Already a chart-topping, platinum-selling artist in Canada, the pop entertainer Johnny Reid will release his first album in the U.S., entitled Introducing Johnny Reid, on May 3rd, 2011, via EMI/Manhattan Records. Two of his most popular hits in Canada -- "Today I'm Gonna Try and Change The World" and "Let's Go Higher" -- will be available for download on March 8th. You have a chance to see what all the Canadian fuss is about.
Fans can get a first glimpse of Johnny in action when his first TV special Heart & Soul: Live, filmed at his final concert in Canada in Fall 2010, begins airing on local public television stations throughout March during the station's pledge drive campaigns.

"From a young age, I listened to all kinds of music," Reid said in a statement. "My mother was a big fan of Stax and Detroit soul. My father was a big fan of all music as long as it told a story. I have taken the instrumentation, performance, and energy of soul and annexed that with storytelling of things that really matter in this world: family, love, and friendship."
Reid, a native of Lanark, Scotland, who moved to Canada at age 13, has released five best-selling albums in Canada. Many of the songs on 2010's A Place Called Love, which topped the Canadian album chart in September 2010, appear on Introducing Johnny Reid. The album's massive success drew the attention of EMI/Manhattan Records, which signed Reid in 2010.
In addition, Johnny is nominated for 4 JUNO Awards (Canada's Grammy) including Album & Artist of The Year and the Fan's Choice Award. To vote for Johnny, fans can go here. The JUNO Awards will take place March 27th in Toronto, ON.
