Minuscule is the brainchild of ukulelist Laurel Minnes, harnessing the power of a 15-piece all-female choir and an eclectic backing band to create a powerful new form of feminist pop music. Making their debut performance with a sold out set at St. Catharines In the Soil Festival, Minuscule has continually clapped, stomped and meowed their way into winning over every audience they’ve met. Drawing comparisons to the weaving melodies of Imogen Heap and moving experience of Choir!Choir!Choir!, Minuscule’s unforgettable live performances are making choral music cool again.
The debut album Great, co-produced by Minnes and Joe Lapinski (Great Lake Swimmers, Woodshed Orchestra, DRFTR) was soft released November 2019. The 10 tracks encompass a genre-bending blend of intricate five-part vocal harmonies and emotionally stirring, tongue-in-cheek lyricism – and features title track Great, which secured Minnes’ recognition as Songwriter of the Year at the 2018 Niagara Music Awards.
