Biography

The singer songwriter trio Les Hay Babies have finally launched their first EP titled Folio on July 31, 2012. The bilingual CD will include six of their original creation. Les Hay Babies craft a colorful folky music filled with sensibility and modernity.The young women, from little New Brunswick villages will carry you into their world with the warmth of their harmonies. They creating moving melodies with only a guitar, a banjo and a ukulele.Even though the band has been created less than a year ago, they already have a name for themselves. Les Hay Babies shared the stage with Motorleague, The Novaks, The Backyard Devils and Les Païens. We may remember them from the hotel elevator shows they were offering during the ECMAs in April 2012.

About their music, the girls had to say this for themselves: “We create what we want to hear as musicians. Why not start a project between friends with different musical genre and find its complementarities? We usually play roots music with an Indie twist… but not inclusively. To simply be inspired by the music within.”
