Elsiane was formed in the year 2000, when singer/musician/composer Elsieanne Caplette met drummer Stephane Sotto in his hometown of Montreal.
Their instant rapport belied musical and cultural backgrounds which couldn’t have been more different: Sotto, a gifted drummer, was self-taught and instinctive, where Caplette’s multi-instrumentalism and extraordinary keening voice emerged from a classical training in Lima, Peru. Yet for all their divergent experience, the pair’s shared sensibility was undeniable, with common influences passing through jazz, rock, electronic and world music, with an intriguing nod to the Trip Hop of Massive Attack, Portishead and Tricky—influences which, while pleasingly evident in the ethereal beauty of the music they continue to make together, would be constituted in an entirely unique way.
A debut album, the bewitching Hybrid, was released in 2007 to great acclaim abroad and in their homeland, where they toured with Delerium and Beast in the US and stormed festivals including the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, Osheaga and M for Montreal. A devoted live following began to form, drawn to the shadow-filled dreamscapes of songs like “Vaporous,” “Across the Stream” and “Final Escape”; to the arresting visuals and the hypnotic intensity of Elsieanne Caplette’s voice and stage presence.
