Live Interview and Performance by Musician Gabrielle Papillon
Last Friday Gabrielle Papillon did a live interview and performance at Club Social in Mile End as part of CKUT radio's funding drive. While early morning patrons packed the café Gabrielle did an interview and performed two songs off her new album, Little Bug. Here's the interview where she talks about being a VIA Rail musician, her east coast tour, and performances and the writing-recording-touring cycle and a performance of her songs "Go Into the Night" and "Little Bug".
Fresh from the Halifax Pop Explosion and the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals, the singer/songwriter is on what seems to be a fiercely patriotic mission - to traverse Canada as many times as possible, by train by plane or by automobile, playing shows for lovers of her intimate style of folk.
Her latest album, Little Bug, moves from jazz-inflected whispers to shimmering brush strokes of pop and off-kilter lullabies. The line "Wait til' the lifeline pulls you in to me," from the beautifully hypnotic, "Go Into the night" summarizes the draw that her Montreal fans feel to her.
