Kim & Mike’s Sunday Jam @ Spirits Week 3: Special Guest Stella Rose

May 12, 2011

Fun was had once again at Week 2 of our new Sunday Night Jam at Spirits on May 8th, complete with our families for Mother’s Day.  🙂

Our Special Guest for the evening – Leslie Ives – rocked some tunes (and her shoes!) as expected, and Mike once again had the room sounding GREAT! His job is made easier by the quality amps, and house drum kit from Long & McQuade. I do enjoy that kit – is it bad for me to want to own more than one drum kit? hmmm… Other friends gave it a whirl also, and Richard Weisdorf (an upcoming Special Guest) came by to give my keyboard some lovin’.

We know Week 3 is gonna country-roots-rock your socks off with our Special Guest: Stella Rose !

Stella, Mike & I have known each other for a number of years as friends and musical co-horts/co-conspirators, playing shows, and running an event together called “Chix with Pix” at Castro’s Lounge in Toronto.

I believe Stella describes her music as roots rock, and that works for me. She delivers her country-fried pop/rock tunes with a vocal punch ala Stevie Nicks, and Dolly Parton, and recently completed a debut cd called: “A Way Home”.

Co-produced by Stella it features pro Toronto musicians like James Gray (hey – he’s been coming out on Sundays to jam, too!), David Baxter, and Chris Gartner, among others. As I’m quite familiar with Stella’s music (and I performed backing vocals on her cd), I may be biased, but check out these standout tracks:

1. The title track, “A Way Home”

2. “Night & Day”

3. “Homeless Heart”

Stella plays every Monday at Starbucks, as a duo with guitarist, Frank Koren, as well as other places around the city – join her email list on her website, and come see her at Spirits on May 15th @ 10pm!
