Wildcard (week 8):
MBG – This Time

MBG is short for Music Box Girl, the artist name of Carolina โ€˜Leenaโ€™ Rodriguez from Ontario, Canada. A toy keyboard sparked her interest in music at the age of 15. It was the first instrument she mastered, learning songs by ear. She also self-taught herself other instruments such as the drums, guitar, and bass. Since her family couldnโ€™t afford music lessons โ€“ let alone the instruments themselves – she commuted to the local music store every day after school, where she practiced until closing time.

In 2021, after years of self-education, Leena is a skilled multi-instrumentalist who excels in the genres of jazz, r&b, blues and classic rock. She is part of a band project called the Common Chase, a four-piece where she mostly plays the bass and sings background vocals. But above all, sheโ€™s an up and coming solo artist using the MBG moniker. As a one-woman rock band, Leena writes, records, performs and produces her music in her home studio.

Following her 2019 debut EP Have A Alright Day, she put out a single in 2020. New track This Time is her first release of 2021. A great alt-rock track with an accessible melody, drenched in guitars.

This Time by MBG is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. As such, itโ€™ll feature prominently at the top of this blog for a whole week.
