Dana Carly Andrews croons in Finch

Ontario singer-songwriter has brought her raw talent to Halifax. See her at Minstrels on Friday night.

Another Ontario singer-songwriter has brought her raw talent to Halifax. Unintentionally following the trail of Jill Barber before her, 21-year-old Dana Carly Andrews has drawn limitless inspiration from her loves and losses, both in Halifax and back home. At her free show Friday night at Minstrels, the singer-artist-actor might just break your heart with lyrics taken from 24 diaries kept daily since junior high. "You're my humiliation at 13, finding the boys in the schoolyard reading love letters right out of my purse," she croons in one toe-tappin' tune off her self-released album, Finch. Andrews already has an international fan base, but hipsters who attend her show can say, one year from now, they heard her before she made it big.
