Album Notes
Genevieve is a Vancouver Island, Canada, based singer-songwriter, crafting tales of love, loss and rural living in between raising her three sons, harvesting veggies from the garden and hauling firewood to fuel her earthen home. Her music is rooted in folk and old-time country but incorporates bluegrass rhythms, Americana and pop. Her songs turn effortlessly from insightful love ballads to rollicking political hootenannies. As a trained actress, dancer and long-time member of the multi-award-winning Balkan Babes, she is an accomplished singer and performer, bringing a lively stage presence and charisma to the stage.
Genevieve’s song “Down Down Down” won the 2017 BC Musicians Songwriters Contest and was a finalist in the 2017 International Acoustic Music Awards. Genevieve’s albums “Updraft”(2014) and “Fine Line”(2016) both garnered Producer of the Year Awards at the Vancouver Island Music Awards, as well as multiple nominations. She plays regularly with her band Genevieve and the Wild Sundays, having toured Vancouver Island, BC and most recently Ireland. Most recently she has joined forces with singer-songwriter Jack Connolly to create the folk power duo “Heartwood”. She has played numerous festivals including Rifflandia, Islands Folk festival, Coombs Bluegrass Festival, and Artswells and has been played on CBC, CFUV, CHLY as well as Mid West Radio and Balcony TV in Ireland. Her third album studio “Heart is a Tower” is out March 1, 2019.

An “unexpected pleasure of this album is Genevieve’s flair for writing lyrics which are both perceptive and laced with a dry wit… and her well-observed, incisive social commentary” (Folk Radio UK).

“Genevieve is a talented artist who brings a genuine freshness to the roots and folk and bluegrass music she creates. She writes great songs, engages audiences with ease, and is the kind of community-minded artist and human being that we could frankly, use a lot more of.” (Kelly Nakasuka, AD IFF)

“Genevieve’s voice is at once reedy, full, playful, caressing and honest, simple and complex and tells a story that draws one in. It is impossible when listening to this album (Updraft) to not be moved in some way across a broad spectrum of emotions.” (Joe Chauncy, Boxwood)
