Ladies of the Canyon in Guelph!
Sunday, November 28, 2010
Ladies of the Canyon are four friends who got together in their living rooms to write and sing songs influenced by their favourite bands – The Eagles, the Band and Fleetwood Mac.
Musicians and songwriters Maia Davies (vocals, guitars, mandolin, keyboards), Senja Sargeant (vocals, guitars, mandolin), Jasmine Bleile (vocals, guitars) and Anna Ruddick (electric and upright bass, vocals) have their distinct tone and personality, but when they come together for harmonies, it’s a gorgeous, soaring blend.
Their debut full-length album, Haunted Woman (Kindling / Warner Music Canada) was produced by Colin Cripps. Already recognized as one of Canada’s premiere guitarists, Cripps previously produced critically acclaimed albums by Kathleen Edwards and Blue Rodeo’s Jim Cuddy. Through his production work, Cripps has deftly showcased the wide range Ladies of the Canyon confidently explore; both as songwriters and vocalists.
Off stage, Anna and Senja who provide hours of entertainment on the road when Ladies of the Canyon tour. Jasmine is the voice of reason, while Maia makes sure all business is in order. But when they get on stage, these four women make one wonderful sound. They’ve been doing so for the last two years, and with the release of Haunted Woman, this next year will be more of the same.
Originally from Guelph, Vicky Fraser will open the evening and will be accompanied by Nick Craine for this performance.
