Elizabeth Shepherd burst onto the international scene in 2006 with the release of Start to Move. Since then, the four-time JUNO nominee and two-time Polaris-Prize nominee has been featured on BBC, J-Wave (Japan), WBGO (New York), NPR and Deutschland Radio.
Her much-awaited new project, MONtréal, is a bold and soulful 11-song ode to her hometown and its deep-seated jazz roots. After three years of interviewing strangers who all shared but one thing - being Montrealers - Elizabeth found herself with countless stories that make up a "people's history" of the city she loves so much, which she then wove into 11 original songs. Soulful, groovy, with a touch of electronica, MONtréal is a humanist musical odyssey, accompanied by a filmed journey through each of the places and people behind the songs.
