Biography[edit]

Stott grew up on her family farm in rural Manitoba, her father was a saxophonist and pianist. She started singing in the church choir at Brandon Calvary Temple when she was just three years old. She first gained prominence as a country singer at the Dauphin Country Fest in 1994. In 1999, she signed with Warner Music Canada and her first self-titled CD was released in 2000. This album prompted the single "Black Is Black" which quickly became a hit on country radio and television.[1] She was also nominated for a Juno Award for Best New Solo Artist.[2]

After a few years away from the spotlight, Stott returned with a more adult pop sound and her first single, "Paper Rain", reached No. 1 on the Canadian Singles Chart chart. On March 8, 2005, her second album, Chasing the Sky, was released. It included "Paper Rain" and follow up singles "Homeless Heart" and "She'll Get Over It".[3]

Stott performed on July 1, 2005 as part of the Canada Day celebrations, taking place on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. In the summer of 2005 she toured Canada with fellow female Canadian singers Keshia Chante, Christine Evans and Cassie Steele. In December 2005 she was a part of the Holiday Train cross-Canada tour along with Wayne Rostad and the Moffatts.

She was a featured singer in the travelling Cirque du Soleil arena show called Delirium, touring North America.[4]
