Lyrics matter as music to singer-songwriter Jasmine Bleile. She has a degree in English literature yet she’s also a bonafide rock and roller. She has the experience to prove that she’s paid her dues.
Jasmine is one of the founding members of Ladies of the Canyon. They signed to Warner Brothers Canada in 2009 and released two albums to wide acclaim: Haunted Woman (’10) & Diamond Heart (’13). While with her group, she toured all over Canada, the U.S. and Europe. Her extensive touring experience has allowed her to share the stage with a litany of musical luminaries such as the Barenaked Ladies, Ron Sexsmith, Kenny Rogers, Buffy St. Marie, Alan Jackson, Andy Kimm, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, just to mention a few.
Over the last two years, Jasmine has participated in the Rufas & Martha Wainwrights Noël Nights (broadcast on CBC/Radio-Canada) where she has sung with Robert Charlebois, Emmylou Harris, Daniel Belanger, Louis-Jean Cormier, Arianne Moffat, Rufas Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, Anna McGarrigle, Loudon Wainwright III, and Kid Koala.
Her music has been featured in the critically acclaimed television drama Sons of Anarchy (FX) and the mega-hit Heartland (CBC). She is currently doing voicework for upcoming animated short I Like Girls directed by Diana Obomsawin (NFB).
See Jasmine Bleile perform at the Dunvegan Recreation Hall with Jenn Grant on Saturday September 16th at 7:30 PM. Tickets here!
