Paying homage to trailblazing female artists, the show features tunes by classic icons like Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, Dusty Springfield and Etta James as well as contemporary artists such as Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys, and Adele.
The stellar six-piece band is comprised of some of Vancouver’s finest musicians, led by gifted pianist/producer Kristian Alexandrov. Kristian is the longstanding music director for trumpet virtuoso Jens Lindemann’s “Brassfire” show, which was featured at Blue Frog in February 2017. On the studio front, Kristian has been a part of two juno-nominated CD's: Sweet Canadiana recorded by the Order of Canada Soloists (2017) and Legacy Live (2016) recorded by Jens Lindemann and Tommy Banks.
Kristian has co-written and produced four albums with Soul/R&B recording artist Shannon Gaye, described as “the slender singer with the big soulful voice”. Their most recent collaborations include: Shannon’s original CD Little Wonder - an acoustic gem with a modern spin, and Songs of Joy & Peace, Shannon’s new Christmas CD.
Britt and Carly McKillip were born and raised on the West coast - you may know them as the award-winning recording duo, One More Girl. Growing up in a musical family, Britt and Carly cut their teeth on all things entertainment: they’ve worked as actors since they were little, appearing in many prestigious film and television projects, and have shared the stage with artists such as Toby Keith, Darius Rucker and Keith Urban.
