At 18 years old, Ontario, Canada guitarist Sierra Levesque has studied under Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal, shared the stage with Tracii Guns, and she recently dropped her debut single, Get Off My Stage

Her Instagram profile confidently describes her as “The new generation of rock ’n’ roll” and a “singer, songwriter, and more.” The “more” is intriguing – she’s clearly onto something, given that she’s racked up just over 34,000 followers on Instagram and nearly 25,000 on TikTok.
