Fritz Helder & The Phantoms Added To Superfraiche New Pop Music Showcase

Music blogger Arjan Writes has announced the addition of Nelly Furtado protégés Fritz Helder & The Phantoms to his Superfraiche New Pop Music Showcase at Canal Room on June 10th. The emerging Toronto electro-pop-fashion outfit completes the line-up of eclectic new pop artists that Arjan will present on June 10th. Other artists that will perform at the showcase are Del Marquis (of Scissor Sisters) & Embryoroom, Norwegian songstress Kate Havnevik, Canadian synth-pop artists Noah, LA singer/songwriter Scott Simons, dance-pop diva Kaci Battaglia and Russian pop-rocker Avian X. In between performances, turntable maven Lind$ay Luv and electro-pop duo Dangerous Muse will be spinning their beats. Tokyo-based Shantell Martin will be creating interactive screen projections to complement the audio experience with exciting visuals.

Fritz Helder & The Phantoms are gearing up for a rare US performance at Superfraiche in support of their forthcoming debut album, titled "Greatest Hits," out on July 7th through Universal for Canada and Fontana/Universal for the US. The group is the first act signed to Nelly Furtado's new music management company, Nelstar Music. The group started out as a dance troupe put together by choreographer Fritz Helder, and previously appeared with Nelly Furtado on tour. As word of mouth quickly spread on the group's electrifying performances they soon began booking their own gigs with acts like Lady Gaga, Dragonette and Semi-Precious Weapons.

"I've been thinking about a way to help Fritz Helder for a while and this venture grew out of my love for the band, their art and their work ethic. I am as committed as they are to bringing their creativity to the world," says the Grammy Award winning and multi-platinum singer Nelly Furtado.

Superfraiche at Canal Room on June 10th marks an important milestone for pop music blogger Arjan Writes.

"I'm thrilled with the addition of Fritz Helder & The Phantoms to Superfraiche," the blogger says. "I've been blogging and tipping readers about exciting new pop music since 2003, and it is exciting to finally share some of my favorite emerging new acts on the stage. It is an eclectic mix of artists that runs the pop gamut, but always sweet & crunchy."

Tickets for SUPERFRAICHE can be purchased online for $10 advance rickets or $13 at the door. People that purchase tickets before June 5 will a limited-edition "Superfraiche Mixtape: Volume 1" that Arjan put together to celebrate his debut showcase.
