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, Winnipeg singer-songwriter Begonia drops by the studio to perform a few new songs from her debut album, Fear. On the album, Begonia explores her feelings of fear, anxiety and self-doubt, and translates those negative emotions into show-stopping vocal lines.

Fear is out everywhere now. You can catch Begonia on tour throughout Canada and the U.S.
