Biography

About Elisapie Isaac (from her myspace page)

“There will be Stars” is the new work of Inuk singer, composer, filmmaker Elisapie Isaac. This, her first solo recording, is the much anticipated follow up to the internationally acclaimed, award winning duo Taima which she co-founded with guitarist / composer Alain Auger in 2001.
“There will be Stars” is not so much an album as a seduction from somewhere distant, somewhere other worldly. Sometimes full of joy, sometimes lined with melancholy, at times pop, at times folk, at times sung poems from the north - is it Polar pop? Arctic Electric? New cool? Elisapie Isaac was born of an Inuk mother and a Newfoundland father. She was adopted at birth by an Inuit family and was raised in the isolated community Salluit, Nunavik - the Great North.

For Elisapie, the north is not at the top of the world, it’s at the center of her world. “My grandfather used to say that to avoid getting lost”, Isaac says, “you always have to look where you’ve come from.” “There Will be Stars” is a record that looks to where this artist has come from…here and now.

It has been said that the great singers are first and foremost great communicators. Elisapie Isaac’s life’s work has been communicating, first on radio, then on tv and then on film with her award winning National Film Board documentary “If the Weather Permits”.

She continues that tradition with “There Will be Stars”. A few listens in and you will start to realize that Isaac has a deep respect for both the profound and the party.
