Winnipeg Juno nominee Lianne Fournier’s first solo album, The Gift, is a compilation of 10 never-before-released original compositions. Lianne creates a unique fusion of folk, blues, jazz and funk. These songs have been written over a span of 20 years, stemming from her insights of the natural world to profound love songs. Often compared to Joni Mitchell, Fournier’s voice and creativity are evident on every track.
Lianne has teamed up with multi-award winning producer Don Benedictson and award-winning musicians, Murray Pulver, Daniel Roy, Gilles Fournier and Marc Arnould, (a.k.a. Ego Spank). This creative ensemble has produced an inspired combination of exceptional and distinctive sounds.
The melodies, harmonies, and arrangements are refreshingly sophisticated. Fournier’s meaningful lyrics reflect her philosophical point of view and passion for life. Her catchy songs, combined with the band’s infectious grooves, invoke clarity of thought and powerful imagery.
