Derik John Baker returned to hometown Toronto last week with his band Virginia To Vegas, performing at the iHeartRadio Jingle (Bell) Ball at the ACC on Dec. 9 where he was bushwhacked by the Wax Records team armed with a trio of big shiny awards.


A platinum award for “We Are Stars,” f. Alyssa Reid, and two gold certifications marking the success of “Lights Out” and “Selfish" were presented. VTV’s latest, “Emotions,” is off to a solid start too, Wax Records’ Andrea Guernsey assures.
