Janet Giannone, CEO of Heart of Empress Promotion & Production, recently received a 'Top Record Label Award' at the third annual Reggae Xclusive Recognition Awards, held in Toronto, Canada.

This is the label's second award to date.

Artistes on the label, Norval Edgehill and Mikey Melody, also received awards.

Heart of Empress Promotion & Production is a Canada-based record label that deals with event promotions and artiste management.

"Heart of Empress is all about having a 'mama earth' vibes, all about coming together and rising together, and about giving a small artiste an opportunity to grow and to get their music out there. The label started in 2012 with the sole purpose of promoting and producing artistes with positive and unique melodies, and its mandate is to build musical bridges from Canada to Jamaica and globally," she shared.

Several Jamaicans are the newest additions to the label. They include Shadrock, Ras Campbell and Bettadayze. Giannone also works closely with Milton V and Donna Makeda.

Soon-to-be-released are new singles from Bettadayze (Your Search Is Over), Ras Campbell (Religion & Politics), Shadrock (Rocky Road) and a Norval Edgehill and Mikey Melody collaboration (Nature Love).

They are also promoting Mikey Melody and Norval Edgehill's new albums.

One of the main goals of Heart of Empress is to bring Canadian reggae artistes to the world.

She explained, "For many years, I've watched the industry and the artistes try and take one another down instead of working with each other to rise up. I see music as a blessing not a competition. If I can help one artiste get out there, I am happy with that."
