"We had the absolute privilege of being joined on Sunday by Elise Boulanger Music who graced us not only with her incredible singing and songwriting gifts, but also with insights, questions and challenges into how we are holding ourselves and one another accountable for actions to mitigate the effects of climate change.

She sang "The Warming" [...] live for us and it was STUNNING (along with "It Started in the Garden"). If you get a chance to hear her live, please take it, her vibe and energy and talent are incredible."
- Weird Church, Cumberland, BC

"You were amazing as was your band. Thank you for such a great performance" 

- Christine Theuerkorn, The Port Theatre Bookings 

"Elise Boulanger delivers a unique, captivating and ethereal performance. She was professional, lovely to work with and we look forward to programming her for our theatre audience again!” - Heidi Cuff, Tidemark Theatre Marketing & Program Coordinator

"Elise Boulanger brings contributions to the music ecosystem beyond the bold, beautiful, and complex melodies she weaves. She and her band are incredibly kind, amiable and flexible, which are qualities we hold dear in rural locations where anything can happen. In addition her commitments to the natural environment, her work to build meaningful relationships and collaborations in the places she lives, or with the artists she finds herself in community with, make her a bright and refreshing person to encounter in the BC music tapestry."
- Elyssia Sasaki, Island Mountain Arts Executive Director
