The Small Glories milk the rich acoustic singer-songwriter tradition with well-crafted, engaging songs and striking vocal harmonies. Luft grew up in a musical family singing and playing a number of acoustic instruments in our own fair town. Prior to formalizing this musical partnership in Winnipeg, she released three solo records and one as a member of The Wailin’ Jennys. Oshawa born and raised, Edwards established himself in Winnipeg as the lead singer of the JD Edwards Band, characterized by his gritty vocals and influenced by exposure to gospel music at church. When these two singer’s voices blend naturally and splendidly in harmony, the results are glorious, magical, and goosebump-inducing.
The evocative music of the Northern Beauties echoes the stunning prairie foothills that shape their songs: timeless, rocky formations that have found natural, harmonious balance with organic, deeply anchored roots.
