Gabrielle Papillon releases
The Tempest of Old on March 24
...debuts new single "Got You Well"
Gabrielle Papillon releases her highly anticipated album The Tempest of Old on March 24, 2015. Listen to lead single "Got You Well" HERE.
"One of the finest new songwriters in Canada."
- Tom Power, CBC Radio 2's Deep Roots.
Steeped in a swampy, gothic underpinning, The Tempest of Old is big, orchestral, and defiant. Setting the mood with a bold and haunting piece that channels the sepia-soaked, cinematic drive of the Last of the Mohicans soundtrack, "Got You Well" is a striking album opener. Embracing the grandiosity of tones and textures, Papillon continues the beautifully dramatic disposition on tracks such as "Come and Gone," "Brother, Throw Down," and "Kentucky in the Dark."
Recorded at Echo Lake in Halifax, NS with multiple award-winning producer Daniel Ledwell (Jenn Grant, In-Flight Safety), the album marks a growth from the simplicity and gentle quality of Papillon's previous work. On The Tempest of Old, her ear for compelling hooks and her lyrical craftmanship remain steadfast, blended this time with sonic landscapes that revel in visceral storytelling. The album masterfully captures Papillon's outstanding live performances, gleaming with her charm and personality.
Gabrielle Papillon heads to the UK in May to perform at The Great Escape, and will announce Canadian tour dates in the months to come.
