CTV Unveils Remaining THE LAUNCH Season 1 Mentors and Aspiring Artists’ Episode Pairings

Following the previously announced broadcast details for Episode 1 headlined by international musical icon Shania Twain and award-winning producer/songwriter busbee, a staggering roster of musical A-listers join Borchetta as mentors in the series’ additional episodes. All are paired with groups of five previously announced emerging artists per episode as follows:
OneRepublic frontman and acclaimed producer/songwriter Ryan Tedder and Grammy Award-winner and co-founder of country-pop duo Sugarland Jennifer Nettles are on hand to mentor:

  • Basil Phoenix – the R&B and hip-hop artist from The Pas, Manitoba, started writing songs and instrumental beats as a teen and has since amassed a strong following on Instagram.
  • Divine Lightbody – the R&B, soul, hip-hop, pop, and reggae singer and multi-instrumentalist from Brampton, Ont., has received more than 14,000 hits just months after launching her YouTube™ channel.
  • Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine – the “x” in their name is pronounced “and”, but it also represents the multiplying effect the instrumentalist/composer Elijah and lyricist/vocalist Jamie have on one another.
  • JP Maurice – this pop/rock/alt-country artist from Vancouver’s first EP Girls sweeps from cinematic pop-noir into slinky neo soul with powerfully emotive vocals.
  • LITEYEARS – the high-energy, alt-pop group of four meshes programmed electronic loops, ethereal keyboards, and melodic guitar counterpoint with organic instrumentation for a unique and refreshing sound.
