Rebecca Foon is a prominent member of the Montreal experimental music scene. Having participated in acts like Set Fires to Flames, Thee Silver Mt. Zion and Esmerine, she embarked on her own with her project Saltland, releasing its first album, I Thought it Was Us But It Was All of Us in 2013.

Anders Johansson (Diablo Swing Orchestra)


Anders Johansson (Diablo Swing Orchestra)

Posted Sept. 19, 2012, 6:56 a.m.
