Hailed as “one of finest new songwriters in Canada,” (Tom Power, CBC) singer-songwriter Gabrielle Papillon sings stories real and imagined. Words, melancholy melodies, and lush harmonies are her currency.

In 2001 Papillon released her first album ‘Songs for a Rainy Day’ before taking an eight year hiatus from music to complete her BA and MA degrees in English Literature and History. Papillon released ‘The Wanderer’ in January 2010 and ‘The Currency of Poetry’ in October 2011, which hit a number of “Best Of” lists and landed in !Earshot’s Top 20 National Chart for Folk/Roots.

Her fourth album, ‘Little Bug’, was nominated for a 2013 ECMA for Folk Recording of the year, and three Music Nova Scotia Awards (SOCAN Songwriter of the Year, Folk Recording of the Year, and Female Artist Recording of the Year) after spending three months in the national Earshot charts. Little Bug was also named one of the Top 12 Albums of 2012 on CBC Radio’s Atlantic Airwaves and Papillon was a Mountain Stage Newsong Regional finalist in 2012 for the song ‘Go Into the Night.’ Her music has been featured on CBC’s Deep Roots, Vinyl Café, and Drive and her songs have also appeared in film and television in Canada, Australia, and the United States.

Produced by multiple award-winner Daniel Ledwell, Papillon’s fifth offering ‘The Tempest of Old’ is big and dark, orchestral and defiant. Rife with a purposeful swampy, gothic underpinning, her new album will be released in March of 2015.
