THE MARINER'S REMEDY
Elise Boulanger is a sweet darkness wrapped in orchestral instrumentation. Hailing from the West Coast of Canada, this Indie-Folk artist completely captivates audiences with her haunting avalanche of a voice. Boulanger is a bilingual environmental advocate that creates cinematic dreamscapes atop cello, violin, piano, drums and ukulele. Deemed by the Times Colonist as "definitely one to watch" and "a captivating performer whose sonic amalgam hints at chamber music and indie folk in equal parts," Boulanger is influenced by nature and is sonically reminiscent of Kate Bush.
‘The Blooming,’ EP (2022) is Boulanger’s newest release. It’s bursting with unforgettable melodies. Her music video, “It Started in the Garden”(2021), bestows a growing awareness about the importance of biodiversity and contrasts the jubilant, “Cigarettes et rosé” (2020) which launched her onto CBC radio. She continues to be played by national community/college radio, CBC Radio Canada and has made TV appearances on CKPG’s Today Show (2022).
Performing for over 15 years, Boulanger is at home on any stage and has toured Western Canada. Notable performances include opening for Carmanah (2022), the JUNO celebrations (2018) and many festivals and theatres in BC including Arts Wells (2022), Robson Valley (2022), Woodstove (2022), The Port Theatre (2021), and The Tidemark Theatre (2021). Beyond Canada, she has performed in Mexico (2022), France, Germany, the Republic of Georgia (2019) and Belize (2017).
