BIO

Described as “lush and somewhat mischievous, yet shimmering with melancholy” (Dave O Rama, BC Musician Magazine), Gentle Party is a chamber pop trio that pioneers an expansive sound distinct to their West Coast roots. The distinct voices of each member triangulates to create a sound that is dream-like, pandemonious, playful, and evocative. Harpist Elisa Thorn (The Giving Shapes, HUE) and Juno-award winning violinist Meredith Bates (Pugs and Crows) weave a lush bed of strings with acoustic virtuosity and electronic processing for the hauntingly evocative voice of Jessicka (Hunting, Jessicka) to rest on. Their debut album, Jouska (2017) was longer-listed for the Polaris Prize and enjoys radio play on CBC. Their sophomore album, God Complex, was released in February 17, 2022 and has been described as a “startlingly confident and accomplished second album” (Joseph Stannard, The Wire)
