Sheena Grobb Record Release Party

This album has been described as “ethereal” and “out of this world” by people who have heard the rough mixes (produced here but being mastered at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London, England). You can hear it in person, live on September 14.

Canadian songstress Sheena Grobb’s emotionally grounding performance style along with an impressive repertoire of original songs continually test the limits of her musicality as a singer/songwriter, pianist, guitarist, and literary performer. With a brilliant Mezzo Soprano voice, Sheena’s songs are underscored by a soothing presence and the sophistication of a classical influence. Sheena weaves poetic subtleties together with honest and simple truths, often recognized most by those who experience music on a transcendent level. The profound kinship that Sheena shares with her dedicated following is a reflection of her universal appeal as a quiet recorder of the human condition.

If you’re interested in going with other LACERs, email praxis2121@gmail.com by September 1.
