NATIONALLY RENOWNED FOLK-POP SINGER-SONGWRITER, GENEVIÈVE RACETTE, KICKS OFF THE RELEASE OF HER THIR
(For immediate release: Friday, May 7, 2021) Two years following her most successful album to date, Canadian Folk Music Award winner and Montreal-based singer-songwriter, Geneviève Racette, is ready to release beautiful brand-new music with Maybe, the first single off her forthcoming album, Satellite. Stream Maybe on your favourite platform now.
With her mesmerizing vocals as the star of the track, the exquisite guitar lines throughout are an undeniable compliment for the soothing ambiance. The song is about wanting to be someone’s sure bet, but only feeling like a ‘maybe’. It’s being so blinded by infatuation, that you can’t see that you’re being taken for granted. Produced by François-Pierre Lue, the song features Eleonore Pitre on guitar and Philippe Fleury on drums.
“I wrote this song in my friend’s kitchen with two of my favourite songwriters. We were all hanging out in Toronto, and we turned our afternoon girl talk into a song,” explained Geneviève.
The two songwriters being JUNO-nominated artist Barbra Lica, who has written cuts for such artists as jazz crooner Matt Dusk (Entertainment One/Universal), rising J-Pop singer Harumi (Sony Music Japan), and Taiwanese pop recording artist, Morrison Ma (Universal Music Group/X Entertainment), and Danielle Knibbe, who’s knack for penning insightful yet straightforward lyrics has already gained her recognition, earning her a spot at the Banff Centre for the Arts inaugural Singer-Songwriter Residency where she was given the nickname “The Lyric Doctor” due to her natural instinct for getting to the heart of a song.
Satellite, due out in 2022, is Geneviève's third full-length release. A 9-song collection delivering honest stories of self-discovery and reflection through the cycle of love. The album, filled with intimate vocals, lush instruments and expressive harmonies, evokes moments of love, heartbreak, healing, forgiveness and ultimately falling in love again.
With over 2 million streams on Spotify, Geneviève Racette has captivated listeners with her gentle, yet compelling, emotional resonance, and garnered impressive industry support for her folk-pop tracks ever since her first EP in 2014. Since, through her vulnerable lyricism and ethereal vocals, Geneviève has emerged as a rising star in both French and English-speaking Canadian music scenes.
Her latest album, No Water, No Flowers, brought forth an immense amount of growth for Geneviève, turning the corner from Quebec recognition to national praise, including a Canadian Folk Music award, performing on stage with City and Colour at Osheaga, rave reviews from media, music publications and blogs, and tracking on multiple radio stations right across Canada. In the last two years Racette has performed as the headliner in over one hundred concert venues across the country, including Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and the Maritimes.
As a woman in music, it is essential to Geneviève that she surrounds herself with like-minded females in the industry. She is proud that over half her team involved in the creation of Satellite are female musicians and members of the industry. Through fine-tuning her artistic vision and developing a profound network of professionals, Geneviève is ready to work on this record with a newfound creative state of mind, hoping to reach out of the Quebec market exporting her music across North America and beyond.
