Emaline Delapaix).

Emaline Delapaix Emaline Delapaix is an Aussie singer songwriter who lives in a cabin on an island in Canada surrounded by mountains and a giant lake with her big orange cat Reece. She spends a lot of time writing odd folk pop for piano, acoustic guitar and harp and sometimes whatever else she has lying about the place. Some say she sounds a little like Kate Bush or Tori Amos, but she also loves a lot of Scandinavian music: music that invokes the weather like storms and warm sunsets.

A live performance with Emaline Delapaix is a lot of fun, lots of laughter, unusual instrumentation, intricate rhythms with clever and achingly beautiful arrangements held together by exquisite vocals and harmonies.

Her new record ‘Peculiar Places’ will be out soon, followed by lots of lovely shows in North America, Europe and the UK.

She will be accompanied by Teresa (guitar & bass) and Nihan (cello) - forming the Emaline Delapaix Trio.


Emil Brynge (Maple Mountain), from Sweden has been compared to a modern Nick Drake with his haunting resonant music.
