And yet another talented singer-songwriter from Québec! Here’s Geneviève Racette with “Bricolage,” a track from her soon to be released eponymous debut EP.
Given that this EP was financed via crowd-funding, “Bricolage” is perhaps an apt title, although there’s nothing DIY about this sympathetically produced, up-lifting and up-tempo folk-tinged pop-song. There’s a gorgeous melodic guitar intro before Geneviève silky-smooth vocals kick-in; the song’s arrangement ensures that the melody complements rather than over-powers the voice; and as befits someone who cut her musical teeth as a member of the all-girl a cappella group, Les Gourmandes, the soaring harmonies are absolutely note-perfect.
A graduate of the l’école Nationale de la chanson de Granby and a finalist at last year’s L’Etoile montant (the winner gets to appears at the prestigious FrancoFolies de Montréal festival), Geneviève describes her style as “Comfy folk-pop.”
