Sometimes stars align… and other times they simply tour together. While not household names, Matthew Barber and Oh Susanna have talent in spades. If playing fields were level, these two song writers would be viewed as Canadian music royalty.

 

Thankfully, the two have joined forces for the “He Said, She Said” tour and The Carleton gladly welcomes the duo. Remarkably, you can see both artists on June 20th for only twenty bucks.

 

I know we’ve talked about Matt incessantly over the last few years, but for some reason we never give Suzie Ungerleider the credit she deserves. Her new record, Soon the Birds is littered with talented guests, but the stars of the show are Oh Susanna’s voice and her ageless melodies. There’s something to be said about polished, professional records, ones that embrace a sense of perfection and patience. Just take a listen to “Drunk as Sailors” and get ready to sway.
