CANADIAN MUSIC WEEK HIGH

Winnipeg's Maiko Watson: my top pick of the week

Canadian Music Week drew many emerging musicians to venues across Toronto. But it was Winnipeg’s Maiko Watson’s voice that I recognized and loved. Once a member of Sugar Jones, a pop group created on the Canadian version of Popstars, she performed soulful tracks from her first solo album Sweet Vibration at a jam packed Czehoski. You can see Maiko Watson live at the Wrongbar on April 9.—Olga Bran
