An award-winning guitarist-singer-songwriter, considered one of Canada's most electrifying and versatile guitarists, Cécile plays an average of 150 shows per year. She is quickly earning a stellar reputation and a place alongside Canada’s current roster of great guitarists. Powerful and raw with an exceptional stage presence, she is a force of nature whose lyrics and sound make for an enthralling and intimate experience.
She has released four albums to critical acclaim, has been commissioned by the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (Home, a song on immigration) and was awarded the 2013 SPACQ Foundation Edith Butler Award for Excellence in French Songwriting for Gris (2012).

This new CD is packed with amazing talent. Fronting the band is both Rebecca Noelle (La Voix, The Peptides, David Gogo, and The Rumours) and Jeff Rogers (The Cooper Brothers and Silver Creek) on vocals. Both musicians have very successful careers on their own but have decided to bring their talents to the project.
With a sonically monumental performance and an energizing visual display, The Commotions command every room they play, drawing in audiences with their sizzling brass section, thumping backbeat, and sensitive ballads.
Come and join us for our CD release party at Ottawa's Babylon Nightclub on December 1.
