I seem to have a bad luck on trying to see Charlotte Cornfield play live in Ottawa.
She is a lovely and talented singer/songwriter from Montreal.
Seems when she is in Ottawa, there is a conflict with another show or plays all the way at the Black Sheep Inn.
I probably have a better chance in Montreal or Toronto on seeing her live.
Anyways Charlotte released a two single teaser from her upcoming album “Two Horses“.
The closest I’ve seen her live was when she played in the band “Bent By Elephants“. (Review from their show)
Here is a blurb about it.
Montreal lyrical folk rocker Charlotte Cornfield spent the fall of 2010 holed up in a Toronto studio shedding blood, sweat and tears over her first full length record, a true labour of love entitled Two Horses.
The album, a 10-song conceptual piece on the theme of love gone awry, reflects the duality of Cornfield’s musical influences: the deep lyricism and raw emotion of Mitchell, Dylan, and Young, mixed with the intense energy and hookiness of late-70’s New York rock and roll. Cornfield, in collaboration with producer Ryan Granville Martin, recruited ten Toronto musician friends and three members of her Montreal band to play on the album. “This record has a lot to do with me being pulled by two cities. I needed to have Montreal and Toronto come together to bring it full circle,” says Cornfield.
Listening to both tracks.
I have to say, she is like the female version to Leif Vollebekk.
Construction On The Street has that upbeat indie pop rock sound to it.
Gananoque has that indie acoustic folk pop.
She is truly a talented musician.
I can’t wait to what the full album sounds like.
Check out the video for Construction On The Street from Southernsouls.
