Hailing from Montreal, Krief is a singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer that has spent over a decade writing, recording and performing with his former band, the multi-award winning pop-noir band, The Dears.
Krief's "solo" career has evolved from side-project band (Black Diamond Bay) to more of a one-man effort with a succession of guests to a truly solo endeavour — Krief has just put the finishing touches on his latest album Dovetale, on which he played all the instruments. Recorded and mixed between Krief’s home studio and Mixart in Montreal, the album echoes dream pop and shoegaze as well as the classic pop, rock and folk that have always been Krief's songwriting foundation. The songwriting and sonic finesse of the Beatles, in particular, remain touchstones for Krief. The debut single Daydream Lover, a triumphant union of contemporary pop and rock sounds, is set for release on November 16th.
