Artist Biography:
Cowichan Valley based Genevieve Charbonneau is a prolific singer-songwriter whose homesteading experiences have provided her with ample material for songs. Her music is rooted in folk and old-time country and is at once timely and timeless. She incorporates bluegrass rhythms, traditional folk, Americana and pop into her style. As a theatre major, trained dancer and long-time member of the Balkan Babes , she is an experienced singer and performer, bringing a lively stage presence and energy to the stage. In January 2014 Genevieve went into the studio with Marc Atkinson on Hornby Island to record her first full length album "Updraft". The album garnered a "Producer of the Year" award at the Vancouver Island Music Awards, and a Country Recording of the Year nomination. She performs predominately with her band "Genevieve and the Wild Sundays", a quartet of women (Kelly Sherwin, Laura Carleton, Chandra Crowe) who add instrumentation and harmony to Genevieve's original songs.
