Montreal-based Inuk singer, film director, and activist Elisapie Isaac “synthesizes stories from her eventful life with hypnotic arrangements that channel ’70s rock, indigenous folk music and the low, moody rumble of barnstormers like Tom Waits and Morphine” (NPR). Singing in three languages, the genre-bending artist uses English to explore folk, French for more romantic writing, and Inuktitut to speak profoundly about Indigenous culture. Exclaim! calls her latest work, Ballad of The Runaway Girl, “a powerful record, and a rare album where both the music and narrative are equally stunning.” With Joe Grass (Patrick Watson) guitar/vocals, Joshua Toal (Plants & Animals) bass/guitar/keyboard, and Evan Tighe (Basia Bulat) drums.
