    CHANCES

    Fourth Stage

    A collage of sinewy electro-pop and global influences, CHANCES’ performances are revelatory. Singing in English, French and Ojibwe, vocalists Chloé Lacasse and Geveviève Toupin weave exaltant harmonies, as percussionist Vincent Carré hammers out driving rhythms that pay homage to ancient rhythms as much as contemporary club culture. Hailing from Montréal QC, CHANCES harnesses  our collective consciousness into multifaceted electronic pop that’s both jubilant and luxuriant.

    Whether drenched in crystalline synths or stripped bare, Munson’s songs tackle modern life and love with radical intimacy. His soaring, gritty tenor paints vivid pictures of hard promises and ecstatic joys: atmospheric narratives that unfold, Rorschach-like.

    Born in Sri Lanka, raised on Prince Edward Island and now residing in Ottawa, ON - Amanda Lowe Warnakulasuriya is a multi-lingual singer-songwriter that writes music that can be sweet, heartbreaking, and enchanting.

  18. Play

    Charles-Antoine Gosselin

    Fourth Stage

    Walking in Neil Young and Nick Drake’s footsteps, Charles-Antoine's songs aim to be like short films, a lucid and intimate look at human relationships. His universe is one of contrasts, where solitude meets the crowd and cities vanish into country landscapes.  In search of simplicity, his delicate and personal songs are pure and bare of any artifice.  Sensitive to the core, the artist rises up on stage, where his voice never falters from its goal.
