Show Review – Madeline Merlo, Wes Mack & One More Girl

By: Remington Fioraso 

Who: Wes Mack, Madeline Merlo, & One More Girl
Where: Langley Events Centre in Langley, BC
When: June 14, 2014

On June 14, 2014, 93.7 JRFM held a ‘JRBQ’ in support of “Basics For Babies” at the Langley Events Centre in Langley, BC. As part of the festivity of events, acoustic sets were performed by Wes Mack, Madeline Merlo, and One More Girl. The three artists have regular rotation on the radio station.

The first artist to hit the stage was Wes Mack. In addition to having acting creds (including Icicle in Smallville and Austin Mars in Heartland), the artist has been in the Canadian country music scene. The song I enjoyed hearing the most was entitled “Duet” performed with Carly of One More Girl. The chorus was stuck in my head for the rest of the day.

Maple Ridge’s Madeline Merlo can be recognized from her single “Sinking Like a Stone.”  She is set to release her new single and EP soon. At a prior event JRFM held, I had the opportunity to see Merlo play so I was ecstatic to be able to see her perform again.  She simply has a phenomenal voice and it is truly captured by acoustic performances.  My favourite song of the set, and one I was anticipating the most, was “Deleted.”

Finally, Maple Ridge’s One More Girl took the stage for the final performance of the day. One More Girl consists of sisters Britt and Carly McKillip.  Occupying the sisters during the set was their father, Tom McKillip.  I have consistently heard One More Girl on JRFM, can sing along to every song, but they are so much better live.  The song that I enjoyed the most was “Love Like Mine.”

Thank you to JRFM for another great line-up and event!
