Farideh Ceaser describes herself in her podcast as a "recovering musician" (which I found quite funny). While you may know of her through her music in groups like Rosie & the Riveters, she is an entrepreneur and market strategist. After taking a step back from touring for nearly four years, she decided to have another go at it, this time doing things her own way.
The Balconies have finally released their much anticipated album, Fast Motions today (unless you were part of their PledgeMusic Campaign) and they have set themselves up to be one of the most watched Canadian band this year. Here's our review of Fast Motions.
With a voice that’s been likened to a thunderstorm, Megan Nash rolls into Regina’s Creative City Centre on February 1st before taking her prairie imagery and gravel road vocals on tour through the Maritimes.
The Mortlach-raised Nash brings with her a strong country background mixed with influences as varied as Neko Case and Stevie Nicks. Nash has opened for the likes of Serena Ryder, Amelia Curran, The Heartbroken and Del Barber and has toured the majority of Canada including the NorthwestTerritories.
Joining Nash on the Saskatchewan leg of her tour is Fern, an up-and-coming artist in Saskatoon’s indie-folk scene. Fern has been steadily building a name for herself with understated, lush arrangements interwoven with thoughtful lyrics. Both Nash and Fern are preparing to release new material in the coming year.
Megan Nash and Fern hit the Creative City Centre’s Hague Gallery stage on Saturday, February 1 with doors at 7:30 and the show starting at 8:00. Tickets are available at the door for $10 each. For more information, please visit www.creativecitycentre.ca.
