review by The Revue
There are several reasons why one should visit Toronto, Ontario – great restaurants, the CN Tower, the Royal Ontario Museum, and a terrific music scene. And no, it’s not all about Drake, Feist, or Metric. There are dozens of emerging bands and artists to check, some of whom we’ve profiled recently (e.g., For Esmé). Another one to add to the list is Rebecca Everett. The singer-songwriter, who is originally from Victoria, British Columbia but has not established roots in the home of the Blue Jays, is getting set to release her third album, Seven Shades. The lead track is “Sting of a Kiss”. The song with its brooding, smokey, bluesy sound, has a suspenseful, cinematic quality a la Timber Timbre. It’s a song that would be perfect in either a future James Bond film or True Detective, which isn’t surprising as Everett has written music for television shows. This track is absolutely intoxicating.
