Eurodance band using Canada’s capital as its name

Capital Sound was a Canadian Eurodance band from OttawaOntario. It is the capital city of Canada and the genesis for their name. From here this fantastic Eurodance group started their very short life.

The group’s core members, all of whom were billed only by single names in the band, were vocalists Nathalie (Page) and Katt (Céline Guindon) and keyboardists Baby/Bit Burn (Martin Brunet) and Morgan.

Paolo Iovannone, credited as “Rocko T. Bello”, was also a frequent songwriting collaborator, and was billed as a featured artist on some of the band’s singles, but was not an official band member.

Facts That You Should Know

I listened a lot to them back in the days because their music was on the radio over here. They only lasted for 2 years before moving on. Maybe there was a bigger drama than we know.

Capital Sound released their first tune in 1994

The very first song from Capital Sound came out in 1994. Higher Love delivered a fantastic tune in perfect Eurodance style from Canada. Their debut album, Sussex Drive, was produced by Michel Picard and released in 1994.

Capital Sound got Nominated

The Capital Sound band won the Juno Award for Best Dance Recording according to Wikipedia site for the single “Higher Love (Club Mix)” at the Juno Awards of 1995

Then they released another single, “In the Night (Club Mix)” which was nominated alongside it in the same category. Additional awards included the Cheer DJ Pool award in the 1995 Top Canadian Dance/Club Artist category and Quebec’s Record Pool’s Best New Dance Group in 1994.

Nathalie left the band following Sussex Drive to pursue a solo career and was replaced by Donna (Pearson) on the band’s 1996 album And the Party Goes On.

If this Eurodance band had continued their journey they would have become huge. The beat, rhythm, and singing are all perfectly made. Capital Sound could have been any European Eurodance group for sure. It is said that they didn’t last long. But they existed long enough to release some tunes that are way too underrated.
