Singer-songwriter Jean Clerel’s arresting vocals captivated Stephen Colbert's audiences last October before he quickly followed it up with two November singles: “My Anthem" and "Talking About Love.” There’s more to come from the Montreal artist, including a five-song EP in the works set for release on AWAL and more online performances. He’s well-suited to them: it’s not every act that can send emotion and intimacy through a screen, but so far, he’s excelling under current constraints. Check out Clerel at the Wavelength Winter Festival on Feb 13. —Erik Leijon
