"New Music Canada Track of the Day for April 23, 2008: Court Lajoie "I Forgot There Is Sun Outside""

Ideally, when an artist writes a song, they want everyone to hear it. I mean literally everyone. Court Lajoie, who has been writing and recording songs since she was sixteen, is taking that to the next level. She has released her latest album online with a "pay what you feel" method of costing.

Originally, this song wasn't cleared for podcasting, but I emailed Court and asked if I could. She not only responded positively, but added more songs to her NMC page for us to hear! Having grown up in Sarnia, Ontario, she now lives almost an entire universe away on Hornby Island in B.C.

This song is for the ambivalent, passive couch potato in all of us. - Craig Norris, CBC

2006 :: "Falling" a full-length album of love-oriented songs, produced by Lajoie and released independently on Perfume Organ Records.

2008:: "Mindshift", full-length album produced by Adam Miner. Released online, pay-what-you-feel.

2009:: "Flourish", new album of Music-Nature-Spirit songs to be released midsummer 2009.



Cora Lajoie is a songstress and gardener inspired to explore the place where music, nature, and spirit unite. Born and raised by Canada’s chemical valley, she has since been on a journey of connecting the dots, connecting with the life force we’ve forgotten, connecting with community, and connecting with our responsibility to Mother Earth. Her path has taken her across Canada and Europe, and now she's planting her roots in Southern Ontario.

She plays her “conscious folk songs to soothe and inspire your heart” in parks by day, and intimate cafes by night. Her recent, independently released album called Mindshift is available to download pay-what-you-feel on her website,

Cora spent the Spring months of 2009 recording a new album called "Flourish", with songs inspired by flowers, diamonds, unconditional love, darkness, fire, seeds, and dreams... Add her to Facebook or email her to be connected to the news about this album, to be released midsummer 2009.
