You can not miss this Canadian Singer
If you like electronic music, then you will not be disappointed by Jessy Lanza, a 31 year old Canadian singer and producer from Ontario who will be giving a concert in Hasselt the 8th of November at 20:00 at the Muziekodroom Box. Jessy is one of the most promising music icons in Canada! Her genres are a mix between Synthpop, R&B, DancePop and Experimental Pop.
Since very little age, she has played the piano and the clarinet. When she grew up she spesialised in jazz music which now reflects on her energetic and dynamic songs! She has been rated as one of the best artists in 2013 and in one of her albums “pull back my hair” was described by the Guardian as “the latest and possibly greatest of the new ethereal soul girls”. This album, which was co-written and co-produces with Jeremy Greenspan , was a shortlisted nominee in 2014 for one of the biggest prizes regarding music, the Polaris Music Prize.
Some of the most remarkable influences that have guided Jessy’s career in music were Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul. Their music inspired Jessy in her work and it certainly gave her the keys for such an amazing result!
But these two music artists have not been the only ones that indirectly have shaped Jessy’s music. Recently, Jessy said that Missy Elliot and Timbaland have also been responsible in writing her songs.
If you are still doubting about going to this concert you may want to take a peak at her latest songs, that are gathered in her latest album “Oh no”. You can look them up in Deezer or Soundcloud for free! Also you may want to check out Jessy’s Facebook or Twitter where you will find more information about the artist.
