outside I'm a giant
Floating down from Quebec's upper Gatineau, the haunting ethereal sounds of Outside I'm a Giant carry poetic homage to Leonard Cohen. Jeremi Pierre Caron, the songwriter of this touring ambient folk band, drew inspiration from his family's much-loved river hideaway for many of the songs released in their acclaimed 2017 debut album, Point Comfort. Combining acoustic guitar, pedal steel guitar, violin, mandolin, clarinet and harmonica, this four-piece band creates atmospheric, richly layered, heartfelt songs that transport you to a calm and peaceful place. Lingering contemplation of nature and human nature is in abundance here.
