About Chic Gamine:
Good things come to those who wait. Nobody knows this better than Winnipeg and Montreal-based band Chic Gamine. A five-year gap between studio albums – one filled with bold adventuring and winding detours – culminates in the release of their third album, Light A Match. They emerge renewed and transformed by a path that brought into sharp focus exactly where they wanted to go.
Intensely creative and always evolving, Chic Gamine have built much since their start in 2007 – touring across Canada, the USA and parts of Europe, bringing their sound to venues everywhere, to festivals such as the Montreal Jazz Festival, Festival International de Louisiane, Winnipeg, Regina and Calgary’s respective Folk Festivals, France’s Transmusicales and SXSW amongst others. They’ve performed and toured opening for Mavis Staples, Smokey Robinson, Marc Broussard and Lake Street Dive. They’ve played before Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second of England and their music has been used on ABC’s The Fosters and General Hospital. They’ve been a favourite on A Prairie Home Companion, CBC and Espace Musique (who chose them as one of their musical Revelations of 2009/10), and were selected as a must-see act by NPR’s Stephen Thompson at SXSW in 2012. Their first self-titled album was released in 2008 and garnered them a 2009 Juno for best Roots Album. Their sophomore album, City City (2010), was nominated for a 2011 Juno in the same category. Then came an American re-release, Closer in 2012 – mixed and mastered anew by three of Rick Rubin’s Grammy Award-winning engineers – and in winter 2014, the Holiday-themed EP they pushed on a six-week, cross Canada run with Stuart Maclean’s Vinyl Cafe, Christmas Vol. 1.
