This month’s #ygkPlaylist puts the spotlight on a very well-known Kingston artist, an up and coming local band and a budding blues guitarist. Miss Emily can be heard performing anywhere from Market Square to the KRock Centre and very often at local fundraising events. Between The Hollows have a sound that is all their own, and blues guitarist Adam De Rocco has recently begun recording in his own home studio. Each of these artists offers something a bit different. Have a listen to October’s #ygkPlaylist and be sure to spend some time checking out other tunes by these talented artists.
Miss Emily: If you’ve been in Kingston for more than five minutes, you likely know who Emily Fennell is. Miss Emily has worked in various formations from full rock band to intimate duos, and as a solo act. She has worked regularly with Chris Koster, members of The Tragically Hip and has received accolades from Gene Simmons (KISS) & Matt Wells (MuchMoreMusic). She’ll opening for Blue Rodeo next month, then going on tour in the UK as part of the Light of Day Tour. Find Miss Emily on SoundCloud, Facebook and Twitter.
Adam De Rocco: Adam De Rocco has been playing the guitar since he was about 10 years old.
