Following on from the great success of the Tyler Battles the Cactopus gig in July, Jimo Cafe and PEPY present a live performance from JindaLee Lehmann.
The event will be 7 to 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 13, at Jimo Cafe in Hatchobori, Hiroshima city. The event was organized by Hiroshima city JET Laura Graham.
JindaLee is musician from Montreal, Canada, and currently a JET in Fukuyama. Combining a variety of styles but stemming primarily from folk and indie rock, her debut album, entitled Stranger’s Lives, is composed of songs inspired by the people that pass through our lives everyday or even just once….described as a ‘train ride through the seasons’ on the website http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/jindalee (where you can also download the album).
JindaLee was born and raised in small town Alberta. She began singing and playing guitar as a self taught artist, while living in Munich, Germany. She went to Montreal in 2004 to study Creative Writing at Concordia University. JindaLee began playing small shows, zine launches and at alternative performance spaces which soon led to her own shows at cafés and bigger concert venues. Her interest in various genres is evident in the subtle nuances of the album. Her fascination with travelling led her to Japan, and the people she meets along the way help inspire the lyrics for the songs she writes.
