We’ve got something major comin’ up, Calgary. Soulful pop-rock act Major Love is hitting our legendary stage to chase away the winter chill!
About Major Love:
Major Love is the moniker of Canadian songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Colleen Brown – and a collaboration featuring Alberta rock darlings Scenic Route To Alaska with Ontario’s Elijah Abrams. Co-produced by Jesse (& the Dandelions) Northey, and Aaron Goldstein (Daniel Romano, Altameda) – they’ve made an album of ‘soulful pop-rock music for their hoser friends’.
With versatile songs and a voice akin to Joni Mitchell, Colleen Brown is relentlessly unafraid. In 2015 she released her 4th solo studio album ‘Direction’ – co-produced by Joel Plaskett – topping college radio charts, and touring Canada, Germany and the UK. Kerry Doole of exclaim.ca says ‘she is the rare vocalist that impresses equally on vibrant soul and quiet folk…travelling in Brown’s Direction is one very pleasing trek.
About The Rosellas:
Emily Triggs and Lorrie Matheson are the Rosellas. The pair teamed up after Lorrie produced Emily’s amazing debut record “When Guinevere Went Under” and they became fast friends. Harmony singing is the impetus for the duo’s existence, and their voices compliment each other exquisitely. “You be Emmylou, I’ll be Gram”, said Lorrie on their first rehearsal, and while that classic duo is a touchstone, their music is informed by such artists as Big Star, Tom Petty, Gillian Welch, and other roots rock luminaries. Come listen, they’ll sing you back home.
