Well I am tickled pink and honoured to say that Savvie was chosen to be Vancouver's finalist for the national CBC Searchlight contest! Out of the 25 artists, industry judges and votes will determine the 4 finalists who go on to perform live on TV for the top spot.
If you haven't seen it yet, you can check out my entry for "Gravity" and vote at the link below! This round is open for voting until May 9th.
Just a reminder - we've got copies of Night Eyes on Vinyl in almost all of Vancouver's record stores!
You can find them at: Neptoon Records, Red Cat Records, Dandelion Records & Emporium, Zulu Records, Vinyl Records, Audiopile Records, and Studio Records! If you're in Calgary, you can also find a copy at Sloth Records!
Make sure you stop by your local fave this weekend to support the supporters of local artists.
If you happen to be not in Vancouver or Calgary though, I don't want you to miss out on the fun - so I'll offer free shipping within Canada for anyone that purchases a copy of the record online this week!
The annual CBC Music Searchlight contest is upon us again, and this time I'd figure I'd throw my hat in the ring! To enter a song you need to include a video of you performing it, and this is what I came up with for my entry for Gravity - thanks to Generate for making it possible! A portion of the contest is voting based, so if you wanna help out you can click the link below to see the full video, and vote once a day!
To celebrate both the one year anniversary of Night Eyes, as well as the day of love, I wanted to share with you all a special download of the "secret song" from Night Eyes, that you would have only heard if you bought the CD or Vinyl!
It's the most optimistic song about love on the album - about how even the most fleeting moments with someone can have a significant impact on how you see the world.
We were honoured to see Night Eyes and it's songs appear on 2015 year end lists! Thanks to CBC Sonica, CBC Radio 3, Canadian Music Blog, and anyone else who gave us a listen in 2015! We're excited for what the new year holds!
We are so excited to celebrate the release of Night Eyes on vinyl! And to do so, we're putting on a show with some of the most kick-ass female fronted groups in the city - Legs and Youngblood! It's at the legendary Rickshaw theatre, and tickets are only $8 in advance/$10 at the door!
There's a @peakppbc bootcamp shaped hole in my summer this year - it's making me think about my all-time-favourite memories. This was by far the best sing along, complete with bunk bed crowd surfing 👌🏼 #tbt
What a weekend. From singing with mega babes @summerwitch & @skyewallacemusic, to all the pals and good times at @goldensoundfestival, to the emotional ride that was the final @thetragicallyhip show - it truly was a weekend that reminded me what music is all about ✨❤️✨
Happy Full Moon in Aquarius Lovers ✌🏼️🌝🌊 Pay attention to your intuitive inspirations, resist taking things too personally, and remember the magic is in you ❤️ art by @eugenia_loli
That was a super fun set, thanks @cbc_music @cbcvancouver! Next up is @goldensoundfestival Friday, where I take a turn singing backups for this beauty! 📷: @summerwitch 😍👯✌🏼
