Info for Encounter
Every song on Encounter, BEYRIES’ new majestic 11-track LP, tells a story. Through her unceasing commitment to songcraft, to melody, harmony and lyrics, the album elegantly describes the earnest, fulfilling connections we make along our journey. Composed entirely on her recently restored 1923 Heintzman & Co. family piano, and expanded with lush instrumentation, BEYRIES approached songwriting with a fundamental desire to write songs like the classics from her youth. She kept working at them, until each piece embodied the kind of timeless spirit that leaves a person in awe. Encounter also asks and answers the question that lingers in every songwriter: what’s my story? With this album, BEYRIES dug deep within herself to share her story in a way like never before.
With her debut album Landing, BEYRIES became a sensation in her home province of Quebec simply by being herself. Growing up in Montreal, Amélie Beyries wrote songs at a young age on her grandmother’s piano. For the longest time she kept those songs to herself, not wanting to lose the simple joy of writing and playing. In a sense, BEYRIES lived an entire lifetime before Landing, working in both the food and film industries. Inspired by artists who can create intimate moments with their music, BEYRIES tells simple and honest stories with her lyrics and melodies. Listeners were drawn to Landing, with 11.5K albums sold and 15 million streams across all platforms. The deeply personal connections she’s formed throughout her musical journey have inspired the songs on her new album, Encounter.
is a singer/songwriter and self-taught musician.
From an early age, she took refuge and immersed herself in the beauty of the family piano – the background and reassuring figure of her childhood. Several years later came the desire to share and put into music the melodies that inhabit her, genuine exhalations of her past. The result is soft, powerful, touching and intense music, which has the humble ability to bring people together through universal and timeless themes. Her music is captivating and takes us back to what is essential: the heart.
Beyries is currently working on her first EP, directed by Alex McMahon, after the acclaimed release of her demo song, Soldier.
This album contains no booklet.
