A nice mellow song for a nice mellow Sunday. Canadian singer songwriter Mo Kenney performs her song “The Great Escape” live at the CBC studio. The tune comes from her self-titled debut album, released in 2012. Born in Nova Scotia in 1990, she has a great future, especially if she continues to collaborate with one of my favourites, Joel Plaskett, who produced her record. Have a great Sunday.

I originally posted this as one of my 2012 favourites and have chosen to go back to it as it deserves its own place here. Mo Kenney is a rising artist out of Nova Scotia, Canada. She is but 22, yet has played and recorded since 14. This song has put her on the map somewhat up here in Canada, and should receive more recognition elsewhere. The video is a duet with another terrific talent, Joel Plaskett and recorded live at CBC. The song has an interesting feel to it in my mind. Very subtle, yet powerful, very simple yet unique.
