Toronto-born Mia Sheard is taking a breather from touring as a singer with Classic Albums Live to perform selected songs from her four albums of original music. She writes dynamic art-folk and rock songs with an emphasis on lyrics that tell a story, and reflect the darker side of the human experience. Sheard's music has been described as...
"...pure Lewis Carroll, though far more melancholy than any of Alice's adventures. Like Carroll, and maybe Beck, Sheard has a knack for stringing together kaleidoscopic words and scenarios that shouldn't work but somehow do. Combined with her fearless falsetto, the results are electrifying -- we're talking hardcore gooseflesh -- and very, very moving."
-Kim Hughes, NOW Magazine
Sheard will be performing with her band: Kevin Lacroix on guitar (Ron Sexsmith, Communism), Chris Gartner on bass (Kevin Hearn), Ryan Granville-Martin on drums (Great Lake Swimmers, Sarah Slean), and guest vocalist Tamara Williamson (Mrs Torrence) adding harmonies.
