Biography

Au Revoir Borealis is a collective of musicians from Detroit, Michigan who write songs that are epic, expansive and rather cinematic in nature. The group was formed in 1998 by a few art school friends as an opportunity to experiment and play with sound.

They received much fanfare with the release of their highly regarded debut recording, “Tienken”, in 2000. College radio, music press and online message boards throughout the U.S. and Europe began spreading the word of their soaring sound and beautiful vocals. Since then, they have have attained a loyal cult following of listeners.

They have also been fortunate enough to hold good company by performing with artists such as The Autumns, Jessica Bailiff, Windy & Carl, LN and The Czars to name a few. Their music has also been featured on various compilation projects with artists such as Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins), Mark Gardner (Ride), Twenty Four Gone, Kristy Thirsk (Delerium), Jessica Bailiff, The Autumns, Archer Prewitt (The Sea and Cake), Tanya Donelly (Belly), Warn Defever (His Name Is Alive), Lovespirals, Landing, Violet Indiana, Stars, Yellow6, Surface of Eceon and more.

Now they present their latest album, “Dark Enough for Stars” – a billowy and intimate collection of thoughtful songs anchored by a blizzard of guitars wrapped around the voice of Stephenie Halpert McWalters. This recording reveals a matured sense of songwriting and arrangement by its members and finds them exploring a more organic and orchestral approach to their sound by including pianos, cellos and violins in the mix alongside the waves of reverbed guitar and crashing drums.
