Following in the footsteps of artists like John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Dalton Cyr is “self-made.” Lennon and McCartney would sit in their bedroom and write songs and believed in getting as many hours of live performance as possible to perfect their craft. They didn’t sound exactly like what was currently on the radio, but instead gave their own unique perspective to their music.
Much like the Lennon/McCartney era, Dalton Cyr is taking the same approach to his music. He works continuously on his songwriting and performance skills, honing his craft. He’s chosen to give his own fresh spin on the pop rock world and it is evident that fans are welcoming the change.

Having recently attended The Prodigy Camp just outside Seattle, Washington, Dalton Cyr was chosen as one of the most promising songwriters in the world. He went to work with songwriting mentors Noah Gundersen and Kris Orlowski as others had gone before him. But when he got there with the three songs he’d written to work on, his mentors had nothing to add, saying his songs didn’t need their help. This should tell you something about the caliber of writing this young man puts out…and at the time of camp he was still only 12 years old.
18 year old singer-songwriter, guitarist, Aston Creed from South Africa, has been labeled a Rockstar prodigy who is way beyond his years. Performing with his family band, “Not Fragile” from the early age of 11, he has hosted some of South Africa’s biggest Biker Rallies, performed in various Theatre Productions and was in the top 100 for both “South Africa’s Got Talent” and ” Idols SA”.
In addition to these achievements, at age 12, he was a guest performer at Sun City Super Bowl, which is home to top international artists.
Aston also won the Yamaha Young Talent Competition for the first song he ever wrote and recorded himself: “Guns Down”- an anti- violence, anti -war song.

His song, “Tonight”, was chosen and features on the “Rocking for Rhinos” CD to help raise money and awareness to protect our rhinos from extinction.
