Ariane Mahrÿke Lemire

from Edmonton, AB

Bilingual chanteuse and songwriter Ariane Mahrÿke Lemire is on a mission to break down les barrières. Her first release, Double Entendre, was an ambitious and inclusive project: one French, and one English, disc "living in harmony within a single package." Three albums later, Lemire is still the graceful human equivalent of that package, holding space for les deux langues to create art that starts from the heart. Her passion needs no translation: poetic lyrics dance between flashes of alt rock and folk. Lemire shares with us the intimate moments found in the lines of her palm and between the words of old letters, a study of light against dark and the harmony of duality. From her Edmonton home base Lemire's award-winning musical shadow has stretched from BC to New Brunswick: elle est incomparable.
