Make sure to check them out on tour this fall in the US, Canada, and France.</strong></h3> <p> </p> <p><strong>1. What was the first and last album (or song) you streamed?</strong></p> <p><strong>Yohan</strong>: Believe it or not, the first album I streamed was <em>ANTI</em> by Rihanna (I was always more a CD kinda guy!) I loved everything about that album: the production, the attitude, the songwriting, the awesome cover of Tame Impala‘s <em>Currents</em> closer “New Person, Same Old Mistakes,” retitled “Same Ol’ Mistakes”.</p> <p>The last one I streamed must’ve been Travis Scott’s latest release <em>Astroworld</em> which welcomes interesting guests and producers like Frank Ocean, James Blake, Tame Impala... It has many different moods, and that album cover by David LaChapelle is just so cool.</p> <p><strong>Nina</strong>: The last album I streamed was <em>Regeneration</em> (2001) by The Divine Comedy. It’s obviously not Radiohead’s producer Nigel Godrich’s latest one, but it’s amazing. I’m also in love with the singer’s voice. It’s sweet and peaceful. The song arrangements are beautiful too as they’re similar to classical music, which I played for a long time.</p> <p><strong>2. Name a song you wish you wrote? </strong></p> <p><strong>Nina</strong>: “No surprises” by Radiohead. It reminds me of my childhood when my father was very sick. I’d listen to it in bed, with headphones, and would instantly feel reassured. It’s almost like a lullaby, it has a soothing and universal touch to it.</p> <p><strong>Yohan</strong>: “Cecilia” by Simon &amp; Garfunkel. I’d ask my parents to put it on repeat when I was a kid. The rhythm and melody bring be back to happy place.</p> <p><strong>3. What was the first song you learned to play? </strong></p> <p><strong>Nina</strong>: When I was 9, my mother bought me a piano and hired a classical music teacher. The first song I learned was from <em>La Méthode Rose</em> by Ernest Van de Velde, a music theory book for piano beginners.</p> <p><strong>Yohan</strong>: At 10, I started a drum/guitar band with a friend. The first song we ever performed was “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” by U2. We also learned music by covering almost all of Nirvana’s songs, which we would then perform at local bars and small festivals, along with our first compositions. The venues were packed with teenagers from our school, those were great times.</p> <p><strong>4. If you could open for 3 different artists, who would they be? </strong></p> <p>We are huge fans of Arcade Fire. We saw their last tour at a festival in Europe and later their own show through a live stream. They are so talented and charismatic. Their set design and production is incredible, especially with the ring in the middle of the crowd.</p> <p>The National is one of our favorite bands too because of their melodic and dramatic vibes. The feelings they communicate through their songs and live shows are pure and authentic. They hit you straight to the heart. It would be an honour to share the stage with them.</p> <p>Tame Impala, of course, is on our bucket list of bands we’d love to open for!</p> <p>But also: Rhye, Angel Olsen, Emily Haines / Metric, Tori Amos, Half Moon Run, Bon Iver, Phoenix, Daughter, Bomba Estéreo, John Legend, Siddhartha (artist from Mexico)…</p> <p><strong>5. Which song(s) do you cover in concert?</strong></p> <p>“Love You Like A Love Song” by Selena Gomez.</p> <p>We’ve adapted it to our style, the delivery is quite emotional when we play it on stage. We love covering songs from artists that are different from what we do, so we can adapt it the “Cats On Trees ” way.</p> <p><strong>6. Which artist(s) would you love to collaborate with?</strong></p> <p>It would be a dream to create with Sufjan Stevens.</p> <p>We also love French Canadian rapper Loud. It could be interesting to do a song in French with him!</p> <p>Lorde, Pharrell Williams who’s an amazing songwriter, and the producers of The Weeknd which are mind-blowing.</p> <p>In a wider perspective, we’d love to collaborate with film producers and visual storytellers that we could compose soundtracks for, whether movies, TV documentaries, video games, etc. We find it fascinating to create a musical mood that conveys perfectly the emotions of a specific visual.</p> <p><img alt="Cats on Trees - NEON" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="1f75a723-27cf-49df-a091-6f69cdb26a2d" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/catsontrees.jpg" /></p> <p><strong>7. What were your inspirations for your 2nd album <em>NEON</em>?</strong></p> <p>Our first album released in 2013 sold over 220 000 copies and brought us on a 200-concert tour. That overnight success changed our entire lives and got us to meet amazing new people and travel to places we would’ve never been to, like Bolivia in South America where we shot “Sirens Call”. It wasn’t that long ago but all those experiences still inspire us. <em>NEON</em> encompasses those moments of travelling, being exposed to new cultures and languages, new styles of music, and it also reflects how we’ve both changed personally and artistically. Those shared experiences also help us create in an emotional and deep way. We are like a family because we know one another’s past and present. The friendship and loyalty we have towards each other is the basis of everything we do.</p> <p><strong>8. What are your wishes and goals for Cats On Trees? What’s next?</strong></p> <p>From a creative perspective, we want to write and collaborate with artists from different countries and cultures, whether for featurings, co-writing, remixes, etc. The key words to our creative process are curiosity and open-mindedness. We also wish to write more for other artists as we have tons of material and lots of different ideas.</p> <p>We are currently on tour to promote<em> NEON</em>. From a live performance perspective, we love the idea of reinventing our shows, so we’ve added a massive organic design that changes shape in response to our hand movement, and added 3 magical musicians that helped us rearrange our songs for the stage.</p> <p>Globally, we hope to continue touring a lot to discover new countries, people and art forms,that will feed our imagination to write more music. As of September 13th 2018, some of our wishes are becoming reality as we’ll embark on a short tour in Montréal, Lavaltrie (with Salomé Leclerc), Québec (with JORDANN), Toronto and NYC.</p> <h3><strong>Listen to Cats on Trees on:</strong></h3> <p><span class="size-h3"><span class="size-normal"><a class="button" href="https://music.stingray.com/en/channels/VIB_N1116?utm_source=stingray-blog-website&amp;amp;utm_medium=referral" target="_blank">Tôt ou Tard vibe: over 15 years of Independence</a> </span></span></p> <p><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.

This is what she had to say about her career in music and her upcoming debut EP, <i><em>This Is Not About You</em></i>.</span></span></span></strong></p> <p> </p> <h3><strong><span><span><span>Something that jumped out at me when reading through your bio is that you use your music as a vessel for storytelling. Can you take us through that process?</span></span></span></strong></h3> <p><span><span><span>Funnily enough, as a child I used to write poetry and creative stories, that was the way I expressed myself, through writing it down. Later on, when I was about 8, I discovered that I could sing so it became the perfect combination for me to really identify what I was feeling. I usually start with the lyrics or write a poem, and if I can convert that into a melody and a song then that’s what I’ll do. That’s my process, and that’s where I find some relief and clarity around what I’m feeling and the things that I experience in my life.</span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <h3><strong><span><span><span>In such a young career, you’ve already shared a stage with some big names like Lady Antebellum and Keith Urban, and you’ve performed at gigs like CMC Rocks - this must have been a highlight for you. Can you share a moment in your career so far, that made you realize “Things are happening for me; I could do this for a living”?</span></span></span></strong></h3> <p><span><span><span>Luckily for me, I’ve had a few moments like that now. I think the one that stands out is when I was able to open for Hunter Hayes at the Metro Theatre here in Sydney. It was the first time I had ever played the Metro Theatre, it was one of those coveted venues that I had on my bucket list. With that being said, I tried to keep my expectations low and thought of it as a great learning experience, even if no one was there to watch the support act, but it was actually a full house. I hadn’t really known what I would be like under that kind of pressure, I had the question at the back of my mind, “Can I handle it?”. I feel like I rose to the occasion! It was a multi-faceted experience because I got the feeling that, “Yes! I can do this”, and the audience response to my performance made me feel confident in the direction that I was taking. This was one of the highlights of my music career and my life.</span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <h3><span><span><span>That must have been an incredible feeling. I’m sure having that direct audience response to your music must be motivating; you can see and hear that your music is working out! </span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>For sure. We’ve worked the covers scene and it’s a different kind of magic to have that reflecting back at you when you’re playing your own songs. It’s such an energy!</span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <h3><span><span><span>What I love about your music is that it seems to be inspired by a variety of music styles. Can you tell us about your influence, the music genres and artist that you admire?</span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Well, growing up, I had two CD’s that I would listen to in my parents' car and that was, The Dixie Chicks, ‘Home’…</span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <h3><span><span><span>Ah, so that’s where you get your country flare from.</span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Yeah! …and the other was Linkin Park, ‘Hybrid Theory’! John Meyer, Paramore, and Maren Morris - who’s a country girl as well - are probably my main influences right now. Even though they are all so different, in a genre sense, they manage to push the boundaries of what’s expected and they all do such a good job of making you feel something. That’s always been the main goal through everything; to make music that’s emotion-filled and to let people feel something. I think that’s really present in country music, the story telling aspect and being able to make people feel. </span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <h3><span><span><span>Where do you want to take this? What’s the next big stage you would like to conquer?</span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>I’m in the midst of releasing my debut EP and I think that will determine the next step, but I would love to play festivals and tour Australia. I would love to do a Canadian and US run too.</span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <h3><span><span><span>Speaking of your EP, what can listeners expect from your upcoming release<i>, <em>This Is Not About You</em></i>?</span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>I am really excited about the journey that the songs take you on. The songs that I selected for the EP were all created during the same era of my life. I guess it’s a part of growing up, but I was quite confused and I wasn’t clear about the direction that I wanted to go in at that time and writing those songs gave me clarity. A lot of my relationships during that time really transformed too so you will hear a lot of songs about relationships on there. I’m excited about the ending track of the EP because it gives an empowering feeling and a sense that you’ve dusted yourself off, you’re ready for the next thing and you’ve gotten new confidence back.</span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p class="tinytext">Image credit: The Peak Agency 2018.

Qui est Sébastien? </span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Sébastien est un gars sympathique, enjoué, positif et engagé dans un million de projets différents (dont certains incluent Barbada, évidemment). C’est aussi un gars qui aime s’informer, s’instruire et discuter d’enjeux de société (politiques, environnementaux, sociaux, etc.). Ce n’est donc pas surprenant que Barbada ait aussi ces traits de personnalité et ces intérêts, mais en y ajoutant une (grosse) touche de follie.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Barbada est une Drag Queen dynamique, drôle et surprenante. Elle excelle dans les styles disco, pop et dance, en passant par l’humour et les grands classiques des années 90. Son animation est hilarante et toujours bien adaptée au public présent, que ce soit dans les bars, les mariages et les grands festivals extérieurs.</span></span></span></p> <p><img alt="Capture.PNG" height="743" src="/sites/blog/files/2018-07-pride/Capture.PNG" width="535" /></p> <h3><span><span><span>Comment est née Barbada de Barbades? </span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Barbada est « née » le 5 février 2005, à l’issue du « Star Search », un concours de Drag Queen organisé au Cabaret Mado. Dès lors, sa carrière commence à se développer. Le même été, elle offre une performance lors de la fête Arc-en-Ciel de Québec. À l’automne, elle participe à une nouvelle édition du « Star Search ». Cette fois-ci, elle se rend jusqu’en finale, et remporte le concours en décembre. Elle se produit dans de plus en plus d’endroits à Montréal, bien que son fief demeure le Cabaret Mado.</span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span>Merci de collaborer avec Stingray Musique et de créer ta propre chaîne! Parle-nous de tes goûts musicaux et de ce qui t’inspire le plus. </span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>En fait, mes intérêts musicaux varient grandement en fonction du moment de la journée ou de l’activité que je fais. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>D’une part, j’adore la musique de film. Je l’aborde souvent avec mes élèves et je fais de nombreuses activités musicales sur la musique au cinéma et l’importance de celle-ci. J’admire la musique des compositeurs plus connus comme John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Ennio Morricone, etc. Ces temps-ci, j’ai un sérieux faible pour les musiques de films de superhéros (DC Comics, Marvel, etc.).</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>D’autre part, quand j’ai besoin d’énergie ou que je me prépare pour des spectacles, ma playlist se compose principalement de musique dance, pop, et des classiques (ou parfois des remix) des années 90.</span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span>Tu travailles dans une école primaire comme enseignant de musique et syndicaliste. Comment tes élèves et leurs parents ont réagi en te voyant dans le documentaire <i>Ils de jour/Elles de nuit</i> diffusé sur Artv en 2017? Est-ce qu'on est plus ouvert d'esprit qu'on le pense?</span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Je m’attendais à avoir plusieurs réactions diverses suite au documentaire (certaines positives, d’autres négatives). À ma grande surprise, j’en ai reçues moins que prévu dans mon milieu de travail. Plusieurs collègues enseignantes m’ont dit qu’elles ont regardé le documentaire, et quelques élèves aussi (une dizaine, tout au plus). La directrice m’a aussi témoigné de son ouverture et de son support inconditionnel, dans l’éventualité de réactions négatives de la part de parents ou d’élèves. Réactions qui ne sont jamais venues puisque tous les ‘feedbacks' que j’ai reçus furent positifs. Je suis particulièrement heureux de constater l’évolution des mentalités et l’ouverture d’esprit de la population québécoise. Certes, il y a encore du chemin à faire dans bien des milieux, mais les situations que j’ai vécues suite à ce documentaire m’ont énormément encouragée.</span></span></span></p> <p><img alt="33.PNG" height="653" src="/sites/blog/files/2018-07-pride/33.PNG" width="1063" /></p> <h3><span><span><span>Es-tu surpris de là où tu es rendu dans le monde de la Drag?</span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Chaque nouvelle opportunité que m’amène ce passionnant métier me surprend. Je suis tellement étonnée de voir la diversité des contrats et des occasions qui se sont présentées à moi au cours de 13 dernières années. JAMAIS je n’aurais imaginé un jour être DJ pour des évènements du Cirque du Soleil. JAMAIS je n’aurais imaginé animer des spectacles extérieurs d’envergure, des mariages et des spectacles dans les bars de Montréal et de Québec. JAMAIS je n’aurais imaginé voyager à Toronto, Halifax, Minneapolis et plusieurs autres endroits pour faire des spectacles et divertir les gens. C’est FOU!!! #mercilavie</span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span>Comment ton Drag a-t-il évolué au fil des ans? As-tu l’impression que <i>RuPaul’s Drag Race</i> a eu un impact sur le milieu du Drag à Montréal? Crois-tu que l’âme de Guilda soit encore très présente? </span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Le transformisme, comme plusieurs autres formes d’art, a plusieurs sources s’inspiration et plusieurs tangentes différentes. Un peu à l’image d’un arbre : il y a un tronc commun qu’on pourrait appeler « Le Transformisme », il y a des grosses branches, comme la Drag, la personnification, le « Trash », le « look-a-like »; et il y a une foule de petites branches pour chaque style. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Honnêtement, je suis d’avis qu’il y a autant de styles de Drag qu’il y a de Drags, et que chaque Drag, même si elles se ressemblent parfois, sont uniques, parce qu’elles trouvent leur inspiration à divers endroits.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Personnellement, je n’ai jamais suivi RuPaul’s Drag Race, par manque de temps. Mais je constate l’impact majeur de l’émission sur l’univers des Drags, tant au niveau du public qui vient voir nos spectacles qu’au niveau des Drags elles-mêmes. Par contre, une chose me déçoit profondément sur l’émission : il n’y a jamais eu de participantes ‘Bio Queen’ (des filles qui font de la Drag). Je crois que ça ajouterait à la diversité de l’émission.</span></span></span></p> <p><img alt="8.PNG" height="788" src="/sites/blog/files/2018-07-pride/8.PNG" width="557" /></p> <h3><span><span><span>Y a-t-il quelque chose qui t’intéresse en particulier en musique ces jours-ci?</span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Évidemment, j’aime beaucoup les nouveaux artistes émergeants. J’aime la nouveauté et la fraicheur qu’ils/elles amènent à la scène musicale. J’aime aussi les artistes qui, peu importe leur âge, sont capables de se réinventer, capables d’amener des concepts différents et de démontrer, à travers leur art, qu’ils ont un réel talent, pas uniquement une équipe de producteurs et de créateurs qui font quasiment tout le travail à leur place. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>J’ai récemment découvert la chanteuse française Jain, et j’adore sa musique, son univers et sa créativité. Elle me rappelle un peu Stromae, un chanteur que j’affectionne particulièrement et que j’ai même déjà interprété en spectacle.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Malheureusement, de nos jours, je déplore le recours quasi systématique à l’informatisation de la musique. On transforme et parfois même on produit électroniquement les voix des chanteurs/euses, les sons des instruments et toute la musique en général. Même si je comprends le contexte, je pense que tout le monde devrait, de temps à autre, retourner écouter un ensemble vocal, une harmonie ou un orchestre pour se rappeler à quel point la musique ‘brute’, naturelle et non-transformée est magnifique.</span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span>Qui a été ton influence musicale la plus importante?</span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Mon Walkman jaune!!! HAHAHA Même si je n’ai plus mon Walkman depuis de nombreuses années, je me souviens PAR CŒUR des chansons que j’ai écoutées et ré-écoutées en boucle sur mon fameux walkman. Je me souviens encore de la cassette ‘DANCE MIX 95’ que j’ai écoutée ad nauseum. Encore aujourd’hui, je hurle ‘C’EST MA TOUNE’ lorsque j’entends les chansons qui jouaient dans mon Walkman. J’ai payerais cher pour retourner à cette époque où on appréciait encore plus les chansons, car c’était c’était tout un travail d’avancer et de reculer sans cesse la cassette pour trouver LA chanson qu’on voulait entendre. HAHAHA</span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span>Décris-nous ta journée parfaite.</span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>Ma journée parfaite inclut trois choses fort simples : du soleil, une plage et mon équipement de plongée. Je suis réellement comme un poisson dans l’eau. J’ADORE faire de la plongée, principalement dans les endroits du monde où l’eau est d’un magnifique bleu clair et regorge de poissons colorés. C’est une sensation à la fois enivrante et reposante de pouvoir être sous l’eau, parmi toute cette faune. Sous l’eau, tout semble au ralenti. C’est fascinant!</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Je rêve un jour de pouvoir faire de la plongée et de croiser de gros mammifères, comme des baleines. Ce doit être hallucinant comme expérience.</span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>Du même coup, chaque expérience sous l’eau me rappelle l’importance de la faune aquatique, de sa diversité et surtout, l’importance de la respecter et de la protéger. </span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span>Tes trois Drag Queens préférées. </span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span>C’est tellement difficile à dire. J’aime une foule de styles de Drags, et quand je voyage, je rencontre souvent des Drags remarquables, alors c’est difficile d’en choisir que trois. Une chose est sûre, c’est que j’adore les Drags qui me font rire. Celles qui ont une animation hilarante, mais sans tomber dans la vulgarité facile. Celles qui performent des numéros créatifs, différents, drôles et surprenants.</span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><b>Tombez sous le charme de la surprenante et hilarante Barbada sur <em>Stingray Musique</em>!</b></p> <p><a href="https://webplayer.stingray.com/app/channel-info/description?channel-id=VIB_N1174&amp;language=en&amp;play_channel=VIB_N1174&amp;utm_source=stingray-blog-website&amp;utm_medium=referral&amp;utm_content=pride-essentials">Pride Essentials by Barbada de Barbades</a></p> <p><b>Site web officiel: <a href="http://barbada.ca/" target="_blank">Barbada.ca</a></b></p> <p><strong>Restez à l'affût des dernières nouvelles musicales.

We stopped in beautiful Halifax from July 10 to 15 to attend the TD Halifax Jazz Festival, a longstanding Stingray Music partner. </strong></p> <p>The TD Halifax Jazz Festival, formerly known as the Atlantic Jazz Festival, is the oldest jazz festival and largest summer festival in Atlantic Canada. Each year, the festival attracts up to 55,000 visitors, involves 450 volunteers, and employs over 350 local musicians.</p> <p>This year, the Stingray Rising Stars finalists were: <strong>Chelsea McBride Socialist Night School, Emie R Roussel Trio, Benjamin Deschamps Quintet, </strong>The Blue Lane and<strong> <strong>Willem Paynter &amp; The Hardbop Collective</strong></strong></p> <p><img alt="stingray-blog-EmieRousselTrio.jpg" height="2667" src="/sites/blog/files/2018-07-coups-coeur-fijm/2018-07-halifax-jazz-fest-rising-stars/stingray-blog-EmieRousselTrio.jpg" width="4000" /></p> <p>Emie R Roussel Trio was chosen through a two-tiered process of peer assessment and online voting. Stingray Music awarded them with a $3,000 bursary to advance their career. Online voting took place at <a href="http://www.halifaxjazzfestival.ca/vote">www.halifaxjazzfestival.ca/vote</a> and at the Stingray Music booth at the Waterfront Stage. Close to 2,000 people voted online this year and over 500 festivalgoers on site. The winner was announced, Sunday, July 15, from the Waterfront Stage. Thank you to all who cast their votes online or visited the Stingray Music booth at the Waterfront Stage!</p> <h3>About the winners:</h3> <p><img alt="stingray-blog-meta.png" height="711" src="/sites/blog/files/2018-07-coups-coeur-fijm/2018-07-halifax-jazz-fest-rising-stars/stingray-blog-meta.png" width="1123" /></p> <p>The Emie R Roussel Trio won the 2015 Félix for Jazz Album of the Year for their 3rd album, Quantum, and the 2013‑14 Opus prize for Jazz Album of the Year for their preceding release, TRANSIT. The trio has experienced a dizzying ascent since 2010, and is now an unstoppable force in the Canadian jazz scene. With Emie R Roussel on piano (Révélation Radio-Canada Jazz 2014-2015), Nicolas Bédard on bass, and Dominic Cloutier on drums, the trio delivers creative and captivating jazz with passion and undeniable chemistry.</p> <p> </p> <p>The trio is no stranger to accolades for its music from both industry and music fans having garnered Special Mention from the jury of the TD Grand Jazz Award at the 34th Montreal Jazz Fest, and winning the Audience Choice Award at the 2013 Festi Jazz International de Rimouski. The group has not only been doing more and more concerts in Canada but has begun making its mark around the world, winning admiration in eleven countries and on four continents.  During a 2014 tour of Australia and New Zealand, they performed at the Melbourne Women’s International Jazz Festival and in the cities of Sydney, Brisbane, Auckland and Wellington.</p> <p><strong>We sat down with Emie from the Emie R Roussel Trio to tell us more about their win:</strong></p> <h3><strong>What is your earliest musical memory?</strong></h3> <p><br /> Coming from a musical family, there was always music in the house. I have a lot of musical memories; listening to my father practicing (he is also a pianist) and following my parents at their concerts. Falling asleep at night with headphones on my head, I would listen to The Köln concert of Keith Jarrett or sometimes hear the students at the musical school that my parents had in the basement of our house. </p> <h3><strong>Where/When did you start playing professionally?</strong></h3> <p><br /> My first professional gig was at the age of 15, where I would accompany a choir at the piano. By the time I was in college, I had already been doing some jazz gigs and started my trio during my last year at the university. The Trio’s first album was launched in 2010 when I was 22.</p> <h3><strong>Who are your main influences?</strong></h3> <p><br /> When I was young, I listened to lots of Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett. My current influences are mostly Brad Mehldau, Robert Glasper, Avishai Cohen, Esperanza Spalding, Kevin Hays, D’Angelo, Jill Scott, Lianne La Havas, Laura Mvula, Peter Gabriel, Sting and Radiohead.</p> <h3><strong>How did you come to play at the Halifax Jazz Festival?</strong></h3> <p><br /> We heard about the TD Halifax Jazz Festival a long time ago. It was our first opportunity to do a summer Canada’s jazz fest tour this year. We also played in Winnipeg and in Montreal during this tour.</p> <p> </p> <h3><strong>What do you plan to do with the Stingray Rising Stars bursary?</strong></h3> <p><br /> With the 10th anniversary of the Trio coming up, it will definitely be a plus with all projects that we have in mind like a new album and videos.</p> <p>Thank you so much Stingray Music!</p> <p class="tinytext"> </p> <p>For more information regarding the Stingray Rising Stars program, click <a href="https://music.stingray.com/rising-star">here</a>.</p> <p><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.
