Ember Swift is a Canadian singer-songwriter. Her music, which fuses elements of folk, pop, rock, punk and jazz, is frequently compared to Ani DiFranco. Swift runs her own independent record label, Few’ll Ignite Sound. Her touring and recording band consists of bassist and partner Lyndell Montgomery and drummer Adam Bowman. They perform approximately 150 dates a year bringing their politically charged music to stages across Canada, the U.S. and Australia. Ember Swift has also done the Woodford Folk Festival a few times over the years, hosting music and activist-related workshops there.

She is pulling (I think it’s a solo) gig down at The Corner Hotel in Richmond on Sunday the 24th September.

Tapped & Wired is off her previous album “Disarming” and is fairly indicative of what to expect at the show.

I really like the quote on her website…

The music (peformed in both English & French) sounds like: “The bilingual love child of Paul Simon and Laurie Anderson who is being raised by Joan Jett.”


is fascinated by guitars, music, guitars, production, silly noises, guitars and used to be a musician. Did I mention the thing about the guitars?
