Drowning Ophelia at the Blue Chair Cafe
Drowning Ophelia consists of twin sisters, Candace and Karli. Candace on bass, Karli on guitar, and for some songs on keys -- and a drummer, Jared Bradley. They come to Edmonton from Saskatchewan and have studied music at GMCC - like many local musicians. I didn't talk, just listened -- maybe they are GMCC students at present.
I had not seen (or heard) them before I arrived at the Blue Chair. The website explains that they come from a family of musicians, with different styles. The music ranged from jazz, to country, to pop. Easy to listen. Interesting tunes and delivery.
Drowning Ophelia recently won a Supernova.com battle of the bands, and plan to release a CD in the spring - not too far away. Watch for it, watch for them, and you might be saying "I saw them long before they were so famous.'
