Begonia - First Play Live

"The throughline of the album is just me yelling at things that I'm scared of, and being like, 'Go away!'"
That's Begonia, a.k.a. Alexa Dirks, talking about her upcoming solo album, Fear, due out Sept. 13. The proud Winnipeg singer-songwriter is seemingly very comfortable sharing the inner turmoil she mined over the course of a couple of years to develop her full-length debut.
"I'm very much a person that's like, you should feel all your feelings and name your fears so that you can actually overcome them."
Listen as two-thirds of the O'Pears (Jillian Harris and Meg Contini) join Begonia and her band in gripping, powerful performances of all the songs from Fear for the very first time.
