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 as “definitely one to watch” by the Times Colonist, Boulanger is influenced by nature and is sonically reminiscent of Kate Bush.
‘The Blooming,’ EP (2020) 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. It contrasts the jubilant, “Cigarettes et rosé” (2020) which launched onto CBC radio.
Performing for over 15 years, Boulanger is at home on any stage including the JUNO celebrations (2018) and many notable festivals and theatres in BC including Woodstove and Arts Wells.
