Director, composer, singer-songwriter and activist, Elisapie Isaac comes from the Arctic.

Through myriad projects, Elisapie has established herself as a true Inuit icon. She was first discovered in 2003 as the director of her documentary If the Weather Permits, a film which thrust viewers into her own origin story. The following year, she released her first album with the duo Taima, winning a Juno Award for Indigenous Music Album of the Year. She has since released two solo albums, There Will be Stars (2009) and Travelling Love (2013). The most recent one was awarded a Félix for Anglophone Album of the Year.

In September 2018, Elisapie will release her fourth album, The Ballad of the Runaway Girl, through Bonsound and Yotanka. In the self-doubt that arose from a tumultuous postpartum depression, Elisapie has found comfort and hope in ancient Indigenous folk tunes. While she was imagining recording an inuit folk cover songs album, inspiration came by simply strumming her guitar and new songs came in naturally. Intimate pieces of her own identity, such as her adpoption, her exodus and the role of women in society, have woven themselves into her work to form a whole. The Ballad of the Runaway Girl is a poetic gesture driven by urgency, doubt, gentleness, sensitivity, grace and motherly love.

— Ambassadrice de la culture inuit, Elisapie représente la beauté du Grand Nord, un peu sauvage, un peu brute. Son prochain album, The Ballad of the Runaway Girl est le conte musical d’une inuk expatriée. Aujourd’hui, déposant un regard plein de tendresse sur son peuple, elle renoue avec ses origines et offre un folk bien habité. Elle se livre, sans détour, racontant son histoire et faisant briller quelques classiques de la culture musicale autochtone. Un retour aux sources, tantôt doux, tantôt cru avec sa façon bien à elle de mélanger l’inuktitut, l’anglais et le français. C’est le projet qui fera découvrir le personnage derrière la musique de son nouvel album.
