Each month we’ll feature a video from one of GAC’s musical members. If you’re a musician and have a video you’d like us to feature, please send a YouTube link our way along with a short bio.
This month, we share one from The Waverlys. Half of this duo is Guelph’s Charlotte Moore, whom people may also know as one of the founders and organizers of Holy Smokes Music Festival that was held in Guelph in 2018 and 2019. The song in today’s video strays from the “guitar, cello, and vintage suitcase” described below, showing versatility from the duo while continuing to deliver powerful lyrics. As a bit of bonus local flavour, this video was made by Guelph artist Garth Laidlaw.
The Waverlys are an Alternative-Folk duo composed of cellist, vocalist and Guelph native, Charlotte Moore and Toronto based singer/songwriter Kevin Myles Wilson. The two met while playing in the Folk band Wool and Howl in 2016 and slowly began working on a new project that would soon become The Waverlys. With minimal instrumentation; a guitar, a cello and a vintage suitcase transformed in to a kickdrum, The Waverlys, led by smooth, sincere and haunting vocals, tell timeless tales of love, loss and rebellion with a feminist twist. Their first EP is called “Good Girl” and was released in 2018.
Visit The Waverlys on Bandcamp to purchase their Good Girl EP. During the current pandemic, Bandcamp has announced that they will be forgoing their share of artist sales on the first Friday of May (1st tomorrow!), June (5th) and July (3rd), so you will be further supporting the artists with your purchases on these days.
