This week’s Listen Local brings you an indie super-group fronted by Edmonton’s hometown hero, Colleen Brown.
Brown’s voice has been compared to Joni Mitchell for good reason – her ability to shift gears with a mid-note lilt brings life to her delivery. Her songwriting ain’t half bad either.
Major Love is Colleen Brown’s newest musical identity. I love the name and the positivity it puts forth. Major Love’s debut self-titled album shines.
Just watch this video for “So Good” and try not to smile just a little. Not possible, right? I mean … popsicles AND roller-skating?
Here’s where the supergroup bit comes in.
Major Love includes Jesse Northey of Jesse and the Dandelions as well as members of Scenic Route to Alaska, alongside other accomplished music-makers.
Give this new album a listen. I’m pretty sure you just might love it. Like, major.
