We’ve got a new video from Six Nations rocker Shawnee Talbot of She King for her acoustic expression This Is Me.
She King, based out of Toronto, is mostly known for their hard-hitting, glam-rock style of music and performance along side the ever-classic rock ballad format. This time we get up close and personal with Shawnee Talbot, the bands lead singer, in this intimate and acoustic performance of her song This Is Me.
She King will be touring with Glass Tiger and Roxette this summer and you can check out the tour schedule at sheking.ca.
Bananas can get down with all types of mashing, whether it’s grapes or the mashing up of an old school youtube video and a new school dubstep song. Check out our latest Skrillex MASH-up / outtake.
