FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9 @ NAC 4TH STAGE, 1 RUE ELGIN ST. - 22h00

Trails is Allie O'Manique, a young, prolific songwriter from Ottawa, Canada who weaves reverb-laden guitars through layers of smoky alto vocals. Trails’ live performances draw the room into a psychedelic haze, looping vocals and guitars while channeling artists such as Mazzy Star and Beach House.

Trails has enchanted Canadian audiences at festivals such as MEGAPHONO and Arboretum Festival, and supported artists such as Tim Hecker, The Wooden Sky, Jeremy Gara (Arcade Fire) and The Acorn. She was awarded the MEGAPHONO artist residency in 2017, and went on to record with Evening Hymns' Jonas Bonnetta, with whom she is currently producing her debut full-length album.

"Leave Her Be" is the first fruit from these recordings; a beautiful but painfully raw recounting of a difficult relationship, delivered with the confidence of a mid-career artist. At 18, Allie is far from it; for Trails, the best is surely yet to come.
