Born in Toronto, this Canadian singer and songwriter grew up listening to her mother’s piano students as well as legendary soul from Sam Cooke and Stax on the radio. She’s a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, autoharp, piano, ukulele, bass and charango. Combining her early musical influences with a love of folk, country and R&B, she released her debut album “Oh, My Darling” in 2007.
Written in a snowstorm in Montreal and recorded in the desert heat of Joshua Tree in California, her new single also explores the edges of extremes musically. Despite singing with her Stevie Nicks-touched vocals about letting go of someone you lost, it’s foot-tappin’ invigorating and upbeat. Taken from her upcoming album “Are You In Love?”, expected on March 27, this is a tasty aural contradiction.
