Hailing from Northern Ontario, Faye Blais resonates the sweetest melodies coupled with raw acoustics that swiftly turns into the soundtrack to your life. With a stage presence that is equally delectable, Blais is a force to be reckoned with. This indie-folk princess will certainly win you over with her quick wit, spontaneity, and subtle ability to stroke the warmest pieces of your soul.
Originally inspired by the campfire tunes o...f her youth, this globe-trotting songstress has spent the last four years wooing crowds overseas. After releasing her first full-length album “First Tooth” in 2005, Blais journeyed over to Taiwan with her guitar in tow to serenade distant audiences as the lead of Faye and the Slacks. She then moved down under to finish recording her second album “Two Pieces” with pianist/producer Brad Viterale. This multifaceted and heartfelt new collection of songs released in 2008 brought this wayfarer far and wide with recent tours in Australia, New Zealand, back to Taiwan, the US and all across Canada. Detailed as “continuing the thread started by Joni, picked up by Ani and fashioned by Feist” (FasterLouder, Australia), Faye Blais will quickly become a name you’ll never forget.
Faye has been nominated for four upcoming NOMFA Awards, including “Best Album”. Her track “Something’s Changed” was also chosen as CBC Radio 3’s New Music Canada - Track of the Day in January, 2010. Faye is releasing a new album/DVD, “Here in the Shade - A Night at Sing Sing”, filmed and recorded in Australia, this May. She is currently based in Toronto.
