Katie Stelmanis – songs & dates
Katie Stelmanis is celebrating her new album “Join Us” (released by Blocks Recording Club) by holding not one, but two cd release parties with the absolutely amazing Luyas. They are going to be in Kingston on January 12th at The Artel and I highly recommend you check it out. I saw Stelmanis opening for Miracle Fortress in September (sadly, I didn’t record her set) and she blew me away with her powerful, dramatic voice. Her songs are brooding, passionate, and, when at their climax, are absolutely thunderous.
* Natural Woman (yes, ‘that’ Natural Woman, but covered like never before).
Here are a few dates:
Jan.11 – Silver Dollar w/ the Luyas, the Torrent, and Emma McKenna
Jan. 12 – Kingston – Artel Series w/ the Luyas
Jan. 27 – Waterloo – the Grist Mill w/ Picastro and Nadja
Jan. 31 – Guelph – KAZOO at the E-bar w/ Bruce Peninsula
Don’t forget – the Nicole Atkins contest closes tomorrow at noon so get your entries in now.
