Girl Power

I got to catch two amazing female artists at the Drake Underground on Wednesday, June 3: Halifax’s Ria Mae opening for Elle King.

Ria Mae is one of the more talented performers I had seen in awhile. Her songwriting style reminded me of another favourite- Courtney Barnett- simply, witty and relatable lyrics. She ended the set with her latest single “Clothes Off”: a super catchy dance tune that she teamed up with Classified to produce.

I have previously written about Elle King as her debut album “Love Stuff” is definitely one of my favourites so far from 2015. Seeing her live was a totally different and unbelievable experience. She has got to be one of the most authentic performers. She did exactly what she wanted and the crowd loved every minute of it.

I can’t wait to hear more from Ria Mae. Hopefully we will be seeing an EP very soon.
