"The Review comparing J-Lo's new release to Selena 7tySIx)"

"(Jennifer) Lopez sounds as bored as the listeners. It's like she popped by the studio in between a photo shoot and Versace shopping spree. If there's any justice, Canadian radio will flock to one of its own instead - Selena 7tySix drops a fresh, funky debut with "This Girl's Life." The tunes are catchy, she has a superb voice and she can play an instrument." - The Review

"McMaster Students' Union"

From the catchy, bouncy beats, to the sensuous vocals and beautiful
lyrics, Selena’s debut R&B album is good enough to get anyone onto the dance floor. The album begins on a solid note: one of the first songs, “Ooh Baby,” hooks the listener with its groovy 80s pop beats. This is followed by “Lifesong,” a beautiful song about the loveliness of everyday life, which is Selena’s first commercial single.
With her ability to merge so many different sounds—jazz, pop, R&B, flamenco, reggae, and even dance—it’s no wonder Selina’s career is growing so quickly. Although clearly inspired by artists like Alicia Keys and Sheryl Crow, Selena is already as good as either of these. The album is filled with sensuous grooves and heavy beats that will fill any listener with blissful warmth and playfulness.
You’ll find yourself wishing this album, like that feeling, would go on and on.
- Lisa Knapp

Selena Evangeline is, without question, a world class singer. The sounds of Ella Fitzgerald, Chaka Khan, Prince and Stevie Wonder helped shape the musician she is today. As a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, her songs are musical snapshots of real life and emotions, from a real woman. Those "snapshots" helped to win her an Ontario Independent Music Award for Best Urban, Barrie New Music Award as well as honorable mention in the John Lennon Song Writing Competition. Her debut album "This Girl's Life" was featured on CTV's "Da Kink In My Hair" and her single "Lifesong" received heavy rotation on Canadian airwaves as well as MuchVibe and MTV1

By way of her travels though various countries, Selena has shared the stage with Sheila E., Patrice Rushen, Jocelyn Brown, The Nylons, Delta Goodrem, Ivete Sangalo, Latin Grammy winner Maia and the list goes on. Currently, you can find her on stage backing Canadian icon Amanda Marshall.

Selena’s second release, “Bad Weather”, is a blend of R&B/Soul, Jazz, Pop, Funk and even a little classic sounding rock — a sound that she likes to call "Alternative R&B". Like the woman, the album is sophisticated yet fun, beautifully intricate and at the same time uncomplicated. "This album is an extension of myself and my influences. So much went into the creation of this project and I want listeners to hear that — the joy, the pain and everything in between. It's not just about a pretty voice. I want to take them on a tour of my world as I see it....for better or worse".
