A native Quebecer and veteran of the West-Island based group Plain Folk (Just When You think, 1999, Plain Folk Christmas, 2011), singer-songwriter Isabelle Delage is active on the folk scene as a performer and as co-founder and organizer of the Side Door Coffee House in Pierrefonds, Quebec, and of the Tilted Steeple Coffee House in Morrisburg, Ontario, where she now makes her home.
Released in June 2006, Isabelle's first solo album, titled The Inundation, is a collection of original songs, vignettes that tell stories of life, love, loss and hope. A mother of five, Isabelle draws her musical inspiration from daily life as well as historic and current events, in a vibrant, soothing acoustic sound that has earned her a loyal following.
Isabelle's sophomore album, Songs from My Little Couch, released in March 2018, picks up where the first album left off with songs inspired by Isabelle’s continuing voyage through life, family ties, friendship and the passage of time.
During the 2020 pandemic, Isabelle recorded an album of covers with her singing partner Sam Moss titled Isabelle & Sam - The Lockdown Sessions.
All the music is available on the usual channels.
Praise for The Inundation:
"The Inundation by Isabelle Delage is one of the reasons I became a music reviewer. It is such a wonderful album that we should be shouting about it from the rooftops."
