24 November 2017 Releases: Kayla Diamond, Julien Brody…

Albums this week range from 12-year-old aspiring opera singer Julien Brody and his Christmas album Peace, Love and Opera to 83-year-old legend Jean-Pierre Ferland and La vie m’émeut, l’amour m’étonne. It’s a diverse batch in terms of style. A standout, and one of the best pop releases of the year, is debut mini album Beautiful Chaos from Toronto’s Kayla Diamond. Her song “Carnival Hearts” received some radio spins this year. Kayla was studying to be a lawyer; we’re glad she made the switch to a music career. Find a list of 15 LPs and 5 EPs/mini albums below. We leave you with “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” from the aforementioned Julien.
