Shhh was in a band in grade 12 and was kicked out because she couldn’t play any instruments. She has since toured the UK and Europe, played at multiple festivals, and made national campus and community radio charts (and she still can’t really play any instruments!). But none of that can fill the void.
She started going to local shows in 2010 (first local bands she saw: Single Mothers and A Horse and His Boy), and started playing as Shhh in 2013. She’s organized some shows and events at various small venues in the city, and had a music show called Play Dead Radio on CHRW for four and a half years. Shhh also volunteers for the London Girls Rock Camp every summer!
Bands/Musicians: Frankie Cosmos and Kate Bush
Album: Any Other City by Life Without Buildings

Q & A
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you on stage or at a show?
During my performance at Grickle Grass Festival in 2017 I got to drink beer out of Ronald McDonald’s crotch.
If you could get one celebrity, alive or otherwise, to listen to your music, who would it be?
Yessica Woahneil and I slipped Chris Fleming our split cassette when we saw him perform at Soho Theatre in London, UK. So, if he’s listened to it, that dream has already come true.
What’s one thing you like to do before a show?
I get a nervous bladder and like to go pee several times, but barely anything comes out.
What’s one thing you like to do after a show?
