Now here is one brave creative concept. Alissa Vox Raw (Alissa Klug) describes herself as "a vocal/instrumental looper", and she terms her recently released EP VOX "indie/soul/ experimental a cappella". She possesses a strong and soulful voice that occasionally brings PJ Harvey and Anna Calvi to mind, and this is sometimes complemented by sparse but effective sonic loops. The results are compelling on these varied original compositions.
The disc was recently launched at Supermarket in Toronto. Vox has performed extensively on the T.O. circuit and last year appeared at the SING! Texas fest in Austin. Check her website for upcoming gigs.
