Elissa Barclay's WarriorGirl is a perfect fit for North by Northeast as she is a truly original and passionate song writer/performer. Elissa

grew up under the nihilistic shadow of the post punk/grunge era, a small town girl with a heart which engulfs the city and all its struggles and darkness, and its beauty and light. She enfolds the nihilism of her influences into her heart which explode through her music and her  contrasting and unique songs. Elissa's original music is filled with potent imagery and fresh lyrics which Elissa tries to channel with the frustration of her generation, the passions of her audience, as well as the fractured, the addicted, and the dispossessed. Elissa's struggle is the struggle of all people and all pain. a struggle transformed as the grub to the butterfly, the pain becomes radiant and beautiful.

    Elissa has honed her passion as a phoenix rising from the  ashes of the acoustic Guelph coffee houses, always transforming and ever forging her unique brand of edgy, sexy and brilliantly layered music.  Elissa expertly combines folk roots with powerful punk inspired intensity which she expertly commands contrasting gut wrenching screams with soft beautiful tones that can be heard in the best music clubs in Toronto. This has earned her the title of a true WarriorGirl. 

     Elissa Barclay's Warrior Girl has just finished mastering their debut album "Glass and Wire", soon to be released.  The songs contained in this application are from this new release.

On Dec 29th Elissa Barclay headlined the #DamnTheStereotypes to a full house at Tattoo Rock Parlour. Elissa has played the El Mocambo, Velvet Underground, The Cameron, The Horseshoe, The Tattoo Rock Parlour and much more since July 2013.

A professional musician and a pro band that should not be overlooked and would definitely benefit the festival. Thank you for your considerations
