Shania Coombs

contact: shania.coombs@nimbusrecording.com

Shania Coombs’ love for music started from a very young age and has continued to be an ever-growing passion. Growing up with a deaf mother, she became well aware of some inconsistent inclusivity within the music industry. With that, she put forth a goal to make the music scene more easily accessible and inclusive, in particular within live shows. She first fostered that goal by building her skill set at Nimbus School of Recording and Media, Graduating from the Music Business program in early 2017.

Since then, Shania has started up her own non-profit that provides live music events, workshops, and classes for the deaf and hard of hearing community. In addition, she has worked as an admin assistant and volunteer coordinator with Chapel Sound and Nancy Lee Productions on various live shows and festivals (CURRENT, Chapel Sound Long Weekend), written music articles and conducted interviews with artists for local media companies, and has provided marketing management for Sons of Granville.

Anthony

contact: anthony@liveacts.ca

Anthony "Aye1ne" Cormier is a Recording Artist from Vancouver Island (Victoria). He was first inspired by music back in 1985 when he was introduced to the sounds of Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5. Growing up in the early 90's, Anthony was introduced to music at a very young age.

Anthony "Aye1ne" has been a Recording Artist in Vancouver since 2011. Performing at many different venues in Vancouver and the surrounding area from Downtown to Chilliwack. While gaining respect along the way from his peers and building solid relationships with people as the years went by, Aye1ne decided to challenge himself and step into a role that he was not familiar with. For a little over 6 months, Aye1ne ran a very popular open mic night in the heart of Downtown Vancouver at the corner of Seymour & Davie Street in 2017. The event itself ran every Wednesday night and proved to be a huge success, having every night end with a full set list of performers. The role itself gave Anthony a look into the position of being an event host/coordinator and allowed him to see the other side of the music industry. Anthony is now looking to take all the knowledge and experience he has learned over the years and apply it to helping out the scene and other local artists in the area gain the proper experience and exposure they need to follow their dreams.

Kevin at Live Acts has helped us put on some our favourite shows to date and has always been there for us as a friend and a business advisor.
— Conan karpinski of little india
Live Acts not only supports the community with competitions like Best in Vancouver, but actively employs a great number of sound techs, administrators, bands, solo artists, and graphics designers for a large number of venues around Vancouver. This offers opportunities to a great deal of creatives in the local community, which I see as a great contribution towards a healthy, vibrant entertainment sector.
— Mike Schroeder CEO of Nimbus School of Recording & Media
In the time that I have known Kevin Schallie, I have found him to be responsible, knowledgeable and a dedicated leader in the Vancouver Indie music scene. Myself, as well as my recording studio the Beat Lab, have been the main sponsor for the Best in Vancouver competition for the past four years. I have been involved with judging and the educational seminars, which I pride myself in being a part of, and have found Kevin to be both organized and professional.
