FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Ambitious Debut from Folky Minimalists

Champagne Weather is making its recorded debut throughout 2024 with the release of “ADSR”, an ambitious collection of four interconnected EPs. ADSR, short for “Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release,” describes the shape of a sound from its beginning (attack) to its end (release).

 

More broadly, ADSR is the shape of life itself, from the onset of birth to the release of death, and reminds us that every sound we hear is a microcosm of our own journey. Fans of Laurie Anderson, Jane Siberry and Philip Glass will appreciate Champagne Weather’s genre-defying mix of songwriting and sound sculpture. 

"A," the first of the four EPs is now available on all streaming platforms and live videos of "I Will Live in the City if it Kills Me" and "Teenage Summer" are here. Coming soon: a series of podcast episodes that take listeners behind the music. The band has an Eastern-Canadian tour slated for spring 2024, official industry showcases as well as late-July bookings in the UK.

Stage Plots

In a world that seems to spin faster every day, Champagne Weather makes time stand still. With a blend of songwriting and sound sculpture, the band artfully connects folk/roots to modern minimalism. Every song is a shimmering blanket of sound with flashes of Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Appalachian fiddle and Maritime folksong. Their music wraps around the audience, creating transformative musical moments.

Champagne Weather is new music from James Hill and Anne Janelle. Separately and together, Hill and Janelle have won a Canadian Folk Music Award and garnered both JUNO and ECMA nominations. They have performed widely at venues and festivals across Canada as well as internationally from New York to London to Tokyo. With Champagne Weather, the duo explores musical territory that reflects the full breadth of their musical lives and loves. The result is both healing and haunting: strange and beautiful music for strange and beautiful times.
