Haley Small: Everytime (Promo CDS) (Airdome Records, 200x)

 From Toronto, Canada, the first of two tween/teen artists produced by Eddie Bullen and possibly a part of his high school co-op program but not entirely certain. He has a very diverse producing style from jazz to reggae to contemporary R&B music and still works out of his studio Thunder Dome Sounds in Toronto, Ontario. Small was only 14 when this track was recorded although her powerful pipes belie her young age. Recorded for Bullen's then-label Airdome Records, I can't find any information as to whether it was actually released or not - the disc itself is an inkjet-printed CDr - but an article was written about it in the Netherlands. I am inclined to think that it may be a promo at least.

Small has since gone on to work with Drake's producer Boi-1da and these days now specializes in slow jams and ballads with "attitude."

Despite the discrepancies in the song titles, all tracks are different remixes/edits of the title track.
