It wasn’t the first time Victoria-based musician Kaitlin Jasmine has been at the Mary Winspear Centre. In fact, she’s been there quite a few times.

“I love it. It’s one of my favourite places to play,” said the Parkland Secondary School grad in her dressing room prior to opening for Tyler Shaw on Sunday, Oct. 18.

She began playing the piano when she was just eight years old and got her first guitar when she was 13 and has been writing songs ever since.

Jasmine, 18, graduated last year and is now working on an EP, which she hopes to release in December. She said songs come to her by being inspired by where she lives.

“Being from the Island, it’s very nature inspired. I love the ocean so in most of my songs I write about the ocean. It’s different, it’s very interpretative.”

Sunday was Jasmine’s first time performing for a big name opening act.

“It’s so cool, I was so excited.”
