I recently had the pleasure of performing with Castle If (aka Jess Forrest) in Saskatoon at Jale (the event space above Cafe Sola). She’s a really unique character whom I find quite intriguing…her music is synthy and kraut-influenced, with a splash of sort of an electronic goth vibe. Check out the videos and see what you think of our fresh …
