Carly Rae Jepsen: Dedicated Tour
After Carly Rae Jepsen released her critically acclaimed album E·MO·TION in 2015, it became “a modern touchstone for a new crop of pop-leaning artists and legacy acts,” as NPR noted, adding that “the blast radius of E•MO•TION is expansive.” The album also inspired an abundance of memes — extending the cultural cachet that Jepsen earned from the ubiquity of her Grammy-nominated blockbuster hit “Call Me Maybe” (from her U.S debut album Kiss), which not only climbed to No. 1 on the iTunes Singles charts in over 47 countries, sold over 20 million singles worldwide, and was certified Diamond in the U.S., but was referenced by everyone from former secretary-of-state Colin Powell to Cookie Monster.
Born and raised in Toronto, Ralph (Raffa Weyman) personifies real glamour, dancing in the intersection between the contemporary vision of artists like Solange and Kali Uchis, and the allure of yesteryear that iconized David Bowie, Cher, Prince and Stevie Nicks. Ralph’s music is no different; it’s catchy but cool, sexy but smart, edgy but evocative. With an emphasis on lyrics and storytelling, pulling from her personal life experiences, Ralph’s songs are special because they are honest and relatable. With little more than talent and a vision, she has built an incredible following in the USA, Canada and Europe. In just over a year she has picked up over 25 millions streams on Spotify, rightly gaining her a place on Spotify’s ‘Ones To Watch’ list and her own billboard in Toronto’s Dundas Square. With features on Noisey, Fashion Magazine, Fader, Nylon, Wonderland, Billboard, she has secured her spot not only as a musical talent but a style purveyor to boot. As if this wasn’t enough, Ralph’s consistency and inspiration through photography and video leaves little to be desired. The videos for ‘Cold To the Touch’, ‘Tease’ and ‘September Fades’ move past the classic “music video” into short films, if not just for their unique style but for their ambition, confidence and tone. With her debut full length album on the way, audiences are excited to see what Ralph has up her sleeves for the next year.
