Feb. 27, 2013 - Issue #906: Tegan and Sara - Pop goes their world
Sarah Cripps walked away from a major record deal at 13, choosing instead to maintain a completely independent approach to her music. The singer-songwriter, now barely into her 20s, has now released Change, a country disc with nods to pop and rock influences. Before making a stop in Edmonton on her cross-Canada tour, Cripps shared her firsts, lasts and favourites with Vue.
I honestly can’t remember the exact album, but I remember singing and playing my guitar along with Sarah McLachlan’s album Surfacing very early on.
I was nine and I was really getting into guitar, so my parents took me to see classical guitar player Liona Boyd. I was stoked to meet her after the show and get a signed CD.
The last physical album was Shovels & Rope, O Be Joyful. The last digital purchase was Emmylou Harris, Roses in the Snow.
I recently went to see Rose Cousins at the Glenn Gould Theatre. It was an amazing show with special guest appearances from so many wicked female artists including Kathleen Edwards.
There are so many that I’m into right now, but if I had to choose one favourite it would be between Rumors by Fleetwood Mac or Revolution by Miranda Lambert.
Favourite musical guilty pleasure
My guilty pleasure is dance and electronic pop music. Robyn and Ellie Goulding are two artists I always find myself turning my iPod to in the car. V
