Indie Music Monday - Kieran Strange

Categories: Indie Music Monday | Posted by: Jenavive

If you spend $.99 today it should be on iTunes buying Adamantine Hearts by Kieran Strange . The song is jam packed with catchy lyrics and irresistible melodies. It’s definitely my favorite song by this talented singer-songwriter and I cannot stop singing it in my car. You can also listen to the track on her YouTube channel.

British Pop Rocker Kieran Strange is all about being yourself, being different and being strong. She’s one of those amazing people who can encourage everyone around her to follow their passions while delivering a strong message of individuality. Watching her interact with her fans is inspiring. She loves them dearly and you can see it by how they respond and support her.  Get in on the #strangers action and follow her on twitter. This year she’s even up for a Shorty Award, which honours the best in social media.

I’ve been incredibly lucky to tour with Kieran and play a few shows with her. We had the most amazing Canada Music Week sleepover party last March when we split a hotel room.  There is nothing like a girl party to really bond with great musicians and good people. Kieran’s stage shows are packed with energy and she seems to really get what her audience wants. She’s undeniably generous and I really expect fantastic things to come from her in the coming years.

Check her out!!

Indie Music Monday – Hello Moth

Categories: Indie Music Monday | Posted by: Jenavive

This week’s IMM spotlight is Calgary based singer-songwriter Hello Moth.  

Armed only with a vintage Casio VL-1 synth and a loop pedal, Hello Moth adds layers and layers of lo-fi texture to create warm, entrancing songs.

Don’t let the VL-1 fool you with it’s small size, and kid’s toy-ish charm.  Hello Moth proves it’s not the size of the synth that matters, it’s how you use it.

You can check out Hello Moth’s website here, or his facebook page.
