From the Promoter
Montreal-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Geoffroy has been gaining traction and interest since the release of his first EP, Soaked in Gold, in November 2015. After backpacking around the world during his early twenties, the 29 year-old settled in Spain playing music every single day. Back in Montreal, Canada, he wrote and produced his first EP with good friend and producer Max Gendron. His most recent works see Geoffroy’s familiar folk background give way to a more downtempo, electronica/trip-hop inspired sound, following the path of artists such as Chet Faker, SOHN or Sylvan Esso. Carefully crafted and produced, the music truly reflects the singer’s vibe.
Geoffroy’s full-length debut album Coastline was released on March 10th, 2017. Co-produced by Gabriel Gagnon, Max Gendron and Geoffroy, the Polaris Music Prize Long-Listed album features a solid mix of percussions, guitars, analog keyboards and synths, and woodwind instruments. Since its release, the album’s first single Sleeping on My Own has garnered over 3 million streams on Spotify. Geoffroy was also named Apple Music’s Favourite New Artist and his collaboration with Men I Trust, Thirsty, reached the top spot on HypeMachine.
