Bliss: Can't Deny (CDM) (Beat Factory/BMG Music Canada, 2000)

Along with fellow Canadian R&B group Ora, Bliss first appeared on the Canadian-only urban compilation Groove Essentials 2000 but sadly disappeared after only one single. They were slightly more poppy than Ora, who had more of an underground R&B sound, and were managed by the same people behind fellow Canadian urban acts Kardinal Offishall and Glenn Lewis. They were signed to BMG Canada between 1999 and 2000 and this was their one and only single. They were minimally successful but allegedly didn't have enough backing from their label. I don't know if they ever recorded an album but promotional videos to two further songs Still In Love and Are We are available to watch on You Tube. I don't know why but in each video there is always one less member than before...
