Showcasing up-and-coming artists under the age of 25. All ages welcome!

No cover is charged for our Happy Hour performances, but we do pass a hat around the audience to collect donations for the performer. The owners of The Needle Vinyl Tavern were inspired to do this after witnessing the system in Austin, TX. There is never any pressure to donate, but it is appreciated as every penny goes to the performer(s). Thank you for supporting the local music scene!

Giselle Boehm
https://www.facebook.com/giselleboehm/
Giselle is an established Edmonton based vocalist and pianist, and is rapidly developing her reputation as an singer/songwriter. Her sound has repeatedly been compared to musicians such as Regina Spektor, Ingrid Michaelson, Feist, and Nora Jones - comparisons that reference her stylistically smooth vocals, thought-provoking lyrics, and her charming indie-pop appeal.

Influences of blues and jazz filter into her writing, however, Giselle's signature sound falls into the category of the uniquely modern, lyrical piano-ballad - a factor that is quickly defining her influence, and contribution, to the contemporary music scene. Lyrically and melodically, her songwriting examines concepts of nostalgia and memory, contemplating ideas relating to perspective and perception biases. Emotional tension, relationships, and their complexities are a never-ending source of inspiration for the content of her writing, causing her work to be strongly relatable, and her performance, calming, intimate, engaging, captivatingly personable, and not soon to be forgotten.*Links for online (facebook etc.)

Toni Foote
Toni Foote is an emerging songwriter from Edmonton who has recently started a solo project that weaves intricate finger picking stylings with thoughtful lyrics and honey-smooth vocals. Inspired by artists like Norah Jones and the Staves, Toni is quickly finding her own unique sound and is an up and coming talent to be watched.
