Virgo Rising (Man.)
Emily Sinclair and sisters Lauren and Jenna Wittmann have been making music together as Virgo Rising since 2018, releasing their first EP Sixteenth Sapphire in March of this year. Prior to that release, their live performances made waves in the Winnipeg area, named one of the best shows in the city two years in a row by readers of The Uniter, the University of Winnipeg and downtown community newspaper.
Their bedroom pop sound, a dreamy entwining of powerful guitar chords with Emily’s commanding vibrato, welcome the addition of warm harmonies atop violin, keys and trumpet. As producer Adam Fuhr of House of Wonder Records says, “These folks have boundless talent, and everyone should be watching out for them.”
