A musical chameleon, Tanya Lipscomb will be shaking it down in Fernie this weekend with some bluesy jazz, folky funk, soulful rock and gospel. This spicy one woman show is a real and raw Canadian performer. With crisp, fresh lyrics that have won numerous awards, and a rich, soulful three octave voice, Lipscomb has managed to produce a sound your ears are aching to hear. Touring as a multi-instrumentalist loop pedal artist, she has brought audiences to tears, to laughter and to the dance floor all on her own.
Born in Edmonton, raised in the Ottawa valley, and currently a resident of B.C., Lipscomb started writing songs at the tender age of three years old. A few plays and musicals later, at 12 years young, she started her first band and has performed on stages across Canada, opening for or sharing the stage with the likes of Tom Cochrane, Wide Mouth Mason, Mama Guroove, Russel Jackson, Buddy Guy, Lonnie Shields Band and Luluk Purwanto. Currently, Tanya is living in the beautiful Okanagan city of Vernon, B.C., where she is recording her 11th and 12th albums set to release this July and is heading out on another cross Canada tour to promote them.
With contagious charisma, remarkable stage presence and interactive performances, Tanya often transforms the audience into the performers as young and old sing along. Not just a singer-songwriter; Tanya Lipscomb is an entertainer!
Check her out at The Brickhouse on Saturday, May 10 playing blues, rock, soul, hip hop and funk. She’ll also be playing a Mother’s Day concert at Infinitea on Sunday, May 11
