About Elisapie Isaac (from her myspace page) "There will be Stars” is the new work of Inuk singer, composer, filmmaker Elisapie Isaac. This, her first solo recording, is the much anticipated follow up to the internationally acclaimed, award winning duo Taima which she co-founded with guitarist / composer Alain Auger in 2001. “There will be Stars” is not so much an album as a seduction from somewhere distant, somewhere other worldly. Sometimes full of joy, sometimes lined with melancholy, at times pop, at times folk, at times sung poems from the north - is it Polar pop? Arctic Electric? New cool? Elisapie Isaac was born of an Inuk mother and a Newfoundland father. She was adopted at birth by an Inuit family and was raised in the isolated community Salluit, Nunavik - the Great North. For Elisapie, the north is not at the top of the world, it’s at the center of her world.

“My grandfather used to say that to avoid getting lost”, Isaac says, “you always have to look where you've come from." "There Will be Stars” is a record that looks to where this artist has come from…here and now. It has been said that the great singers are first and foremost great communicators. Elisapie Isaac’s life’s work has been communicating, first on radio, then on tv and then on film with her award winning National Film Board documentary “If the Weather Permits”. She continues that tradition with “There Will be Stars”. A few listens in and you will start to realize that Isaac has a deep respect for both the profound and the party. There Will Be Stars…the new record by Elisapie Isaac…a constellation of music from her universe. “There Will Be Stars” est la plus récente création de la chanteuse inuk Elisapie Isaac, cette aventurière du Grand Nord dont on connaît également les talents d’auteure-compositeure et de cinéaste. Ce premier album solo fait suite au duo Taima qu’elle a fondé en 2001 avec le guitariste et compositeur Alain Auger.

Ce projet s’était entre autres mérité un prix Juno et de nombreuses accolades des quatre coins du monde. «There Will Be Stars», c’est un regard qui vient de loin, qui voit au loin. Un souffle où s’entremêlent joie de vivre et mélancolie, où se côtoient chansons pop et univers folk, où la poésie des mots salue au passage l’anglais et l’inuktitut. Elisapie Isaac est née d’une mère inuk et d’un père originaire de Terre-Neuve. À sa naissance, elle est adoptée par une famille inuit qui l’élèvera selon cette culture. Son berceau : Salluit, au Nunavik. Pour Elisapie, le Nord n’est pas à l’autre bout du monde, il est plutôt au centre du sien.

«Mon grand-père disait que pour éviter de se perdre, il faut toujours regarder d’où on vient». «There Will Be Stars», c’est le portrait passé, présent et futur de sa muse. Les grandes chanteuses sont avant tout de grandes communicatrices… Elisapie Isaac, elle, baigne dans le domaine des communications depuis toujours. Tout d’abord à la radio, par la suite à la télévision, et enfin au cinéma, où elle remporte de nombreux prix avec son documentaire «Si le temps le permet», produit par l’Office national du film du Canada. L’album «There Will Be Stars» s’inscrit parfaitement dans cette lignée. Quelques écoutes suffisent pour constater le parfait équilibre entre la profondeur et la désinvolture. De la pop nordique? De l’éclectisme en provenance de l’Arctique? There Will Be Stars… le nouvel album tant attendu de Elisapie Isaac.
