Born in Val d‘Or, Quebec and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Marie-Josée Houle celebrates her dual cultural roots through music. Singing and writing in both English and French, she brings the Townships to the Prairies and beyond. No polkas or foxtrots for this accordion diva; instead, she combines her classical, punk rock, and French cabaret sensibilities into one sultry stew of sound.

Her musical history is as varied as her hair colour. Classically trained on the accordion at age five, she chose other instruments as the medium to first deliver music to the masses. In 2000, she took up the electric bass and saxophone in order to form two very eclectic projects in Edmonton. Her reconnection with the accordion coincided with a move to Ottawa in 2003 and culminated in the world music collaboration whose success served as a springboard for her solo work.

Her solo debut, Our Lady of Broken Souls, was released in March 2007 to much critical acclaim, including a nomination for Best Folk Album of 2007 by the Ottawa Xpress. The album charted and received solid airplay on local college and community radio stations across the country. Two-thousand-and-seven saw her play the main stage of festivals in Canada, a few European dates, embark on her first successful cross-country tour and share a stage with other celebrated female artists for a CBC Radio 1 broadcast.

In 2008, Marie-Josée continued to journey across Canada and to Europe. On October 16 2008, Marie-Josée Houle released her sophomore CD Monsters (which she finished in Oslo, Norway) at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa moments after she was informed that she earned a nomination for Best Folk Album of 2008 by the Ottawa XPress. Monsters continues to chart across Canada and to receive stellar reviews nationally and internationally.

Two-thousand-and-nine promises to be another great year for Marie-Josée Houle, with multiple tours and festivals in Canada and in Europe - including the 10th Annual International Accordion Festival in Vienna - and the rumblings of a new CD. 

 

Tanyss Nixi —http://www.myspace.com/tanyssnixi 

http://www.tanyssnixiweb.com/ 

"Tanyss Nixi was raised by her Aunt and Uncle in a northern Alberta prairie town. Think of it as the Canadian Texas, if you like, except for the long cold winters (-45 degrees celcius is not uncommon). Combine this isolation with an unsettled childhood, a fierce independence, and an appreciation for beauty in all forms (including some of the darker aspects of human nature)- and you've got the recipe for this wonderful music..." Influences = Mazzy Star, Lisa Gerrard, Neko Case, Cocteau Twins, Nick Cave, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch, John Lennon.
