Gianna Lauren "Ghosts" on Exclaim! TV

Gianna Lauren 'Ghosts' on Exclaim! TV
Over the years, Halifax-based songwriter Gianna Lauren has been crafted her own version of folk pop music, which uses her soft voice to coat traditional musical arrangements with a haunting ambience. Following 2013's On Personhood EP, she has quietly released a new single called "Mistakes" from her upcoming fourth collection, Moon Through Window. Although details about the new release remain sparse, she has since announced an extensive Canadian summer tour. The dates are provided below.

During Canadian Music Week, we filmed a special session with the singer-songwriter at Kops Records in Toronto, where she performed the track "Ghosts" with her live band for this episode of Exclaim! TV.

As her signature dainty vocals and light guitar strumming set a warm atmosphere in the room, she balances the set with spurs of sudden distortion and loud drums, which make for a simple yet hypnotic performance.

Watch her session in the player below.
