Change of course for Marylaine Racicot

Changement de cap pour Marylaine Racicot

After a few years working in a duet with the Colombian-Argentine Javier Munoz, Marylaine Racicot launches a solo. A first CD in hand, the singer-songwriter from Saint-Joachim-de-Shefford is ready to be in Quebec… and at the international level.

The one who wants to be known as Marylaine simply has long given in the jazz manouche. But his album Farewell Winter, he launched a ten-day, marks a change of style with his bill more folk. “This style-there really comes to seek my irish heritage and my passion for the folk music, the Appalachians,” says the young woman 34 years of age.

After his separation with his music partner and lover of the past few years, it has experienced some events that have inspired six of the nine tracks from the album — the other three are covers, she said. “Together, they form a collection of songs that are as much “goodbye” in the difficult moments of the past three years, ” she said.

Up in Poland

A great traveller, an author-composer-interpreter who has lived two years in Argentina — has had the chance to go in studio in Poland. There, she worked with “a sound engineer who records the greatest vocalists of the country,” thanks to a friend she had met at a camp vocal jazz in New York.

Therefore, it is not surprising to hear the Joachimienne say that if this first album was composed entirely in English, this is for ease of export. “But I’m not closed to the idea of singing in French, she defends herself. Also, for my next album, I’d like to have at least one song in French. “

Farewell Winter is available on all digital platforms, as well as physical copies at the coop of Saint-Joachim or via the website of Marylaine (
