2014 JUNO Nominee Alysha Brilla “Womyn” Album Release Party @ The Painted Lady (Wednesday, Oct 1)

Alysha Brilla, (2014 Juno Nominee) Womyn” Album Release showcase performance took place on Wed Oct 1, 2014 at The Painted Lady (218 Ossignton Avenue). 

Walking from my office located in the business district of downtown Toronto, to an intimate bar, The Painted Lady, I found myself feeling a little overdressed…but actually relaxed. As I made my way past the check-in and grabbed a seat at the bar, I took in the vibrant atmosphere. There were smiles all around me, people chatting, everyone saying hi as I made eye contact. It kind of reminded me of a small town atmosphere.

Everyone greeting everyone, and just being friendly. I struck up a quick conversation with “John”, the gentlemen next to me and found out he was quite a fan of Alysha. He had been listening to her for the last four years, and quite enthralled by her rock to reggae type music.

As I grabbed a drink and started talking to random people around me, I find that Alysha has quite an amazing following. CBC had a few tables of their own with their television crew. Breakfast Television had her on that morning at 7am for an interview. A number of audience people were also singers that were amazed at her abilities.

By 8:00pm, she arrived on stage. As I listened to her, I started to understand why she is becoming a rising star. Her lyrics are from personal experiences; her singing was enjoyable with an amazing beat. She mixed up her performance with a little reggae.

As I left The Painted Lady, I thought, what an amazing evening. I was able to witness a live concert in such an intimate venue. I know in a few more years, I may have to pay a fortune to listen to her sing in a larger concert setting. Alysha Brilla, a name definitely to remember!!
