A Concert with Emm Gryner at East Street Station

21 Mar
Canada Am

Steve, Ashley, Royal, Emm and Jenna

In 2010 I started back-up singing for a woman named Emm Gryner, we had met during a weekend getaway at Brentwood on the Beach in St. Josephs with 17 other women. We all thought she was pretty cool, here are some of her details: Emm is a Canadian pop/rock singer-songwriter with several albums to her credit. She won the Canadian Music Publisher’s Songwriting scholarship, the Radiostar Songwriting Contest and has been nominated three times for a Juno Award (Canadian Grammy), twice for Best Pop Album… and she also sang back-up for David Bowie!!!

I always joke that Emm asked Ashley Anderson and I to sing with her, without ever really hearing us sing! She must like us though, cause she has asked us to back her up multiple times in the past year.We even got to sing on Canada AM with her and Royal Wood and we shared the stage with Kaylan Porter too!!! Another three great things about all of this has been: Meeting Steve the bass player and Darryl the sound guy and watching Emm’s son Ronan get bigger at each gig!

Late in 2010 Emm said it would be neat to do a gig in our home town with us… so it is finally happening! To make things even better, we are singing at the East Street Station for their one year Anniversary – April 2 (which also happens to be my boyfriends birthday!). I heard today from Amy at the East Street station that tickets are 1/3 sold already, so if you want a ticket here are the details:
