They turn down the volume on my microphone when I sing karaoke. (So much for that year of singing lessons.)
So when I was invited to Tuesday Night Music Club, it wasn’t to perform. The monthly series, which takes place at the Cellar on the last Tuesday of every month, brings together musical talent with industry pros (like yours truly).
Of the nine Vancouver-based artists I saw last week, two stood out as ones I’ll keep a close eye on. One was Luca Fogale, whose folksy sound seems to be of another time.
The other was Alexandria Maillot, whose voice and stage presence are primed for stardom. When introducing her take on “Rumour Has It,” she said “If I have one chance of being a YouTube sensation, it’s riding off Adele’s success.” I think she’s got a good shot on her own.
