What a pleasure being out at The Cameron House for She’s Listening Toronto II last night! This fundraiser in support of Ovarian Cancer Canada featured five amazing female singer/songwriters, all bringing their talents and positive energy to the stage in support of a great cause: Heather Hill, Kat Leonard, Melanie Peterson, Angela Saini and Jessica Speziale.
And what a great evening it was! I was already very familiar with – and love – Hill, Leonard, Saini and Speziale, and was really happy to meet Peterson and see her perform with her band. And she is also awesome!
Check out these ladies’ websites, and take a look at their music videos too. Heather Hill recently released her music vid for “Stupid Happy” and Jessica Speziale launched “Brace Yourself” recently. Here’s Angela Saini’s “Little Black Dress” (and she tells me a vid for “Something Like I’m Beautiful” is coming soon!) Here’s Melanie Peterson’s “Cinema Girl” – and if you haven’t heard Kat Leonard’s fangirl ode to Johnny Depp, then you must take a look at this singalong vid of “Jockstrap.”
And last, but not least, here are some pix I took at the event last night:
