L’autrice-compositrice-interprète Métis Willows sera de retour avec un nouvel EP à l’automne 2020.  

 

Manitobaine d’origine et Montréalaise d’adoption, Geneviève Toupin alias Willows donnera ainsi suite à son album du même nom sorti en 2014 et chaudement reçu par la critique.


Depuis la sortie de son premier album en 2009, Geneviève apporte un vent de fraîcheur musicale qui a fait voyager ses chansons au Canada, aux États-Unis et en Europe, remportant plusieurs prix, dont le Western Canadian Music Award pour l’album francophone de l'année.

Métis singer-songwriter Willows follows up her 2014 critically acclaimed self-titled album with a Two Wolves, the first single from her new EP, to be released in the fall of 2020.

 

In 2014, Geneviève Toupin presented her new project and alter-ego Willows, blending her Métis roots and her Franco-Manitoban heritage.  The collection of intimate songs go from haunting harmonies to catchy melodies, all the while invoking the prairie wind with her warm vocals.  Willows was met with glowing reviews and what followed was a very busy few years of cross-Canada touring, a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination and a Trille Or for Best Album from Western Canada,.  Named after the California coastal city and the Saskatchewan ghost-town which both share the same name, Willows is a sonic landscape of desert light and open skies.

 

Since the release of her award-winning debut album in 2009, Geneviève Toupin has been performing near and far, with a growing audience in Canada and Europe.

 

After winning numerous prizes for her self-titled French debut album, Toupin went on to release her first English language album in 2102.  The road to the release of her second album The Ocean Pictures Project reads like a traditional folk tale, a kind of tapestry woven together from various traditions and lands.

 

She also garnered attention for her Tournée des Cafés webseries.  The project was such a succes that she filmed new episodes for broadcast on TFO TV in 2013.
