A taste of art and style
Music lovers can ravish in a true and honest work of art.
A tasty mix of southern groove, chicken pickin' licks, alt folk story telling, and organic beats. Uniquely written in both official Canadian languages, melodies are full of tension and passionate notes. The sounds create natural desires to stomp your feet and clap your hands and dynamics that send your spirit soaring high. The lyrics are poetic and dreamy, inspired from true love and heart breaks, sparkled in night life and consequences, and flamed in life and grim endings.
While industry specialists will notice Etoile Noire is part of the pulse, and fits current musical trends, worldwide audiences will have an experience designed to reach the purest and deepest musical core of their being.
