Elder Sister Plum

Tanya Semple as Elder Sister Plum

Elder Sister Plum‘s tunes go down smooth like a good whiskey. WIth just her voice and an acoustic guitar or piano, Plum puts listeners in a trance. Your toes will be tapping and your head bopping as she gets going with one of her driving folk songs inspired by paddling the Yukon River. Your eyes will tear up during a gripping, melancholy but oh so sweet retelling of a past heartbreak. Your heart will be racing and your gut wrenching as you get lost in a world of cut-throat pirates, sirens and buried treasure.

Elder Sister Plum’s swashbuckling folk lullabies offer a treat for every listener.

She later recorded as a background vocalist for the blues rock effort by The Breaks called “Honeybees“As Elder Sister Plum, she spent a weekend in the studio recording 5 demos that would first be heard on Moon Melody April 8th of 2013, as “A Taste of Plum“.

Elder Sister Plum has released her debut full-length studio album entitled ‘People Like Us’. The album was a collaboration between Plum and The Sun Harmonic, independently recorded at The Townhouse Recording Facility & Sound Studio and released in July of 2013. As she built her nest back on the West Coast of Canada after a tour to the East, she spent a dedicated time in her bedroom with her computer, creating a new sound in the 4 track EP “Ghost Stories“, released in February of 2015 as a PWYC download. Tanya now performs routinely on Vancouver Island and other music venues nearby.
