This girl has a voice that keeps your ear drawn in. It’s clear and controlled. It carries beautiful catchy melodies that engage your minutes with a smile. Her name is Anie Hepher. She is the talented lead vocalist for the Cranbrook based musical quartet known as Redgirl.
Redgirl is a rootsy, four-piece band that double dips in organic folk with milky-mild rock rhythms. The music is built around the clear and fearless vocals of Anie Hepher. Her evocative voice is as approachable as it is confident. Michael Hepher (Anie’s husband) on lead guitar and backing vocals, brings a sauciness of sound that adds flavour, depth and kick to the songs and stories of the band.
Bringing it all home are the steady, ready bass notes of Steve Jones (bass & backing vocals) and inventive and attentive rhythms of Sven Heyde (drums & percussion). This fresh and genuine quartet is coming to the Stage at the Art Station this week in Fernie. If you like to indulge in some sweet ear candy, you won’t want to miss out on this fantastically tasty act.
Redgirl is presented by the Fernie Arts Station this Friday, October 14 at 8 p.m.
