Vancouver Island-raised indie pop artist Alexandria Maillot has already developed a wealth of experiences and an impressive resumé at a young age.

Maillot, who will perform Dec. 16 at Joe’s Garage in Courtenay, has showcased her talents to audiences overseas in Egypt and Romania, been featured on Virgin Radio’s Best of BC program as well as ourstage.com and MTV’s Needle in the Haystack feature.

She won the 2011 Sure Copy Youth Artist of the Year Award at the Vancouver Island Music Awards as well as the We Are Listening Singer/Songwriter Awards (based in London); had her song picked up by American Airlines In-Flight Entertainment reaching over 500,000 travellers as well as been featured throughout all Six Flags National Theme Parks for their New Music Hour.

As if this weren’t enough, Maillot caught the attention of impresario David Foster, earning her a spot on stage with famed singer Jann Arden during a televised concert in Toronto.

Alexandria’s most recent successes include receiving second place in the BC Musician Songwriting Magazine, and she is currently featured on Oprah Winfrey’s website as part of Oprah’s Search for the World’s Smartest and Most Talented Kids section.

One of her original songs, Revolution, was picked up by Universal Music in Europe and appears on the debut album by Swiss recording artist Stefanie Heinzmann. The song was the third single (with an accompanying video) from Stefanie’s album Master plan, which went gold in Germany and Switzerland and was Top 10 in the EU.

In 2009, Alexandria was chosen as one of the Top 20 artists/bands out of 450 applicants in British Columbia to be a part of the inaugural The Peak Performance Project, a $5.29-million plan designed to kick start the international music careers of three emerging B.C. artists every year for the next seven years.

The project is administered by the Music BC Industry Association and funded by 100.5 The PEAK through CRTC approved Canadian Content Development Funding.

On a side note, Alexandria made her acting debut in Catherine Hardwicke’s major motion picture Red Riding Hood, starring alongside Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman.

Keep an eye out for Alexandria Maillot’s debut album, Just Another Girl, which will be released in the early new year.

Alexandria will be joined Dec. 16 at Joe’s by Joey Clarkson and Brodie Dawson, both wonderful local talents with a great talent and showmanship.

The kitchen opens at 6 p.m. for the evening, with the show scheduled for 8:30. $15 advance tickets are available at Bop City Records.
