BIOGRAPHY - LUANNE ASTA

Music has played a major role in Luanne Asta’s life since she was a child living the small northern Canadian town of Swan River, Manitoba — she has followed her passion wherever it has taken her, whether that was just a few hours away from home or all the way to New York City.  Asta trained classically at the Royal Conservatory of Music for 15 years, winning her first national award at the age of 10. It wasn’t long before her talent brought her south, first to the city of Brandon, Manitoba, to continue her study with renowned vocal teacher Sylvia Richardson. At the same time, she was hired by the Winnipeg Jets NHL and CFL Winnipeg BlueBombers to sing the national anthems at home games in Winnipeg, a city more than two hours away. An eventual relocation to Winnipeg was inevitable; she spent one year in there before moving again, this time westward, to Kelowna, British Columbia, where she began attending business school, temporarily putting her music career on hold. Eventually, Asta ended up in Vancouver and music was calling her back; she recorded her debut album, Winning Starts With Beginning, in 1998, which went on to be nominated for two Western Canadian Music Awards and three Canadian Country Music Association Awards. Uncomfortable with her new-found local spotlight, Asta decided teaching would be the best route for her, so, in 2001, Asta left her finance job and made the leap into music teaching full time. She opened the Heartland Music School out of her home in the Vancouver suburbs and, almost immediately, her roster grew to 80 students. And it was one of those students who drew her to New York City for the first time; Asta went to Manhattan to see her student perform on Broadway and fell in love with fast-paced metropolis.
