Toronto roots trio Dear Sister formed in 2009, brought together by their love of traditional and contemporary folk music. The tender harmonizing of Bri and Raven’s voices coupled with Aaron’s instrumental playing have attracted crowds large enough to sell out iconic Toronto venues such as the Cameron House and the Rivoli.
Roots Songstress Allison Brown likes her religion a little bit gritty, takes her country music with a side of syrup and keeps her folk as dusty as the ol’ cabin floor. With a hatful of broken hearts, bad weather, toils of the road and leaps of faith, Allison’s crafted originals matched with classic roots repertoire reflect the striking conviction she brings to her sweet and powerful singing.
By turns vivaciously energetic and unassumingly sweet, folk/pop darling Crissi Cochrane concedes she does just fine with her new EP, Pretty Alright. Recorded in her new hometown of Windsor, Ontario, the EP showcases Crissi’s ability to charm listeners with her charismatic lyricism and nuanced songwriting.
