Navigating between country, pop and folk music, Anique Granger forges songs filled with aerial poetry. Her voice hovers over us and gets under your skin. Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Anique Granger made her debuts with the French duo Polly-Esther, before starting a solo career in 2015 with a remarkable debut album, Aimer comme une émeute. The single “Inassouvie” will become an instant hit, broadcasted on francophone radio stations throughout the country. For this album, the singer will receive three “Trille Or” awards (Export Ouest, Meilleure auteure-compositrice, Meilleure interprète féminine).

The up-and-coming Acadian artist Pierre Guitard launched his first album, Tuer la bête jusqu’à Dimanche, in the fall of 2018. Along with his bandmates Jesse MacCormack (Emilie & Ogden, Melanie Boulay, Rosie Vallant) and Guillaume Chartrain (Daran, Chocolat, BV300, Shane Murphy), the singer-songwriter’s music is openly influenced by dreampop and shoegaze, producing a unique blend of eerie guitars and numerous sound effects.
Particularly inspired by loss, beginnings and ends, Pierre Guitard offers simple, catchy melodies with lyrics about his fears – like becoming an adult, love, and be loved. Shortly after coming back from a European tour earlier this year, he won a Trille d’Or award (Découverte Acadie) before touring throughout Canada this summer.

Red Moon Road makes a much bigger sound than one would expect from a trio. It’s an impressive, well-choreographed show incorporating impeccable three-part harmonies, a roots drum kit split between two band members, and an acoustic guitar franken-rigged to also be the bass. Simultaneously, a moustached man plays mandolin, lap steel, banjo and organ, while the unmistakable soulful voice of Sheena, one of Canada’s most talented singers soars above it all.
