Veteran MuchMusic VeeJay Michael Williams Presents Sunday Night is fast becoming an established listening room featuring some of Ontario’s best musical offerings in a unique environment at Taste of Columbia El Salon in Oakville, Ontario.

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, two legendary artists will come together for a two hour concert One Night – Two Hearts featuring Lisa Hartt and Don Graham.

Lisa Hartt began her career in Montreal, Quebec at the age of 15 when she was already working as a backing singer for Gino Vanelli. In the 1970’s, she formed the Lisa Hartt Band, who had a charting song with ‘Old Time Movie’ from her successful Starwatcher album, which lead to major touring and appearances. Lisa continues to pursue her songwriting and performing and will be offering the best of her love and life songs with this unique appearance with fellow artist Don Graham.

“I am so grateful and humbled to be able to share my music and the songs of other iconic Canadians this coming Valentine's with my friend and fellow Montrealer Don Graham at Michael Williams presents at the Taste of Columbia in Oakville on February 12. It is a wonderful venue for singer songwriters. Michael is so knowledgeable about Canadian music and as our theme is : One Night-Two Hearts. I am looking forward to sharing songs of love inspired and love lost and love to come. Lisa HarttLisa HarttThere will be songs of a cautionary tale and songs that will inspire you to action, to sing to dance to stand and be counted. My music is coming back into the forefront of my life and I once again feel that music is a healing force for good in our world so the writing is more and more a more mature look at the day to day lives we lead where I can find such beauty and stunning tales in people's lives because it is after all people and love which make the world go round. Using folk, anthems, jazz fusion, reggae, gospel, R & B all in the pot of a Montreal upbringing I so look forward to playing and singing for a long, long time to come. Look for a recording, the first after many years, very soon in 2017 working with Don, Sandy and EMG.”

Don Graham , also formerly from Montreal, Quebec, had a successful career as the lead singer and front man for Graham County. With an international release on both the Gamma and Kapp label, Graham toured the Canadian circuit while pursuing his true passion - songwriting. Donhas continued to hone his craft as a songwriter with other artists recording his tunes. Don Graham loves to perform and entertain and is looking forward to his appearance with Lisa Hartt to offer his share of love songs and stories.

I think this is my fourth or fifth time playing that room and it’s one of my favourites. I always look forward to playing there and the atmosphere is unique. It’s a listening room, no booze, there’s coffee if you want it and a nice quiet room to play with no chatter or noise. No clinking of glasses or people shouting drink ordersm it’s similar to the coffee houses of the old days. Perfect for singer/songwriters. It’s one thing to write and play your songs in your living room but Taste provides a chance to take my “kids” out and show them off. And I have a handful of new tunes for that night. Plus I get to share a stage with two legends. Lisa Hartt, one of the finest singers to ever come out of Canada and the iconic MuchMusic VJ Michael Williams who runs the venue and MCs the night. And it’s Valentine’s Day a couple of days later so we get to celebrate love. I hope to see some old friends out there and make some new ones. “
