Canadian Pop singer VAN entered the musical landscape in 2017 with her debut chart-topping single LOCK MY LOVE DOWN and quickly garnered acclaim for her distinct blend of catchy tropical pop with a soulful gritty vocal tone. This quality, paired with her stunning looks, places her as a strong contender for pop music’s next breakout songstress. Lock my love down made its way up to #26 on Billboards (Nielsen BDS) CANADA CHR/TOP 40 NATIONAL AIRPLAY CHART and led VAN to be named the iHeartRadio Future Star for the month of September 2017. Her second single, A-OK, recently came out at the end of March 2018 and is featured on several playlists of many different music platforms. VAN is currently getting a lot of visibility on the international musical scene.

Although VAN has known since the age of 5 that singing was her true passion, her natural charisma led her to explore other avenues throughout her youth. By the age of 9, she had been scouted for a number of ad campaigns for the likes of Canadian Tire and Mike’s Restaurant chain. She also appeared in several music videos for artists such as Scottish rock band Snow Patrol. While these appearances showed signs of a budding acting career, VAN stuck to her gut and pursued her first passion, music. Through performing gigs at music festivals in her hometown of St. Eustache and beyond, this led to a session with Canadian production team Tino Izzo and Max Izzo.
