It’s local. It’s unique. It’s only $10.
Staying current on up and coming musicians and being a working mom don’t always go hand in hand, but it’s just been made easier by my friend Jackie. She’s produced CD covering unsigned, up and coming Canadian talent. You can pick-up the CD at the downtown Chapters here in Ottawa. Not based in Ottawa? Contact her through her myspace page and you’ll no doubt be able to work something out.
You can read the background behind the project in today’s Citizen. If you’re looking to be extra hip, you can attend the CD launch party Thursday, June 25 at the Parliament Pub’s outdoor patio @ 9pm.
The CD’s targeted at the tourist market, but I love that it’s got local artists and even though I’m based in Ottawa it’s going to be my default hostess gift for the rest of the season.
