Performance Notes


A Port Theatre Discovery Series Presentation

Elise Boulanger takes to The Port Theatre as part of her It Started in the Garden Tour. You'll be captivated by her haunting avalanche of a voice and the band's cinematic dreamscapes.

Elise Boulanger is a sweet darkness wrapped in orchestral instrumentation. Hailing from the West Coast of Canada on Snuneymuxw territory, this Chamber-Folk-Pop artist completely captivates audiences with her haunting avalanche of a voice. Boulanger is a bilingual multi-instrumentalist and environmental advocate that creates cinematic dreamscapes. Imagine ethereal vocals soaring a top cello, violin, piano, drums and ukulele. Her lyrics are poetic, evocative and questioning. Her style is built upon her classical training and influences from both nature and artists such as Regina Spektor, Patrick Watson, Franz Schubert and Radiohead. Her sound is often described as being reminiscent of Kate Bush, Lana Del Rey, Kishi Bashi, Agnes Obel and CocoRosie.
