After performing with local Toronto bands such as Inna Powell and Hungry Lake, and as one half of the twin folk duo Shanti & Vale, Vale Abbott is exploring an experimental side of folk in her new project: Cold Tea.


   Her music is ethereal and draws on personal history, blending the storytelling of classic folk music and the dreamier perspective of more contemporary styles. Though reminiscent of Bon Iver and Sufjan Stevens, Cold Tea has a unique flare that stands alone.
