Vancouver has an astounding network of singers. And I feel blessed every day to be a part of that network.
Today I’d like to give you a little peek at some of the female talent that is hiding in plain sight in Vancouver, working away every weekend to bring you great music.
Not only do these women sing, and sometimes play, amazingly well, but they are stellar human beings. Perhaps Vancouver is unique in that way, or perhaps that has just been my experience of it. But I have always felt a kinship and an amazing support network with the female singers of Vancouver, whether we know each other personally, or just through the grapevine. It seems to be less about ego and more about supporting each other here, and I love that.
This is the teeniest, tiniest tip of the iceberg here in Vancouver. These are some of the women I’ve been lucky enough to come across…but there are so many more…
Behold, the talent, in no particular order:
Saffron Henderson (my partner in crime in The Ticket)
(I don’t know why Saffron’s name keeps posting with a line through it. After half an hour of trying to figure it out, to no avail, I give up. I guess it means she wears the most Show Girl feathers.)
Layla Vaugeois (Troys R Us)
(Again with the weird line. Sorry Kylee. I really love ya. I guess it’s just a sign of…affection?)
Leslie Harris (lesismore)
Who is some of your favourite local talent, wherever you live? Do you enjoy seeing and supporting local musicians, or just the big guys on the radio…and why? Let me know in the comments below!
