Montreal-based indie singer-songwriter Emily Rockarts’ Little Flower is bursting with sonic easter eggs. Poised, polished, poppy and endearing, it’s hard to believe it’s a debut album.
Rockarts’ 2016 EP Mapmaker saw Rockarts and her band traversing Canada’s map, alongside a few top 20 appearances on !earshot charts, as well as airplay of “Whale Song” on CBC’s The Sunday Edition.
Rockarts, a self-confessed extroverted introvert, is a cool and comfortable, sharp-eyed observer much like the wallflower in Little Flower’s lilting title track. Little Flower is available now on digital, vinyl and CD.
