Experimental singer-songwriter Cameron Mesirow, artistically know as “Glasser," began her new tour on Oct. 10th at the Masonic Lodge in Los Angeles. Her new album "Interiors" revisits the emotional electronic sound and hauntingly beautiful vocals that permeated her last work, "Ring." Her new tour takes her to Canada and Europe as well as select cities in the US.
The dream-like quality of her music is profound. She can sing about something as simple and mundane as crossing the street and bring audiences to tears by harmonising her pitch with orchestral electronic melodies. Cameron’s inspiration to name her act “Glasser” came from a vision she had in a dream. The feeling she describes as “a figure hovering over water,” is translated in her harmonies and ethereal arrangements as well as the aesthetics of her show. Her theatrical performance was stylised by kaleidoscopic colors and rhythmically timed projections of light reflecting off of water. The images of opaque glass and mirrors timed to her unique melodies pull you directly into her surreal dimension.
Coming from a creative family of musicians and having Joni Mitchell as one of her idols, Glasser never imagined doing anything else besides having a rock n’ roll band. Jump into Glasser's universe by seeing her sing one of her new tracks “Shape."
