“Ailleurs” brings you five deeply passionate, intriguing and relaxing melodies full of sorrow and joy, thought and reflection, derived from feelings created from being uprooted, longing for loved ones who are far away, and searching for a place that felt like home.
“Every Goodbye” was a studio improvisation where Mylle recalled the many goodbyes said to loved ones, while “Tell It to the Wind” (see above) is a delightful piece inspired by the beautiful and stunning nature found on British Columbia’s West Coast, Fournier’s new “home” of the past decade. All of her compositions were written with these thoughts, feelings, and emotions in mind while she recorded Ailleurs over the last year.
Ms. Fournier has held demonstrations and workshops for Long & McQuade and Rees Harps. She has recorded with many other local artists in and around Vancouver, including Marty Zylstra’s The Dragonfly and the Spider, ROYAL’s Heart of Shadows, and Cardiff musician SimonLyn’s newly released album bE ON uR ON.
Ailleurs is available on CD Baby.
