Halifax-based singer-songwriter Gabrielle Papillon is one of Canada's best kept secrets. Though rooted in folk strumming and gentle vocal phrasings, her sixth album, Keep the Fire, sees Papillon embracing her pop leanings. Songs pulse with strings, synths, and evocative percussion resulting in an exceptionally well-crafted album of emotional storytelling.
