Bluecorn Cafe & Mercantile and Pickin' Productions presents "Live at the Candle Factory.: Begonia w/ Special Guest”
Trip-hop beats and propulsive grooves pulse throughout Begonia's album, shadowing Dirks' stunning voice; she alternates between a dusky croon and an expressive, belting delivery. The album nods to vintage soul ("I'm Not Dying," "Crying") sunny R&B ("Bleeding Heart") and soaring balladry ("Chasing Every Sunrise"). Yet the album is firmly in the realm of contemporary music. Standout "The Only One" is modern, keyboard-polished pop that features Dirks' most powerful vocal performance on the album.
Pegged as Canada’s breakout alt-diva, Begonia has built a legion of fans online and at her legendary live shows. Between her debut EP & album (Lady in Mind and Fear respectively) she was named one of NPR’s Artists You Need to Know, had two #1 songs on Canada’s CBC national radio chart, was nominated for a JUNO Award for Alternative Album Of The Year and long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize. Fear spent 10 straight weeks as the #1 album in Canada on Earshot’s Top 50 chart and had songs synced to numerous Netflix and Oprah Winfrey Network shows.
