Christopher Paul Stelling
Gospel / Ambient / Folk
"The musical storytelling of Christopher Paul Stelling embodies a long road full of lush folkloric, mythological and religious imagery." - WNYC
"There is a reverence in and of Christopher Paul Stelling that is immediately perceptible. It's striking and it's powerful. It's a draw. It's a magnetism that sucks you right into the landscape that he sees." - Sean Moeller, Daytrotter
"...organic, southern Gothic-meets-classic folk. Everything about his performing style and songs was inspiring, refreshing, and also blissfully familiar." - Beyond Race Magazine
"...it wasn't until Christopher Paul Stelling performed that the final emotional wall came crashing down. As though Stelling was reliving every emotional moment that went into the creation of each of his songs, he dug deeper than I've seen just about anyone, and everyone in the room was channeled into every second. It was heartbreaking. It was draining. It was revitalizing. It was genuine." - New York Press
"To watch Stelling play is akin to watching a master work...The furious guitar lines flow effortlessly as tales are woven over them." - The Muse In Music
[San James is Marilyse Senécal's solo project]
As a daughter of a musician, Marilyse spent a lot of time behind the scenes from a young age. While other kids were busy playing hide-and-seek, she would listen to all the records stored in her basement and sing along, searching for the right harmonies for hours on end. After spending a part of her adolescence singing for others, she eventually decided to move on… but not for long.
When she moved to Montreal, she taught herself how to play the piano and began writing songs. Above all, she started to sing again, and only then did she remember how good it felt.
