If you’re like my wife and listen to top-40 radio, you’ve likely heard of Derik Baker – a.k.a. Virginia to Vegas. The 24-year old, emerging pop star from Toronto has a story similar to Justin Beiber. Like the more famous southern Ontario native, Baker was discovered on YouTube by Wax Records in 2013 and a star was born. Not surprisingly, his first single was titled, “We Are Stars”, which features pop sensation and fellow label mate Alyssa Reid. The track has received a lot of airplay on top-40 radio stations.
On Tuesday, November 11, Baker will release his debut EP, Volume 1. In addition to “We Are Stars”, it features other mainstream pop songs like “Colourful”, “Don’t Fight the Music”, and “Last of the Fighters”. For fans of Maroon 5 and Katy Perry, get to know Virginia to Vegas, who is headed for stardom with catchy, cheery pop tunes. And for residents in Quebec and Ontario, you can catch him on tour with Alyssa Reid now. Tour dates are below.
