Mesparrow : one girl band with a loop choir, a human trumpet and a piano

Mesparrow est Marion Gaume. Une jeune femme originaire de Tours, qui s’est trouvé un nom d’artiste, ou plutôt de plume («sparrow » = « moineau »), idéal pour une chanteuse prête à s’envoler. Au départ, elle se faisait appeler Miss Sparrow, Mademoiselle Moineau. Mais Marion n’est pas la môme Piaf (même si, petite, elle se rêvait parfois en chanteuse de rues). Et elle n’aimait pas les trois « s » dans Miss Sparrow. Du coup, elle en a enlevé deux, mais elle a gardé les ailes, la Tourangelle. Mesparrow, « moi Moineau ». Dans Mesparrow, il y a aussi « arrow », la flèche. Suivez-là du regard, et surtout des oreilles : elle sort son premier album, elle est sur le point d’atteindre la cible, en plein dans le mille, après une trajectoire en boucles…

Emilie & Ogden is not your typical duet but rather an encounter between a singer and a harp. Emilie grew up in a small town outside Montreal and moved to the city to study classical music. There she quickly fell in love with the harp after discovering Joanna Newsom. Emilie practiced her new instrument in the TEA band, a folk project she started with two friends in 2010. Her love of the instrument combined with a need for self-expression gave birth to Emilie & Ogden in November 2012. Her particular voice has often been described as pure and soft, resonating in perfect harmony with the harp. On her debut EP, Emilie collaborated with young producer Jesse Mac Cormack (MAK), also performing in her band, bringing a soft electronic touch to her traditional folk sound. Live, her sound is completed by Samuel Béland on synthesizers and Francis Ledoux on the drums. Emilie & Ogden could be described as "nouveau folk", drawing inspiration from other female artists such as Feist and St-Vincent.

The universe of Montrealers Jonathan Peters and David Lagacé is a profound one, thick and aspiring, where day and night coexist. A musical world made of ethereal vocal harmonies and rich instrumentation, where melodies speak and words sing. Impulsive, pure and authentic.

A work of art that confirms a sincere endeavor, tempestuous and inhabited by a folk that burns to the core. We attach ourselves to a piece, and then to the whole of it. To the autumnal and night inspired "Underneath Your Skin" in the album's opening, that seemingly whispers in your ear; to the flight of "The Japanees One" and "Elephants" or even the emancipating orchestrations of "Ruins Ruins", "Folklore" and "Ancestor’s Shadow".

Ultimately, Shenanigans reveals itself as a complete and powerful undertaking, like rarely heard before.
