Stolen Child by Loreena McKennit


Loreena Isabel Irene McKennitt, (born February 17, 1957) is a Canadian singer, composer, harpist, accordionist and pianist who writes, records and performs world music with Celtic and Middle Eastern themes. McKennitt is known for her refined, warbling soprano vocals. She has sold more than 13 million records worldwide.
She was born in Morden, Manitoba of Irish and Scottish descent to parents Jack (a livestock dealer) and Irene McKennitt (a nurse). She moved to Stratford, Ontario in 1981, where she still resides.

When Loreena was young she wanted to become a veterinarian but she found that music chose her rather than she it. Developing a passion for Celtic music, she learned to play the Celtic harp and began busking at various places, including St. Lawrence Market in Toronto in order to earn money to publish her first album.

Je Reviens and Immobile by Autour de Lucie



Autour de Lucie is a French pop rock band, consisting of vocalist Valérie Leulliot, guitarist Olivier Durand and bassist Fabrice Dumont. Their albums are released in France on Le Village Vert, and in North America on Nettwerk.

Their debut album L’Échappée belle was released in 1993, but was later re-released by Nettwerk and Le Village Vert in 1996 under the title Autour De Lucie with the bonus English-language track “Simon”. Songs were produced by either Paco Rodriguez, Michael Head, or Autour de Lucie, and the album was characterized by guitar-driven songs with infectious pop hooks. It was led off by the buoyant, breezy “L’accord parfait” and included a cover version of the English-language ballad “Island”, originally composed for the soundtrack of the British film “The Wicker Man”.

Their album Immobile pursued the same sound established by their first effort. It was produced by Gilles Martin and Autour de Lucie, and included a few experimental instrumental tracks as well as the catchy, synth-driven “Chanson sans issue (ne vois-tu pas)”. A remix of their song was included as a bonus track and another remix appeared on the compilation wallpaper*mach 1.5 *The sound that surrounds you.
