"Lucie Blue Tremblay embodies many of the noble elements of folk music's hopes and aims: authentic multiculturalism (she mixes songs in English with songs from her French-Canadian heritage); solid singing (her voice is like a mountain lake--clear, deep, pure); passion (her romantic focus on real-life processes powers her writing); and the unusual (her stunning whistle is one example)"--Laura Post, Sing Out! Quebec singer-songwriter Lucie Blue Tremblay performs her unusual mix of French and English songs on Tendresse. An easy-listening, poetic, album, its highlights include "Absence," "Tour Song," "Montréal," "Daddy's Song," and "Goodbye Song." Transformations is a similar album with Tremblay originals and two covers: Suzanne McGettigan's "A Place in the Woods" and Shari Ulrich/Jean Roussel's "With or Without You." Tremblay's contributions include "Chez Nous," "The Little One," "There Was a Time," and "Getting Old."
