Les soeurs Boulay:
Winners of the Félix award for Folk Album of the Year at the 2016 ADISQ Gala for their album 4488, de l’Amour, Les soeurs Boulay, originally from New Richmond in the Gaspé region of Québec, are at the peak of their artistry. Well known for their intimate concerts, Stéphanie and Mélanie Boulay approach the stage as “a place of sharing where the fourth wall is shattered and everyone – including themselves – feels at home.”
“4488 de l’Amour is a show that doesn’t take itself seriously, that constantly undergoes wardrobe changes, and that completely assumes its madness and bipolarity. Waltzing between melancholic folk and bittersweet pop, the two girls are sometimes comical, sometimes whiny, mostly in love and maybe a little unhappy about it. They’ll make jokes (that may not be funny) and blunders. There will be tears and there will be fights, and it will be mellow and delicate, proud and smart.”
Winner of the 2006 Festival international de la chanson de Granby and the recipient of several ADISQ nominations, Alexandre Désilets returns with Windigo, an orchestral pop album that revisits twelve songs selected from the singer-songwriter’s previous three albums. A seasoned performer, “Désilets takes to the stage like few others have in the last decade, with sensitivity, agility and mastery.” Known as an artist “of the mind, the body and the heart”, his live show brings to the fore his tender and singular voice and enhances the experience with cinematic visuals created by François Richard, art direction by Ian Cameron and staging by Véronique Marcotte.
