Geneviève Bellemare

"Melancholy Fever" (CD)


A self-driven singer/songwriter, Geneviève Bellemare instills her music with moody soulfulness and an inventive sense of melody. For her debut album Melancholy Fever, the Vancouver-born, L.A.-based 23-year-old worked with producers Mitchell Froom (Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello), Tony Berg (Nickel Creek), Paul O Duffy (Amy Winehouse), and busbee (Ingrid Michaelson) to dream up a brightly arranged breed of pop, which, when paired with classic drum breaks, results in a stark and soulful sound that isn t easily categorized. Mining inspiration from singers with an off-kilter feel for harmony and tone her favorites include Astrud Gilberto, Cocteau Twins Elizabeth Fraser, and Yukimi Nagano Bellemare deepens that sound with a siren-like vocal presence that conveys every nuance of emotion.
