“Gurr sings with a husky sensuality, delivering her lyrics with both urgency and warmth” Marke Andrews, Vancouver Sun
Award-winning recording artist Babe Gurr has been turning heads for years with her blend of roots/blues/pop/world. Her warm and sultry voice, intelligent lyrics, memorable melodies and savvy personality add up to pretty much everything you want to see on a stage.
Babe’s new recording is a treat, although not always sweet. Hearts Up To The Sun – a five song EP – features Babe’s talents in full form as producer, singer and songwriter. Musically it is as hot as Louisiana hot sauce and the horn arrangements sound like they might well have come from there. Babe’s voice is sounding as good or better than ever. The band is great. But the songs? wow!- the songs mark a step forward. They are even better than the ones she won awards for with her last release- SideDish – works exploring world music fused with her own unique roots style and writing.
Babe has headlined at numerous festivals including Toronto’s Harbourfont Music Series, Vancouver Folk Music Festival, Pacific National Exhibition, Victoria Folkfest, First Night, Mission Folk Music Festival, Vancouver Island MusicFest, Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Music Festival, Filberg Festival and Islands Folk Festival. Playing some of the most popular and prestigious concert halls in Canada spanning from Vancouver Island to the Maritimes and U.S. dates in New York and Seattle, Babe Gurr’s name is becoming familiar to many more fans each day, people who appreciate finely crafted songs performed with sincerity.
This special concert is on for one night only! Babe has lent her talents to these fundraising concerts throughout the years and always enjoys performing at this intimate and welcoming venue.
