Spotlight on Marvest will introduce you to the talented music makers in Ottawa performing FREE! shows as part of the Marvest offshoot of CityFolk.


Saturday Sept 16, 2017 – 2:45 PM – BMO at Lansdowne (100 Marché Way)
Saturday Sept 16, 2017 – 3:30 PM – Industria Pizzeria + Bar (225 Marché Way)

What was your reaction to the news you’d be a part of Marvest and who was the first person you told?
I was stunned! It’s my first festival so I was absolutely over the moon – I immediately called my grandmother to tell her the good news!

Please describe your sound.
My sound is indie acoustic. My original material is strongly based on lyrics and the emotion behind them, I find beauty in being vulnerable and open about experiences and obstacles in life. Being able to be share an emotion and see it come back through an audiences face when they just ‘get it’ is one of the best feelings in the world.

How did you get started on your musical journey?
I started when I was very very young with choral music – after years, I rediscovered music in a new way as a singer-songwriter. Since last year when things really started to pick up momentum, I’ve discovered a whole new side to not only myself, but my music and my voice. I’d absolutely not be where I was today without the amazing teachers, vocal coaches and mentors I’ve been lucky to work with through the years.

What can music fans expect from your show? Will you be playing or releasing any new music?
For my show, I am planning on having a ton of fun with my fans! I will be playing my newer song, Dancing, which is actually the single on my upcoming EP! I am really looking forward to sharing that song – it’s so much fun, and hopefully I’ll get some people dancing with it!

What artists are you hoping to catch during this year’s Cityfolk and Marvest?
I am SO beyond excited to catch Jack Johnson’s performance- he’s been a favorite of mine for well over a decade, and I’ve never been able to see him perform live. Fred Penner and Amanda Marshall are big ones for me as well, I just can’t wait to experience all that CityFolk has brought us this year!
