Hailing from Massachusetts, Reyome relocated to PEI in 2016 to pursue music. Reyome?s debut single Cross My Heart was recorded and produced by Colin Buchanan and Erin Costelo. With inspiration from Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, and Janis Joplin, they bring old school vibes to the new times.
Dennis MacKenzie – The Guardian Angel Platoon CD & Pin
The Guardian Angel Platoon is Dennis MacKenzies debut album and is about his time in the military. The album tells the true story of a young, Island, soldier as he leaves home for training, deploys to Afghanistan, deals with loss and after returning home continues to lose friends and comrades to suicide and the invisible wounds of war.
Today Dennis uses music and songwriting as a way to heal and overcome his internal battles and struggles and hopes to use this album to help raise money to fund and create music programs for veterans.
