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; Joe Piotrowski on electric guitar and Warren Stinson on drums
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, Journey and Prince, ears are delighted at the way they can perform a song's core while highlighting its passion.
We have gone into the studio and recorded our first album as a band (Lori's 2nd). We will be releasing it March 10th! Stay tuned for details!
