Tox RecordsRating 3 A little mystery never hurt anyone, and it certainly helps this Montreal trio. Multi-instrumentalist Dragosh Elie and vocalists Carrie Katz and Lydie Dubuisson strive for a dreamworld atmosphere, and sometimes get
there. But as is usually the case when one person assumes the burden of a band, there's a certain degree of soulfulness missing in Elie's sparse soundscapes. Despite some pretentious turns of phrase, the vocals make up the difference; Katz in particular elevates the material with a muted sensuality. The weirdest stuff works best - If You Were a Sailor is a prime piece of warped psychedelia;Clover Grass sounds like a spaghetti-western soundtrack by Portishead. - The Gazette: jordan zivitz

Feeling a bit camera shy


When you think of a pop song, Joe Jackson or Elvis Costello might not come to mind, but they put in just enough to be part of our pop culture. Carrie Katz has that same quality. She will find a good hook, but won't over use it, she'll write a captivating chorus, by the end of the song you want to hear it again. The style is spare, but potent. This is somebody who crafts her songs, heart on her sleave stuff. The honesty is brutal but beautiful. She knows story telling in the song form of alt-rock-pop.

Carrie Katz has been playing music for the past 10 years in and around Montreal. She started to perform in University, then played in Europe, but when she came home to Montreal her music carreer really took hold. Fronting some of Montreal's most engaging bands, with this experience she went to LA, came back and started to work in Documentry film, while continuing to be part of the Montreal music scene. Involved in Montreal contempory chior, M'Ruta Mertsi, she started the Carrie Katz Band in 1997. Two years ago while she let her band go, she got picked up by a side project, Dragosh, that got signed and distributed by Universal Canada. Last year, she set out on her own, solo indie path and has been performing in Montreal clubs building a strong and loyal following.
