Toronto's Renowned Integral House Serves as Backdrop for Chantal Kreviazuk's Latest Music Video 'Into Me'

Iconic residence belonging to the late James Stewart honoured by award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 7, 2015) - The memory of a significant influence in Canadian music and philanthropy was honoured by award-winning singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk in an exclusive video shoot at Canada's iconic Integral House. The private residence, commissioned by the late, renowned mathematician and professional violinist James Stewart, served as the breathtaking backdrop to the music video for Kreviazuk's latest single 'Into Me'.

The official video features two ballet dancers awakening in the morning and shifting through the estate's impressive interiors. 'Into Me' is the first single in Kreviazuk's new studio album, which is set for release this spring.

A true legacy of architecture, classical music and mathematics, Integral House is regarded as "one of the most important private houses built in North America" by Glenn D. Lowry, director of New York's MoMA. A reflection of Stewart's intense passion for music, the 18,000 square foot residence boasts a performance space for over 150 people that has hosted benefit concerts, philanthropic events and the world's greatest musical talents.

A generous patron of Canadian music during his lifetime, one of Stewart's final and most notable contributions is still pending: proceeds from the sale of Integral House, listed at $22.9 million CAD by Paul Maranger, Christian Vermast and Fran Bennett of Sotheby's International Realty Canada, will be donated to organizations he supported, including those contributing to Canadian arts and culture.

"Integral House is significant not only as an architectural gem, but as one of the most recognizable and unique landmarks in the Canadian arts and music landscape," says Paul Maranger, Broker and Senior Vice President, Sales for Sotheby's International Realty Canada in Toronto. "We are pleased to see the estate continue to play an important role in elevating Canadian music, just as it did during Dr. Stewart's lifetime."

Kreviazuk, a notable philanthropist who most recently received the Order of Canada for her contribution to human rights causes, notes that the filming of her latest music video at Integral House pays homage to Stewart's legacy.

"The decision to shoot 'Into Me' at Integral House was made not only because we felt the estate would be architecturally stunning," says Kreviazuk, "It was also a way to honour the incredible impact that this remarkable man had on Canadian music and society as a whole."

About Chantal Kreviazuk

Multiple Juno Award winner Chantal Kreviazuk never considered a career in music until she began writing what would become her Platinum-selling debut album during recovery from a serious motorcycle accident in 1994. 'Under These Rocks and Stones' was released to widespread acclaim in 1997, and Chantal has since become one of Canada's most beloved artists. With a string of distinguished albums and singles, Chantal's drive to expand her artistry has led her to become a highly sought-after songwriter, having penned hits for Pink, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Drake, among many others. Having demonstrated an outstanding commitment to human rights causes, War Child Canada being among them, Chantal and her husband Raine Maida received the 2014 Allan Slaight Humanitarian Spirit Award for their longstanding dedication to the world community, and were appointed to the Order of Canada in 2014.
