Sounds of Toronto: Faith Nolan

As I was biking through Kensington on Monday night, I came across something of a photo shoot. On the corner of Nassau and Augusta, a photographer from Xtra was snapping photos of a woman who with a guitar, harmonica and sweet voice was spreading soulful sounds through the streets of the Market.

The singer was Faith Nolan. Although she was about to pack up for the night, Faith was good enough to stick around and let me record one of her songs. Here it is along with a short Q&A.

Listen to the MP3 file

(Interview comes first. Then the song. Time: 9:54. 3.4 MB. That's the sound of Kensington and the Xtra reporter laughing in the background)

On August 19th, Faith will be playing at Camp Sis.
