"10 queer Toronto bands you should be listening to"

"Toronto's got it good when it comes to a supply of talented queer bands and musicians. But what does it mean to be a queer musician? What makes these artists different than any others? Like all minorities, there are differences in certain ways we experience life, especially when it comes to love, loss, and relationships. These musicians provide a voice for our stories. Perhaps you can relate to the downfalls of having PMS to the power of two. Or, you know what it's like to pretend you don't recognize your barista from Grindr. Whatever it may be, what I'm trying to say is this - queer musicians have a way of putting our experiences into just the right words.

Names like Diamond Rings, Ohbijou, and Owen Pallett are pretty much on everyone's radar, so this list sets out to highlight those who aren't quite as widely known. The following ten bands and musicians range from veterans of the industry to young up-and-comers; all possessing the ability to create outstanding music.

Courtney Lynn
In the last four years, Courtney Lynn has taken her poetic solo-project to venues like The Drake Hotel, Rivoli and The Cameron House. She's opened for The Strumbellas, Dan Griffin of the Arkells, and Forest City Lovers. Her expertly crafted independent debut The Green Wood Symphony has a quirky modern folk feel, and was recognized with a nomination for Best Acoustic Song by the Independent Music Awards." - blogTO

"Raspy voice, honest lyrics set to rock Music Club"

Singer-songwriters Sharon Nutsati and Courtney Lynn will both take the London Music Club stage Thursday night — embarking on their debut Canadian tour.

Be the first to hear these ladies sing, as they take their sounds throughout the country. Look forward to Nusati’s raspy but incredible voice and her honest, thoughtful lyrics, as heard on the track Hero: “I wonder what keeps a person going for so long / I wonder what keeps a person growing to be strong / Why am I not strong.”

Nusati has released one EP to date (Stuck in Your Dreams) and has another on the way. The Thornhill-based artist has performed at various cafes and clubs in Toronto, has been recognized for her songwriting (placing in the top 10 for the 2011 SASS songwriting contest), and is slowly but surely garnering attention, with her latest single making it to airwaves. Expect big things for this young thing (she’ll be 20 as of April 26).

As for Courtney Lynn, she’s a Toronto-based artist rocking a poetic solo project. She’s been performing at various venues for four years (and counting), sharing her modern folk sound and acoustic guitar style. The Green Wood Symphony is her debut album, and its single, Little Miss Sunshine, picked up an Independent Music Award Nomination for Best Acoustic Song.

To preview Lynn’s sound, skip over to, and start with Nameless, on which she sings: “I’ve been thinking about you for days / And how no one could ever forget your name.”

You can find both Nutsati and Lynn in the LMC’s Front Room Thursday night. Cover is $7, and the show starts at 9 p.m. (doors are at 8:30 p.m.). - London Free Press
