Anne Bisson Tales From The Treetops on CD

Anne Bisson is a many-sided artist. She first became known as a captivating and charismatic television personality, but in recent years she has been concentrating on music, her first love. A pianist since childhood, she won the prestigious Étoiles Du Maurier competition in 1984 thanks to two of her original compositions. Two years later, she sang the role of Cristal in a new version of the popular rock opera Starmania, which was created especially for the Festival d’été de Lanaudière (Quebec).

In 2009, after more than 20 years of a successful and eclectic career, Bisson released the acclaimed, Blue Mind, in which she was accompanied by Normand Guilbeault (double bass) and Paul Brochu (drums). The critics were unanimous: Anne Bisson is a natural jazz artist. In 2011 she did it again, releasing Portraits & Perfumes, an album of jazz standards ("How Insensitive," "The Nearness of You") with full and sometimes sizzling arrangements, an original cover of Pink Floyd’s "Us and Them," and original pieces, all produced by Guy St-Onge.

In 2014, she makes her welcome return with new album Tales From The Treetops, a beautiful 14-song set which finds the celebrated singer/pianist joined by drummer Paul Brochu, bassists Frederic Alarie and Normand Guilbeault, and cellist Vincent Belanger. All but one of the songs are performed in English. Anne also performs a pair of otherworldly duets with special guest international soprano Suzie LeBlanc

"I feel Tales 'From The Treetops' is the true follow-up to 'Blue Mind' ...a collection of people and their tales we’ve already met in that first album. The themes behind 'Little Black Lake' are still very much present and the characters move around a natural, savage landscape. We will discover still more about the magnificent 'Lady of the Black Lake', as we follow her journey from childhood (I Live in a Treehouse) to her final days (Winter’s Coming). These are songs of emotion, passion, love and mourning..." - Anne Bisson
