Sala, also known as Ariane Jean, is poised, gentle. A pristine surface covering the ripples of an intuitive, emotional nature. The former member of Juno Award-winning Chic Gamine launched her solo project at the height of the pandemic and returns to release her second album Surface.

A finalist at the renowned French language singing/songwriting competition, the Festival international de la chanson de Granby (Granby, QC) in the Interprète or performer/singer category, Jean/Sala is a former member of Award-winning vocal groups Madrigaïa and Chic Gamine. She has toured internationally with both groups and shared the stage with such acclaimed artists as JP Hoe, Begonia,Slow Leaves and Daniel Lavoie.

Her intimate, sometimes melancholy jazz, ambient and pop-infused songs tell of anger and forgetting, of shedding one’s skin and escaping the everyday to find refuge in imaginary worlds. Like snapshots of specific moments in time, Sala’s lyrics lean toward the symbolic rather than the literal. She creates by taking in sensations and moods and translating them into images, layering lush vocals on which her airy soprano can soar. Her voice embodies all the agility, soul and refinement she possesses. She’s all about soft tones and subtle nuances. The result is moody, atmospheric music that evokes the introspection of foggy mornings and rainy afternoons. Sala’s first single Comme l’oiseau was released on May 15th 2020. Her second single Sala’s eponymous EP was released in October 2020. Her second record, Surface, is due April 14 2023.
