Bio


Categorizing Jorane’s music is not an easy task. This talented artist is difficult to classify by genre because her music is truly original. Complemented by her deep vibrating voice and by the soulful strings of her cello, the combination of voice and instrument create a sound that is unique. Jorane is thrilled by this dangerous liaison between voice and cello, and at the age of twenty-five, Jorane is a master of both. She illuminates the stage with her pixie-like look, captivating her audience with the contained strength of bow against stringed instrument while weaving a sonic & visual dreamscape for the listener and observer.

Her childhood memories are awakened with the sound of a piano. There was one in her family home in Quebec City and at the tender age of five, she played with determination. However, the task of taking instruction from a teacher frustrated Jorane and at the age of six, she quit her classes. Jorane discovered that she was able to reproduce whatever her father was listening to by ear. Being he was a Chopin enthusiast, she used to emulate the compositions to which she would sing the words of her own stories and create her own pieces. “When things were going right and even when they were going badly, it’s with the piano that I was able to let everything out. It comforted me and permitted me to express myself.”

It was in high school that Jorane tackled the guitar and quickly began winning award after award. Soon after she began to play the cello at the age of 19, and discovered that it was like learning a second language. The cello quickly became a form of a maternal language, a matrix in which she became entangled. Jorane wrote and recorded her first album, Vent Fou, literally Crazy Wind, at the age of twenty-two.

“I rehearsed like a wild person, up to eight hours a day. I like the left-handed choreography of the instrument. It’s like a dance.”

Today, Jorane reminisces that even before she began playing the cello for the first time, it was like meeting her own destiny.

At sixteen Jorane predicted “One day, I will sing with my cello”, to which someone answered “No, your voice is too high-pitched and the sound of a cello too severe”. Today Jorane remarks “I can’t remember if it was a dream or just a memory.” Either way, the two together have proved to be a potent combination.

Regarding her most recent album entitled “The You And The Now” Jorane has noted: “This album gives me a very large range. I will never make music based on what has previously worked but based on what I feel inside. Music is there for those who need it, and I need it. This album reflects that.”

Jorane has garnered an astonishing twelve nominations at ADISQ (“Songwriter of the Year” and “Artist Most Recognized Outside of Quebec”) and two Juno nominations. Jorane has also toured extensively internationally to support the release of her albums in foreign territories.
