NAC Presents/CNA Présente: Her Harbour
Her Harbour is the moniker of Montreal born, Ottawa based singer-songwriter Gabrielle Giguère. Employing autoharp and piano as her primary instruments of accompaniment, Giguère crafts deeply personal songs driven by her evocative voice and use of silence and rhythmic space.
Her Harbour’s sophomore effort Go Gently into the Night, is a collection of eight dream folk songs set in the Canadian landscape and focuses on how life and mortality occupy the seasons.
“I wrote the songs at a time where I felt haunted by death. This album has been my attempt at making peace with it as a character of growing importance in my life.”
“There's something like hope pulling the words from her body, the melody from her bones. It's a beautiful meditation on loss and love.” — Andrea Warner, CBC Music
