Local Singer Competes For Top Spot In Cowboys Dance Hall Contest

Lindsay Rae [Sinclair] has been singing since her childhood, but it wasn’t until her late teenage years that she felt comfortable with her voice and the power that she is capable of delivering.

“I used to do a lot of karaoke in my hometown of Pincher Creek and it was always a great feeling to be able to sing along to songs that I enjoy and add my own flare to them”

~Lindsay Rae (aka Ms. Vengeance)

Felipe Alberto Releases Debut Album To Sold Out Audience

June 27 couldn’t have come any sooner for Felipe Alberto, who released his debut album entitled “Alma del Ayer”, to a sold out audience at Lolita’s Lounge.

“Sometimes I forget that these songs were recorded nearly 2 years ago. I started working on this album in 2013, but playing them live always brings back the nostalgia of the many hours spent in the studio.”

~Felipe Alberto

Felipe released the following statement after the CD Release Show:

“What an amazing evening sharing culture through the vehicles of food, drink, dance, and traditional music, at the Calgary album launch party of “Alma del Ayer”. From the moment I walked on stage, the response from the crowd transported the evening to another time and place”
“Una noche increíble compartiendo cultura por medio de comida, bebida, baile, y por supuesto, música tradicional, en el laxamiento de Alma del Ayer. Desde que subí al escenario la respuesta del público transportó la noche entera hacia otros tiempos y lares lejanos.”
Felipe Alberto
