Anyone can come along! I try to make my events ALL AGES as much as possible, so keep your eyes peeled for that info. ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT. Together we will celebrate all that we have in common across our different cultures and have a good old time doing it!
Based in Edmonton, formerly in Calgary, 0Stella tours Canada and Europe throughout the year.
0Stella [oh-Stella] is ruthlessly authentic alt-rock blended with traditional Irish fiddle to create catchy pop melodies with oft-politically charged lyrics drenched in irony and rebelliousness. 0Stella’s music is both socially conscious and confessional, addressing human rights and environmentalism.
Little Yes, Little Know was produced and recorded by JUNO-nominated, Brad Simons (Nuela Charles, Adult Contemporary Album of the Year, 2019) at Velveteen Audio, Edmonton. The four-track EP features righteous rock songs amongst shimmering fiddle with lush, brooding laments. 0Stella says, “Brad was able to balance my love for sonic intimacy with blistering riot-rock”.
Written over the course of a year, songs such as the lead single “Fire” and “Pandora”, draw on personal struggles, to create a body of work that comforts hearts in a rising tide; be it physical or emotional. In recent years, the circular economy of the zero-waste lifestyle movement has influenced 0Stella’s songwriting style, creating protest lyrics like “bread and body over wine / breathing out your alibis / to ignore we’re running out of time” in the song “Wide Awake”. “Linen”, on the other hand, was inspired by the closure of the Magdalene Laundries (or Magdalene Asylums) in her native Ireland; a Roman Catholic institution, exclusively for Protestant “fallen women”, that ran from 18th to late 20th centuries; “That story broke my heart and has haunted me since I was a little girl”.
