The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY/ENTERTAINMENT -

Per­form­ing artists Ly­dia Per­saud and Jill Chan­dler will play the Trail­side Mu­sic Cafe’ & Inn this evening in

Mount Ste­wart.

Hail­ing from Toronto, Per­saud com­bines the rich sounds of soul, jazz and R&B, draw­ing her in­flu­ences from Ste­vie Won­der, Gretchen Par­lato and Jill Scott.

She won the Os­car Peterson award in 2013, the first fe­male re­cip­i­ent from Hum­ber Col­lege.

Chan­dler is an Is­land-born singer-song­writer. Her songs re­flect her jour­ney through grief af­ter los­ing her hus­band died from can­cer in 2013. Chan­dler sang pro­fes­sion­ally in Char­lot­te­town and Halifax, but left mu­sic be­hind when she be­came a mom. She has re­turned to song­writ­ing as a way of heal­ing.
