In a segment that we call the q Thursday Headliner, we invite a band or artist we think you need to hear to kick off the show with a live performance. This week, Vancouver singer-songwriter Alexandria Maillot drops by the studio with her band to perform a few new songs from her upcoming sophomore album, Benevolence.

Maillot was joined by Daniel Baxter on guitar, Laura Reznek on violin, Astrid Lyre on bass and Arthur Delahooke on drums. Benevolence drops next week.
