This musically blessed, white-mopped woman hails from Winnipeg, a surprisingly rich ore of great independent music. Her sound is severely simple, often only consisting of a piano, cello, bells, and her own crisp voice. However, the lack of instruments is no matter. Christine Fellows is simply good. Her flawless, often three-part harmonies are sweet and well scattered throughout her songs. Her lyrics are profound, thought-provoking, and whimsical. A real Canadian gem, Fellows is now touring with The Mountain Goats, a band I may post on shortly. Try and catch the two acts if you can; they are sure to be a good show.
