The small farm she grew up on in Balmoral, Manitoba, couldn't contain the big dreams of Phoebe Dykstra. She quickly set her sights on Toronto, not only because it was the city that housed MuchMusic HQ, but also home to one of the world's most vibrant music scenes. Phoebe was determined to take her passion for music to the next level and take a leap into the world of music and entertainment.
After two years of working behind the scenes in the music industry, Phoebe was certain she was working in the world she had always wanted to be a part of. When MuchMusic announced the iconic MuchMusic VJ Search, Phoebe jumped at the chance to make her dreams a reality. After making the Top 16, Phoebe quickly became a fan favourite. Although she didn't land the job on that occasion, she quickly grew a supportive fan base, reminding her not to give up. A year later, Phoebe landed the much-coveted job as a MuchMusic VJ, and she attributes this to both her hard work and her fans.
As one of the originating members of MuchMusic's flagship series NEW.MUSIC.LIVE., Phoebe has been instrumental to its success, interviewing mega-star acts including Justin Bieber, Hugh Jackman, Ed Sheeran, and Demi Lovato.
Known to fans as a VJ with a positive and caring persona, Phoebe highlights her fun-loving personality with her own segment on NEW.MUSIC.LIVE., #askphoebe. Through it, Phoebe offers her fans advice, whether it's providing moral support when fans gets their first tattoo, helping to plan a romantic anniversary, or assisting a cheerleader prep for a world championship.
An animal-loving vegetarian who literally wears her heart on her sleeve with over 20 tattoos, Phoebe is the eternal dreamer. With unmatched positive energy, Phoebe can be seen bringing her knowledge of music and tell-it-like-it-is attitude to NEW.MUSIC.LIVE. and TODAY's TOP 10.
