SHOWBOX CONCERT SERIES ft…
Like glitter-infused jelly on toast, Ottawa’s Sparklesaurus spreads their shimmering sounds. The sounds can be described as living room dream pop – pairing the emotional rawness of garage with the lush tonalities of glam, set in a low-lit, carpeted living room.
“GINNY is the latest band formed in the nation’s capital with members of a bunch of other great bands. Fronted by vocalist Lesley Marshall (Bonnie Doon), guitarist Catriona Sturton (ex-Plumbtree), and bassist Kristy Nease (Area Resident), GINNY’s haunting country styling arrives just in time as we flirt with the return of spring but keep being reminded of the harshness of winter.” – Eric Scharf, OSBX

Her experiences coming up through Ottawa’s music scene as a solo artist has helped propel her to new heights as a musician, and have afforded her the opportunity to play in renowned bands such as Hilotrons and Little Scream.
