Serena Pryne and the Mandevilles perform as part of Indie Week’s line-up at the PeteVillage Street Festival in Peterborough this Saturday. The band’s name is spelled wrong on the festival’s flyer, but this is no skin off Pryne’s back. A couple years ago, Pryne and her guitarist Nick Lesyk were set to record their first international release down in Texas, but then their label folded. Pryne and Lesyk persevered, continued to write heartfelt songs soaked in what they say is whiskey, sweat and tears. We agree. The band plays resonating rock that fuses jazz and blues, revealed through genuine lyrics. They’ll be performing tracks off their debut album Goodnight Golden Sun on Saturday and at Indie Week in October.
Indie Week takes place in Toronto from October 10-14. Check out IndieWeek.com for more detailed information, ticket purchases and performance date announcements. Follow @IndieWeek on Twitter for updates.
