In their bio, Chic Gamine is described as embodying the ‘60s girl-group vibe all grown up and living in a new century.
For me, Chic Gamine is one of my favourite bands to come out of this province - a group who took home a Juno in 2009 for Best Roots Album of the Year, nominated in the same category again in 2010, who performed a the Vancouver Olympic games, spent the following year aggressively touring the US and Canadian festivals and opening for Marc Broussard for six months on his coast to coast tour.
The album that we are hearing songs off today is called Closer and it was just released last month. It marks their first American release as they plot their American take-over. You have to tune in to hear the delectable harmonies and rhythms produced by Ariane Jean, Andrina Turenne, Annick Bremault, Montreal drummer Sacha Daoud and Alexa Dirks of Chic Gamine on Made in Manitoba, Saturday at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday at 10:30 a.m.!
