Chris Rouse On The Rise
Finally made it down to Acoustic Soul Tuesdays at the Trane Studio (964 Bathurst St.). I wasn't disappointed.
This week the grassroots open mic/artist showcase featured Chris Rouse, who has got to be among the most polished R&B/Soul performers Toronto has to offer. Think a mix of Prince, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. He's got the stage presence, charisma and sex appeal to do big things.
Props go out to resident soulster Hajile Kalaike aka Lotus for putting on a cool weekly event. I was tempted to bumrush the stage and wow the crowd with my own singing prowess. Maybe next time.
