Vancouver singer/songwriter Savvie is set to head out on a Western Canadian tour with Bend Sinister beginning June 12th. In advance of the tour Savvie has put out a live video for “Dreams of Surrender” from a performance in Vancouver, which you can watch below. I hadn’t come across her material before but this live video definitely has me hooked, as Savvie has an incredible voice that’s supported by some driving rock rhythms. Her new album Night Eyes came out back in February, and can be streamed below via Soundcloud. Hopefully at some point U.S. tours come together, as I’d love to witness this performance in person. Check out the full list of Canadian dates below.
Vancouver rock songstress SAVVIE is excited to announce a Western Canadian tour with Bend Sinister this June. In support of the upcoming tour, SAVVIE has released a live video for the track ’Dreams of Surrender’ filmed in Vancouver’s Juniper Room. Watch here.
Following several showcases at Canadian Music Week and shows with Royal Tusk earlier this month, SAVVIE is excited to hit the road again, making stops in Kelowna, Red Deer, Saskatoon and more. She has received critical acclaim across the country for her debut full-length record Night Eyes, with a recent review in Beatroute Magazine stating that “Night Eyes is an insightful triumph that displays the power and prowess of her independence. And, best of all, it’s comin’ straight from the heart.” Night Eyes has climbed the !earshot National top 50 charts, with the single “It’s OK” reaching the top 5 on CBC Radio 3’s R3-30. Most recently, SAVVIE’s track “Break You In” was remixed by indie-electronic duo HUMANS. Listen here.

Hailing from Vancouver, Savannah Leigh Wellman is no stranger to the Canadian music scene, previously performing in Redbird and Portage and Main. Her newest incarnation, SAVVIE, is sexy, gritty rock ‘n’ roll, backing up addictive pop gems with a fierce power, delving into the murky depths of lust, love, and everything in between. Her debut full-length record Night Eyes, produced by Matt Rogers (The Harpoonist And The Axe Murderer), is a courageous debut that shines a spotlight on Wellman’s penchant for crafting sparkling, hip-swaying tunes. It’s sharp, sexy, and nuanced, with a laser-focus on irresistible melodies and big head-nodding choruses.
“Putting the bright-eyed folk of Redbird behind her, singer-songwriter Savannah Leigh Wellman favours slinking postsunset sounds on Night Eyes, the full-length debut from her new project, SAVVIE.”- The Georgia Straight
