Yo, Eaves!

May 25, 2018 | Miss Eaves

What’s great about Montreal, is that summer always falls on the first day of spring. That’s when the weather drastically becomes super nice, and festivals start promoting shows and announcing lineups!

My time in MTL as an artist has allowed me so many awesome opportunities to organize shows, curate lineups, and meet people that not only I get to perform with, but later get to book. I met Shanthony, alias Miss Eaves, a year ago when she performed at my band’s final fundraising party/send-off before our big trip to Senegal; before that, I had no idea what kind of accolades she had already earned for herself! From HuffPost to Billboard, this femcee has been making all kinds of noise, and even has her music featured on Issa Rae’s Insecure! But what I love about her the most is her artistry. Her videos are always so much fun to watch and has a very polished DIY sense to it, as oxymoronic as that may sound. Yet another artist who in my book, needs their own TV series.

You can catch her at this year’s Suoni Per Il Popolo festival June 9th at La Vitrola, with my other good friends Tshizimba and Kayiri as the opening acts. Black Excellence all around! ♥
