JUMP with DELROSE!

Delrose! A giggling unassuming bright bundle of joy she is. She’s worked very hard on releasing her first CD and it was effort well-placed, in my opinion. I find Delrose’s voice instantly soothing and her music immediately singalongable. It is said that the reason we as humans write and perform music is to attract a group to sing along with us, to gather a crowd and mount a force of voices to keep the lions at bay. If this is true, there be no lions at a wienie roast where Delrose’s Jump be playing. It is sure to inspire a singalong. It is a delightful soundscape for the everyday and I recommend you Jump in and take a listen for yourself!

“JUMP released on April 12, 2014 and Delrose is more than ecstatic to share her music with a wider audience. Her songs run high on emotion. Her performances are heart-felt and true. Music is her way of life. It is what drives her. Singing is her drug of choice and songwriting is her therapy.”

By the amount of glee emanating from this pic of Delrose with Owen Huot and Juan Santos at Placebo Space in Toronto, I’d say Delrose’s musical drugs and therapy are working!

The sounds of Delrose are available for owning on iTunes and for soundscaping on Soundcloud!

Why not take a leap and go for a Jump! Get it? Get it!

Photo shoot with Lisa MacIntosh

Kat Leonard:

BABE ALERT! It’s not often that Cate of Life With More Cowbell is the subject of her own blog as she generously and beautifully uses her prose to promote others. As anyone who’s spent time with Cate knows, she is a force to be reckoned with and a charm of a character. She has so many talents, so much wisdom, the one of the kindest and truest hearts I have ever known, and she is also quite the looker, as these photos taken by Lisa MacIntosh illuminate. I for one am tickled inspired by these shots and so I share them with you. :)

Don’t forget to visit Cate’s blog Life With More Cowbell for news and insight on the Toronto arts scene and subscribe so you never miss a jingle of the Cowbell! :)

Had so much fun on Saturday, spending the early afternoon with photographer Lisa MacIntosh and makeup artist Rebecca Kupferstein up in the Studio at Alumnae Theatre for my white tie and tails vintage photo shoot.

Inspired by Lisa’s shoot with actress Kate Drummond, who sported a fab vintage look, as well as my experience playing Cecil Graham in Alumnae’s production of Oscar Wilde’s Lady Windermere’s Fan several years ago, I decided to go with a period look as a male impersonator, in white tie and tails. For the makeup, we were inspired by Julie Andrews as Victor in Victor/Victoria.

Here are some select pics from the shoot. Thanks so much to Lisa and Rebecca for their beautiful work!

Moving & grooving sounds + positive vibes = WonderFest 2014 concert

Kat Leonard:

WonderFest 2014 was wonderfilled because we had Life With More Cowbell!

SAMSUNG A fabulous, fun time was had by all at WonderFest 2014 and I was so glad to join in the festivities at the concert last night, closing off a day of learning, collaborating and positive interaction at Revival Bar . And after a full day of workshops (A Capella Jam with Niki Andre and a Synergy Session with Madette ), the gang was engergized and ready to go.

LMG Productions organizers Kat Leonard and Arlene Paculan hosted an amazing line-up of talent (aka Wonder Women & Super Men) from a variety of arts disciplines, including music, spoken word, stand-up comedy and visual arts. Visual artists included paintings – which were featured onstage – by Dorothy Knight, Rohan Moore and Stephanie Payne, and face painting by Lisa Diane.

The stellar roster of concert performers, in order of appearance, included:

Interview with Kat Leonard & Arlene Paculan on WonderFest 2014 event

Kat Leonard:

Life With More Cowbell: The lifeblood of WonderFest!

People like Cate from Cowbell are the reason Arlene Paculan and I do WonderFest; building a community of empowerment and encouragement within and without the arts. Thank you so much for ringing our bell, Cate! We love you! xo

WONDERFEST 2014 happens Sunday April 6 in Toronto! Giddy up!

POSTERwonder96 Kat Leonard and Arlene Paculan are both amazing solo artists in their own right. Together, they are Musedy Tag Team and half of the Four Winds Collective (with Heather Hill and Meghan Morrison ), performing music with heart and humour, and they are the force behind LMG Productions, spreading empowerment through art through their Wonder Women, Super Men and now WonderFest events. Leonard is also a well-known Johnny Depp fangirl and Paculan, like me, shares his birthday. I interviewed these two lovely and talented ladies over email about their work together and their upcoming WonderFest 2014 event on April 6 at Revival Bar in Toronto.

LWMC: So tell us about how you met and how you came to start working together.

AP: I met Kat at a Valentine’s Show. It was called No Sweetheart Required, so she calls it an anti-Valentine’s Day show. It was so amazing because I immediately…

The Four Winds latest performance, at The Beautiful & The Damned, gets a mention by TO Poet in his blog. How nice! Thanks, Duncan!

First feature Vanessa Smythe give a top-notch performance of polished, smooth and emotionally inviting pieces about sports bar fantasy meetings, break ups, making ups, and older sister realizations. ‘can’t we talk for a few minutes … about our favourite cereal boxes’, ‘I close the door like I’m closing our story book.’ She slips from character to another in a conversation without us losing track of who is speaking. A great performance.
