Getting discovered by David Foster seems to do nothing but good for a young artist's career - case in point: Greg Sczebel. The British Columbia artist has already picked up a Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for his track "Here To Stay", and more recently nabbed a Juno for Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year for his debut full-length of the same name.
He's also the proud owner of two CGMA awards, and received a nod at the Canadian Urban Music Awards for the song "You Got It". Adding to the pile of accolades, Sczebel is up for five Shai Awards (the Canadian Gospel Music awards), including Male Soloist, Contemporary/Pop Album, Urban/Soul Album, Artist, and Song of the Year. Vote at www.shaiawards.com.
Taking some time away from awards shows, Sczebel will be touring across Canada for the next few months in support of "Here To Stay". He's heading from British Columbia to Nova Scotia, and hitting just about everything in between. Up next for the singer is a performance in Three Hills, Alberta, on April 15th.
Check out Sczebel's soulful voice by listening to a few clips at his web site: www.gregsczebel.com. You can also read an interview with this wunderkind in the "Features" section of the Soul Shine web site.
