Montreal, QC-based singer-songwriter, Geneviève Racette has released the first single, “Maybe” from her upcoming album, Satellite.
With her mesmerizing vocals as the star of the track, the exquisite guitar lines throughout are an undeniable compliment for the soothing ambiance. The song is about wanting to be someone’s sure bet, but only feeling like a ‘maybe’. It’s being so blinded by infatuation, that you can’t see that you’re being taken for granted. Produced by François-Pierre Lue, the song features Eleonore Pitre on guitar and Philippe Fleury on drums.
“I wrote this song in my friend’s kitchen with two of my favourite songwriters. We were all hanging out in Toronto, and we turned our afternoon girl talk into a song,” explained Geneviève.
The two songwriters being JUNO-nominated artist Barbra Lica, who has written cuts for such artists as jazz crooner Matt Dusk (Entertainment One/Universal), rising J-Pop singer Harumi (Sony Music Japan), and Taiwanese pop recording artist, Morrison Ma (Universal Music Group/X Entertainment), and Danielle Knibbe, who’s knack for penning insightful yet straightforward lyrics has already gained her recognition, earning her a spot at the Banff Centre for the Arts inaugural Singer-Songwriter Residency where she was given the nickname “The Lyric Doctor” due to her natural instinct for getting to the heart of a song.
Satellite, which is due out in 2022 is Geneviève’s third full-length release. A 9-song collection delivering honest stories of self-discovery and reflection through the cycle of love. The album, filled with intimate vocals, lush instruments, and expressive harmonies, evokes moments of love, heartbreak, healing, forgiveness and ultimately falling in love again.
