Nationally renowned, Québécois folk-pop musician, Geneviève Racette, has captivated
listeners with her gentle, yet compelling, emotional resonance, and garnered impressive
industry support for her folk-pop tracks ever since her first EP in 2014. Through her
vulnerable lyricism and ethereal vocals, Geneviève has emerged as a rising star in both
French and English-speaking Canadian music scenes.
Satellite, Geneviève's third full-length record (March 2022), is a 9-song collection delivering
honest stories of self-discovery and reflection through the cycle of love. The album filled with
intimate vocals, lush instruments and expressive harmonies, evokes moments of love,
heartbreak, healing, forgiveness and ultimately falling in love again. Like a body orbiting a
star in the silence and emptiness of the universe, a satellite depends on the other to
maintain its orbit, a fragile, solitary and uncertain love. Each of us will find ourselves in this
cycle of love, in this eternal period of beginnings and endings.
The recognition Satellite received upon its release has been even greater than Geneviève has
experienced in the past. With glowing critique from major outlets, including Rolling Stone,
Exclaim!, CBC, Women of Americana, Americana Music Association, Sirius XM and countless
other publications and radio stations, this has undoubtedly been her most successful release
The trajectory for Racette's career has been on a tremendous incline since her previous
album, No Water, No Flowers, which catapulted Geneviève from Quebec recognition to
national praise, including a Canadian Folk Music Award, performing on stage with City and
Colour at Osheaga, rave reviews from media, music publications and blogs, and tracking on
multiple radio stations right across Canada.
As a woman in music, it is essential to Geneviève that she surrounds herself with like-minded
females in the industry. She is proud that over half her team involved in the creation of
Satellite are female musicians and members of the industry. Through fine-tuning her artistic
vision and developing a profound network of professionals, Geneviève approached the
release of this latest record with a newfound creative state of mind and a vision to export her
music across North America and beyond. A feat she unwaveringly conquered.
