Gospel / Ambient / Folk

There is a fearless quality to the music of Christopher Paul Stelling. A voice that sounds both old and young, an effortless yet intricate finger-picking guitar style and lyrics that are both dramatic, and intensely confessional. It’s a sound that channels the restless spirit of a young man who left home to travel the country, haunting and impassioned songs formed by endless nights alone on stage with a guitar, playing to packed houses, other times to nearly empty rooms. Stelling estimates that he’s played over four hundred shows in just the past three years. It places him within a longstanding tradition that serves to nurture ones character and art.

[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.
