Askher Music : Singer Songwriter Lori Girard

Lori Girard

 

In 2013, after almost a decade of work, singer songwriter, Lori Girard released her first independent album: Askher. During that decade, she gigged in and around London, Ontario solo with her crappy acoustic guitar beside and sometimes along with a fairly lengthy list of awesome musicians at a bunch of events and venues. After the album, she went on a small tour through western Canada and came home and decided to buy a good guitar. But then, after many, many, many attempts at putting a band together, no drummer would stay and she had pretty much given up hope. It seemed like the end. No one would hear their old favourites from the album or any of her new lyrically blunt, catchy and melodic original tunes. But don't fret, this is not a sad story. Lori has recently got her groove back with the very talented and incredibly versatile musicians: Ryan Cruickshank on bass (Rail City Kings/The Wives); Joe Piotrowski on electric guitar (A fifth of Jazz/Friday Night's Alibi) and Warren Stinson on drums (Over the Eight/L.O.S.T.) Askher is alive again! They are a rock/country/pop/adult contemporary/folk-rock/classic rock/cover/original band. With influences like Alanis Morisette, Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow, Janis Joplin and Amy Winehouse while performing artists like Bruce Springsteen, Micheal Jackson, the killers, Lorde and Prince, ears are delighted at the way they can perform a song's core while highlighting its passion. The best part is not only will they be playing live again, Askher will be writing and recording their next album, this time as a band!
