|SCENE AND HEARD showcases the independent music scene here in Vancouver.
With over 36,000+ artists, boasting more than 150,000+ tracks, the CBC Music/CBC Radio 3 web site is the absolute ultimate authority, and the home, of independent music in Canada. With that massive library along with tools for members (free to join!), we’re taking advantage of what they’ve set up by bringing you a fresh batch of music every week featuring local groups who have tracks (entire albums, even!) on the R3 site.
If you’ve never heard the talented Jenny Ritter perform before, this week is a GREAT time to do so. Jenny is putting on a show at the Biltmore on Thursday to raise funds for her new album, and will be playing lots of new music with members of Fish & Bird in her backing band. Also on the bill are Wooden Horsemen and Taylor Ashton, so you should most definitely go check it out.
We asked Jenny to put together this week’s playlist to celebrate, which she described as “a sort of mellow folky one with lots of space and feels” (which is why we love her). You can hear it by clicking the images below!:
