Lisa LeBlanc's first album was written in the heart of Rosaireville (her hometown village of 40 people in New Brunswick), in Granby during her studies at l'École nationale de la chanson and in Montreal, where she now lives. She has sold over 80 000 copies of the album (produced by Louis-Jean Cormier of Karkwa fame at Studio Piccolo) since its 2012 Canadian release via Bonsound. In 2013, Tôt ou Tard released the album in France. Lisa LeBlanc's irresistible charm is the result of her unique musical style that she describes as folk-trash. Her words and music combined make for a light-hearted and touching effect.

The Acadian, who composed her first songs five years ago, comes from a family of music lovers. Outstanding guitarist and a promising singer-songwriter, Lisa LeBlanc was the winner of the prestigious Festival international de la chanson de Granby's 2010 edition. This award gave her great visibility within the French speaking media. She has since performed at several international events such as FrancoFolies de Montréal, Festival d'été de Québec, FMEAT, SXSW, Francofolies de la Rochelle, Francofolies de Spa and the Fête Nationale on the Plaines d'Abraham in Quebec City. A true show-woman, Lisa LeBlanc has already played over 400 shows across Canada and Europe. With her always is her energy, her love for life, her charisma, her sincerity and, of course, her beautiful voice and her music. Her goal is pretty simple: to sing and perform as often as possible!
Skye Wallace
Skye Wallace is a highly trained vocalist working to compile all of the stark elements of the Canadian landscape into a sort of musical archive. Inspired by historical non-fiction and field recordings, particularly the esteemed National Parks Project, Skye's songs are made out of stories that are hidden in plain sight. The resulting sound is both experimental and orchestral.

Originally from Toronto, Skye is currently residing, performing, and writing in Vancouver. She has played cities coast to coast, including St. John's, Halifax, Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Edmonton, Calgary, Victoria, and Vancouver. Skye continues to cause a stir with tours and home shows.

Recently, a new album has been released, presenting a more orchestral, layered, and unique flavor. The release on March 23rd, 2013 took place in an alternative venue space in a downtown east side guitar factory and was filled to capacity with an energetic crowd. The album showcases 12 songs that form a cohesive collection, while each having their own individual sound. Produced by Cody Taylor of Fiend Recordings, it features Dominique Fricot, Jasper Sloan Yip, Bocephus King, and many more.

This Is How We Go will be toured across the country from the end of April to June. Sparked by the acceptance into VIARail's onboard entertainment program, Skye Wallace and violinist Devon Kroeger will embark on a tour with stops throughout Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland, performing with many guest artists in each new city.

As Skye's collaborative spirit grows, so does the depth of the music made. Working under the sentiment that music will come together in the way that it's meant to, Skye exudes a sense of fearlessness and passion that is rare nowadays.
