ÉTOILE NOIRE (SELF-TITLED)
Released November 2017
This album captures the communal efforts of artists Fabien Melanson and Justin Trudeau. They carried out a vision where two writers could combine their talents 50/50. Writing in their preferred styles of southern Folk/Country, the music and lyrics present a story. Inspired by events that were currently happening, or with those around them, each song tells a part of them. The subject being predominantly about love and loss, battles with alcohol and accompanying transcendence. It’s a work of truth, and acceptance.
The beauty of this bilingual French/English duo is it’s grassroots approach. Working with only guitars, stomp boxes, and harmonies, it is rich, dynamic, and closer to the earth and to the heart.
