Art-pop songstress Hilary Grist will be the musical guest for CBC Radio’s On The Coast Friday, when the show visits her hometown of Maple Ridge.

Since the release of her most recent album, Imaginings, in 2010, Grist has been charming audiences across Canada and the world.

Highlights including Tokyo’s renowned Cotton Club in Japan, Busan International Rock Festival and Ulsan World Music Festival in Korea, Edge of the World Festival in Haida Gwaii, Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival, CBC Radio 2’s Canada Live and CBC Radio’s Toque Sessions.

Inspired by the mysterious and with a penchant for wide-eyed optimism, her soothing honey-soaked voice and intimate piano playing soar over driving indie pop and dreamy tinderbox folk; all with a twinkle in her eye and a stomp in her foot.

Grist is currently busy at work, crafting a lullaby album and fantasy picture book called Tomorrow is a Chance to Start Over, as well as her next full length album.
