(Wednesday, August 31 – Canada) Today, Canadian Folk Music Award Winner Geneviève Racette has released From This Moment On, a Shania Twain cover in celebration of her birthday.
The first record Racette bought as a kid was Shania Twain’s Come On Over, and by reading the lyrics in the CD booklet, From This Moment On was the first song she learned. Geneviève’s beautiful, warm vocals and graceful acoustic guitar put an alluring spin on this critically acclaimed track.
Adding to an ever-developing and highly-praised bilingual catalog, Geneviève Racette released her third studio album, Satellite, earlier this year. The release included a 9-song collection of folk-pop tracks delivering honest stories of self-discovery and reflection through the cycle of love. Filled with intimate vocals, lush instruments and expressive harmonies, the album evokes moments of love, heartbreak, healing, forgiveness and ultimately falling in love again. Satellite also featured the track Someone, an outstanding duet with City and Colour’s Dallas Green.
As a woman in music, it is essential to Geneviève that she surrounds herself with like-minded females in the industry. She is proud that over half her team involved in the creation of Satellite are female musicians and members of the industry. Geneviève co-produced Satellite with François-Pierre Lue (who also produced No Water, No Flowers) and collaborated on many songs with JUNO-nominated Barbra Lica, award-winning songwriter Danielle Knibbe and fellow Québécois singer-songwriter Éric Charland.
With over 2 million streams on Spotify, Canadian Folk Music Award winner Geneviève Racette has captivated listeners with her gentle, yet compelling, emotional resonance, and garnered impressive industry support for her folk-pop tracks ever since her first EP in 2014. Through her vulnerable lyricism and ethereal vocals, Geneviève has emerged as a rising star in both French and English-speaking Canadian music scenes and has headlined for hundreds of shows right across Canada and throughout the United States.
