The young Halifax singer/songwriter has been billed as a Joel Plaskett protege, but her songs and voice are definitely good enough to attract attention without his endorsement. Her 2012 self-titled debut was so strong that it spurred talent-spotters at Massey Hall to book her for the Canadian Songbook At The Rivoli series, which is designed to shine a spotlight on the emerging artists they hope will someday be playing the big soft-seater venues.
Wednesday (February 13), 8 pm, at the Rivoli (332 Queen West). $19.50. 416-596-1908.
