About Raine Hamilton
Raine Hamilton writes resonant, acoustic chamber folk with an otherworldly edge, and a lyric presence that cuts deep. Prism-clear vocals and strings; A combination of vocal agility and power. She recently received a 2018 Canadian Folk Music Award for Emerging Artist of the Year.
Her new album, Night Sky, tips between the earthly and the otherworldly; it is anchored in relatable lived experience, while reaching into the space just beyond, thinning the veil between here and there, affording safe passage to the rough and beautiful places. Raine’s ethereal voice and lyrics are at the forefront of these powerful and relatable tunes, written both in English and in French. Alongside cello or double bass, and with Raine on violin or guitar, these songs have a moving string quartet feel with a cosmic reach.
Raine is also a charming and funny storyteller, pairing her vulnerable tunes with engaging story intros. Raine believes that music is for everyone, and that we all have something to share. An experienced educator, Raine offers workshops in songwriting and fiddle tune writing (EN/FR). Raine also offers concerts with American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, to help make live music and the community that comes with it accessible to the Deaf community.
Cello accompanist Natanielle Felicitas is an experienced freelance collaborator whose intuitive style resonates with a broad range of audiences and performers alike. Learning the cello while growing up in Edmonton, Nat draws from her classical training to accompany musicians from folk music to experimental noise projects. Currently collaborating and touring with Raine Hamilton, other adventures include: touring Canada & UK with JP Hoe, composing and performing for theatre productions, and growing a list of session recordings (Raine Hamilton, KEN Mode, Logan McKillop, Joanne Pollock, Madeleine Roger,). In addition to the cello, Nat carries a nose-flute with her, in case of emergencies.
