Ariane Mahrÿke Lemire
The exploratory and adventurous music of Franco-Albertan Ariane Mahrÿke Lemire is an organized chaos. Her vivid lyrics, and the melodies that carry them, create folk-poetry with notes of rock, beatnik and at times a little country. Through an authentic and natural stage presence, she invites audiences to journey between laughter and sighs, with her light anecdotes and intimate avowals.
Allan Hurd
Antennes déployées au diapason de la Terre, des arbres, des lacs et des rivières, des routes et des chemins de fer ainsi que des humains qui y habitent, Allan Hurd s’émerveille depuis toujours devant l’univers mystique des chants & sons ; autant pour les tensions qu’ils sont capables de nous provoquer, que pour l’apaisement qu’ils savent nous induire.
Geek assumé, il fabrique et/ou modifie la plupart de ce qui l’entoure en studio ou sur scène, que ce soit sa quinquagénaire Harmony Rocket 1962 qu’il a entièrement restaurée, ou la valise qui lui sert de kick drum. Parfaitement bilingue et doté depuis toujours d’un don pour conter des histoires, sonorisateur, multi-instrumentiste et inventeur d’instruments (parfois utiles), Allan propose un son unique, riche et envoûtant. Ses compositions se démarquent par leurs atmosphères planantes, assymétriquement structurées et proposent des arrangements denses et audacieux.
