Windsor Live Music: Emm Gryner is coming!


Emm Gryner will be playing Phog on April 27th with Royal Wood!
Our very own home-grown Dean Drouillard will be playing guitar for both artists as well.
Tickets are $10 even though they could sell at $15 or $20.
Spots can be reserved right now by simply paying the $10 and giving the names of the people being payed for. Your spot will be held.

If you want more details about Emm, try THIS link. It will make things clearer as to how significant of a performer she is...

Here's some info from that link:
"She then moved to Toronto, and the following year formed her own label, Dead Daisy Records, through which she released her second album, The Original Leap Year. In 1997 she was invited to play a set at Lilith Fair and subsequently was signed to Mercury Records in 1998, under whom she released her album Public.

After parting ways with the label in 1999, she released several more records under the Dead Daisy banner: Science Fair in 1999, Dead Relatives in 2000, Girl Versions in 2001, and Asianblue in 2002. The album Girl Versions is entirely covers, featuring heavy metal and rock tunes such as "Crazy Train" by Ozzy Osbourne and "Pour Some Sugar On Me" by Def Leppard. She toured extensively in David Bowie's backup band during 2000 and 2001. She also toured with Swedish band The Cardigans in 2004 on the Chicks With Attitude tour.

David Bowie named Gryner and Godspeed You! Black Emperor his two favorite Canadian acts during a promotional interview for his Reality album. In the November 2006 issue of Q Magazine, celebrating the magazine's 20th anniversary, U2 frontman Bono recognized the track "Almighty Love" from Emm's new album as one of six songs that he wished he had written from the last 20 years of music."
