My little brother introduced me to the music of Jonna Emily Lee. Probably because she is Swedish. It is good enough a reason to get me interested in an artist. I am biased, I know… Mention Vikingland, and even if Denmark isn’t involved, I raise an eyebrow…
Tonight the mysterious singer was performing in Montréal for the first time. Little bro had bought the tickets, a couple of months back, inviting me to see her show. I had a feeling I’d enjoy it, but I got a warning, Ionnalee seemed to attract an awkward crowd.
It was an busy day at work… Kind of a full moon shift. I was drained before I even got out of the office. Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to go to a show after all. But Little Bro was excited about it, and I took the metro ride on an empty stomach, just to please him.
And what a good decision that was.
Ionnalee is a great performer. I might be getting older, but I still can recognize I good show when I see one, and I was thrilled to know I was among the first people tending her first show in Canada.
I even got an (a bit over priced) t-shirt, I’ll proudly wear in Denmark soon… Hoping someone asks me about it.
But if no one does, I won’t mind… I enjoyed the kind of show that no newspaper talks about. I danced, and clapped my hands, and I thought about a good friend that Ionnalee really reminded me of. Another great performer. Maybe not aswell known, but I hope she’ll see the similarity in my videos.
