Win Tickets to Selah Sue in Vancouver

Comments 16 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Selah Sue, a Belgian musician and songwriter, will be playing VENUE in Vancouver on Tuesday, August 20, 2013. Her debut album Selah Sue was released in Europe in 2011 and it gardnered her a European Border Breakers Award that year. The following year she won another EBBA for People’s Choice. Her album was released in the United States in 2012 and has received much positive press.

Even without romanticising it, her story is like a fairy tale. It’s the story of a young musician who ignores her fate, and pours her anxieties into her songs and her guitar. “I had all these worries and depressions that I wrote down, it was a way of structuring my thoughts”. She turns her doubts into soul, funk and reggae melodies, trying hard to be worthy of her idols, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu and Bob Marley. She sings in local clubs on the weekend and attends high school during the week. She records in home‐studios, at friends houses, and publishes drafts of her songs on Myspace, without a thought of making a career in music.

Tickets are $15 (+ GST) through Live Nation, by phone 1-855-985-5000, at Red Cat Records, or all Ticketmaster outlets. If you would like to see Selah Sue in person, I have a pair of tickets for the show to give away thanks to Live Nation. Here’s how you can enter to win:

    I’m a Belgian girl living in Vancouver. I was walking on Commercial Drive and suddenly noticed a poster of Selah Sue’s show. At first I didn’t think of anything as I’m used to see her name showing up everywhere in Belgium. But a few moments later I realized. Hey, wait, this girl is from the city where I was used to live and she’s playing a show in Vancouver. How amazing is that!!!
