FOXTROTT is the sole musical domain of one Marie-Helene Delorme - a self-taught singer, songwriter, producer and beat-maker from French-speaking Montreal. Originally releasing remixes and supplying beats for other local talents, she broke cover as FOXTROTT with her 2012 debut, 'Shields', an emotionally arresting three-track EP. "I was making a lot of beats and stuff, but I needed to express something deeper' she says of FOXTROTT's early gestation.
Quirky, catchy and highly original - of the creative impulses steering the record, Marie-Helene explains, "'A Taller Us' came from a desire for growth, the realisation that one can only become "taller" by embracing the "smaller", more vulnerable parts. Only by diving into ourselves and facing our fears, anxieties and wounds, can we really step out of ourselves to be able to truly give. The songs on this record are very personal, almost like an autobiography of my young adulthood. Exploring themes like love, separation, family, spirituality, doubt, fear - I wrote it in the most emotionally earnest way possible, as a way to heal, and also hoping that it would resonate. I strongly believe we, human beings, are not different, and often, the hyper-personal touches the universal."
