miriam laurence allan guttman second city Limor was born and raised in Toronto. She has always been passionate about Art - especially acting. The first time she realized she wanted to act was when she did a monologue in her improv class. A director from New York told her that she had a talent for acting and strongly encouraged her to pursue that path. Limor studied Fashion and Cosmetics in School. Even though she graduated with honours she knew she had to follow her dream. She could not get the director's voice out of her head. She left the cosmetics industry to go back and follow her true heart. She trained with Miriam Laurence and Allan Guttman, to name a few. She auditioned for William Esper Studio and got into their 2 year Meisner program in New York and graduated. Limor is also a Graduate of Second City in Toronto (Levels A-E). For 2 years she soaked up Broadway shows, off-broadway shows, subway performers and felt a constant sense of inspiration from the electricity of the city. She immersed herself in her classes. Everyday was a blessing on her journey. Limor then returned to Toronto excited to pursue acting. She is focused on improv and creating her own projects, writing a one woman show "1+3=ME" which she performed at The Toronto Fringe. Limor remains artistically curious by pursuing a life with meditation, journaling, gratitude and reading books on spirituality, plays, and business. Limor is also an animal advocate, film buff and loves to go see live theatre. mini short Limor Markovzki actress writer

ynf Dru Grange Songs included “The One”, “Stay with Me (Always)”, “Seasons”, “She Can Ride”, “Gettin It In”, "Don’t Be Afraid”, and “You”. In our quick interview, we discussed 'In Essence', The One, songwriting, The Voice Russia and YNF. Determined. Revolutionary. Unstoppable. These are fitting words to describe Dru (Andrew Grange), whose musical influences include Usher, Frank Ocean, Marvin Gaye, D’Angelo, Jodeci, and Stevie Wonder. Dru first tasted success as the lead singer of the R&B group In Essence, whose debut album The Master Plan earned a JUNO Award, MuchMusic Award, and a SOCAN #1 Award (for the club hit, “You Will Never Find”) in 2004. Working with a team of hit-making songwriters and producers motivated Dru to take his talent to a new level and increased his desire to reach a broader audience, both as a singer and as a songwriter. The One, Dru’s first solo album, was released in 2008 to critical acclaim. The first three singles, “The One”, “Stay with Me (Always)”, and “Seasons” garnered strong chart positions at CHR/Top 40 and Hot AC radio across Canada, peaking at #10. The One was also released in Japan on DRU JVC. Dru demonstrated his versatility as a vocalist when he was featured on Doman & Gooding’s high energy Dance hit single, “Runnin” in 2009, which earned him another JUNO nomination for Dance Recording of the Year. Rupert Gayle (Maxi Priest), producer Alex Greggs (*NSYNC, Britney Spears, Shakira), and platinum songwriter Evan Bogart (Beyoncé, Rihanna) co-wrote a number of tracks for Dru’s second album On The Brink in 2014, which included his smash hit singles “She Can Ride” and “Gettin It In” – which both sold over 50,000 digital downloads each. The third single from On the Brink was “Love Collision”, which earned Dru another JUNO nomination in 2014 for Reggae Recording of the Year. In 2015 Dru put out the single “Deja Vu”, produced by heavy hitters Baseline and Kuya Productions. “Deja Vu” earned Dru another JUNO nomination for R&B/Soul Recording of the Year. In 2016, Dru released Don’t Be Afraid”, which has been streamed over 900k times on Spotify and the video has over 500k views on YouTube. That year he also opened for Sean Paul’s Canadian Full Speed Tour. Dru’s 2018 releases “Like I Do”, “Caroline”, “A Girl Like You” and “You” have each been well received and have collectively earned over 350k streams on Spotify to date. This success reinforces Dru’s excitement for his upcoming album TRB MMXX (The Rebirth 2020), set for release in April 2019. In Dru’s own words: “This album will have a deeper soulful 90s RNB feel, but still maintaining pop appeal. From the themes to the songwriting, it all came from my heart and personal experiences. “The Rebirth 2020” is my re-introduction to the music industry, but I’m bringing 20/20 vision along with my lessons learned.” To support the worldwide release of TRB MMXX, Dru will start with a European promo tour of 15 dates over May 17 – June 7, 2019, hitting 10 cities in 7 countries. Look for new Canadian tour dates in summer 2019.
