About the artist
Eve Parker Finley is a noted Montreal multi-instrumentalist, comedian, and new media artist. Braiding a dense and deliberate web of indie pop stylings, string arrangements, and classical naturalism, Finley has been a mainstay in the Montreal independent scene for nearly a decade. Her work has been featured on CBC, Exclaim!, Xtra, Recording Arts Canada, and other outlets. She is also a rising voice in the Canadian comedy landscape, host and creator of Ten Minute Topline with CBC Music, and Symposium Director at POP Montréal.
In The End
In the beginning, the last thing Eve Parker Finley intended to do was make a pandemic album. And yet, when asked about the genesis of her sophisticated and alluring sophomore full-length, In The End, Finley is very specific: “The story of the album starts on March 13, 2020.” In the early days of pandemic lockdowns, Finley began writing little improvisations from her home in Montreal, which she then would post to Instagram.
“I needed some artistic practice to keep me grounded,” she explains. Her initial idea was to write fourteen little improvisations representing the isolation period for anyone with a COVID-19 infection or exposure. But a conversation with friend and fellow multi-hyphenate musician Nick Schofield prompted Finley to consider these improvisations as the early seeds of a new album.
With Schofield and engineer and friend Ky Brooks, Finley set about on a year-long project of reworking the improvisations and writing new material that would eventually find its way onto this record.
In The End is just the beginning of Eve Parker Finley’s next chapter.
Hanorah is a multidisciplinary artist based out of a small studio filled with cats, canvases, and glittered tape recorders in Montréal’s west end. Influenced by the likes of Etta James and Joni Mitchell, the combination of Hanorah’s powerful voice and the vulnerability of her messaging naturally drew her to soul music. Her 2023 EP Time Waits For No Woman was described by the Montréal Guardian "as a poignant rebuttal to the profit-oriented forces that commodify female artists, reducing their worth to their youth [...] the EP stands as a powerful testament to Hanorah’s unwavering resilience and musical prowess."
Following an early record deal, Hanorah released her debut EP For The Good Guys And The Bad Guys in 2019. The record amassed over a million streams, won several awards, and helped her tour extensively through Canada and the U.S.. In 2022, Hanorah released her debut album Perennial through Ensoul records. It was featured on radio stations across Canada and received numerous spots on Spotify editorial playlists. Exclaim! Magazine listed the LP as a ‘staff pick’ for 2022 and she performed tracks on the hit Québec TV show Belle et Bum. A follow-up EP is now in the works.
