Music has the power to inspire and ignite change, says singer-songwriter Little Scream
Last week, q embarked on a field trip to Guelph, Ont., where host Tom Power took the stage at the River Run Centre to put on a live show for the Hillside Inside Festival.
The event was kicked off by Laurel Sprengelmeyer, also known as Little Scream. The American-born, Montreal-based musician opened up with a mesmerizing performance from her new album Speed Queen before chatting with Power about music's ability to inspire and ignite change.
"On this last record, I was more preoccupied with just also trying to say those things in song, which is not the easiest thing to do always," she said. "I felt like I was able to bring a more whole sense of myself actually too."
Little Scream's new album Speed Queen is out now. She will be playing at the Troubadour Festival in Barrie, Ont., on Sunday, Sept. 20.
