I'm proud to share this next recording from my "Clémence" sessions. Just imagine the fear of old age being suddenly eclipsed by two laughing ladies. A beautiful moment if you ask me.

I had to dig deep under the freezing cold for this one, but ended up finding a garden. Hold on: summer is on its way!

Full Day of Mélancolie

Sophie Day performs Full Day of Mélancolie

I simply could not get over the beauty of this song by Clémence DesRochers, so I wrote an arrangement for jazz and chamber ensemble. Clémence DesRochers is without a doubt one of Quebec's greatest chansonnière.
