Biography

Canadian independent artist, produced by Grammy (Taj Mahal) & Juno award-winning producer Steve Bigas of Porcelain Records. "Cependant", is songwriter Rachel Narula and her band of exceptional musicians. Her captivating bilingual songs reflect themes reminiscent of and influenced by French literature, spun into catchy melodies and universal themes. "Cependant" delivers a distinct voice, making the listening experience a refreshing combination of pop rock infused sensibility and subtle rebellion.

The first single titled "Chère Jalousie" is receiving air play on 20 broadcast radio stations in the Province of Quebec, Canada and the video for the single has received 80,000 views on YouTube in the first 10 weeks. "Cependant" has inked a worldwide distribution deal and the video for "Chère Jalousie" will be sent to MusiMax & Musique Plus video channels in conjunction with the February 2013 street date for the release.

The "Cependant" debut release titled "Homme Invisible" is driven by Rachel's Anglophone/Francophone upbringing, that influences the lyrical messages in a unique blend of both languages in an Acadianesque style similar to the regional dialect called "Chiac". The current dual language trend with French and English songs is apparent with artists, such as: "Garou", "Arcade Fire", "Lady Gaga", "Sean Kingston & Simple Plan" and the classic song called "Lady Marmalade" which was a number-one hit song,reaching the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 charts twice: in 1975 and then 26 years later in 2001 with its instantly recognizable French lyrical line.

"Cependant" is performing at venues across Ontario and applying for showcase opportunities in Canada and France at music industry conferences that include Contact Ontario & the Canadian Organization of Campus Activities to expand their presence in the musical marketplace.

Lyrics

This 9 to 5

Written By: Cependant

Won’t you quit telling me things that I already know
I wasn’t born yesterday
Le monde tourne mes larmes coulent
Il y a plus rien à voir
Tu me manques tellement

This 9 to 5 is killing me
Plea for relief
This 9 to 5 is killing me
My dreams feel so far
This 9 to 5 is killing me
Tell me where you are

Won’t you quit saying those things like I don’t give a damn
I’m not perfect
Le temps passe, les gens courent
Je n'ai rien que toi
Tu me manques tellement

My world is spinning
You’re trying to catch up
Stop running, I’ll take it
Don’t stop me
I’m fighting

Won’t you quit showing me things that I’ve already seen,
There’s got to be more than this

Chère Jalousie

Written By: Cependant

Chère Jalousie
Mes larmes coulent
Comme les fleuves d’Andalousie
Chère Jalousie
Maladive, je saigne du Coeur
Oh Mélancolie

This is a new beginning, you can leave it all behind
This is the start of a new sensation
Passion, Fantasy

Chère Jalousie
Mes larmes coulent
Comme les fleuves d’Andalousie
Chère Jalousie
Arête de me suivre partout
C’est de ta faute qu’il est parti, catastrophy

You can move on from this pain if you try
You can move on from this pain if you try
You can go on with your life if you try
You will find out for yourself if you try

Chère Jalousie
Si tu pars
Je serai content sans toi

Chère Jalousie
T’est partie et je suis content sans toi
