About the Band
Girl Pow-R is the freshest all-girl, pop rock group of girls, ages 11 to 16, who debuted their first original single KRISI on November 24th. The single is accompanied by a full-length music video shot entirely around the city of Toronto.
This group of very talented young girls write music, sing, dance, and play instruments; they are truly an example of a modern, talented band. Girl Pow-R’s sound is rooted in pop rock, with the goal of inspiring others to be their best, through their music and lyrics. Since May 2017, the group has performed over 55 shows gaining fans of all ages! Additionally, their amazing vocals and energetic performances earned Girl Pow-R a 2017 Toronto Independent Music Award Nomination for KRISI, and they won First Place at a Family Channel competition this summer.
Too often, young people are influenced by the thoughts and life experiences of singers and musicians who are in their late teens and their 20’s. It’s time to give young people an alternative to these messages. That is what Girl Pow-R has set out to do.
KRISI has a strong message that the girls in Girl Pow-R are passionate about sharing. The struggles they have experienced personally, and seeing that life changes dramatically in school as we move from childhood into adulthood, has inspired the Girl Pow-R girls to launch this song to help other young people.
The Girl Pow-R band was originally launched in conjunction with International Women’s Day in support of #BeBoldForChange to provide an opportunity for the voices of young women in the pre-teen to early teen years to speak to their peers in a fresh, new voice. The group has a unique mission to inspire young people and to support social causes with their music, positive messages, and age-appropriate lyrics.
This passion has also inspired each and every member of Girl Pow-R to do more, and to actively participate in a social cause. The social causes that Girl Pow-R is passionate about are an extension of this song KRISI.
The girls hope that their audiences will embrace the changes needed to help improve the world and inspire others, and make the world a better place through the messages delivered in the Girl Pow-R songs. In addition to a passion for music, each girl in the group also has a social cause that they represent like advocating for better education for girls all around the world, youth homelessness, or all of us taking better care of our health through the foods that we eat.
