Travelling Love out October 30
Cross Canada Tour with Royal Wood
MONTREAL – Award-winning singer, composer and filmmaker Elisapie Isaac returns with her sophomore solo album Travelling Love. Due out October 30 on Pheromone Recordings / Avalanche this beautiful album captures Elisapie’s unique polar pop sound. Skipping across languages and genres she easily shifts from English to Inuktitut and from quiet acoustics to synthy electronics.
Describing the album title she explains:
“Love cannot be owned. It is something that is always moving, always flowing. That’s what I mean by ‘Travelling Love’.”
Travelling Love was produced by Karkwa’s Francois Lafontaine and Éloi Painchaud. Singer-songwriter Jim Corcoran co-wrote six tracks on the album, which also features Brad Barr (The Slip, Barr Brothers), Robbie Kuster (Patrick Watson) and Simon Angell (Patrick Watson). Elisapie’s touring band of multi-instrumentalists Manuel Gasse and Gabriel Gratton contribute throughout the album.
Adopted at birth by an Inuit family Elisapie was raised in Salluit, Nunavik, immersed in Inuk culture. For Elisapie, the North is not the end of the earth; rather, it is the centre. Following the success of her duo Taima, with guitarist and composer Alain Auger, which won the Juno Award for Aboriginal Recording of the Year in 2005, her 2009 debut solo album There Will Be Stars was an eloquent portrait of the past, present and future of her muse, the North, selling over 25,000 copies.
This October, Elisapie takes Travelling Love across Canada, opening for Royal Wood.
