We are Brighid & Pascale. We met a long time ago (5 & 6 years old) as members of the Viva Youth Singers and we became fast friends. We did several Nutcracker contracts for the National Ballet and sang at The Four Seasons Centre. In between performances we hung out at The Rex and listened to jazz. When Brighid left the choir to focus on violin and guitar, we drifted apart and came back together 6 months ago through our mutual love of songwriting and Joni Mitchell.
We started performing together in January and officially became a duo (Moscow Apartment) in February. In March we started recording some of our songs with Michael Smith (who also happens to be one of Brighid's Dads) and
auditioned for a youth discoveries showcase spot at the Summerfolk Festival. We won, which probably surprised us more than anyone else there. We were so lucky to get a spot at the festival *and* also got to meet the amazing Samantha Martin who has taken us under her wing. We spent a day recording two more songs at Pacha Sounds with Guillermo Subauste and Samantha Martin producing. We are so proud of all six songs. We have already had one played on CBC and another will be this weekend. We have had some positive reviews on music blogs: http://ridethetempo.com/2017/06/06/listen-moscow-apartment/ & http://www.adobeandteardrops.com/2017/05/music-roundup_30.html . We have a bunch of shows coming up including The Open Tuning Festival, Waterstock, The Junction Music Festival, The Winnipeg Folk Festival and Summerfolk.
UPDATE: We were so happy to have reached our goal and to have had the mixing and mastering as well as most of the production covered. We now have the luck and good fortune to work with one of the best publicists in Canada so we are extending the Go Fund Me in case anyone else out there is feeling generous and giving. Thank you everyone.
We would love to be able to get the mixing of the new tracks finished and master all 5 tracks as well as manufacture the CDs before we head out on the road and we would love whatever help we can get. Really any money you can provide is helpful and very appreciated. We know there are many worthy causes out there and feel very blessed that we have a supportive network to reach out to! Any donations over $20 will get you an advanced hard copy of the EP and over $30 will get you a CD and on the guest list for our EP launch party in October.
With much gratitude and thanks,
B & P
