Pony Girl team up with Gianna Lauren for seven date tour that includes performances at Flourish Festival.
Ottawa’s Pony Girl have become regular performers on the East Coast, playing anywhere and everywhere from coffee shops to festival stages across Atlantic Canada.
“A couple of us are Maritimers so there’s this affinity toward the coast,” said Pony Girl’s Greggory Clark.
Last summer the band was a headline performer at the new music festival, FUZE, presented as part of the New Brunswick Summer Music Festival where in addition to performing their own genre-bending set, the group where joined by a number of prominent classical musicians for a festival closing set of improv and experimentation.
“Fredericton is such a pleasure to visit on tour because so many shows get put on there,” said Clark. “The four or five times Pony Girl played in Fredericton has always been at new and cool spaces – Connexion ARC, Mazerolle Gallery, a DIY show at Reneu Boutique, UNB Arts Centre, and The Capital. We’re meeting new people and playing with new bands every time, which makes Fredericton kinda like the city that keeps on giving.”
When the band heads East this spring they’ll be performing their own material while also acting as the backing band for Gianna Lauren, whose new album Moving Parts is due out April 21 via Forward Music Group (available for pre-order here).
“Everyone was talking about Pony Girl when I moved to Ottawa in March 2016,” said Lauren. “I kept seeing their names on posters and hearing their songs on local radio. When I finally saw them live it was in a small garage-style room, and the vibe was beautiful. They are extremely talented musicians. I was impressed. Turns out they had been scoping me out as well and eventually approached me about teaming up if I ever needed a band. That time has finally come, and I am really pumped to play and tour with Pony Girl in April around my album release for Moving Parts.”
