Some of the greatest art is drawn from darkness. So too was Love & Lust – a compelling and honest release from Jadea Kelly this 2016. However dark the muse, there is a sonic beauty and vulnerability shining throughout. Perhaps a familiar story to some, Love & Lust is an album of heartbreak but also an incredibly open and honest catalogue of infidelity, desire, betrayal, forgiveness and human frailty. Built with lilting melodies, symphonic violin, pop synth pads and majestic guitar tones Jadea guides the listener through the darkness of infidelity and her prolific journey towards light and wisdom. Despite the struggle of its creation Love & Lust is quite possibly the most honest, intense and emotional records of 2016 and a huge progression for Jadea Kelly and her songwriting.
Hailing from what has been described as the music capital of Canada, Winnipeg, Manitoba’s WCMA award winners Sweet Alibi (Jess Rae Ayre, Amber Rose and Michelle Anderson) have captivated audiences since 2009 with their charming and personal performances. With 3 releases, over 360 shows across Canada, 33 plus festival performances, in numerous radio performances and interviews, Sweet Alibi is fast becoming a well-known Roots/Pop group.
Tom Power of CBC Radio 2 describes Sweet Alibi as this, “If Mumford and Sons and the Supremes had a love child it would be named Sweet Alibi.” A fitting characterization for a group that blends soulful and powerful vocal harmonies with the sincerity of folk and the foot stomping energy of roots. Their new single “Middle Ground” from their 3rd album “Walking In The Dark” was featured on CBC Radio 2’s top 20 for 7 weeks in a row. The album has recently been nominated for a WCMA for “Roots Recording of the Year.”
