Past song of the week / August 2016


From the album Juniper (Single)

Featured track, available from August 18 to August 26

Begonia burst onto the music scene this spring with the premiere of "Juniper", a stellar debut performance opening for Peter Bjorn & John at Jazz Fest, and a summer slate of live dates. The new solo project from acclaimed local artist Alexa Dirks (Chic Gamine, The New Lightweights, Courier News), Begonia landed in 99.1 Fresh Radio's Manitoba Fresh spotlight in the spring, hit the Interstellar Rodeo stage earlier this month, and takes on Rainbow Trout Music Festival this weekend. She's set to take centre stage in the picturesque setting of Falcon Trails Resort on August 25, right after some songwriter mentoring and co-writing at our Summer Songwriter Retreat. You can catch Begonia live next month at Brandon's Summer Lights Music Festival and the Harvest Moon Festival in Clearwater. Stay tuned for a brand new single -- a live cover of the Dirty Projectors' “Gun Has No Trigger” -- to be released on August 22. To keep your ears busy, we've got Begonia's tune Juniper for you as this week's featured song. Get it and don't mess your chance to see Begonia live on stage.
