timing couldn't be better for Czarina to get back into the scene, especially as Australia's R'n'B climate is relatively dry and in serious need of quenching.
Being influenced by the likes of Janet Jackson, Usher, Mya, Aaliyah and Justin Timberlake, her new musical direction is more an extension of her old self, rather than an entirely new path. Czarina has written all the songs for her album demo and has been hard at work in the studio with Damion recording and polishing off the project.
This year is going to be a very interesting one for this talented singer/songwriter and dancer, especially as her album demo gains more exposure via digital distribution with Musicadium and the buzz really begins to kick off. Czarina now has a more mature approach to her music which will sit well with the public.
