She’s a positive teen punk-pop artist, she’s Canadian and she’s coming to Red Deer.

Shiloh, an emerging talent, whose songs have been featured on such TV shows as Gossip Girl and the film, What Happens in Vegas, will be performing at the Memorial Centre on Friday.

The 16-year-old singer/songwriter from Regina tends to sing optimistic songs that encourage young people to be true to themselves. “When kids are growing up in their teens, they look at magazines and think they have to be super skinny and absolutely gorgeous,” says Shiloh. “People need to realize that’s not going to happen because that’s not a real person.”

No one should be told how to dress or how to act, the singer has stated. “You gotta be yourself and be genuine to yourself. Do what’s comfortable for you. Be you.”

Her musical style, described as power-punk-pop-rock, led her to be signed by Universal Music in 2008. Her first single, Operator (A Girl Like Me), reached No. 30 on the Canadian Hot 100 Chart and was featured on MuchDance 2009. Her latest music videos are for Goodbye, You Suck and Alright.

Shiloh was recently nominated for Pop Video of the Year and UR Fave: New Artist at the 2009 MuchMusic Video Awards.

She has performed with Lady Gaga, Hedley, Theory of a Deadman, and Mariana’s Trench. In Red Deer, she will be appearing with special guests The Latency, a B.C. rock band managed by Tommy (Mac) MacDonald of Hedley.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. concert are $21.30 from the Black Knight Ticket Centre.
