Apricity Live @ The Horseshoe Tavern
Apricity performing live at The Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto. Fuelled by the creative inspiration of female vocalists such as Garbage’s Shirley Mason, Alanis Morrissette, and Blondie’s Debbie Harry, Ontario’s Apricity dispenses equal amounts attitude and melody. Born in Scotland, Apricity immigrated to Canada as a child, but not before being bitten by the entertainment bug. In her formative years, the singer was a pageant show participant, auditioned for Britain’s icon tv show Top of the Pops, and also appeared on kids’ programs like Fun Factory before eventually comfortably settling into the world of musical theatre.
“It was being involved in different facets of entertainment that put me on the path to who I am today,” Apricity says. “Seeing people willing to invest their time and energy into me was inspirational. And now, I’m investing in myself. It’s been a tremendous amount of work but I’ve loved every minute of it.”
Now, on the cusp of what could be a big turning point in the singer’s life, she is nothing but grateful for the good fortune that has come her way so far.
“I feel so fortunate with respect to the way things have played out for me,” she says. “It’s been incredibly tough in some respects, but if it wasn’t for Covid, I might not have had the chance to work with Vic and Tom and this great team I’ve found myself with. So many people spend countless days and hours dreaming of what they want to do with their lives but then determine it’s not realistic. So for me, this whole experience just seems surreal. It is something I’ve been dreaming of for such a long time.”
