Ria Mae at AREA 506

The festival's backdrop is the Waterfront Container Village, a hub of creativity where vendors, brands, and cultural groups come together to showcase the province's artisans, craftspeople, and musicians, giving a glimpse into their energy and ingenuity.

Ria Mae's performance was a standout moment, especially when she was joined on stage by her friend, Frank Kadillac, from Neon Dreams. She's been a personal favourite of mine for a while. Her style, with the orange cap and jean jacket, was a nod to our Canadian roots. Her album "Therapy," released in 2022, is a collection of six heartfelt anthems that blend honesty and storytelling in a way that instantly connects with me and I'm sure other listeners.
