By FYI Staff

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.

In the photo is the Wax Records team, the DMD guys and iHeartRadio topper Rob Farina.  And, of course, Virginia to Vegas’s Derik Baker.

The Beaches Bring "Blame Brett" to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Following the viral success of "Blame Brett" in 2023, The Beaches have made their late night TV debut, performing their naming-and-blaming single on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Though the Toronto band has been together for a decade, winning a 2018 Juno for Breakthrough Artist following their debut album, last yearmarked a watershed moment for the quartet. They traded their heavier rock sound for sleek new wave guitar tones and took back control of their career, deciding to release their new album, Blame My Ex, independently. (They co-wrote the album with Canadian artist and songwriter Lowell, who also has a credit on Beyoncé's newest hit.)
