Alessia Cara w/ Craig Stickland – Danforth Music Hall, Toronto

It was a triumphant  homecoming for Brampton’s Alessia Cara at the Danforth Music Hall; the first of two sold-out shows at the 1,500-capacity Toronto venue. Cara effortlessly commanded the stage like a pro, confidently bouncing across the massive stage, mic in hand, smile on her face. Back in July of 2015, Alessia came into the Edge studios to promote her debut album Know-It-All and her then-soon-to-be smash single “Here.” Check out the photos and video from that session after the gallery below.

In the same vein as recent Swedish exports Icona Pop and Robyn, Tove Lo brought her Queen Of The Clouds tour to Toronto’s Sound Academy with her hooks, moves and a brief peep show exposing her naughty habits.
