In September 2003, as befits a national institution, Kenny Shields and Streetheart were inducted into the Western Canadian Music Hall of Fame. Streetheart was labelled Canada’s #1 touring band for many years running. The group recorded a total of six studio albums and one double live album. They topped the Canadian charts with a non-stop string of hits including "Action", "Hollywood", "Under My Thumb", "Look In Your Eyes", "What Kind of Love Is This", "One More Time" and "Snow White" – all tunes that remain standards on radio playlists to this day. Along the way they earned a total of six gold albums, four platinum albums, a gold single, two Ampex Golden Reel Awards, a Music Express Award, a Peoples' Choice voted Most Popular Canadian Act and a Juno. Val Halla was born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan – the heartland of the Canadian prairies, to a Hot Air Balloon pilot, fiddle playing father, and a motorcycle riding, visual artist mother. The cold harsh winters, coupled with humble prairie life, led Val to develop a wild imagination and a deep love of music. At the age of 5 she was playing the piano and wrote her first song. By the time she was 11, Val had just started learning songs of the 90’s grunge movement, playing on an old nylon string classical guitar her grandfather had given to her mother. After a few years of lessons focusing on grunge and rock n roll, Val’s guitar teacher was finally able to persuade her parents to buy her an electric guitar. Now 29, she has traveled all over North America, opening for everyone from Ted Nugent and Alice Cooper, to Eric Burdon and Burton Cummings. Val Halla is planning a new release for the summer of 2014, and a subsequent tour of Canada and the U.S. She is had made a reputation through her guitar playing, powerful voice, and overall classic style of songwriting that audiences both young and old latch onto.
