Basement Revue: Jennifer Castle

The Toronto musician performs a song from her acclaimed album Pink City

Jennifer Castle is a singer-songwriter based in Toronto, whose intricate and compelling folk music has brought her numerous accolades, including a spot on the shortlist for the Polaris Music Prize in 2015 for her album Pink City.

Castle performed the song “Sailing Away” from Pink City at the Basement Revue, and spoke briefly about the important cause—raising awareness about missing and murdered Indigenous women and raising money for No More Silence—that brought people together that night.

“I know that we’re never really gone, but it’s nice to help the families that have to live with it in their hearts,” she said. “I know that we’re never really gone. Despite what they tell you, we’re never really gone.”
