Sylvie and Ghosts to Play Much Music Show

MuchMusic will be in Regina, SK on July 14 taping the happenings of the Queen City. Two of the bands that they’ll be taping live and doing interviews with are Sylvie and GOMM. So if you’re in Regina on that date, head to The Exchange for the Much Does SK show which features both of those bands. And give VJ Chris Nelson a big hug. Or, spill some soapy water on him. He loves getting soapy water dumped on him.

Sylvie Receives CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award At NXNE

After playing their hearts out for a packed and enthusiastic crowd in Toronto’s Horseshoe this past Saturday, Sylvie was honoured on stage with the CBC Galaxie Award for NXNE 2006. 

The Galaxie Rising Stars Program of the CBC is an original program designed to champion up-and-coming Canadian artists. Launched in 1998, this program sets out to discover, encourage and promote new artists.  Past recipients include The Arcade Fire, The Ladies and Gentlemen (Small Sins), and Great Lake Swimmers.


A live broadcast of Sylvie’s NXNE performance is available through CBC Radio 3 / Sirius Satellite Radio.  Sylvie has also recently recorded three in-session new songs for CBC Radio 3 in Vancouver.  Listen here!


Sylvie’s latest album, An Electric Trace, was released in October 2005 on Smallman Records.  Described as ‘absolutely brilliant’ (Scene&Heard), ‘stunningly awesome’ (Leader Post), and ‘one of the next big Canadian bands’ (Gauntlet), An Electric Trace is an album as rich in complexity as it is persuasively danceable.
