Ghostly Kisses + Sister Ray / Up Here 8
Up Here is an urban art & emerging music festival in weird and wonderful downtown Sudbury that takes place from August 19-21, 2022.
Ghostly Kisses is the melancholic dream pop of québecoise singer-songwriter Margaux Sauvé. She began to play the violin at the age of 5 following in the footsteps of her family. Years later, she started to sing and wrote her first songs, which, according to Clash magazine, “have a weightless quality, something that transcends the ephemeral to grapple with key facets of our lives.” Don’t miss your chance to see her before she’s too famous for Sudbury.
Sister Ray, the project of Cree Métis Ella Coyes, was conceived out of necessity—a self-designed vehicle built to examine trauma with unflinching honesty. Armed with a voice that soars and scrapes in equal measure, Coyes converts first-person recollections of big, complicated love into universally potent allegories. The result is an unyielding, spacious, and commanding form of indie rock rooted in the folk tradition that transforms unvarnished, interior reflections into a generous public offering, one that was longlisted for the Polaris Music Prize this year!
