Oslo, Norway singer Marie Munroe has a a quality to her voice that makes you take notice instantly — strong, pretty and memorable. She’s only doing one show tonight, so this is the time to catch her. Take a listen here.
MTT has an haunting sound and intriguing lyrics — that’s enough to get me to their show.
I became a fan of Animalia’s music last year shortly after she released her EP, A Wave to Wash the World Away. Since, I have interviewed her for the Winehouse and for AUX TV. She is known for her powerful live performances and incredible voice. A must-see tonight.
Cat Thomson’s single, Sticks & Stones, is one catchy pop song. With a style akin to Sara Bareilles, her warm big voice is bound to leave you singing along.
Singer/songwriter Sonia Sturino has an unmistakable voice and style — bold, intense yet fun. The Box Tiger is a tight band that will keep you moving.
Though the bands name evokes images of winter, there is something so youthful, light and summery about Two Bears North that it is impossible not to feel happy while listening to them. The trio would sound great in an outside venue during a warm afternoon but tonight you can hear them at the Hard Rock Cafe.
The night owl selection for Wednesday is Mozart’s Sister. Why she is performing only one show, I don’t know? But I’m so disappointed. Mozart’s Sister is Montreal’s Caila Thompson-Hannant’s solo project (she’s also in Shapes and Sizes). Caila has such an incredible voice and I wish she had a second, earlier show. But either way she is worth seeing — just have an extra strong coffee tomorrow morning.
MORE BANDS TO CHECK OUT AT CMW: The Montreal band about has earnest lyrics and a great sound. They’re performing at Czehoski 8:00PM. Mixing romantic angst, rage and ferocious sexuality, Meg Myers is definitely provocative with a strong voice. Gimmicky dark pop? Or something buzz worthy? Worth checking out at Drake Underground 10:00PM.
