First Play Live: Emily Haines, Choir of the Mind

Ron Skinner

Emily Haines' latest solo effort, Choir of the Mind, is an intimate affair. So if you are looking to spend some quality time with it, then look no further — this week's First Play Live session is about as intimate as any we've ever recorded.

Haines didn't want to come to the CBC and perform her new songs in a concert setting. She wanted something deeper and more meaningful; something closer to the music and her experience creating it. We were more than happy to oblige.

What Haines delivered is closer to a one-woman play than to a rock concert. Performed in front of an audience of about 100 fans at the Crow's Theatre in Toronto, Haines gave a special performance of songs from Choir of the Mind. Watch it below.
